Sam Faiers enjoyed some fun in the sun this weekend (8 June) while showing off a pretty fab braided hairdo!

While her former TOWIE co-stars have all jetted off to Marbs, Sam soaked up the heat in the UK while lounging in a park with a pal, sporting a sky blue halterneck top and aviator sunnies.

And while we normally spot Sam flaunting enviably long, tumbling Rapunzel-esque curls, this time she styled her ombre locks in a chic summery side braid.

Sam's gorgeous bonce was actually thanks to a custom-made hair piece by Tatiana Hair Extensions, but it's a really easy look to recreate yourself at home.

Here's how:

1. Pick which side you want to have your braid on, and sweep your hair to that side. Sam chose to style her locks on the left.

2. On the opposite side of your head, take a section of hair from just above your temple, and begin to braid along the front of your forehead. As you go, pick up loose strands of hair from the front of your head and incorporate them into your plait, like you would with a French braid.

3. When you reach the other side of your head, at around ear level, continue braiding the lengths of your tresses so all of your hair is included in the plait. Keep going until you reach the tips.

4. Secure with a hair tie before spritzing with hairspray to help keep your 'do in place - even through a day of sunbathing!
