Pixie Lott is getting us totally in the festival mood with this fabulous, multi-coloured hair stencilling.

Clever, cute and a cinch to copy at home – now that's the kind of celebrity trend we like to see!

Pixie has been super-busy working on her new album and shooting the video for her new single, 'Lay Me Down' in Cannes these last few months.

And she's been nailing some pretty fabulous beauty looks as well.

We loved the graphic eyeliner she worked last week for her live performance on Blue Peter in Gateshead. And did you see the super-bright, purple pout she rocked on Instagram a few weeks before that?


This cheeky bit of hair stencilling, however, may well top the lot – especially as we're right in the swing of the festival season and this is the perfect festival hair look.

Pixie's stencils were created by her go-to hairdresser, Holly Rudge, but as we don't all have Holly at our beck and call we're just going to have to recreate the look ourselves. Here's how...

First, purchase some hair or body stencils like the The Glitter Tree Glitter Tattoo Body Art Stencils, £3.85, amazon.co.uk or Sheet Henna Stickers, £2.99, amazon.co.uk.

Then arm yourself some temporary hair colour like Bumble and Bumble Spray Chalk, £15 each, boots.com or Fudge Urban Hair Chalks, £5.99 each, superdrug.com.

Stencil designs won't keep their shape on loose hair, so smooth down the section of hair you want to stencil and either grip it back over your ears like Pixie, or tie it back into a ponytail.

Next, simply place the stencil over your hair and spray or work your colour carefully over the top, remove the stencil sheet and you're sorted.

Try this look one day, Miley Cyrus' fabulous face painting the next and you've nailed a weekend's worth of festival beauty looks just like that.

Now, let's just pray for sunshine...
