Looking for a bit of party hair inspiration? Then look no further. We’ve teamed up with V05 hair ambassador Aaron Carlo to show you how to create this easy hair how-to. Get ready to transform your party look in less than 10 minutes flat! Let us introduce the rock 'n’ roll side braid, as sported by Nicole Scherzinger on The X Factor recently. It’s all about adding texture, so the longer the night goes on the better it’ll look. Now that’s our kind of hairdo!
Step 1: Side part your hair.
Step 2: Split the smaller side into three sections and begin French plaiting right to the end of the strand. Tie it off with an invisible elastic.
Step 3: Use VO5 Give Me Texture Dry Texurising Spray, £3.79, on the rest of your hair, flip it over to the side and scrunch with your palms to give a tousled waved effect.

Made In Chelsea's Lucy Watson has been our ultimate girl crush this series. We love her straight-talking attitude and, let's face it, she always looks amazing. Which is why we decided to grill her about the beauty products she can't live without. Here's what she's loving…
I love Smashbox Jet Set Waterproof Eye Liner, £16 – it lasts a long time and is the perfect finish to a smoky eye look.
My favourite perfume is Hugo Boss Boss Orange Eau De Toilette, £29.50. I’ve never found a fragrance I like more.
I always use a little of Bed Head After Party , £15.15, before styling my hair. It's really moisturising, so it's great for keeping my hair hydrated.
Urban Decay's Naked Palette, £37, is my go-to for eyeshadow – the shades are perfect for creating smoky or neutral eyes.
My Tangle Teezer, £10.99, is essential for taming any static flyaways. It's also fab for backcombing and giving my hair a little extra volume when I’m out and about.
I find Vaseline Lip Balm, £1.99, great for nourishing dry lips and it adds a gorgeous glossy sheen if you apply it over lipstick.
I keep Witch Blemish Stick, £1.93, in my handbag. The small handy size means I can apply it on the go with no fuss!
Klorane Dry Shampoo, £7.50, is great for lifting roots and cheating extra volume, as well as refreshing my hair in between washes.
I love having Shellac nails; it lasts such a long time and doesn’t chip for at least three weeks!
So there you have it, that's how our favourite Chelsea girl stays looking flawless. Now we know what to add to our Christmas wish list!
