Bored of throwing your hair up into a messy top knot on the beach but can't be bothered to go full Cheryl Cole-beehive? We get you. Instead we're going to steal Chelsea babe Millie Mackintosh's easy-peasy pom pom braids.

The designer and fitness fan was snapped enjoying her cute look in Palm Springs at Coachella. Her pom pom plaits were created by ghd ambassador Zoe Irwin who has kindly spilled all the details so we can do it too.

Millie Mackintosh's Pom Pom Braids by GHD

Step 1

Blow dry hair with the ghd air hairdryer and round bristle brush.

Step 2

Spray ghd root lift spray and curl hold spray into hair to add texture, then gently backcomb the roots all over.

Step 3

Create a natural centre parting with fingers by zig zagging a finger down the parting then smooth the mid lengths and ends of the hair using the ghd platinum serene pearl styler.

Step 4

Pin and secure two different coloured pom-pom trims into the hair by cross crossing two kirby grips over eachother just behind the ear. Braid into the hair and apply a clear band at the ends to hold the plaits.

Step 5

Gently pull the pom-poms out of the braids so that they’re more visible and pull the braid apart to make it wider. Set with ghd final fix hair spray.
