Hollywood Hairstyles for the Red Carpet
Trends come and go, but styling products stay forever- especially the fun, classic brands such as Finesse and Aqua Net. We have the top hairstyle trends that can be created using these classic products, vetted by celebrity stylist Jim Crawford (also the Lead Hairstylist on the new hit show Project Accessory) – these are the looks you’ll be seeing on the Red Carpet this upcoming season! Crawford gives the “how-to” breakdown on three must-have hairstyles for perfect star moments.
First Look: The Bow
“For an incredible variation on a bun, try a bow! Instead of looking like a ballerina, look like a princess,” says Crawford.
This chic and elegant style can easily be achieved with these simple hair how-tos from Jim:
Step 1: Start with dirty hair – it will allow hair to lie flat against your head and the natural oils will keep it shiny. Comb hair into a low ponytail and secure with a rubber band. Make sure the ponytail looks sleek and smooth by setting it with a strong, reliable hairspray like Aqua Net Extra Super Hold Hairspray #3
Step 2: Cut a piece a string, about 1 foot long and grab a friend to help!
Step 3: Make sure the ponytail is combed flat, then grab the end of hair and pull to the top of your crown.
Step 4: Have a friend wrap the piece of string under the ponytail, pull it over the ponytail and tie a knot to create the first loop.
Step 5: Put your finger horizontally above the knot and let the end hang down over it to create the second loop.
Step 6: Finish off the look by tying another knot to secure the bow!
Step 7: Hairspray, hairspray, hairspray! Apply a second coat of Aqua Net Super Hold Hairspray #3. Your hair should feel stiff, so that it will hold the style; leaving you with a shiny, feminine look.
