Cheryl Cole first walked into British living rooms (and hearts) in the fall of 2008 when she competed in the reality show “Popstars: The Rivals” on ITV. Her win secured her place in the girl group, Girls Aloud and catapulted her into immediate stardom. She has won dozens of awards including Virgin Media’s “Hottest Female”, Glamour’s “Woman of the Year” and Style Network’s “Style Icon of the Decade”. Cheryl Cole is a triple-threat of sorts who has been recognized for her wardrobe, musical talents and looks. Despite this we’ve noticed something about her that is underrated: her hair. Aside from being drop dead gorgeous Cheryl Cole has some of the most phenomenal hair Hollywood has ever seen.
How To Achieve Her Look:
Cheryl Cole’s full, long and bouncy hair is a source of hair envy for us. Whether she wears it straight, wavy or curly it always looks flawless and complements her outfits perfectly. She can even make a messy ponytail look great. In this photo Cheryl ditches her trademark waves for a messy up-do that is easy to replicate. All you need it a wide barrel curling iron (about 1 ¼ inches), a teasing comb and some heat protectant.
The key to nailing this look is to start with hair that is a little dirty. Freshly washed hair will not be able to hold the amount of volume that Cheryl has at her roots so make sure to wash your hair the day before you try this out.
As you’re waiting for the curling iron to heat up lightly spray a thermal protectant throughout your hair to protect it from the high heat. Tie half of your hair up with a hair tie. Take one inch sections of the loose hair a begin curling. After you’ve finished with bottom section remove your hair tie and start curling the rest of your hair. Once you’ve finished you will have loose, volumized waves.
Take small sections around the crown of your head and gently tease them to create just a little bit of volume. The teasing will also help to make the hair look a little less polished. Finally, pull all of your hair back into a loose ponytail. If you have bangs part them in the center, if not then free a couple of strands of hair to frame your face.
