Every Friday afternoon in the LOOK office, a small crowd of girls gathers round the Beauty Desk, waiting for Katie, LOOK’s very own Beauty Writer, to skillfully style their hair for their Friday night out. She straightens, twists, plaits and sprays their hair into gorgeous Bardot-inspired bouncy down ’dos and sleek plaited updos – and teaches them how to do it themselves at the same time (she’s multi-talented is our Katie). It’s become such a ritual in the LOOK office that we thought we’d share it with you…

This week, Katie shows you how to do a plaited bun – a really simple but effective hairstyle that doesn't require a hairstylist. This low-maintence hairstyle has been worn on the red carpet by celebrities including Sarah Jessica Parker (a super-high and glossy version), Natalie Portman and Kristen Bell (who also decided to add another plait around her plaited bun for extra impact).

Just scroll down to watch the hairstyle how to video below to get the look youself. Enjoy.
