Taylor Swift went from super-short crop to swishy bob at the BRIT Awards last night (25 February) but how did she change up her hair length without an extension in sight?!

The songstress managed to pull off a VERY clever bouffant trick as she hit the red carpet for the star-studded bash.

She was back to her trademark bob later in the night

At first glance, it looked like Taylor had debuted a new super-short, above-the-jaw cut complete with a sweeping side fringe as she posed for paps.

Fast forward a couple of hours later when Taylor took to the stage for her performance of 'Blank Space'... and she was back to her signature shoulder-length style.

Her secret? A cleverly placed bun and some smart photo opportunities (she barely budged from her over-the-shoulder pose once!)

When she finally turned round, Taylor's hidden updo was uncovered

Want to try the faux chop too? Layered, tousled locks and a side parting will help you fool everyone. Start by creating waves with a tong like Remington Silk Curling Wand, £20.99. Stick to large sections so they're beachy and not too defined.

Add some texturising spray like Charles Worthington Volume and Bounce Texturising Spray, £6.99. It'll help your hair sit just where you want it to.

Wind your locks round in a bun placed on the side that your fringe falls. Make sure it's low, loose and flat. Pull out a full strands around the face to keep it natural-looking, finish with a spritz of light hairspray and pair with a side-on smoulder at all times!
