Louis Walsh certainly is not the type to hold back on the criticism and has classed Tulisa Contostavlos' previously blonde tresses as "awful".
The 60-year-old X Factor judge took a swipe at his fellow co-judge during a chit-chat with ITV's Kate Garraway during the Lorraine Show.
'Young' singer Tulisa lightened her tresses back in July and was said to have argued with X Factor producers over their dislike of her change in appearance.
However, the 24-year-old ditched the peroxide in place of a more subtle brown last week.
"She's looking really well. She's got the black hair back again, she's looking much better. That blonde thing has gone. It was awful. She's looking amazing," Louis said.
Despite the back-handed compliment, the Irish boyband manger was unaplogetic for his earlier jibe when he branded the singer a chav and defended his comments during his televised interview.
"She is a chav in a tracksuit! She's a nice chav and she's got a nice tracksuit," he told Kate.
