X Factor 2012: Simon Cowell jealous of Gary Barlow's hair!

X Factor boss Simon Cowell is reportedly jealous of Gary Barlow's hair cut!

In one of the more bizarre stories of the week, it's been reported that Simon even wants to change his trademark hair style to match Gary's!

It was reported this week that Gary and Simon are no longer talking, with Simon reportedly annoyed that ITV had rehired him for a second series.

And now Gary's hair is also getting on Simon's nerves.

An "X Factor source" told The Sun today: "Simon’s make-up girl and hairdresser showed him a feature in Vogue that said Gary had the No1 requested haircut.

“Simon read it, every single word, had a think and then sent her away to explore new hairstyles.

“Everyone was having a chuckle about it when they heard."

The insider added to the tabloid this morning: "They nicknamed Simon’s barnet The Cowbell, but it’s no longer for this world.

“He has spared no expense on the old research either. They are presenting him with computer-enhanced hairdos with his face attached for him to approve.”

Any new hair cut from Simon Cowell would certainly prove a distraction from Louis Walsh's new hair for this year's series, which Tulisa described as "miracle sprout".
