It appears that Love Island’s Maura Higgins has gone au naturel for lockdown and has ditched her hair extensions, as the star took to Instagram this week to show off a significantly shorter hairstyle in a series of makeup-free snaps.

“Longest I’ve been without my hair extensions,” Maura wrote on her Instagram stories.

Much like the rest of the nation, the Irish star hasn’t been able to get to the hairdressers for a while, so has had to embrace a much shorter style and her natural hair texture.

Revealing her curls to the camera, Maura asked fans “curly or straight,” before returning to her stories sporting a sleek, straight style.

The former Islander also showed off her makeup-free skin, and in true Maura-fashion, the star jokes, “genuinely look about fifteen with no make-up on.”

We’re unsure exactly how long Maura has been without her extensions, but on her Instagram account the star appears to have been regularly wearing her hair in updos since the end of December – just after her trip to Dubai with boyfriend Chris Taylor.

Maura usually sports waist-length extensions, often styled in mermaid-esque waves, but in recent weeks the star has instead often opted for a 90s-style updo, held in place with a claw clip.

Just the other week she uploaded a snap from a lockdown walk, wrapped up in a cosy teddy coat and with her hair clipped up, leaving a few strands falling loose at the front.

Maura’s followers loved her winter look, with one commenting “outfit, hair, face,” with heart-eye emojis.

The star paired her cool-girl hairstyle with natural glam make-up and a nude pink lipstick.

This trendy hairstyle is favoured by celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber and Bella Hadid and is a great alternative to using bobbles, as a clip like this Urban Outfitters Callie Claw Clip, £10 here, doesn’t pull on the hair.

Lockdown is the perfect opportunity to give your hair a rest and avoid heat-styling, and we think Maura has been doing just that.

We don’t know about you but Maura is giving us serious hair inspo – at least until we can get a hair appointment.
