Lily Allen: I'd never shave my head

Lily Allen would be willing to dye her locks for a good cause.

British songstress Jessie J is having her locks sheared to raise money for UK event Comic Relief, which helps a variety of good causes.

While Lily wouldn't follow in her pal's footsteps, she is willing to compromise.

"No [I wouldn't shave my hair like Jessie J]! You can't shave my head!" she exclaimed, when asked by BBC Radio 1, before adding: "Yeah, I would dye my hair!"

Jessie will let the clippers do their work on live television tomorrow.

Lily is wondering how her friend will cope with her new look.

"She has a good fringe - not for long though! What do you mean how long is she gonna have [a shaved style] for?! Till it grows out!" Lily laughed.

"I was talking to her about it and she said she won't wear a wig, otherwise there's no point [in doing it]."

The 27-year-old currently sports brunette locks.

However, Lily admits she has toyed with the idea of a drastic style overhaul.

"I did ask my hairdresser how long it would take me to go white-blonde, and she said six months! In order to keep the condition," she explained.

Whereas the mother-of-two would be reluctant to chop off her locks, Jessie is looking forward to the experience.

"[It] is something I've promised to do for a long time and Comic Relief has given me the opportunity to try and raise as much money as possible for good causes by doing it," she revealed.
