Before every star seemed to go short, there was Victoria Beckham and her rad gamine crop. But she says you’re not likely to see it again any time soon — and the reason surprised us.

“I loved my hair short, but the great thing about having long hair is you can do so much more with it. It’s a lot easier,” Beckham tells Elle in an interview to promote her new nailpolish line. “For the moment I’m enjoying the fact that it’s actually a lot easier to have the long hair. It’s just effortless. Short hair always takes a lot longer to get looking right.”

Slightly less surprising? That the famously svelte star has a very disciplined food-and-exercise regimen. “You know, I eat very healthily. I eat lots of fish, lots of vegetables, and a lot of fruit,” she says. “I work out every day, six or seven days. I do either Tracy Anderson, SoulCycle, or Barry’s Bootcamp.” (She’s no wimp!)

The star shares a few other fun tidbits about her day-to-day life — including that she and husband David share skincare products, and that she gets very little sleep because she is juggling the sleep schedules of a night-owl teen and an early-bird toddler — and gives a little insight into her perfect day off. “I do quite like to have a day where I’m just hanging out in the house, in comfy clothes, catching up on books that I’ve wanted to read,” she says. “That’s a real treat for me. Just going about with no makeup on.” Even Posh can’t be Posh all the time!
