Jessica Alba always tops our fashion lust list, but now we're swooning over her fabulous hairdo too!

The Sin City star looked drop-dead gorgeous as she made an appearance at a photocall at Comic-Con in San Diego, America, over the weekend (26 July).

Looking every inch the yummy mummy, Jessica kept all eyes on her as she flaunted her midriff in a little black bralet teamed with a high-waisted printed skirt.

But our attention quickly turned to her stunning beauty look. Not only were we totally swooning over her warm, bronzed and super-smoky eye make-up, Jess showcased a beautiful braided barnet too.

With the lengths of her brunette locks styled in a sleek, straight 'do, the starlet parted her bonce on the side while sweeping one section back into a French braid.

And thankfully you don't need an A-list hairdresser to recreate her look, it's really easy to do!

Here's how:

1. Start by spraying your locks with a heat protectant before brushing through the lengths and parting on the side.

2. Straightening your tresses is a great way to add shine as it flattens the hair cuticle, helping to reflect light better. Run your straighteners from root to tip for a smooth and glossy finish like Jessica's.

3. Turn your head so you can see the side with the parting. Take the section of hair underneath your parting and begin to plait, incorporating new sections of hair as you go to create a French braid. Keep going until you reach the middle of your head, then secure in place with a bobby pin.

4. Cover your bobby pin by sweeping a few strands of hair from the crown of your head over the top, then finish your whole look with a spritz of shine spray (try Charles Worthington Shine Booster All Over Gloss Spray, £5.99).
