red carpet hairstyles and dress choices over the last couple of weeks
have been the most anticipated and then talked about of the awards
season. With the BAFTA's and Grammy's last weekend and the Brits this
week, there have been many different styles to take inspiration from. We
have all had our favourites here at Headkandy and its been very
interesting to see the red carpet hairstyle trends forming at each
The BAFTA's -
BAFTA's are often a showcase to the many typically British red carpet
styles. The long sequined gowns are gone, instead classic shapes and
cut dresses make an appearance. We love Bonnie Wright’s polka dot tea
dress, although, it’s not the type of dress you would expect to see on the red carpet! Colour blocking her blue dress with pink and orange shoes makes
the look bang on trend. Her auburn locks had been darkened a little with
a hint of the ombre style to the tips.
Cotton also looked stunning at the event. Known for wearing outfits
that can be seen as a little kooky and unusual Fearne choose a long
sleeve, coral maxi dress with large bow sash detail. Her hair was simply
stunning, the 1920's inspired bob almost out-shined her dress. Her
red carpet hairstyle was very vintage inspired and the reference back to the 1920's had us thinking about glorious times of past. Her
long bob was loosely finger waved with some backcombing to the
underneath section of the hair - this helps the hair sit perfectly with the shape
of the haircut.
The Grammy's -
There was a clear trend on the red carpet last Sunday - Vintage! Carrie Underwood always looks amazing at red carpet events and at this event she looked simply stunning. Her Gomez Gracia sequined silver, backless, floor length gown was perfectly teamed with a simple low pony tail. Her hair had been delicately pinned back at the nape of the neck but it was given lots of lift at the roots.
Another star following
in the red carpet style was Katy Perry. She wore a very similar style Ellie Saab dress in a pastel blue shade and her blue bobbed hair was
sleeked back. Katy's style was lifted a little more than Carries, which gave a kind of vintage quiff feel to her hair-do!
Our favourite of the night was Kelly Osbourne. Often criticised at
these type of events, Kelly was styled to perfection. From the Tony Ward silver one shoulder sequined gown to the
lilac hue of her her; she looked like a 50's bombshell! Her hair was
softly waved and pulled into a deep side fringe - emulating the
Hollywood classic style made famous by Marilyn Monroe.
The BRITS -
Brits are always known for having a more eclectic feel to any other
award show and Jessie J is the perfect example of this eclectic style.
Wearing a stunning red see-through floor length gown. The barley there
dress looked amazing with dark hair that was styled very differently
for Jessie. Her fringe had been swept to the side and her hair finger
waved close to her head. This was then pulled back and the ends were
curled and backcombed so there was plenty of lift and movement to the
followed in the big hair trend choosing a style very similar to her
appearance at the Grammy’s. The singers red carpet hairstyle was very
voluminous at the roots with very bouncy curls added to the tips.
We love Adele’s new shade too, very similar to our hair extensions shade Malibu Blonde :)
Our favourite hairstyle from the red caret had to be Pixie Lott. Since Pixie chopped off her long locks, we have been used to seeing her
hair down and straight. Her
style looked very intricate with lots of sectioning and pinning! The
curls added to her side swept fringe gave the style a vintage twist that
looked amazing with her bright red lips and light blonde hair.
