Fergie used to take two hours to do her hair before school.

The Black Eyed Peas singer - who is famed for her glamorous red carpet looks - revealed she hasn't always been so stylish, and had many fashion disasters when she was a teenager.

She told People magazine: "There are many pictures of me from high school and I had the spiral perm and I scrunched my hair. I would take two hours sometimes to do my hair before school, which is ridiculous. Teasing my bangs up to six inches high."

The star - who recently removed her eyebrow piercing after many years - admitted while there was a time when she wouldn't have felt complete without her piercings, she felt it was time for "a change".

She explained: "I've always been really into piercings. There was a time that I really felt naked without the piercings. And, you know, it was time for a change."

The 35-year-old star recently launched her debut fragrance, entitled Outspoken, and she admits the name for the scent is very appropriate because she has trouble keeping quiet.

She revealed: "I had to keep my big mouth shut for two years and every interview I just wanted to burst out and tell people about the updates and where it was going and what the notes were going to be and how I was changing it and I couldn't Say Anything, so that was ironic."
