We give the singer a hot new look for Christmas

Jamie Stevens – ambassador for Matrix – transforms The X Factor‘s Jade Ellis with a party-perfect playful plait.

Here’s how to get the look:

Give dry hair volume by applying a texture cream. Secure hair in a side pony using a hairband, leaving the top section out.

Add a ponytail extension. Braid two plaits, secure and pull out a little to add texture.

Wrap end of leftover section around your index fingers, roll towards head and secure. Spritz with hairspray.
