A few days later, Ellie Goulding also revealed that she had opted for a chic layered shoulder-length bob as she headed to a dinner hosted by Balmain's creative director Olivier Rousteing to celebrate the launch of the brand's first UK store. Ellie gave fans a sneak peek of her new look while she was getting ready, and seemed excited about her new look with one of the captions reading 'HAI HAIRCUT'.
Cheryl Fernandez Versini's haircut was a "spontaneous moment"
Ellie is not the only British beauty to have opted for a drastic new style. Cherly Fernandez-Versini surprised her 1.3million followers when she debuted a 1970s-inspired short hairstyle. The 31-year-old had teased fans a few hours before revealing her new look with a photo of salon equipment with a caption that read 'Long overdue...".
The singer's hairstylist Paul Percival, told This Morning that although the singer had talked about going shorter for a while, it was in fact a "spontaneous moment" to go ahead with the cut. "She's the bravest woman in the world because it was in the changing room [at The Graham Norton Show]," said Paul. "We had an hour and we literally cut the whole lot off - 14 inches - and totally changed her look."
Across the pond, Kim Kardashian shocked fans when she stepped out for a pre-Grammys party with rapper husband Kanye West in February rocking a shoulder-length bob, a stark contrast to her world-famous long glossy black locks. Since then, the reality TV star has taken her dramatic new look one step further, changing her hair colour to a platinum blonde shade, which she unveiled during Paris Fashion Week.
