Alex Nation takes hair inspiration from singer Leigh Nash

She revealed her struggles to find a job after starring on The Bachelor and admitted it triggered her anxiety.

But Alex Nation proved she was determined to look past her personal woes as she enjoyed a sun-soaked day on the beach, where she showed off a messier cropped ‘do.

The 26-year-old reality star said she looked like Leigh Nash, the singer from Sixpence None The Richer, thanks to her chic blunt bob.

She wrote: ‘Dawson’s Creek eatcha heart out! You can’t tell me my hair doesn’t look like the chick from Sixpence None The Richer. #kissme (sic).’

It comes after Alex revealed how she has struggled to find a career once The Bachelor finished filming, all the while feeling everyone was waiting for her to fail.

In a frank Instagram post on Friday, the single mum also revealed she was toying with the idea of pursuing a career as a writer.

Writing a lengthy caption alongside a picture of a love heart, Alex explained how she feels her life has been ‘extremely disorganised’ up until this point.

‘I guess the problem being I have an internal battle with myself thinking I should already know. I’m 26, I should probably have it all figured out right?’ Alex mused. 

‘At times, I’m completely lost in the dark and I begin to entertain anxious thoughts.

‘On the flip side, when I dig deep inside myself for questions I find wonderful answers and I trust my gut.’

‘I felt as though people were watching in the wings to see if I succeed or fail (its [sic] way juicier if I fail). 

‘I came to find I was doing things to impress complete strangers and not myself. It was all so f**king warped I can’t even begin to put it in words.’ 

Revealing she often put up an amazing ‘charade’ to hide how she truly felt, Alex ended her post by thanking her son Elijah, seven.

She also had a short-lived stint on community radio, but her show was axed in January after eight months.

Following in the footsteps of other Bachelor contestants Alex has also done several sponsored Instagram posts – most memorably spruiking period pain medicine with her dog.
