We really can’t keep up with the Little Mix girls and their chameleon like hair shades! Latest to try out a new style is the lovely Jade Thirlwall! Jade debuted her new ombre locks at the Isle of Wight festival where her hair was styled with a dutch braided bang before hitting the town with a much more polished look! Continue Reading

She has been non stop lately, performing at festivals, becoming the face of Material Girl’s new campaign and partying with pal Cara Delevingne but Rita Ora has stepped out in LA looking surprising fresh faced and make up free, sporting some brand new hair extensions. Rits has played with her hair a lot of late...trying out a blue shade before returning to her trademark blonde locks.
Rita Ora’s hair extensions are super long and help tone down the brassiness of her super light blonde shade. We wonder if the change of hairstyle has anything to do with the confirmation that she will be featuring on Iggy Azalea's new album, as we all know she is a big fan of uber long hair!
What do you think of the look on Rita?

The new season of HBO’s hit show True Blood starts this weekend in the US! To say we are a little bit excited for this is an understatement! The stars of the show all attended a premiere for season 6 just a few days ago at the ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome in Hollywood so we had to take a look at the original True Blood girls red carpet hairstyles!
Anna Paquin looked stunning in a black David Koma dress which was figure hugging but stood out from the crowd with an oversized shaped peplum. Her red carpet hair was curled using a large barrel tong and scraped over her shoulder. Anna added a 90’s twist to the style by lifting and shaping her face framing layer of hair and holding this in place with product.
Whilst we were not so keen on Rutina Wesley’s dress for the premiere, we are loving her super sleek locks! Rutina often wears her afro hair braided at the roots with the ends left curly and incorporates this into many of her red carpet hairstyles...very rarely do we see her with straightened hair. Her hair looked thick, glossy and perfectly preened.
Deborah Ann Woll’s hair took a break from her usual vintage inspired red carpet hairstyles and opted for a simple ponytail. Her auburn hair was poker straight and she added some lift and height to the top section of hair. The simple hairstyle complemented her fitted structured dress and she looked stunning.
Are you excited for the next season of True Blood? Who had your favourite red carpet hairstyle?

Rita Ora has confirmed that she will be taking over from Georgia May Jagger and Kelly Osbourne before her as the face of Madonna and her daughter, Lourdes, clothing range Material Girl!
This is great news for the singer who is currently trying to break America! She instagrammed a pic with Madonna confirming the news by saying 'Joining forces with Madonna and Lola!'. The promos for the brand have always had a rocky feel and the hair always looks amazing.
We can’t wait to see Rita Ora’s Material Girl promos as we’re sure the styling and hair will be amazing! What do you think of the brand using Rita Ora?

The Hills star Kristin Cavallari and boyfriend, Chicago Bears Quarterback, Jay Cutler finally tied the knot over the weekend in a private and small ceremony in Nashville. The wedding ceremony was only held for close family and friends and seemed the complete opposite of fellow Hills couple Heidi and Spencer Pratt.
Kristin Cavallari’s wedding hair looked absolutely stunning and very natural. Styled with her usual centre parting, the lengths of her hair was given almost her trademark look of loose almost beach style waves. She pulled her face framing layers back to help secure her veil in place. Her bridesmaids wore a very similar hairstyle which kept the theme very relaxed.
None of her TV show ‘friends’ attended the wedding or the reception party later where Kirsten was seen partying after letting her wedding hairstyle loose. We love the simplicity of her wedding hair against the beautiful lace detailing and ruched tail of her gown.
We really hope there will be some official pics of the wedding as it would be lovely to see some more pics of her hair! Do you prefer a relaxed down wedding hairstyle? Or do you prefer the traditional updo?

Well this is the trend that every girl all over the world has been waiting for...the Low Maintenance look! Yep...thats right, low maintenance, no spending hours on getting your hair perfectly poker straight or making sure every fly away and layer is securely braided, and just in time for summer too!
This trend is perfect, whatever length, cut or style your hair is. The trick to getting this trend just right is to not try too hard...if your hair has a natural kink or wave your sorted, just brush and go! If you have naturally straight hair then add a little salt spray or leave in conditioner to add the messed up texture. Curly girls abandon your usual routine and just brush your hair and add a little taming product but leave your curls to their own devices! Think Alexa Chung, The Olsen twins and Kate Hudson!
This trend also works with up dos! Wow super awesome news! Opt for low slung ponytails but don't pull all your hair through the elastic, choose a top knot but not a neat version...if you have layers leave them poking out and braids should be left really loose.
What do you think of this trend? Is it a look you’re keen to try or do you prefer a more styled hairdo?

The Summer festivals are well and truly underway with both Capital FM’s Summertime ball in Wembley and Parklife in Manchester taking place over the weekend. The performances looked amazing and with glorious sunshine we were eager to take a look at the celebrity hairstyles at the festivals.
First up at the Summertime Ball is the gorgeous Saturdays! Still minus Rochelle thee girls chose beautiful corseted costumes with hints of pink and purple detailing. Their hair was incredible and perfectly styled as always. Choosing a voluminous blow dried look with loads of lift at the crown and big bouncy curls throughout the ends. Great on stage movement and hairography!
Keeping both her on stage and arrival hair bang on trend was Ellie Goulding. The star went for low maintenance locks, keeping her super light blonde locks very natural. There was some shape to her hair, but no definite curl and it wasn’t straight either! This natural look is perfect for festivals as there is no need to worry about taking styling tools!
Now over at Parklife top of the bill was Rita Ora. Rita took a dive into some blue dye just a few weeks ago so it was kind of a shame to see that her blonde hair had returned...we’d have love to see her style up her blue hair! Her hair was Rita’s trademark style...large and defined curls. Her outfit was a little strange, a leather ensemble covered in skulls, with the beaming sunshine it did seem a little more suited to Halloween!
Rocking a very summertime outfit was hip hop artist Iggy Azalea. Her uber long hair was poker straight and styled with a centre parting. She had on a beautiful green and orange patterned cropped top and skater skirt which she later ripped off revealing hot pants in the same design!
With this being just the start of the Summer Festivals we are really looking forward to hairstyle trends making an appearance as well as looking out for new emerging ones! Which Festival hairstyles do you like to wear?

Alexa Chung has given everyone a sneak peek from her new L’Oreal campaign. Alexa, who is becoming the face of the brands Olia hair dye, was seen in a very simply photo which she instagrammed along with a few more behind the scenes shots.
Alexa always keeps her hair and style individual to her but always bang on trend.. so it was a shock to see her ombre long bob had been replaced with a ravishing red shade. Perfect advertising for the hair dye when it looks as good as it does!
She was pictured wearing a 60’s style, powder blue shift dress and her hair had been pinned up into cute milkmaid braids! Her heavy fringe has been pulled forward and longer section of hair left loose to frame her face and give her the boho styling we are used to seeing!
We can’t wait to see the proper ads now! What do you think of Alexa Chung’s new shade?

With Summer and the hottest months just around the corner we thought for this weeks tutorial that we would do a style perfect for keeping your hair off your face. The Dutch Braided Bang is a very feminine and pretty way of keep your bang out of the way, whether it be a side swept or a full on fringe this style is perfect and we can assure you that this will keep you so much cooler, just don't ask us how but it does! It can also be a starting point for a very pretty updo!
Pull all your hair into a loose ponytail leaving your bang loose. With a comb section from your temple on one side around 2” into your hair (if your fringe is quite full you may want to go deeper or you can go less if you want a small braid). You now want to section the front section of hair all the way along your head and finishing behind your ear on the other side. This is the hair we will be braiding!
Now we find it best to secure the rest of your hair away in a ponytail again as this makes the braiding a little easier! Starting at the side we first sectioned off you want to make 3 sections of hair as if you are starting a normal braid.
Now we are going to be doing a Dutch Braid for this style...don’t panic it’s easier than you think! Instead of folding the hair over each other you want to pass them under, this will give the braid a raised look and make more of a feature out of it.
Just like a normal french braid you still need to be picking up hair each time this passes over. Continue the braid right to the end of your head and all hair has been incorporated...you can continue this as a normal braid for a little section and pin this behind your ear or continue to the end of your hair!
That is the Dutch Braided Bang style complete...You can of course loosen up the braid for a more boho feel, turn this into a cute up do or add curls throughout the ends of your hair for a really cute look!
What do you think of the Dutch Braided Bang? Is this a style you will be trying out or is it already one of your favs?

With the annual Cannes Film Festival coming to a close last week we thought it would be rude for us not to compile our favourite red carpet hairstyles from the festival. There are so many red carpets and so many hairstyles for us to choose from so it was really tough!
To start the week Nicole Kidman’s hairstyle at the Great Gatsby’s premier was simply divine. A modern twist on a 1920’s style that was perfect for the event. Nicole’s hair was scraped back and the sides and pinned at the back of the head. The top section of hair was then given lots of body and texture which added a little lift. This was then pulled back and left loose which covered the pinned section from the sides. This was secured with an elastic at the nape of the neck. We love the vintage twist to her red carpet hairstyle.
We are in love with the stunning Sonam Kapoor’s long locks. The Bollywood star wore her hair down with some very subtle curls throughout the ends and vintage inspired shaping through the top sections. Her hair was swept to the one side and along with her floor length ball gown style dress this made her look like a Disney princess! Her chocolate brown natural hair is super glossy and looks super thick and healthy.
Next up is the classical beauty Marion Cotillard. For the screening of Blood Ties Marion chose the traditional French Pleat hairstyle. This is a classic red carpet updo that is often seen but we love the classic look. Marion added loads of lift at the crown for a more up to date twist on the style.
Emma Watson always looks the part but she is known for taking a more relaxed approach to her styling. Emma’s make up was left simple and her hair was worn the same for both appearances at the Bling Ring and Young and Beautiful screenings...in a low down bun. The style is simple, low maintenance and bang on trend.
Cheryl Cole made an unusual appearance at the film festival but we are so pleased she did as we adore her red carpet hairstyle. The loose braided style is such a hot favourite this summer and the style incorporates one of our hot trends...ribbons too! The braided style looks elegant although it has the loose and low maintenance feeling, you almost have to take a double look to see its a braid. It is the perfect summer style!
Who was your favourite red carpet hairstyle? Do you agree with our choices?
