YouTube star Saffron Barker is proving to be one of the biggest hits of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing. Paired with AJ Pritchard, the 19-year-old has been receiving great scores over the past few weeks and we have a hunch that’s only going to continue. For many, prior to the show, they’ll know Saffron from her YouTube channel that boasts 2.21 million followers. Covering everything from fitness to fashion, it’s her beauty videos that often prove the most popular. Why? Well, she shows off her amazing hairstyles and they’re always so easy to recreate. From bobs to plaits, straight styles to curls, here are Saffron’s best hair moments to date. Is there any style she doesn’t suit?!

We love Saffron Barker's beach curls

One of our favourite looks on Saffron, she wears her hair curly in all sorts of styles. To achieve the look, she recommends using a thicker tong when curling your hair so that you have a more beachy look rather than tight curls. She also advises splitting your hair into sections for ease.

Although she’s famed for her blonde hair, Saffron’s natural hair colour is actually brunette. Doesn’t she look gorgeous with it?

We’re obsessed with top knots. Wear yours neat or make like Saffron and pull out the hair for a looser style.

Saffron has previously revealed that she wears Easilock extensions, a brand that Cheryl is an ambassador of. She has been known to have them professionally put in but she has also used clip-in extensions too. One of her favourite looks is a voluminous high ponytail so they’re perfect for that.

She may often opt for the highest ponytail going but she also loves a low-slung one too. We’re obsessed with this style on her.
