Leona Lewis Trades Blonde Natural Curls For Bone Straight Brunette Long Hair

Leona Louise Lewis (born 3 April 1985) is a British singer-songwriter. She was a contestant in the third series of the British television series The X Factor, which she won.

During her appearance on The X Factor she was famous for her long naturally curly hair which cascaded into tight ringlets down around her shoulders and back.  Many fans of curly hair admired her amazing spirals and ringlets which she showcased on The X Factor.

As Leona's career skyrocketed her image started to change.  Her natural curls, coils and twists were softened into looser ringlets and waves.  Her hair also become lighter and brighter.

The multi-platinum selling artist and three time Grammy Award nominee also started to change her make-up and style of dress.  In a lot of ways Leona Lewis mirrored the transformation of many of the American Idols.

By the time she was proclaimed Top New Artist by Billboards magazine in 2008 and her most successful single, Bleeding Love reach number one in over thirty countries around the world she looked very polished and like the star she had become.

Lewis's debut single "A Moment Like This" became the fastest selling UK single after being downloaded over 50,000 times within thirty minutes of its release.

In November 2008 she set a record in the UK for the fastest selling download-only release with her cover version of the Snow Patrol song "Run" which sold 69,244 copies in two days.

Lewis has released two albums to date, Spirit and Echo, in 2007 and 2009 respectively.

Spirit became the fastest-selling debut album and the biggest seller of 2007 in both the United Kingdom and Ireland, and made Lewis the first British solo artist to top the Billboard 200 with a debut album. It has sold over 6.5 million copies worldwide.

Going Bone Straight And Brunette

The songbird has only begun to hit her stride.  Her debut tour, The Labyrinth, took place in 2010 and made her a media and fan darling.   Her overall transformation has continued.

Last night, on February 8th, 2011, Leona walked the Red Carpet for the premiere of  Justin Bieber's highly anticipated movie.  She wowed the crowds with very long, bone straight, dark chocolate strands framed by a stunning new fringe.

Leona also wore a revealing outfit which showcased her newly trim figure.  Meanwhile, her signature natural curls were nowhere to be seen.

Did the superstar have her hair chemically straightened?  Is she rocking extra hair extensions or is she wearing a stunning lace front wig?

Only her hairdresser knows for sure.

Daily Hair Tip
Whenever possible limit or avoid using a brush on curly tresses. Instead use a widetooth pick or comb with "hair friendly" edges that won't rip or tear fragile curls.
