Ralph Lauren’s Wimbledon Party 2015
With the nation’s favourite tennis tournament just around the corner, it’ll soon be time to serve up those strawberries and cream and pray the rain holds off!
Come the 29th June, all eyes will be on the courts, but before that we had the Ralph Lauren & Vogue Wimbledon party to enjoy, a glamorous reception held at Kensington Palace’s Orangery on Monday night.
A host of A List tennis enthusiasts were in attendance, all sporting this season’s key hair trends. For us, Jessica Chastain, Joanne Froggatt and Laura Bailey stole the show with their perfectly on-trend SS15 styles.
Jessica Chastain was the epitome of elegance with her luscious curls. The super-sleek roots contrasted with the softly curled ends to give this classic style a modern twist. To get the look, prep damp locks with a blow dry gel such as Moroccanoil Styling Gel and blow dry smooth, avoiding lift at the roots. Mist over a heat protector like DESIGNLINE Hot Stop Style Primer before using a large barrel tong (our favourite is the ghd Curve Soft Curl Tong) to loosely curl 3-4 inch sections of hair. Once your curls have cooled, soften them by brushing through with a paddle brush. Finish with a spritz of shine spray like Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Shine Spray and tuck the front sections behind your ears.
Joanne Froggatt opted for the effortless summer staple, beachy waves. She also brought the style bang up to date by leaving a few inches at the end straight. Texture is the secret to achieving this style so begin by working a texturiser through towel-dried lengths and ends like DESIGNLINE Texture Cream Casual Styler and blasting dry. Follow with your heat protect spray then take 3 inch sections of hair and wrap them around the ghd Curve Creative Curl Wand, alternating the direction of each curl for a natural finish. Again, brush through when cool and finish with a mist of hold spray like Sebastian Shaper Zero Gravity.
Laura Bailey made schoolgirl pigtails chic, teaming them with sophisticated sunglasses and a dash of red lipstick. Start by setting your hair in a centre parting before French plaiting each, working back right from the hairline, leaving about 2-3 inches free at the ends. Let a few wisps fall loose around the crown for a softer finish and secure with a firm hold spray like Redken Pure Force.
