Lauren Pope went for a braided mohawk during filming of the latest episode of The Only Way is Essex this week.

The TOWIE star always has pretty amazing hair – courtesy of her very own clip-in hair extensions range, Hair Rehab London – and this latest half-up do is up there with the best of them...

Lauren treated us to a couple of snaps of her do on Instagram on Tuesday (15 July) and even gave us her tips on how to re-create her look at home.


"Create a thick braid down your centre parting and two small braids either side of your face," explained Lauren.

"Pull all braids back and continue the full top braid incorporating the smaller braids. Easy Peasy!"

If only it were that easy, however!

Here are a few extra tips...

1. First, grab a large section of hair from the front of your head and French plait this to just below your crown, picking up extra pieces of hair as you go.

2. Secure this with a band, then plait two tiny braids on each side of your French plait, working with just a small section of hair from your ear up to your braid. Secure the ends, before moving on to the next.

3. When these are done, untie your French braid, pull the top two plaits back and twist them into your thick braid.

4. Repeat with the bottom two plaits, then secure the whole thing with a covered band.

OK Lauren, you're right, it is pretty easy!

And a great festival look, don'tcha think?
