The Best of the BAFTAs 2015

As the most distinguished evening in the British film calendar, the BAFTAs are always an glamorous occasion as the biggest stars of the moment pull out all the stops and this year’s awards were no different. The style of the night seemed to be sleek side partings with Keira Knightley, Julianne Moore and Amy Adams all opting for the sophisticated look. We asked out UK Creative Director, Kieron Fowles, to share his top looks of the night and a few expert tips on getting red carpet hair at home…

“My stand out looks of the night were Reese Witherspoon and Rosamund Pike. Both stars opted for natural loose waves and an elegant side parting. It’s great to see this classic style working for both longer and shorter locks too – it really is a fabulously versatile look. I also loved Amy Adams’ super-sleek, glossy style.


Get the look: Hollywood Waves

Step One: Start by parting your hair to one side – go slightly off-centre for an effortless finish or take your parting deeper for a super-glamorous take on the trend.

Step Two: Prep towel-dried hair using TIGI Bed Head Cult Creations Blow Out cream to smooth your tresses as you blow dry.

Step Three: Mist DESIGNLINE Hot Stop Style Primer over dry locks to protect them from the heat before gently tonging 3-4 inch sections using the ghd Curve Creative Curl Wand. Starting from the front, take diagonal sections and wrap them around the wand, curling away from your face. For more tips on using the Creative Curl Wand, watch our exclusive video guide.

Step Four: Once hair has cooled, run your fingers through the curls to relax them into a wave before sealing the look with a spritz of DESIGNLINE Shine Mist.


Get the look: Poker Straight

Step One: Apply DESIGNLINE Root Boost Volumizing Foam to roots when damp before blow drying and mist over Wella SP Sublime Reflection to create shine. 

Step Two: Once dry, spritz hair with DESIGNLINE Get It Pressed Flat Iron Spray and use the ghd Eclipse Styler to smooth hair section by section from root to tip to create a gorgeous glossy finish.

Step Three: Keep your style straight and prevent frizz with DESIGNLINE Freeze Spray Firm Hold Mist to finish.
