Stacey Solomon is always looking for opportunities to tame her voluminous mane (which she revealed has a mind of it's own on holiday - oh, we've all been there!) so what better way to get an upper hand on the frizz than to opt for a whole head of teeny tiny tight braids, right?


The stunning TV presenter - soaking up the sun in The States - took to Instagram over the weekend to give us a glimpse of her transformation in action as she sat and had her honey-hued locks tended to by an expert braider that managed to take her locks from meh to fierce in just under an hour.

Now that's what we call skill!

The mum-of-two, currently dating Joe Swash, captioned her cute video - which made us feel all nostalgic about getting our hair did on the strip back in the day - "Going back to my 9 year old self and braiding this uncontrollable mop wooooooooooo!" and of course, it wasn't long before the likes and comments came flooding in.

"Lovely.... But make sure you don't burn your scalp in the sun. I say that from experience. Ouch!!" wrote one, while one replied, "Ohhh, I used to get this done on holiday all the time! Love a good braid, can't beat them."

Another wrote, "Memories! I had this done when I was on holiday when I was little! Hope you & Joe are enjoying you're holiday."

Er, where's our passport?!

Even though it looks like Stacey is having a whale of a time now, she was forced to defend herself from bodyshamers while in Ibiza earlier this month.

Stacey had been enjoying a holiday on the White Isle with her two sons and her mum when she was pictured in a pretty pink two-piece. The snaps - which drew attention to her breasts - were then published in the press and soon picked up by the star herself, who took to the opportunity to defend her (fantastic, just saying) body.

Stacey captioned the bikini pic which sat alongside a snap of X Factor's Louisa Johnson, also on the beach, "I LOVE MY BODY."

She continued, "My boobs are a result of being pregnant & breast feeding & I love them. I am just as sexy!"

You tell em!
