Nicole Scherzinger Has Found The Best Summer Hairstyle

Former X Factor judge and Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger is hereby the queen of summer hair.

The 35-year-old was spotted out and about in London on Wednesday looking every inch the beach babe with her tresses worn in two lose braids.

We were convinced fishtail plaits were a thing of the past, but if Scherzy is anything to go by then this hair trend is here to stay.

The songstress - and face of those slightly questionable Muller Corner telly adverts - was papped in a high neck, skin-tight white bodycon while posing for photos with friends outside Buckingham Palace and made a good case for wearing your hair half up half down this season.

She topped off her look with more silver jewellery than you can shake a stick at, a statement ear cuff and one massive silver hoop earring. It's fair to say she'd probably bleep going through a security check at the airport.

Nicole's whole getup was certainly eye-catching, but we're more about her hair!

While most of La La Land have chopped off their long locks, there are still a few celebs who are rocking below-the-shoulder styles.

From super sleek, straight styles to bouncy curls, there are plenty of hairdos to take inspo from. And, like Scherzy has proven, even when you feel like your long locks are bringing you down a braid, a bun or a vintage-inspired updo are the key to getting your hair up out from under your grill.
