Kelly Rowland may be wowing X Factor viewers with her luscious locks, but the singer apparently wants to chop all her hair off.

The ex-Destiny's Child star told US magazine Essence: "One day I'd like to cut off all my hair - really close - shaven to my head. It's such a really beautiful look."

Kelly also said she is "in love" with wigs - but hasn't always gone for the right ones.

"I get them custom-made and I have my hairstylist shape them to my head. I can go from short to long in less than a minute," she explained.

"I tried a blonde wig once, and I looked like I should have been wearing a tacky dress with my legs out. I looked crazy. Even a too-light brown hair colour doesn't work for me because it becomes the same colour as my face."

The 30-year-old - who joined Destiny's Child while still a schoolgirl - credits Beyonce Knowles' mum Tina with encouraging her to go for a shorter look.

She revealed: "I remember Tina saying, 'Baby, your face would be so pretty with a short hairstyle. Let's just try it.' I walked out of the salon like a 16-year-old girl."
