“Wow, this was back in the early days of my career,” Ellie says

“It was before my career properly took off so I don’t think I was focusing much on what my hair and make-up looked like at the time, but more on my song-writing and performances.”

2010 – at the Q Awards

“I actually really loved this colour,” Ellie says.

“I remember when I was getting ready for the MTV European Music Awards and I had my blow dry, I felt really sexy!

“I was actually a little nervous when my stylist suggested this look but wanted to go with it as I thought it was a little different. It was quite a statement look but I loved it!”

“This was for the 2018 Oscars Vanity Fair after-party,” she recalls.

“I really loved this look! It felt very effortless yet glamorous. This was my natural hair and we just loosely curled it to achieve the tousled look”
