Red Carpet Hair | Brits vs Grammys

With it being the Grammys, BAFTAs and Brit Awards recently we thought we’d talk about our favourite red carpet looks from all three and give you some pointers on how you can achieve red carpet-ready hair yourself!

In our eyes, the true stars of the Brit Awards 2016 were Adele, who recently cut her hair into a mid-length bob (a midi or lob, we did a blog post on this a while back!) and livened up her colour with some balyage, a soft highlight technique which we’re doing a lot of at the moment. She showed this look to perfection with a pop lip and strayed from her usual all-black attire to a stunning red gown. If you’d like to book in for a consultation to give your hair that extra va va voom then we’d love to have a chat with you.

The other was Perrie Edwards from Little Mix. Her natural, sun kissed colour is on point and is set off perfectly by the way it’s been styled. This can be recreated at home using sea salt spray (£14.75) and using Label.M Titanium Pro Iron (£74.99) to give that ‘beach wave’. Finish with Soufflé (£13.25) and voila!

Our favourite from the Grammys was Bella Hadid with her centre part, slicked back. This perfectly complemented her glossy, dark chocolate colour. This was closely followed by Carrie Underwood, who also had her hair brought back, but in a slightly more relaxed way.

The BAFTAs was a different night altogether for hair. From Laura Whitmore with her glam up-do to Kate Winslet’s wonderfully icy blonde, the stars went all out. The guys went for more slick-back styles from a bygone era (Leo & Sacha Baron-Cohen) which we loved. There were plenty of gorgeous styles to choose from with the ladies but the one who just pipped it for us…? Isla Fisher, take a bow. Her super shiny, auburn hair suited that vintage glamour finger wave down to a tee. We’ve featured a few different vintage styles on our Instagram page, go take a look!  Instagram.com/brandonmayhair

Our Third Birthday

We thought we’d give you a little update, with it being our third birthday it seemed like a good time!

Sophia left in December to move to Newcastle, and we were sorry to see her go, as I’m sure you guys were too. She’s all settled in a salon up there now and we’re currently in the process of finding a new member of the team to join us we will keep you posted when we do.

Lydia has just started her NVQ level 3, so will be continuing to do models, in salon, as part of her training. You can contact us via phone on the normal number to book in for that.

Sinead is doing so well here doing her Bio Sculpture gel nails and, for those of you which haven’t tried her nail prowess, we suggest you get booked in as she’s getting busy!

We’d just like to take this opportunity to thank you all for letting us get creative with your hair and for all making it such a pleasure for us to come to work every day. We’re very lucky; cheers guys!

Love, the Brandon May team xx
