Una Healy has opened up about her split from ex-husband Ben Foden.
The singer explained that she used one method to get over the break up that many people have used before her – getting a new hairstyle
“I wanted a change, my best friend in England, Becky, said, ‘You should go blonde — just do it’ and I was like ‘Yeah, let’s do it.'”
“I had put colours and highlights, but it was always red, it’s kind of my signature red, but I just needed to try something different I had never been blonde, I’d had blonde highlights, but I had never been full-on blonde,” she told the Mail on Sunday.
“So I got the platinum blonde last Christmas and it was just a completely different look, and I felt different actually.”
Una explained that the dramatic new look was an important step in her healing process after the split.
The singer detailed that her new hair signified a new chapter of her life.
“It was important for me at the time, I think I wanted to feel different. It was the start of a transition, and it was part of a transition for a new chapter in my life.”
“I’m really excited about my future and I can leave the past behind,” she finished.
Una’s ex Ben recently remarried to American entrepreneur Jackie Belanoff Smith.
