Helen Flanagan’s baby daughter Matilda has been playing with her mum’s gorgeous long locks

Helen Flanagan might be a busy mum these days but she’s still making time for a bit of pampering too.

The 25-year-old star, who welcomed her daughter Matilda with footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair in June, headed out to get her hair done this week and emerged with a stunning new do – yummy mummy alert!

Helen opted for a gorgeous new shade of brunette and had long tousled extensions applied to give her tresses a bit of extra length and body.

The mum-of-one was clearly thrilled with the results from her visit to the Elysium Salon and posed for a glowing selfie on Instagram.

‘Love love my new hair thankyou so much Stacey @elysium_hairandbeauty @easilockshair ❤️ Can’t stop flicking my hair lol!’ Helen captioned the picture.

Helen took Matilda with her for her outing and it seems that the little one very much approves of her mum’s new ‘do.

‘Thankyou for making me feel glam!Matilda keeps playing with it #Chestnut xxx,’ Helen posted. Too cute!

The salon revealed on their Instagram page that they’d ensured Matilda was catered for during Helen’s appointment, writing alongside a picture of the room: ‘Today we’ve set the extensions suite up as a play area, getting loads of baby cuddles inbetween hair #multitasking #inline #babysatethecutest ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️’

Helen’s fans were impressed with her chic new style, with one commenting: ‘Looks beautiful’

Another sweetly wrote: ‘Being a mum suits you you look fab and your hairs lovely’

Maybe the actress’s trip to the salon was part of a belated birthday present as she turned 25 last Friday.

Helen revealed over the weekend that she spent her special day with Matilda, though she was also treated to a glam makeover.

‘Thankyou @soniaxfyza for my birthday make up yesterday,’ the former Coronation Street star captioned a photo of her immaculate make-up.

‘had such a lovely day with my perfect princess ❤️ #25 ️xxx’

One thing’s for certain – Helen Flanagan is one glam mumma!
