When it comes to style, the TOWIE girls are absolutely killing it as they film The Only Way Is Essex in sunny Marbella this week!

From Chloe Lewis' laser cut kaftan to Danielle Armstrong's tousled waves - there isn't an oh-so-stylish ensemble that has gone unnoticed by us here at Reveal. But it seems that one look is winning ahead of the rest this week as Lauren Pope and Ferne McCann have both been spotted rocking the super cute beach braid. We especially love how Lauren accessorised hers with punky silver rings!

And our Lydia is the latest TOWIE stunner to jump on the braid bandwagon with this gorgeous simple plait and 50s waves combo.

The blonde beauty couldn't give up her trademark bouncy blow-dry even in the soaring heat but she has given her tresses a simple update in the form of this cutesy braid.

The handiwork of hair-styling guru's at Golden Tarts salon in Marbella (it's where all the cool kids go, dontcha know?) Lydia emerged with the pretty little addition which sat beautifully across her crown - and here's how you can recreate it!

Step One:

Firstly, bring your hair forward in two sections. Using the BaByliss Pro Curl Styling Wand, £18.49, wrap sections of your hair around the tong, securing them with the gentle release clamp and hold for a total of ten seconds. For large waves like Lydia's make sure the hair sections you wrap around the wand are of medium thickness to avoid achieving prom-style barrel curls.

Step Two:

Part of this look is about the volume! Grab Sexy Hair's What A Tease Backcomb In A Bottle, £10.09 and just spritz it into your roots. This wonder spray contains a special resin to give you dramatic height that is unrivalled by manual backcombing, plus it's much kinder to the hair follicle so there's minimum damage. Yay!

Step Three:

Now for the braid. Simply take the front section of hair (from whichever side of your head that you prefer) and separate this into three sections. Weave your hair into a simple plait and secure with a clear hair band. Then just pull the braid backwards until it is draped across your crown and secure with some pins.

The guys at Golden Tarts have also had the pleasure of styling Jess Wright's hair during her stay in Spain. We're obsessed with this wrap-over pony tail she sported on a night out with fellow co-stars and because we're amazing, you can follow a simple how-to right here.

Happy days!
