After leaving Little Mix in December last year, Jesy Nelson took an understandable break from the spotlight. Fans were left devastated, but the singer posted a message on social media days later thanking her fans for all their love and support.

Then silence again... that is until she posted the most phenomenal selfie of what appeared to be her natural curls, with her signature extensions nowhere to be seen. Fans were over the moon to see her face again, with many pointing out her new hair look. One simply commented:"Your hair is perfect."

And so it began, the symbolic hair evolution that would keep us coming back for more.

We did think her curl experimentation might only be temporary, with the sleek extensions re-appearing at any moment. But we were wrong, because Jesy posted again in January, still with the same incredible bouncy curls and divine caramel halo highlights, adding pretty definition to her brunette mane. She credited hairdresser Chris Southern for the look, who revealed on his own IG how he enhanced Jesy's blessed curl pattern:

"For this look I worked with @jesynelson natural texture diffusing with @ghdhair #ghdhelios and defined a few curls with the small tip of the #ghdcreativecurlwand finally for a little bit of texture i scrunched in the total volume foam"

Well, the curls are still going strong, only Jesy's latest post suggests she's embraced shorter layers, and we kid you not, she really suits her new sky-high, curly shag...

We love that you're aiming high, Jesy. Might we suggest a curly mullet next?
