A TikToker's Princess Diana hair how-to has gone viral on the video-based social platform this month and viewers can't get over how much the influencer looks like her muse. The TikToker in question is called Rose and goes by the handle @70srose on TikTok and @rosenoraanna on Instagram. In the eye-catching video Rose uses hair styling clips and a slim hot brush to style her short layered look into the iconic hairstyle that Princess Diana sported in the late 70s and early 80s.

Rose, whose hair is blonde and peppered with caramel tones just like Princess Diana's much-copied look, gets her much-photographed hairstyle down to a tee. She's got the flicks, she's got the volume, she's got that lash-skimming fringe, and no one can deny that she looks remarkably like her muse too.

It seems that Rose only opted for a shorter haircut very recently too. Prior to 17 April this year Rose had been sporting a longer 70s look reminiscent of the likes of 70s icon Farrah Fawcett and her new cut brings her to that crucial 70s/80s crossover era. Obsessed with this hair look and keen to get styling your own 70s/80s do at home? You're going to be needing a hot brush...
