Miss Universe Ireland Lisa Madden has revealed that she hated it when her hair was cut off on Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model.
The 22-year-old is currently in Miami competing at the Miss Universe pageant and is glad her hair has grown back in time to prepare for the competition.
"For me, my big thing was my hair because they cut it all off on Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model. I looked like Harry Potter," she told VIP magazine.
"Thankfully my locks are back now. I've also been going to the gym a good bit. Because there's an interview round, my mum has been grilling me at home at the dinner table each night with questions."
The brunette beauty also admitted that getting to the final four on the TV show has toughened her up for the pageant.
"I have dealt with awkward enough situations and I think in a pageant you have to try to be yourself whereas with modelling you kind of have to adopt a persona depending on the photoshoot."
