TOWIE's Chloe Sims has switched her glorious tumbling locks for a rather elegant updo - and we're loving it!

The reality star tweeted a snap of herself on Sunday (14 July) showcasing a brand new twisted hairdo, featuring a ladylike bun.

And with temperatures soaring in Blighty right now, it's the perfect hairstyle to keep you feeling cool whilst still looking chic.

We spoke to celebrity hairdresser Mark Hill, who gave us a simple step-by-step guide to recreate Chloe's barnet:

1) Start by pulling your hair back into a low ponytail, then twist it upwards to form a roll. Secure the roll with grips and pins. Don't worry about the ends of your hair being neat.

2) Using hair grips, secure a bun ring (try this Large Hair Doughnut, £6 from ASOS) at the top of the roll, close to the crown of your head. Smooth the ends of your hair from the roll over the bun ring.

3) If your hair is long, you can work a section at a time over the bun ring, weaving them over each other until the bun ring is completely covered.

If your hair is short, you can add a hair piece to the top of the roll, then build up the thickness and height with some gentle backcombing. Longer-haired ladies who want even more volume can do this too!

4) Finish the look with Mark Hill Get Gorgeous! Fabulous Finish Hairspray, £5.49, to hold the style, followed by a final spritz of Mark Hill Defrizz-ilicious Bedazzled Anti Humidity Shine Spray, £5.99, for a gorgeous shine.

That's our summer party hair done and dusted then!
