Victoria Beckham is well-known for her chiseled cheekbones and Posh pout, and often shares her fashion and beauty tips and tricks with fans.

And the star's hairdresser Jason Collier - who has also styled the likes of Eva Longoria and Sienna Miller - has now revealed that the pair have a nifty trick for making sure Victoria's bone structure looks even more incredible.

He told HELLO!: "It's what we call a kind of 'hair contouring'. What I would do to highlight the cheekbones, is anything from the back of the ear we always blow-dry a little bit flatter and at a angle - so it slims down the face but then kind of highlights the cheeks a little bit."

"The front section is blowdried forward and flatter - you get that slimmer look to the face," he added. 

"You then add the curl from the end of the cheekbones - so you get the cheekbone highlight, then lift off the cheekbone to open it up with the shape of the lips so you then get that fuller lip feeling. It's what I call a 'bounce'!"

Jason, who is also an ambassador for natural haircare line SheaMoisture, revealed his go-to tool for Victoria's soft, natural curls is a classic tong.

"What we used to do is we'd create what I call an S-bend shape," he said. "You kind of create a waterfall around the tong rather than all the way round… you get that gentle bend."

The celeb-approved hairdresser even hinted at another of his famous clients, too, revealing that he works with a male client within the royal family!

"So actually, the Gel Soufflé, which is one of my favourite [products]… I can't actually say the name - but I can say the family, which is a member of the royal family," he said. "They're in love with this particular product because it just controls their curls. They're a natural curly guy, I can say, and he loves it.

"Because everybody's wearing their hair back and doing less styling, it's a really good time to treat your hair," he said.

"What I love is the Leave-in Coconut Treatment. If you can't be bothered washing and blow-drying your hair and you just want to put it back in a bun - spray a load of this on, get it nice and smooth and treat your hair while it's up in a bun.

"Use this time to get the vitamins and moisture back into it, before we get back to heat styling again."
