Hollywood Film Awards Style Round-Up
With guests including Johnny Deep, Reese Witherspoon and Will Smith, the 19th Annual Hollywood Film Awards were unsurprisingly a very glamorous affair. Take a look at our pick of the best looks from the evening…
Reese Witherspoon kept it simple with a classic white dress and super sleek, poker straight locks. We love her choice of an on-trend centre parting. To get her smooth finish, it’s best to begin the straightening process on damp hair. Work a heat-activated product like TIGI Bed Head Straighten Out through mid-lengths and ends and blow dry smooth. As you apply heat, the formula gets to work, helping you to keep straight, frizz-free hair for up to 48 hours! Ad extra smoothness and shine and run a flat iron (you can’t beat the new ghd Platinum) through 3-4 inch sections of hair. Complete your look with a mist of gloss enhancing hairspray like Sassoon Professional Spray Shine.
We’re loving Carey Mulligan’s rich chocolate shade which complements her skin tone beautifully. Her loose curls add effortless elegance to her red carpet style. The ghd Curve Soft Curl Tong is ideal for recreating this look. Find out how to get the best results in our how-to video below.
Amber Heard was our style winner of the night. Her glittering outfit, minimalist makeup and stunning updo were utter perfection! Volume is the key to nailing this look. For a similar style, work a mattifying product like EIMI Dry Me dry shampoo directly into the roots. Next lightly backcombing the hair on the top of your head before smoothing back and away from the face and gather the remaining hair in a loose bun or knot at the nape of the neck. Seal your style with a spritz of firm hold hairspray like Designline Finishing Spray Freeze Spritz.
