Alexa Chung: I'd be happy bald

Alexa Chung "wouldn't sweat it" if she went bald.

The presenter-and-model loves to experiment with her tresses and has sported a bob, grungy waves and dip-dyed locks. Although Alexa likes to switch up her hairstyle, she wouldn't panic if she suddenly went bald.

"I do a lot of maintenance throughout the day by constantly manoeuvring it into different positions. I put it up, then I put it down. I put it to the side, then leave it down again. I go through about eight hairstyles in a single day," she told Stylist magazine. "All this might make me sound high-maintenance, but I actually wouldn’t sweat it if my hair fell out. I’d probably get one of those bright Jamaican Rasta hats with dreads attached to it and just wear that."

Although the 29-year-old star likes to rock different locks, she warns against drastic hair changes if you are battling heartache.

Alexa believes you should be feeling happy before you decide on a radical haircut or dye.

"Hair is so linked to how we feel and everyone goes for something radical after a break-up, but my advice if you’ve just suffered heartbreak or you’ve broken up with someone, is to not touch your hair," she warned. "It’s the first thing women do, but you’re not in a fit state to make decisions that are long-term – you’ll have to spend the next four years growing it out. Don’t have a fringe cut. Don’t bleach it. Don’t do anything, because you will regret it. Buy a lipstick instead. Go and kiss loads of other people, but don’t f**king touch your hair, as you’ll still feel sad – and you’ll have weird hair.

I always think people’s hair looks really weird when they’re sad anyway.

"Like when Britney Spears got sad and shaved off her hair. That’s the ultimate warning – heed that. If you’re not feeling good don’t do anything to your hair."
