Get wavy

Lily's queen of the lustrous locks, and the best news? This tousled curled look is super-easy to nail. Use tongs to curl your hair in wide sections, starting halfway down the head to avoid any OTT scenarios up top. Brush out lightly, then neaten and hair spray into place on one side. Saturday BNO just upped its game.

Up top

Fun fact about Lily (from a true superfan, FYI), is that a bun is to her, what dry shampoo is to day-two hair: a lifesaver. Achieve the look by scooping all your hair up onto your head, and start securing as if you're tying a pony tail. As you pull it through the tie, avoid pulling all the way, securing more of the hair with each twist of the elastic. Hair heaven, right there.

Shine on

Lily's straight locks are worthy of a hair ad: glossy beyond your wildest dreams. After you've washed your hair, condition with some smoothing products (like this Ouai fave) and blow dry with a diffuser. Then, brush using a Tangle Teezer, part in the middle and straighten from root to tip. Finally, tuck behind your ears and finish with a spritz of hold spray. Shiny, shiny.

Braidy bunch

Another variation on her go-to center-parted 'do, Lily spices things up via two Dutch braids. Take two small sections of hair on either side of your parting and braid, tying the first section up with a mini elastic while you tackle the second to keep it from unraveling. Once both are done, pull together with the rest of your hair to make a low bun at the nape of your neck. Monday hair, handled.

See ya chignon

Bun 3.0 comes in the shape of a sleek, low number fit for the red carpet (or IRL, date night). Nail it by creating a centre parting (Lil's hair happy place), and gathering at the nap of your neck. Tie into a neat bun with a hair-colored tie then tidy any rogue fly aways by spritzing hair spray to a brush and combing back towards your bun. Finish with red lippie and glitzy earrings for va-va-voom feels.
