Love Island star Maura Higgins channelled her inner Lara Croft this week when she took to Instagram to unveil her latest collaboration with footwear brand Ego. But while the shoes may have been the purpose of the shoot, it’s her beauty look we’re marvelling at.

The star is seen sporting a waist-length braided hairstyle similar to Angelina Jolie ’s alter-ego Lara Croft. She’s also emulating the Tomb Raider heroine with statement long fringe pieces, left untucked from the updo.

Maura, 30, shared a reel of sultry snaps from the desert-themed photoshoot, which took place in Dubai. Fans seemed to love the content, with the post quickly amassing over 237K likes.

In the post shared with her 3.1 million followers, Maura shows off a number of striking looks – but her fans couldn’t help but dish out praise on her Lara look.

After Maura posted the stunning snaps, Carl shared a behind-the-scenes clip of his own. In the short video, he can be seen putting the finishing touches to the Love Islander’s braid.

“Dessert Plait @maurahiggins …. who wants to see my REEL of this shoot,” he writes in the caption.

Carl’s followers quickly pointed out how much product he used, with one person writing: “That is a lot of spray.”

“How much hairspray do you need?” another asks.

“Haha it’s a light hairspray and I don’t like 1 hair out of place,” he responded.

Carl then shared further behind-the-scenes content, including a gorgeous image showing Maura wearing her hair down in a sleek style.
