Katie Piper is smashing it on Strictly Come Dancing and we're loving seeing her light up the floor with her moves. The mother-of-two is looking better than ever right now - aside from the plethora of sequins, her makeup is looking particularly flawless and her hair is super thick, shiny and princess-like. We caught up with Jay Birmingham, the celebrity hair stylist who looks after Katie's luscious mane, as well as Amanda Holden's and Kelly Brook's. He explained: "I use Beauty Works fusion bond extensions on Katie. For a natural look, I mix a selection of blonde shades - some ashy, some warm tones."

Katie's hair always looks incredible

Jay added: "Kate has the bonds as her hair is super thick already, so we add a bit of length to give her a chance to have fun with different looks for Strictly." If bonded extensions aren't your bag, the brand also sells clip-in extensions that can be applied directly to the head. These are particularly useful if you want to add temporary thickness or length for a special occasion.

Speaking to Closer Magazine about her daily hair care routine, the author said: "I don't like to wash my hair too often as it dries it out, so I use the Batiste dry shampoo on the roots in between washes. I also try not to style my hair with tongs or straighteners every day. Instead, I leave it to every other day to protect it from breakage."

The TV star also revealed that she often has days when she doesn't bother with makeup and isn't as glam as you may expect: "I often get my daughter ready and put her into a nice outfit and then her nappy leaks or she throws up on my outfit. So at the moment, I would say I leave the house without any makeup almost every day."
