Finalist Katie explains why her hair was cut

Former X Factor contestant Katie Waissel admitted to Lorraine Kelly on her morning show that her former blonde locks had started to break off.

Katie’s hair was so brittle that she had no other option than to have it cut.

Celebrity hairstylist Adam Reed revealed: ‘It was time to make the change and we channelled a bit Edie Sedgwick, a bit Twiggy and a bit Carey Mulligan to get a soft burnt toffee-coloured elfin crop.’

We have to admit that Katie‘s new cut is growing on us!
