Cheryl Cole puts her hair in a high ponytail to look taller on the beach.

The 'Fight for This Love' singer - who stands at 5ft 3in - likes to appear as statuesque as possible when she hits the beach but as she won't wear heels, she finds other ways.

She said: "Give yourself some height - without heels - by pulling your hair into a really high sleek ponytail."

While she'll put her hair up for the beach, Cheryl recently revealed she feels "close to heaven" when she has Big Hair.

The ousted US 'x factor' judge - who has been sensationally dropped from the pop star search show - caused a stir with her bouffant locks at the first auditions last month but despite criticism for her look, the British beauty insisted she was pleased with her appearance on the day.

She said: "I love that style. I felt really glamorous with it.

"The bigger the better I always say - The Higher The Hair, the closer to heaven. I can do it myself after all these years of practice."
