Pixie Lott literally sparkled at the National Television Awards this evening with a very special hairdo that included a sprinkling of gold leaf along her parting.

Is that the best way to make a red carpet entrance, or what?

The 'Lay Me Down' singer joined a whole host of gorgeous people at the NTAs on Wednesday evening (21 January), which were held at the O2 Arena in London and hosted by The X Factor's Dermot O'Leary.

We lost count of the number of ladies who wore floor-length black gowns (Gemma Collins, Chloe Sims, Mel B, Alesha Dixon, need we go on?!), but there was still a splash of colour to be seen on the red carpet – mainly in the form of red, Jessica Rabbit style dresses as worn by Rochelle Humes and TOWIE's Jessica Wright.

Pixie also kept to a monochrome theme, but went very 'Hollywood glamour' by accessorising her embellished Alberta Ferretti dress with sheer, elbow-length gloves and elegant, drop-pearl earrings.

It was her hair, however, that really caught our attention here in the Reveal office.

At first, we thought Pixie had kept both her hair and make-up simple, with nude eyes, barely-there lips and a sleek, side-parted do that was swept back behind her ears and left loose at the back.

But oh no, Lady Lott is far too sassy for that and instead, the Strictly Come Dancing star chose to add some real glitz to her 'do with some intricate gold leaf along her parting.

Now we've seen plenty of gold leaf manicures over the past year – yes, we're talking about you Ellie Goulding, Bella Thorne and Kimberley Walsh – but gold leaf in the hair? Well, that's new... but we like it.

Nice work Holly Rudge (Pixie's go-to hairdresser, fyi). Nice work indeed!

To copy her look at home, a sleek do is the way to wear it, so first get out the gel and slick your hair back into your chosen style – a low ponytail would also look pretty cool, btw.

Once you've styled your hair into place, add a touch of extra gel along your parting as this'll give the gold something to stick to, then use tweezers to carefully place tiny pieces of gold leaf (which you can buy on Amazon) along your parting.

You could also shake gold glitter along your parting for a slightly different look, but be warned, it won't be the easiest thing to shampoo out!
