Former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger had a blonde moment in Los Angeles yesterday.

The singer arrived for a meeting with her brunette mane tied back into a ponytail but emerged a few hours later wearing a cropped peroxide wig.

She appeared to be rather taken with the new look, flashing a big smile as she confidently strutted across the street.
