Khloe Instagramed this pic on Tuesday (25 June), showcasing her uber-chic 'do by celeb hairdresser Jen Atkin.

And Rita was hot on her heels, snapping her cute twin plaits the next day whilst puckering up in Malta.

Follow our simple step-by-step guide to steal their style (it's easier than it looks, promise!):

1) First up, choose where you want your plait. If you're brave enough, go super-high like Khloe, or keep things simple with two low braids like Rita. Section off the hair, gather into a ponytail, and secure with a hair tie the same colour as your tresses.

2) Split your ponytail into two parts. Take a very small section from the outer side of one of the parts, then cross over to the other side, allowing it to join with the opposite section. Make sure you keep everything tight!

3) Repeat Step 2, but on the opposite side. Continue crossing over small sections of hair until you reach the end of your ponytail.

4) Once you've finished, secure with a hair tie. Keep the first hair tie in place for a fierce look like Khloe, or carefully remove it for a more laid-back vibe.

Make like Rita and add a bold pout - we love Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Jardin de Plantes, £17.50.
