The TOWIE lady showed off her latest look on Instagram on Sunday (12 October) and gave us a peek at her do from all angles which, as hair and beauty fanatics (especially where those Essex girls are concerned), we loved.
Lydia rocked this braided do for filming of the latest series of The Only Way is Essex in which we've already seen her getting up close and personal with her 'are-they-or-aren't-they?' co-star, James 'Arg' Argent.
And we love it when our Lyds totally embraces vintage glamour as it's something that a) we know she loves and b) she does extremely well!
We're just not sure if we could ever recreate this rather tricky hairstyle ourselves...
Lydia's look has been gently backcombed through the front and swept to one side in a kind of Princess Anne coif.
Then it's been twisted and pinned into various French braids and fishtail plaits around the back of the reality star's head.
"Tonight's hair look #PlaitMeUpBaby," Lydia posted.
Gorgeous... but far too tricky for our untrained hands!
We could definitely manage the front side quiff and would totally be able to nail French braiding the sides and twisting the ends.
But Lydia has also had two Fishtail plaits worked across the back of her hair and pinned above the opposite ear which is a step too far for our slightly mediocre hairdressing skills.
To cheat her look, you could try pinning a couple of fake plaits across the back of your head such as fellow TOWIE star Lauren Pope's Clip-in Plaits, £21.99, hairrehablondon.com.
But they won't look the same.
Oh well, a trip to the salon it is then.
We will not be beaten!
