Stop what you're doing! Former TOWIE star Lauren Pope has taken to Instagram to show off her choppier, darker and more voluminous new 'do - and we have such a major case of hair envy.

From braids to the classic lob (long bob, duh!) there isn't a hairstyle that the ex-reality star hasn't championed this year but her latest really is to die for.

Yesterday, Lauren shared a sneak peek snap of her Gigi Hadid-esque locks after having paid a visit to famous hairdresser Mikey Kardashian (he also tends to the tresses of Katie Price, FYI!) for her stunning hair-over - and it's fair to say that she's overtaken Khloe Kardashian as our biggest hair inspiration!

Even though it seems everyone from Charlotte Crosby to Holly Hagan is going lighter this summer, Lauren decided to jump over to the dark (ish) side with chocolate brown roots and a whole 'loada caramel-coloured highlights throughout the lengths. Just gorgeous, right?

It wasn't long before Insta-obsessive and hairstyling genius Mikey took to the picture sharing website to show off his amazing work and he provided a complete breakdown of the steps, too!

"Can we just talk about how EPIC my girl @laurenpopey's new hair is!" he wrote as a caption. He continued, "We freshened up her colour taking the root a bit darker and adding some fresh balayage through the front hairline and through the lengths and ends. We also razored her hair a bit shorter leaving the ends choppier. Also that backdrop is pretty insane, @parkplaza #westminster we're obsessed! #hairgoals #baegoals."

Mikey revealed that he took a razor to Popey's lengths to give the final look an edgy, mussed up finish and proved that the ombre root trend is definitely here to stay.

One of Lauren's followers wrote, "Loving your hair Lauren!" while another simply wrote, "Hair goals."
