Jay McGuiness' face fear

Jay McGuiness is glad his “trusty hairdresser” could sort out his tresses after Max George cut them.

The Wanted star was renowned for his curly locks, which were long and bouncy up until last month. His bandmates Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes regularly joked about giving him a makeover, with Max taking matters into his own hands. He shaved part of Jay’s head when drunk and the singer now sports a mainly cropped style, with some longer strands on top.

“Thankfully our trusty hairdresser Nick sorted me out and made me look half decent. I’m getting used to it. The only issue now is – you can see my face,” he told British magazine Heat.

Max doesn’t feel guilty about turned the razor on his bandmate, but it’s made Jay think more carefully about the time he spends with the star.

“I learned never to let Max loose with clippers when he’s had a drink,” he laughed.

The Wanted spent a lot of time in America to film their reality show The Wanted Life and Jay’s curls were a particular hit with the girls over there. The band were left shocked by one incident involving the heartthrob’s locks.

“They are different over here,” Max said of American fans. “Someone asked for a lock of Jay’s hair and they ate it. She took it off him and she swallowed it, so that was quite weird.”

“I can’t explain the thinking behind that,” Jay added. “What’s weird is, I live in a world where quite a few people ask me for locks of my hair and I don’t need all of them so I am like, ‘Sure why not?’ and I cut them a piece off. She is the first person I know who has ever ingested my hair, which is very strange. But each to their own.”
