We knew that live television ran on a tight deadline, but we didn't realise quite how tight. We've just caught up with the show's chief hairstylist, Ben Mohapi, and he's as much in the dark as the rest of us when it comes to what the contestants will look like tomorrow night. ‘I'll probably get told what they're wearing sometime over breakfast or lunch tomorrow,' says Ben, ‘then have to get 17 looks turned around asap!' He did, however, let on that Girlband will have a more relaxed, cooler look this week (‘no more cartoon dresses and cartoon hair!') and that he hopes to achieve a more polished style with Laura. But he'll have to fight it out with the judges, who have the final say when it comes to the contestants. While Simon and Louis are reasonably laid-back about the whole thing, Ben told us Dannii and Cheryl are, er, ‘very vocal' with their opinions. With hair like hers, we'd make Cheryl our champion any day...
X-Factor hair is all up in the air...
