Iíll show you step-by-step how to achieve the most talked about celebrity
hairstyles from glamourous red carpet updos to the hottest catwalk
It hit the papers, magazines and fashion columns this week
as Cheryl home-coloured her hair a shade of warm red. As well
as a new shade the style icon also opted for gorgeous long
extensions, perfectly plaited into a fishtail design. This
style is simple but stunning and works great with hair that's
got contrasting colours. Here's how to copy Ms Cole:
This gives a great lift at the roots without needing
to spend time sectioning and using rounded brushes.
If you have long or short hair, this style can be worn
at work, or glam it up for a night out - just clip in
To gain the height in this style, after washing,
conditioning and applying heat protection product (e.g.
Thermal Protector Spray), blow dry your hair by
tilting your head upside down.
To ensure your hair isn't flyaway, once you've finished
drying, spray with a smoothing product (e.g. Neal
and Wolf Silk Smoothing Balm) or a light mist of hairspray.
Smooth it with your hands to the nape of your neck.
It's up to you if you want the plait on the side or central.
To get an extra lift, lightly back comb at the crown and cilp
up (for a nice beehive effect - perfect if you dressing up)
The fishtail (or herringbone) is easy to do, if you're
a first timer, just practice once or twice in the mirror.
(An alternative to this is a tight plait, then get a tail
comb and pull section out to give it the messy look)
If you are a first time 'fisher', it's best to secure
your pontytail to the side.
Divide your pontytail in to two sections. Take a smaller
section from underneath one side and cross it over the other.
While holding the hair securely with your thumb, allow
the remaining side of your hand to be free and then take the
same size small section from underneath the other side.
It's simple. Just repeat these two steps until you
reach the bottom. Be careful if you have layers, it can make
it more difficult.
When you reach the bottom, secure with a band. You
can either use the clear 'no snags' ones or ones with hair
