Natasha BedingfieldCourtesey of John Frieda

You don’t have to be a California girl to have gorgeous blond strands. Just ask British songstress Natasha Bedingfield. “I’m a natural blonde, but I do get highlights. I’m very blond in the summer and golden in the winter,” she told InStyle at a concert kicking off John Frieda’s Blonde Entourage campaign in New York City. While touring for her last album, Pocketful of Sunshine, the Grammy-nominated singer didn’t have time for regular touch-ups, but she wasn’t too concerned. “I like to have my roots peeking out for an edgier vibe,” she said. Beauty appointments aside, there’s one thing Bedingfield always makes time for: “Chocolate! I never deprive myself, although right now I’m trying to be good to get in shape for my next tour,” she confessed.  Her fix? “I’ll have chocolate protein shakes. They’re not quite as good as a big bowl of chocolate ice cream, but they do the trick.”
