5 DAYS IN HAIR
Ellie Bamber's hair game is your weekend NTK
By Joanna Kyte, 11 March 2017
Some days, wearing a tiara just feels freaking right and Ellie B is giving major fash inspiration to back you up. Using the end of a tail comb, part your growing-it-out fringe to one side. Then, sweep your locks back into a bun and reach for that crown.
Now that you’ve met Ellie, hair-up days no longer have to be your last resort (yes!). Take your cheerleader pony from slack to statement by tying your hair high (the thinner the bobble, the better the bounce) and curling from the root, section by section.
It’s pretty much the dream to nail sassy just-outta-bed tousled hair but Ellie (ofc) has it down. Match EB’s breezy style by braiding your hair when it’s damp, and when dry, using hairspray to control those fly aways.
Add a fresh option to your usual up-or-down dilemma with EB’s crown braid. Think of it like a fully rounded French plait (practice makes perfect with this style), and remember to pull out a few front strands to give your look an effortless edge.
Psst, achieving top-level glam isn’t as hard as it looks. The secret? Middle-parted hair and a big amount of quality time with your best curlers. Use a finishing shine spray to keep you looking mega all night long.
