Kimberley Walsh's grooming holiday
Kimberley Walsh thinks one of the best things about Girls Aloud being on hiatus is that she doesn't have to make so much effort with her appearance
Kimberley Walsh loves the "low-maintenance" lifestyle of not being in Girls Aloud.
The 28-year-old singer admits she had got bored of being groomed by a stylist before the band went on their hiatus but now feels like she is having a "treat" when someone else does her hair and make-up for photoshoots.
She explained: "I like my low-maintenance lifestyle, it's a bit wash and go, so it's quite nice.
"But when I do the odd photoshoot and TV stuff, I do get excited about getting dressed up because it's not every single day.
"By the time we took our little break, we were literally like, 'I cannot have my hair pulled again' because if it's every day it doesn't feel like a treat anymore. But now it does and I'm grateful not to have to do it myself."
Despite enjoying her relaxed appearance, Kimberley insists she can't wait to reunite with her bandmates - Cheryl Cole, Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts and Nadine Coyle - later this year.
She said: "I will get excited because we do miss each other and as much as it is crazy mayhem it is good fun and it is nice having the girls to support you.
"It's different being on your own - bittersweet. There's good and bad to everything isn't there?"
