Lydia Bright’s hair at 2012 TV BAFTA Awards

I have a soft spot for Lydia Bright as you know, and at last night’s TV BAFTA Awards she looked particularly lovely on the Union Jack carpet wearing a full-length, embellished dress that will be available from her boutique, Bella Sorella, fresh make-up and a soft updo courtesy of celeb hairdresser, Mark Hill.

If you want to steal Lydia’s hair style (if mine’s long enough I might try it for one of the Jubilee parties I’m off to at the weekend), the peeps at Mark Hill have sent me the following three-step instructions:

Step 1: Spray your roots with volume spray (Mark used Big Night Out, Supersize Me Volume Spray) and blow dry with as much volume as possible.

Step 2: Gently smooth the hair into a low slung side ponytail. Use your fingers to twist small sections of the hair around each other to create a chic chignon.

Step 3: Use a diamante hairband to add extra glamour and finish with a spritz of shine spray (Mark used his Defrizz-ilicious Bedazzled Anti Humidity Shine Spray)
