I love award shows. Wait, strike that. I love the Red Carpet that leads to the award shows (the shows themselves can be a little boring sometimes). I love the glamour, the jewels and the gowns. I love the fashion do’s and I love to cringe at the fashion don’ts. But most of all, I love to see the hair trends that show up on the carpet. From elegant up do’s to trendy beach waves, I am glued to my television watching these screen sirens glide from photo op to interviewer. I also love to transform these looks into real life for my clients. Here are some ways that you can wear Red Carpet looks for everyday:
1) The Ariana Grande – This popular singer is known as much for her voice as for her signature slicked back ponytail. Not blessed with waist-length thick locks? Try using hair extensions because a skimpy pony just won’t achieve the same look. If you’re afraid of the cost and commitment of extensions that are semi-permanent, there are a variety of clip in versions that are more economical and temporary.
2) Selena Gomez’s Lush Locks – And speaking of hair extensions…. Don’t we all wish we had the abundance of gorgeous hair that Selena Gomez had at the Grammys? Well, she probably wasn’t born with it either. Today’s hair extensions blend in seamlessly with what God gave you and can be colored and cut to be virtually undetectable.
3) Taylor Swift’s Blunt Bob – No one got more attention on the Red Carpet than Taylor Swift (you either loved or hated her dress). But her new blunt cut was really the star of the night. Gone were her signature waves and springy curls and in came a more mature, sleek version of the young starlet. Afraid of taking the plunge and cutting off inches of your hair? Try a wig! It’s a low maintenance option without the months and months of growing your hair back out if you change your mind.
4) Meghan Trainor: Best New Artist (or Hair Color?) – Bye bye blonde, hello auburn! This hot shade of warm red and medium brown is sure to pop up all over the place. It warms up those with cooler skin tones and is more sophisticated and enticing than the blonde ombre of months past.
Now here’s where Red Carpet meets real life: find a reputable stylist that can adjust these looks to suit you. From the right shade of auburn to knowing what length of bob would flatter your face best, a talented hair stylist can help you to be the best version of you.
