  • Red Carpet Hairstyles for the Emmy Awards

    There certainly was a dominating look to the red carpet hairstyles for the Emmy Awards this year … the elegant updo is back. We've become accustomed to seeing hair being worn down at red carpet events so it was a pleasant surprise to see so many fabulous updos!


    Girl of the moment, Zoe Deschanel, chose a stunning vintage inspired red carpet hairstyle that worked perfectly with her Reem Acra lilac, floor length gown. Her hair was pulled back and given lots of lift at the root, this was pinned in the centre of the head; the lengths of her hair were then rolled at the nape of the neck and pinned up. Such a cute look that was made famous by the Hollywood greats of the 1950s.


    Mad Men actress, Jessica Pare, also took inspiration from the 1950's; her makeup and red carpet hairstyle looked very Grace Kelly. She wore a stunning retro updo with beautiful dark glossy locks and a beautiful white, Grecian Jason Wu gown … her styling ensured she looked every inch a vinatge vixen. We have to say … we are LOVING these vintage inspired red carpet hairstyles for the Emmy Awards, ladies. Kudos!


    Another updo that had taken inspiration from vintage styles was worn by Julianne Hough. Wearing a stunning sea foam Georges Hobeika Couture gown, Julianne added 1920's finger waves to a faux bob. The style looks simply stunning with her newly blonde shade, especially as we are used to seeing Julianne with dark, long locks left down. The faux bob is a great way of trying out a shorter style without the commitment of having your hair cut off and its so easy to do. Try this look out with our easy faux bob hair tutorial.


    Hayden Panettiere looked lovely in a gold-embroidered Marchesa gown with a blue tulle overlay. With such a detailed dress, Hayden's messy high bun worked perfectly as this drew all the attention to stunning back detail of the dress.

    We are loving the mass return of the updo and with many more red carpet events fast approaching, we can’t wait to see more updos springing up on the celebs. Which of the red carpet hairstyles for the Emmy Awards was your fave? Are you backing the updo too? Who do you think always look perfect with an updo?

  • Nicki Minaj's Hair

    She is known for being a colour chameleon and having the most outrageous hairstyles so we were a little surprised to see Nicki Minaj's hair looking a little less dramatic at the launch of her new fragrance.


    Last week, Nicki Minaj’s hair was an array of bright neon shades for her first appearance as a judge on American Idol. Kept into a bob filled with bouncy curls, her hair screamed out for attention, and it attracted just that!

    However, for her fragrance launch, she opted for a more demure look. We’re guessing that some hair extensions were added to Nicki Minaj’s hair to give her that added length and give her a completely different look to what she was seen with the previous week. We do much prefer Miss Minaj with her longer locks we must admit!


    Nicki Minaj’s hair was also just ONE shade for a change, a lovely light blonde! We think this is a nice change from her usual show stopping mix of shades, although we do love seeing what she comes up with next, we haven’t seen her hair so ‘normal’ for quite a while. Nicki Minaj kept her hair sleek and straight for her appearance and we love how glossy and healthy her hair looked. ♥

    Although Nicki Minaj’s hair was kept relatively low-key, her outfit was not. Dressed in a multi coloured floral crop top, a bright pink suited jacket, and blue and white leggings, the star didn’t hold back on attracting attention at her fragrance launch.  Blue wedges and a pink police helmet completed her look for the appearance. We’re pretty sure only Nicki Minaj could get away with this look on a daily basis though.

    We’re pretty impressed by her perfume bottle too; it has a pink wig!! Wowsa! Mirrored on Nicki Minaj’s famous pink ‘do, we think it’s one of a kind for sure. Just like her!

    So what do you guys think of Nicki Minaj’s hair for her fragrance launch?? Loving it or hating it? Let us know what you think in the comments below or give us a tweet or even pop over to Facebook.

  • London Fashion Week Hairstyles

    We were loving some of the London Fashion Week hairstyles last week and we’ve picked a few of our faves to share with you.

    First of all, we have to say that we just LOVED Pixie Lott’s hair at LFW. Her shoulder length blonde locks were styled with a deep side-parting and gorgeous waves and flicks. It looked super, SUPER cute. We were also loving her sheer, knitted mini dress and her cats ears.


    Another of the London Fashion Week hairstyles that caught our eye was worn by Nicola Roberts; the Girls Aloud star debuted her new pink dip-dyed look which had replaced her blonde locks seen earlier at LFW. We do love to see a star playing around with the shade of their hair and we’re fans of the dip-dye hair trend, but we’re not sure we like this look on Nicola Roberts … it certainly makes a statement though!


    Moving on to the runway for our London Fashion Week hairstyles, we noticed that Mulberry were favouring a deep side parting and a sweeping fringe for the SS13 show. We love this style, especially when worn with added root lift, as it has a real 60’s vibe. This style worked just perfectly with the runway collection.


    The London Fashion Week hairstyles for Jena.Theo SS13 were dominated by centre partings and poker straight locks. These looks were super sleek and gorgeously glossy which just screams catwalk. Use your straightening irons for the super straight look and finish with Tigi After Party to control any fly-aways.
    Many of the models wore their hair without a fringe, but we were loving the blunt-cut, bold fringe that some of the Jena.Theo models wore for the runway. Just perfect.


    Which of the London Fashion Week hairstyles caught your eye the most? Do you agree with our choices or do you have some suggestions of your own? Tell us below or on Facebook … we’d love to hear from you.

  • Glee Hairstyles

    There were some stunning Glee hairstyles as the stars of the hit show attended the premiere of Season 4 last week. This was a huge night for the returning and new cast members to make an impression on the enormous number of Glee fans all over the world.


    Lea Michele looked absolutely stunning on the red carpet, choosing a floor length, black, Versace cutaway gown. The cutaway lace panel pulled in her waist and this continued around making a gorgeous backless statement. Her straight across, blunt bang had returned for the premiere; as it's a Rachel Berry trademark we wouldn’t expect to see her without this! The naturally dark shade of Lea Michele's hair had been replaced by the ombre hair trend with dark blonde tones. We’re not sure on this Glee hairstyle on Lea.....whilst we love the large curls we think the shade is just a little too light!


    Making her Glee debut was a very androgynous Kate Hudson. The star was dressed in a white and black edged suit and she looked very different to her usual styling! She even chose to scrape her hair back into a high up messy bun. The hair bun trend has been HUGE in the celeb world this year, and we think this hairstyle looked gorgeous on Kate as we are used to seeing her naturally curly hair left loose!


    Following in Kate’s red carpet footsteps was Heather Morris and her Glee hairstyle. Heather choose a much simpler, more casual look for the red carpet event. She wore a short turquoise dress with a peter pan collar; the scraped back hairstyle she wore looked very girly. Differing from Kate's messy feel, Heather's bun was pulled neat and looked very ballerina-like.


    Jenna Ushkowitz’s hair looked super sleek and glossy at the event. Her naturally long hair had been straightened and it looked as though she had also had a change of shade from the previous series. Adding some very subtle highlights to her locks has given it much more dimension and makes her hair look loads thicker ... we approve!

    Are you excited for the new series? Do you like the Glee hairstyles and the style changes of the original cast members? We can’t wait for the start of the series here in UK........shame it’s not until January!! Share your thoughts with us in the comments or tweet us.

  • Nicki Minaj's Hair for American Idol

    Nicki Minaj’s hair for American Idol has already made a statement … and it’s only the first stage of the auditions. Nicki Minaj has only just been confirmed as a panelist on the US talent show, where she will appear alongside diva Mariah Carey. Both ladies have completely different styles, so it will be pretty interesting to watch them battle it out in the style wars.


    For the first auditions, Nicki Minaj’s hair was worn with loads and LOADS of voluminous curls … her hair was a melting pot of shades with bright yellow, pink, and orange thrown into the mix! Whatever you might say about Nicki Minaj, she certainly knows how to stand out and ensure she gets herself noticed. Kudos to her for that!

    Mariah Carey's Hair was more glam as she wore a centre parting and her blonde locks styled into loose waves. We’re loving the length of Mariah’s hair at the moment and we look forward to seeing the styling throughout the series.
    Mariah Carey matched her hairdo with a black mac worn over a simple black dress … her black peep-toe heels were absolutely gorge!

    To re-create this look, use your curling tongs through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair and gently brush through the curls.


    Nicki’s outfit was somewhat toned down by her standards! The star wore baby blue fitted cropped trousers, a multi-coloured crop top, a white blazer, and turquoise boots with a killer heel! What a contrast to Mariah Carey’s appearance!

    We’re quite intrigued to see Nicki Minaj’s hair for American Idol, as well as her style choices, throughout the series, but we’re looking forward to Mariah’s looks too. What do you guys think? Tell us below or on Facebook.

  • Bouffant Ponytail

    So with many of you going back to school and the Fashion Weeks beginning, we thought we’d come up with a hair tutorial that intertwines both aspects, so say hey to the bouffant ponytail!


    This hairstyle is a perfect combination of Fashion Week hair trends and an easy peasy hairstyle that you can quickly do before school or work for a super chic look! Perfecto! We’re going to be styling the bouffant ponytail low as we love it this way, but you can wear it higher if you like.


    Step One:

    If your hair is a little on the short/thin side be sure to fit your hair extensions before you start this hairstyle to add extra length and thickness. Ensure that your extensions are not fitted higher than the top of your ear as you will need to backcomb the top section of the hair later on!

    Step Two:

    Once you have fitted your hair extensions, you need to backcomb the top section of your own hair to create the bouffant to add that Fashion Week vibe into your hairstyle! Taking your comb/backcombing brush, start at the back of your hair near to the crown. Use your comb to section off the top layer of hair and backcomb the section underneath; once backcombed, spritz with hairspray and leave to dry before brushing it down (be warned, it may look a little wild whilst you are backcombing, but the end result will be super smooth). Backcomb the top section but do this quite lightly as this section will be used to smooth over the backcombed section underneath. Repeat this step on both sides ensuring the top section of hair is backcombed lightly so the overall look of the hairstyle is nice and smooth.

    Step Three:

    Now that your hair is backcombed and the hairspray has set, all that is left to do is to pull it back neatly into a low ponytail. Use your backcombing brush to smooth out any fly-aways whilst you are pulling it back and secure in place with a thin hair band.

    Step Four:

    You then need to take a small strand from the underneath of your bouffant ponytail and wrap it around the base of your ponytail so the hair band is hidden. Secure this piece of hair again underneath the base of the ponytail with a bobby pin.

    Step Five:

    This next step is optional (and if you have time before school hehe) but we just LOVE adding some soft curls throughout the ponytail to thicken it up even more and add extra texture! Be sure to be SUPER careful when doing this as you don’t want to mess up your bouffant so curling with curling tongs may be easier as it won’t pull on your hair as much. :) Brush through the curls to soften them for a boho chic look.

    Finally, to finish off, gently pull a few pieces of hair down to frame your face and voila! You’re ready to go...♥

    So what do you think of this bouffant ponytail hairstyle ladies? We think it’s perfect for school, date nights, or a catch up with your girl friends! Let us know your thoughts on Twitter and if you re-create this hairdo we’d LOVE to see some piccies!!

  • Celebrity Hairstyles at New York Fashion Week

    We've been LOVING some of the celebrity hairstyles at New York Fashion Week almost as much as the runway shows!! Here’s the lowdown on our faves.

    Victoria Beckham’s hair has been looking gorgeous for her appearances as she’s launched her collection at New York Fashion Week. Her hair has been worn long with an on-trend centre parting and loose waves. We are really liking her hair this length. ♥


    Another of the celebrity hairstyles at New York Fashion Week that caught our eye was worn by style queen Tyra Banks. She wore her bobbed hair in a voluminous style with curls that were full of body and lots of root lift. Wow, her hair was big! We were loving the deep side parting and the sweeping side fringe. It's great to see the big hair trend still going strong!

    We ADORED Tamara Ecclestone’s BIG hair at NYFW. Her hair was very Kate Middleton and we just loved the loose curls and the gorgeous volume. She also looked stunning in her tight-fitting, high-waist burgundy skirt which she teamed with a snake print top.


    Kelly Osbourne has been sporting a variety of celebrity hairstyles at New York Fashion Week; Kelly is still sporting the granny chic hair trend so her lilac locks were styled into an updo with lots of root lift and a deep side parting; she teamed this look with a bright orange jumpsuit and jacket.
    Kelly Osbourne’s hair was also styled into a voluminous half-up half-down style for Fashion Week. Her fringe was styled back over the bouffant-like section on the top of her hair. We are loving this look on Kelly.
    Less successful was Kelly’s crazy twisted updo which she teamed with a neon outfit. We admire her for trying a style that makes her stand out from the crowd, but we’re really not keen on this look on the star. Sorry Kelly, it’s a thumbs down from us.


    And last, but by no means least, another of our fave celebrity hairstyles at New York Fashion Week was worn by the lovely Whitney Port. Whitney, who was also showcasing her own collection at Fashion Week, looked absolutely stunning as she attended the BCBG Max Azria show last week. Whitney Port’s hair was styled with a centre parting and her blonde locks were worn long and loose. She wore a simple long navy silk skirt with a black crop top and she looked fantastic. This lady can do no wrong!!


    We’ve loved keeping an eye on the runway and the celebrity hairstyles at New York Fashion Week and we’re super excited for London Fashion Week too.

  • Red Carpet Hairstyles

    The MTV music awards are known for not being a normal run of the mill award show, with many outrageous style choices and red carpet hairstyles on show! Surprisingly, this year there were many more elegant and traditional red carpet styles with the outrageous and crazy left to just Nicki Minaj!

    Red Carpet Hairstyles Demi Lovato

    One of our favourite looks of the night was worn by Demi Lovato! She kept her red carpet look very young by teaming a sequined skater style dress with a studded leather jacket! Her hair was tousled with a slight wave and gave a rocker feel to the overall look. Demi was later presenting an award and this of course meant a change from the red carpet look she had been previously seen in. Demi Lovato’s hair had been given more of a neat wave and her hair was swept to the side giving a much more demure look than on the red carpet. We can’t wait to see the styles Demi will be wearing as X factor USA prepares to launch!

    Red Carpety Hairstyles Rita Ora Hair

    Rita Ora made an appearance at the awards show to present the award for Best Male Video, which she presented with Demi! Rita’s red carpet look was a little different; she chose an Emilio Pucci body jewelled suit. Known for her urban styling, the look was very fitting for her. When Rita took to the stage to present the award to Chris Brown she had changed into a very elegant Stéphane Rolland couture gown. The fringed shoulders and the belt detailing maintained her edgy feel. Her super blonde hair had been styled into vintage inspired waves which looked fantastic as one of the MTV music awards red carpet hairstyles.

    Red Carpet Hairstyles Rita Ora's Hair

    Our fave of the red carpet hairstyles was worn by Katy Perry. She also looked incredible in her outfit ... she wore an Elie Saab Couture floor length gown that had stunning red and turquoise flower detailing. LOVE it! Katy, who has returned to her most famous black locks, also styled her hair with vintage inspiration. To create the look of Katy Perry's hair you will need to use a large barrelled tong! Once you have fully curled your hair use a soft brush and gently brush out the curls. Add a little serum to your fingers and run this through the front of your hair to create the shape.

    Red Carpet Hairstyles Katy Perry's Hair

    Taylor Swift took a different approach to red carpet glamour … she instead opted for a classy J Mendel off-white trouser suit amongst a sea of floor length gowns. She also chose to wear her long hair and bangs super straight. We are so used to seeing Taylor Swift’s hair worn wavy, so we’re not sure this is our favourite look on her but it worked perfectly with her outfit as one of the night’s red carpet hairstyles.

  • Celebrity Hairstyles at the Toronto Film Festival

    We’ve been LOVING some of the celebrity hairstyles at the Toronto Film Festival this month; there have been some gorgeous updo’s and downdo’s from the lovely ladies on the red carpet … here are a few of our faves.

    Amy Adam’s hair looked incredible for the premiere of ‘The Master’ at the Toronto Film Festival last weekend. The actress wore a black Marchesa frock and her hair was styled into an elegant bun. Her bun was styled low with a centre parting and it was worn sleek … we love this look on her.



    Selena Gomez had some gorgeous celebrity hairstyles at the Toronto Film Festival too; we loved her hair for the ‘Hotel Transylvania’ premiere. Selena Gomez’s hair was worn shoulder length with an off-centre parting and on-trend, voluminous curls. She teamed her style with a stunning gown from Alberta Ferretti’s Fall 2012 collection. We approve!
    Selena wore her hair similarly for the photocall of ‘Spring Breakers’ on Friday afternoon, but completed this look with a sexy leopard print fitted frock from Dolce & Gabbana. If you fancy creating this red carpet look then pop in your 12-14” hair extensions to add volume for this style.
    The actress opted for an updo for the premiere of ‘Spring Breakers’ at the Toronto Film Festival; her hair was waved and pulled back into a low style at the nape of her neck with a strand of waved hair left loose to frame her face. So pretty.


    Many of the celebrity hairstyles at the Toronto Film Festival this year were elegant updo’s as we spotted Emily Blunt with a sleek updo and Naomi Watts’ hair was slicked back into a low side bun too. These are perfect looks for the red carpet and looked gorgeous on the ladies.



    Our fave look from the Toronto Film Festival was worn by the lovely Keira Knightley; her hair was also styled into an updo, but she had a gorgeous side sweeping fringe which really finished her look beautifully. We’re also a little in love with the Elie Saab Couture gown she wore. ♥

  • Little Mix Hairstyles for Fiasco

    We are a little in LOVE with the 60’s styling of the Little Mix Hairstyles for Fiasco mag … the girls look oh-so-gorgeous and the black and white images are super, super chic!


    The girls have moved away from their usual vibrant styling for this shoot for the fashion mag, and although we ADORE their usual look, we are big fans of this 60’s style which has been inspired by sixties icons The Supremes and The Shangri-las.

    Little-Mix-Hairstyles-for-Fiasco-1There’s loads of volume going on for the Little Mix hairstyles for Fiasco and we couldn’t be happy; we love a voluminous hairstyle! Backcomb the roots of your own hair for added oomph like the girls have in this shoot.


    All of the girls look absolutely stunning for the shoot, but we have to say, our fave of the Little Mix hairstyles for Fiasco has to be worn by Jade; the half-up half-down bouffant looks incredible. Kudos for this look!


    So what do you think of these Little Mix hairstyles for Fiasco? Who is wearing your fave look? Leave a comment below or tweet us.
