The Saturdays star's little girl is giving us serious hair envy with her cute fishtail braid

Pregnant Una Foden might be approaching her due date but she’s still keeping busy at home with everyday mum duties.

The Saturdays singer – who is expecting her second child with rugby player hubby Ben – has been practising her hair styling skills on two-year-old daughter Aoife Belle, and we’re very impressed by her efforts.

Una, 33, braided the toddler’s long tresses over the weekend and shared some adorable pictures on Instagram.

‘Practicing doing a #fishtail braid on Aoife Belle,’ the expectant star captioned the photos.

Aw! But it turns out that Aoife has a hair problem we’d actually rather like – her locks are TOO smooth and glossy, meaning it’s difficult for doting mum Una to make it hold a style.

‘Her hair is so silky it makes it hard!’ the singer explained. We think you’ve done a pretty good job, Una!

Aoife‘s simple long plait looks angelic so we’re not surprised that Una is hesitant to use any styling aids on her daughter’s soft mane.

‘She’s only 2 so don’t want to use product, 😍,’ the singer told her followers.

We think Aoife just might be our new hair icon and we’re not the only ones. Una‘s Instagram fans were left awestruck by the little one’s amazing tresses.

‘She’s got perfect hair so jealous,’ one admirer wrote, whilst another gasped: ‘Only 2!!wow never let her do anything with her hair!!’

Bless! As well as acting as Aoife‘s stylist, pregnant Una has also been preparing for the imminent arrival of her new addition.

The red-haired star is due to welcome her baby boy in February and recently shared a picture of a pushchair bar she’d received reading ‘mini Saturday’. Aww!

‘This is so cute to go with my stylish new pushchair thank you @myjoolz #minisaturday,’ Una posted.

With Una due to give birth soon and bandmate Frankie Bridge expecting her second baby later this year, there’ll soon be enough mini Saturdays to start a band of their own!
