The X Factor judge is famous for her bouncy locks and features as a spokeswoman for Herbal Essences.

And 25-year-old stood out from the competition with her naturally gorgeous hair.

In August of last year, the shampoo brand invited Facebook fans to post photos of their best pose and pout as part of their hair competition and the Cork native has emerged as the winner.

“I was really excited to enter when I first heard about the Herbal Essences competition but had no idea I’d get so far," she explained.

"In fact I was so convinced I wouldn’t win that I even changed my balayage to a natural brown colour after I entered. The whole experience has been a fairytale and dream come true”.

As part of her prize, Vera featured in a two page spread in Heat magazine, was the guest of honour at the Herbal Essences #ScherzingHair wrap party and a year's supply of Superdrug products.
