    Most Stylish Celebrity Mothers And Daughters

    skl-mothers

    At Sinéad Kelly London, we love making all mums feel more glamorous and confident about their hair. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve let things slide or how much of a rut you’re stuck in – there’s always time to change things.

    In honour of Mother’s Day on 26 March we’ve been looking through some pictures of gorgeous celebrity mums and their daughters and we’re happy to see there are lots of examples of ladies that look just as amazing as their daughters do. After all, when you get older you know what suits you more.

    Here are five fabulous famous mother-daughter pairings that we can use as hair inspiration:

    Reese Witherspoon and Ava Witherspoon

    Yummy mummy Reese has luscious light blonde hair, which is in great condition. Sometimes she blow dries it straight but when she’s relaxing at home with her family, she shows that it can look lovely with beachy curls.

    Her lookalike daughter has the same type of hair with a more modern colour. As you know, we won the L’Oréal colour trophy for our blue bob – we love to have fun with hair too. However, we did this will keeping the model’s hair healthy and shiny, showing colour does not have to damage hair and in fact can enhance it.

    Yasmin and Amber Le Bon

    Apart from the fringe and their naturally straight hair, Yasmin and Amber don’t look that much alike but they’re both hair role models in their own right. Yasmin is 52 but there’s not a wrinkle, not that you can see one under her fringe, which keeps her youthful.

    Meanwhile Amber’s candyfloss pink hair is very refreshing for spring. Amber dyes her hair a lot, almost enough to match her hair with her outfit and her lipstick. Sometimes, it is good to experiment.

    Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson

    The blonde bombshells of Hollywood, Kate and Goldie always look party-ready. With big bouncy blowdries and big smiles, you know you’d have a lot of fun if you went on a night out with this pair. Goldie shows you can look glamorous well into your 60s and notice that like Yasmin Le Bon, she also has a fringe.

    Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber

    These two are so similar! You can tell Kaia is looking at her mum for style inspiration and why not? Cindy was a supermodel and still looks super gorgeous with her highlighted brown hair. Highlights or balayage highlights make any shade of brown look more luxurious and you can really see the colour when the hair is loosely curled.

    Melanie Griffith and Dakota Johnson

    Dakota, star of the 50 Shades of Grey movies – took her actress mother Melanie as her date to the Oscars and doesn’t Melanie look proud? Both ladies wore their hair in similar up dos with a chic French chignon at the back and then with a ruched up fringe and some hair falling around the face to soften the look. This hairstyle suits all ages!

    Now have a lovely Mother’s Day and we hope to see you in the salon soon!

    Fabulous Irish Female Hair Inspiration

    irishhakir

    Happy St Patrick’s Day! Our very own Sinéad is Irish and we are very proud of our Irish roots.

    As St Patrick’s Day is all about celebrating, we’re thinking about how we’ll wear our hair when we raise a toast to the Emerald Isle, and how we’ll help our customers do the same. We’re often inspired by looking closely at celebrities with great hair and as it’s the day of the Irish, today we’re focusing on the most fabulous Irish celebrities around. These influential and beautiful ladies look fabulous and inspire us to be more experimental with our hair.

    Una Healy

    una-hair

    The Saturdays singer turned solo star has gorgeous, tumbling auburn locks but admits she’s had a bit of help to create her signature au naturel look. It’s the hair equivalent of ‘no make-up’ make-up – us ladies know that to look natural requires a bit of preparation. Una keeps her colour shiny with regular visits to her colourist to enhance her natural red tones, and in the summer she adds some lighter shades.

    She uses Great Lengths hair extensions to achieve its long length and to create more volume. After having children, some mothers find their hair is less thick and so hair extensions can help.

    Laura Whitmore

    laura-whitmore

    Laura has an amazing wardrobe, always getting onto the best-dressed lists when she attends celebrity parties. But it’s the rock chick, festival look that the I’m A Celebrity host does best – her first job was on MTV after all.

    At last year’s Coachella festival – the festival that everyone wants to go to – she looked gorgeous with loose, beachy waves.
    Naturally, Laura has quite straight, flat hair so to create this look she’s prepared in advance. The day before you want a style like this, braid your hair into a boxer braid while it’s damp. Braids are very cool at festivals so you can wear this look on day 1. Then after a day of partying you can simply wake up, untie the braids and loosely brush your hair with your fingers until the braids are loose and smooth. Finish with some shine spray to avoid frizz and you’re good to rejoin the party.

    If you’re one of Eimear’s 72,000 Instagram followers, you’ll know that this Irish mum of two is always on the go and always looks incredible, whether she’s working on an ad, looking after her kids or travelling. She’s a real inspiration!

    Eimear has a lovely shade of blonde hair, which lifts up her face and complements her big blue eyes. Light shades can be great for mums – as long as you maintain the colour – as it makes us look brighter and more alert, even when we’ve had sleepless nights.

    Eimear is evidence that you don’t have to compromise on the condition of your hair to be blonde as her hair is glossy and shiny.
    At Sinéad Kelly London, we use Olaplex to protect the hair and some people say their hair is in better condition after that then it was when they were their natural colour.

    Saoirse Ronan

    The Irish actress looked effortlessly chic and pretty in a loose, high voluminous top knot at the SAG Awards. This style is perfect for a date night or a big night out when you want everyone to pay you maximum attention…for the right reasons.To recreate this look, apply a palm sized amount of volumising mousse on towel-dried hair. Then dry the hair with a large round brush to create a big blowdry.

    To recreate this look, apply a palm sized amount of volumising mousse on towel-dried hair. Then dry the hair with a large round brush to create a big blowdry. Next, use a large barrelled curling tong to create loose waves and texture. Take a comb and tease the roots of the hair, pulling it loosely into a high ponytail leaving some height at the front. Backcomb the ponytail and then wrap it around itself in a big deconstructed bun before securing with Kirby grips.
    Let some pieces fall around the hairline for a loose, whimsical and more effortlessly pretty look. Now secure with hairspray as even though it looks loose, you don’t want it to fall out!

     

    Have a fabulous night, whatever you do! We know you will as when your hair looks good, you’ll feel on top of the world before you’ve even left the house!
