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
