Cheryl’s looks from noughties to now

Cheryl scored a string of hits as a member of Girls Aloud between 2002 – 2013. In 2009 she embarked on a solo career and hit Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart with her debut single Fight For This Love selling over a million copies.

The Geordie singer has had 5 UK number 1’s and 10 top 40’s; Chezza first graced our television screens in 2002 on Popstars: The Rivals, when she won a place in girl group Girls Aloud. From her National Lottery scratchcard days and her huge solo career, to her stint as an X Factor judge and becoming a mum, we’ve watched Cheryl grow from a teenage Geordie lass into what many would call a national treasure.


As a five piece the girls shifted 4.3 million singles. Their best-seller is their debut hit, “Sound of the Underground,” with 653,000 sold.

From her eyebrows to her hair extensions, here’s how her look has changed over the years.

2012 was a highlight of Cheryl’s solo career, with her single ‘Call My Name’ becoming the fastest selling number one single of that year. The extensions came out and her style became sleeker and more natural.
