    Oscars 2017: Hair Highlights

    oscarshair-17

    It’s the most glamorous night of the year, and the Oscars 2017 did not disappoint! There may have been confusion on stage as La La Land were told halfway through their acceptance speech that they hadn’t won Best Picture, but the stars’ outfits were smooth and sleek.

    It’s not only inspiring in terms of fashion, but we can learn a lot from looking at the celebrities’ hair. Their stylists have designed styles that have to last all night as the red carpet starts at 4pm and the after-parties go on until at least 4am. Not only that, but they can’t afford to have a stray hair anywhere as the stars know that they’re going to be posing for photos and talking to TV camera crews all night long and the cameras always detect frizz!

    Fortunately, there were some stunning hair styles – both down and up – that we can look at and recreate for our next big night out. It’s easier than you think to look like an Oscar winner with your hair as most of the styles work because of their simplicity. Let’s have a closer look at six of the most special styles at The Oscars 2017:

    Nicole Kidman

    oscars-nic

    Nicole looked statuesque in a long beige maxi dress that had some gorgeous beading embellishment. To properly show off the detail on her dress she went for a soft up do with a loose low bun. It’s a look worn by actresses on red carepts for years as it’s not too harsh on her face but it means that she doesn’t have to worry about what her hair looks like as it’s back and up.

    Emma Stone

    The Best Actress winner has a signature style of wearing waves in her lovely red hair and she stayed true to the tried and tested at The Oscars. Sinéad Kelly London specialises in creating blowdries with a vintage wave – we can easily help you achieve this Oscar-winning hair style!

    Jessica Biel

    When you have a dress with so many sequins, you just want to let them shine, don’t you? Jessica, married to the equally gorgeous Justin Timberlake, looks fierce in her gold dress with slicked back hair. When she turned around, we could see that her hair was all rolled up in a chignon. Again, this is not a complicated look but works beautifully with her dress.

    Naomie Harris

    oscars-naomie

    It was great to see a British actress at the awards ceremony and Naomie looked lovely with her hair super straight and behind her ears. The benefit of a style like this is her stylist could carry some mini straighteners in her handbag and touch it up throughout the night. If you have naturally straight hair, you’ll find this style easier to pull off for an elegant, sophisticated and neat look.

    Hailee Steinfeld

    oscars-hailee

    The American actress read out the Best Actress award and got it right and she also got it right with her dress and hair. In fact, her double bun style was one of the most fashion-forward of the night. It’s fresh and fun and a little bit different. If you want to create a talking point, this is the style for you!

    Felicity Jones

    oscars-felicity

    The British actress looked so pretty with her half-up and half-down style. It’s soft and feminine and because the hair’s off her face, it won’t frizz. A half-up, half-down style is a classic one for formal balls and dinners and also for wedding hair as you still look like yourself, but without the worry of frizz. What’s not to like about that?

    Date Night Hair Inspiration

    sinead-featured

    February is the month of love and whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s with your loved one or going out with the girls, you deserve to look your best.

    When your hair, make-up and dress is on point, you feel fabulous. You’ll be able to walk into any room with confidence and have him eating out of your hand by the end of the night…whether you entered with him or arrived with the girls!

    Us ladies have all the power when it comes to making men go weak at the knees, it’s up to us to make the most of what we have. At Sinéad Kelly London, we’re here to help. Here are a couple of date night looks we’ve created for our lovely customers:

    Molly May Schofield

    Molly May looked dazzling with vintage waves when we styled her for a Christmas party. She posted this photo to her Instagram account thanking our executive stylist Vas Mikellides. Vas, a former artist and illustrator, has a special talent for making hair into a work of art and after a thorough wash and dry, he used tongs to create this glamorous look, straight out of the 1920s. Molly is a blonde bombshell! What do you think?

     

    Holly Willoughby

    Holly trusts Sinéad Kelly London to create her a perfect look that withstands the scrutiny of HD TV. She always looks flawless and for ITV ‘s Gala party, we loved her sleek blowdry with gentle curled ends created by Ciler Peksah. This is a flattering feminine look as she has the body but she also looks groomed and thanks to a bit of haispray, this look will hold all night. If you’re wearing a striking dress like Holly is, the last thing you need is a bold hairstyle to detract from the dress so this softer style complements the outfit personally.

     

    Whether you want vintage waves like Molly, soft waves like Holly or maybe something smooth and straight, give the Sinéad Kelly London team a call and we’ll talk you through the options to find the ideal hair style for your dated night look.
