We know it’s hot girl summer and all, but this year’s Love Island has given us all the inspiration to one up our fashion and beauty game.

From Mary Bedford and Millie Court nailing all the Tik Tok trends (and inventing their own, tbh) to the £9.60 cleanser of dreams that has been spotted in the villa.

The girls are also bringing back some 90s hair looks, with French braids, space buns and half up/half down hair becoming the hairstyles that we all want to recreate.

Luckily for us all, Millie and Liberty, with some handy help from Cloud Nine (the official hair sponsor of this year’s Love Island) have shared some handy hair hacks so we can replicate their locks.

As well as spotting Islanders using Cloud Nine Cordless Iron Pro hair straighteners and The Airshot Pro hairdryer, croc clips and a paddle brush, Millie and Liberty have been raving about Cloud Nine’s Quick Dry Potion.

The magical potion reduces hair drying time by 50 per cent, meaning that your hair is exposed to less heat – perfect for when you’re in the Mallorca sun all day. It also tames frizz and flyaways AND is blended with leave-in conditioner to strengthen from any heat damage.

Liberty explained that she sprays it on her hair before blow-drying, “My hair is so thick and this really speeds up the process!”

"[The hairdressers] come in every two weeks and we get our nails done, lashes and sometimes our extensions done”, she told Closer.

"You can kind of going for anything you want but you can't change the colour of your hair because then people will just not recognise you anymore.

And in a interview with Vice, Iain Stirling revealed that although the early series of the show were much more ‘do it yourself’ in the preening department, the stars do get hair and beauty support once in a while, especially on the final night.

He explained, "There's more professional support with hair and beauty now, I think.

"If you jump on ITVHub and watch the early series, by the end they all look quite scruffy – now they don't."
