May was a busy month on the red carpet; the stars were
out in their numbers and we were in our element with all the red carpet hair to
watch out for! Here are our favourite celebrity hair styles from last month’s
Cannes Film Festival 2011
The celebs were out in force for the Cannes Film Festival
this year and there were so many gorgeous styles to choose from over the 12
days and nights that the festival ran, but we think these ladies really shone
with their red carpet hair.
Salma Hayek looked stunning in her floor-length gown with
silver sequins and her hairdo was the perfect choice for a glamorous event.
Salma Hayek’s hair was swept to one side with large, natural-looking curls and
waves. You can style your own hair and then gently loosen the curls with your
fingers to re-create this effortless glamour!
Fan Bing Bing wowed onlookers time and time again with
her stunning dresses and her red carpet hair was equally as glamorous on each
occasion. Her hair always looked
flawless, either worn in an elegant updo or worn down and naturally straight.
Gwen Stefani’s hair was fabulous for each of her appearances
on the red carpet during Cannes! She teamed her white and black Armani Privé
dress with a rock-chick updo for a perfectly chic look! Gwen was also spotted
in a stunning floor-length black sequined dress teamed with gold accessories;
her hair was left down, but slicked back with extra volume at the roots for an
edgy twist on the glamorous style … she looked every inch a superstar!
Gwen Stefani also wore her platinum blonde locks in voluminous curls with a
vintage twist on the opposite side to her parting for another red carpet
appearance. She was bang on trend with her big hair … We LOVED it!
Rachel McAdams also embraced the big hair trend for some
of her red carpet hairstyles… though her hair wasn’t nearly as big as Gwen’s!!
She was spotted with her hair worn some up and some down for one event and with
her hair worn naturally straight on another occasion … both hairstyles had a
little more volume and lift and looked gorgeous!
Rachel McAdams also made an appearance in a stunning red and see-through dress
with elegant rose patterns; her hair was styled in big and bouncy curls with a
vintage flick to her side-fringe … she looked truly amazing!!
2011 Billboard Music Awards
There were some lovely hair styles for the 2011 Billboard
Music Awards, but we think Beyonce, Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift really stood
out from the crowd!
Selena Gomez looked gorgeous on the red carpet for the
2011 Billboard Music Awards. She wore a sassy black dress with cut away
sections at the waist and a thigh-high split. Selena Gomez’s hair was equally
stunning; she wore her slightly ombre locks simple and poker straight … leaving
her hair looking luxuriously thick and healthy!
Taylor Swift stepped out onto the red carpet wearing a
glamorous floor length gold, sequined gown. Taylor Swift’s hair was elegantly
swept to one side in an Old Hollywood style hairdo that suited her dress
perfectly. Create a low side-parting and add vintage curls to your hair and
your HeadKandy hair extensions with velcro or hot rollers to recreate Taylor
Swift’s red carpet hair.
Beyonce put on a show-stopping performance at the
Billboard Music Awards and showed-off her super toned body in a revealing silver
mesh dress. She wore a stunning figure-hugging black dress for the red carpet
and wore her voluminous locks in natural, looking waves… gorgeous!!
The TV BAFTA's
There were some gorgeous styles on the red carpet for the
2011 TV BAFTA’s last month, but the girls from The Only Way Is Essex really
stood out with their glamorous frocks and hairdos!!
Amy Childs stepped onto the red carpet in a very
Princess-like gold sequined dress with a HUGE skirt!! Her fiery red hair was
styled in large curls and suited the overall look well. Her style for the BAFTA’s
was a tad OTT, but she certainly made a statement!
Sam Faiers opted for a far more low-key look! She wore a
simple shimmery low-cut white dress with black accessories and her hair was
left naturally wavy. She looked super glam for the red carpet!
Lydia Bright and Lauren Goodger both appeared in silver
floor-length frocks. Lydia teamed her dress with a gorgeous updo and Lauren
wore her hair with extra volume on top and with the lengths of her hair pulled
over one shoulder and styled in large curls.
However, Kara Tointen was our favourite pick from the
2011 TV BAFTA’s; she wore a dusky pink evening dress with elegant embellishment
around the neck and shoulder area. Kara Tointen’s hair was equally as elegant;
it was styled in a beautiful curly updo. She looked stunning!!
May really was full of gorgeous dresses and red carpet
glamour, but we think Gwen Stefani rocked her look more than everyone else! Her
unique style really shone at Cannes; she appeared in stunning dresses and Gwen
Stefani’s hair was bang on trend with each of her appearances on the red carpet!!
