Nicola Roberts is our go-to girl for retro hairstyles but last night (24 September) she went for something a little more understated with straight, glossy locks.

The former Girls Aloud star swapped vintage curls for a simple 'do but it gets a big thumbs up from us!

She kept her outfit minimalist too with a monochrome colour palette, leather skinnies, a slogan tee and strappy heels as she attended the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launch party in London.

Proving it's not just brunettes that can nail shiny hair, Nicola rocked swish-worthy tresses with a whole lot of gloss.

To recreate the look, apply a moisture-boosting hair oil to the mid-lengths to ends of towel-dried hair. We love Dove Hair Pure Care Dry Oil Nourishing Treatment, £9.99.

Blow-dry it straight using a brush - with a side parting for a real Nicola-esque look - and follow with a blast of cool air.

Straightening your hair is key to upping the shine factor as it flattens the cuticle and reflects the light better.

Top it all off with a spritz of finishing spray like Lee Stafford Shine Head Spray Shine, £5.49.

Done, done and done!
