Rochelle Humes is often complimented on her hair, and has been known to experiment with different styles over the years. The TV presenter tends to wear her brunette hair straight – but has vowed to change this following a heartbreaking revelation from her young daughter, Alaia-Mai. The doting mum-of-two took to Instagram on Tuesday, telling followers that her little girl recently told her that she didn’t like having curly hair, because "she didn’t look like a princess". The Saturdays singer went on to explain that she was worried that she had encouraged her daughter's way of thinking by frequently straightening her own hair in front of her.

From now on, Rochelle has decided that she will embrace her natural beauty, telling fans: "My four year old little girl Alaia has been telling me for a while that she doesn't like her curly hair, at first (as us Mums do) I didn't think it was a big deal. Once I realised this wasn't a phase I asked her why she didn't like her curls. It broke my heart when she told me it was because she didn't look like a Princess, and I quote 'I don't Mummy because Elsa and Rapunzel have long straight hair'".

She continued: "It then dawned on me that maybe this issue started closer to home because, all she has ever known is her Mummy to style her hair straight, when in fact mine is naturally curly too. So moving forward into the NY I decided to finally embrace everything that make me ME. She is already over the moon that we have 'matching hair'!! My curls are a far cry from what they used to be but, I'm hoping with less heat and a little TLC they will come back to life. So this is for you Alaia-Mai, Mummy's hair IDOL."
