Leona Lewis goes for an up-do at the music event


Leona Lewis performed a stunning homecoming set on the main stage at Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend yesterday.

Leona wore a boldly-patterned chiffon floral kimono top for her appearance over a black crop top and trousers.

The X Factor 2006 winner complemented her look with a simple slash of bold pink lipstick and a sophisticated topknot.

Get Leona’s stunning bun at home by following these 3 easy steps:

1. Turn your head upside down, then brush all of your hair to the top of your head, securing it in place with a band

2. Flip your head up and backcomb the loose hair to give it texture and body

3. Pull the teased hair into a ponytail and twist it around the band to form a bun. Secure with pins and a spritz of hairspray.
