Mrs Briggs star Sheridan Smith, 31, wowed us with her retro hairstyle at last week’s National TV Awards. Here’s how to steal her look

Step 1. This look works best on day-old hair so if you’ve just washed yours, spritz Lee Stafford I Hate My Hair The Day It’s Washed Solution Spray, £6.19, Boots, through to get the right texture

Step 2. Keeping the front section loose, begin backcombing hair at the top of your head, and spritz each section with L’oreal Elnett Satin Normal Strength Hairspray, £6.60, Boots, to hold

Step 3. Once you have backcombed the top section all the way back to the crown, gently brush back off the face, keeping the sides smooth

Step 4. Twist into a chic French pleat and pin with kirby grips that match to your hair colour

Step 5. Pull a couple of small pieces out at either side and finish with a final spritz of hairspray
