Georgia Salpa gave her already-perfect-hair the A-list treatment this week when she popped to see her favourite London hairdresser for a gorgeous blow-dry.

To be fair, we'd have been proud to own the former Celebrity Big Brother star's locks even before she stepped into the salon, but eat your heart out Kim Kardashian, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Jennifer Aniston as Georgia's hair is definitely our most lusted-after now...

Georgia's lush locks are not all her own (yesss!), as she gets some added help from Easilocks hair extensions.

But you'd never know she wore extensions as they blend perfectly with her natural hair texture and colour, which is vital if you don't want to look like you have two-hairstyles-in-one!

We've never seen Georgia's hair looking rubbish, but her latest blow-dry is a beauty and it's all down to her celebrity hairdresser chum, Maurice Flynn at Hershesons, London.

"Perfect blowdry from @mauriceflynn as usual," Georgia Instagrammed along with this gorgeous shot in the salon (above).

The key to a perfect blow-dry is either a) going to a salon to have a professional do it for you (not cheap) or b) setting aside plenty of time to do it yourself – rushing the job will never give you anywhere near as great looking hair as Georgia's.

Now we don't know about you, but we're more inclined to save ourselves a few £££s by attempting to do the job ourselves.

So, here's how...

Arm yourself with a powerful hairdryer that has a concentrator attachment, like the the new ghd Aura Professional Hairdryer, £145, or the slightly more purse-friendly John Frieda Salon Shine Hairdryer, £59.99,

Then follow these tips for the perfect Georgia-esque blow-dry...

1. Go lightly with your styling products. Never overload your hair as this will just cause it to go limp or dull. Choose something that suits your need, ie: mousse for volume or serum for shine and apply just a small amount only.

2. For the first 5-10 minutes, don't worry too much about trying to perfectly tease your hair into place as you dry it. Styling hair when it's wet doesn't work so you can get away with using your fingers to start with.

3. When your hair starts to dry and feels slightly damp only, next comes the most important part – creating your finished shape. And for this you'll need to use a round bristle brush (or a paddle brush if you're after a straighter, more sleek result).

The easiest way to juggle your brush and hairdryer at the same time is to work on small sections of your hair at a time, so work on the underneath layers first and clip the rest up.

4. The key for added shine and less frizz is to point your hairdryer down the hair shaft from your roots to the ends. This may sound easy but it means lifting your dryer above your head which takes a bit of muscle!

5. Work slowly on the underneath section, following your brush with your dryer as it lifts the roots and flips out the ends, and only move on to the next section when your first one is 100% dry.

6. Finish with a little shiny hairspray if you like, but try to avoid applying serum or anything too wet as re-applying too much moisture can ruin all that hard work.

Granted, it's not easy and takes a lot of practice, but once you've got it you'll never look back.

And if it gets your hair anywhere near as fabulous-looking as Georgia's it's worth the effort, right?
