    Calling all X Factor fans! Do we have a treat in store for you. We’ve got our hands on a money-can’t-buy backstage pass to catch all the behind the scenes at the X Factor studios. And we’ll be giving it away on Twitter today.


    Not only that, but the lucky recipient will receive an exclusive makeover by the X Factor’s very own resident style team.

    Award-winning hairdresser of the year, and the X Factor’s very own hair stylist, Jamie Stevens, will cut and style your barnet, while you sit back and relax in the very same studios as Little Mix, Amelia Lily, Misha B and Marcus Collins.

    Once your hair is X Factor ready, legendary make-up artist Natalya Nair, who applies all those beautiful finishing touches to the contestants, will be on hand to completely transform your look.

    But a makeover wouldn’t be complete without a brand new outfit. Get some inspiration by having a nose around the X Factor fashion cupboard and be the first to see what the contestants will be wearing in the semi-finals.

    The X Factor’s in-house stylist, Laury Smith, will be backstage to offer you shopping and styling tips, before you receive £100 of M&S vouchers to spend on whatever outfit you choose to complete your X Factor Style Team Makeover.

    All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning this exclusive prize is follow Marie Claire on Twitter and tweet the following message exactly as it is below…
