New Year, New Hair! Cheryl has unveiled a gorgeous new hair transformation after lightening her locks because she "wanted a change". The Greatest Dancer coach showcased her new do on Instagram on Thursday, revealing hairstylist Shane O’Sullivan was responsible for the colour change.

"I am trying a walk on the lighter side for 2019. I’ve been chocolate for over 3 years now and I wanted a change," Cheryl wrote, revealing she had asked her stylist to match her colour to some clip-in hair extensions from her Easilocks range. "Thanks for the colour match @shane_o_sullivan I am now officially fudge brownie in my own @easilockshair range."

Cheryl collaborated with Shane on the hair extensions range, which she excitedly launched in November. On the website, Cheryl says: "Myself and Shane [O'Sullivan] have been developing a new range of products for Easilocks. As a brand lover, the experience has been amazing. I've been wearing and testing Easilocks for a long time now. We've based this collaboration on my 'GO TO' looks, favourite shades and with Shane's expertise and innovative techniques in hair processing we've really brought hair extensions to a whole new level."

The 35-year-old’s new look also marks the end of her nine-year contract with L’Oreal. Cheryl had been a spokesmodel for the beauty brand since 2009, and fronted a number of their campaigns – including their Casting Crème Gloss hair colourants. In a statement released after the contract ended, Cheryl said: "I have had an amazing experience as L’Oreal Paris’ UK spokesmodel for the past nine years and have loved working with the team over there. It always felt like more than a partnership and I would like to thank them all for the opportunities it has afforded me."
