Caroline Flack is clearly in the mood for plaits this summer as this is the fourth time we've spotted the Xtra Factor presenter wearing her hair in braids!

This time, Caroline went for a rather fabulous fishtail halo braid... and we've found the perfect way to cheat her look.

Caroline posed on Instagram this week with this fabulous close-up of her latest hairdo while filming at the judges' houses for this year's series of The X Factor.

"It SO hot. Judges houses heat wave," she posted, proving that her do was not just a fashion statement, but the perfect way to keep her hair off her shoulders in the heat!

Caroline's hair had been braided up and around her head, creating this gorgeous halo effect – a style we've seen many of our favourite celebrities rocking, including Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian.

This is not Caroline first foray into the world of plaits as in the last four months she's styled her hair into many a twisted do including tiny braids (above), fishtail plaits and even schoolgirl pigtails (below)!

And we're particularly loving Caroline's latest do – for its do-ability alone!

Yes, it might look like a tricky little number to copy, but if we told you you could re-create it in a matter of minutes, you'd be so up for it, right?
