Super-glam, 1950s hair is always popular in celebsville with certain A-listers carrying it off so well, they wear it time and time again.

Dita Von Teese is never seen in public without her hair set in retro waves and everyone's favourite rock chick Gwen Stefani is another one who loves to wears her locks coiffed into a '50s quiff or roll...

But Dita Von Teese is the queen of '50s locks!

Katy Perry also does the look well, while kooky pop princess Paloma Faith makes her endless movie-star hairdos her trademark look. Along with red lipstick of course!

So our Lydia is in very good company with her latest fabulous do and we reckon it's the perfect look to go with the former TOWIE lady's sexy, vintage style.

But most importantly, is it a do we can, er, do at home?

Absolutely! To recreate Lydia's look part your hair low over to one side, then grab the front section on the largest side of your parting and pin this out of the way.

Next, scoop the rest of your hair back into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck and twist it up to create a chignon up the back of your head. Secure with plenty of grips.

If you're a bit rubbish at this, try a ponytail which will work just as well. Just make sure you secure it about half-way up your head so it's quite high.

To finish, un-pin the front section of your hair and roll it around your fingers, working it low over your forehead and up at the side. Fix it firmly at the top with Kirby grips, finish with hairspray and you're done.

Just add false lashes, smoky eyes and a perfectly lined pout!
