Former The Only Way Is Essex star Lucy Mecklenburgh is famed for her super sleek, perfectly blow-dried tresses but she has just taken to Instagram to show off her brand spanking new, incredibly tousle-y look - and we're in awe!

The face of Barry M has swiftly overtaken EOTB babe Megan McKenna as our biggest hair crush after sharing this stunner of a snap which shows her sporting a full head of corkscrew curls - but she did mention that they aren't exactly natural...

And no, she didn't get a perm. Phew!

Yesterday, gorgeous Ms. Meck decided to weave her bobbed locks into tight braids a la Kim Kardashian and daughter North West and when she took them out she was left with beautiful Ella Eyre-inspired kinks.

Anyone else think she looks HELLA fierce? We do, we do!

Lucy captioned the 90s-esque, urban look: "Plaits out! Curly wurly," and it wasn't long before the likes (we just counted 6,152) came flooding in.

The star's fans had a lot to say about her sassy barnet - and even though we think it looks fabulous - opinions were divided across the board!

One of Lucy's followers wrote, "Permin' hell! I think it suits you better straight," whereas another said, "Stunning. The hair reminds me of Jesy from Little Mix. Viva the curls."

Lucy isn't the only celeb to give the styling tools the elbow, though, as her ex co-star Danielle Armstrong is also sporting the voluminous, au natch look lately.
