While the Oscars are synonymous with elegance and sophistication, in recent years we’ve started to see more of our favourite stars break the mould and rock statement, iconic styles with tons of personality. Last night’s 87th Academy Awards saw two stand out looks for Kieron Fowles, our UK Creative Director. He shares his top tips for recreating them yourself…
“I’m loving Rita Ora‘s platinum pixie crop at the moment. She’s already shown us so many variations of how to wear it but her Oscars look is my favourite to date. It’s a very sleek, expensive look with an elegant side parting which fits the formality of the awards perfectly while also showing off her playful side.
Kelly Osbourne rocked her purple hair with style, showing off another fabulous, creative way to style shorter locks. Kelly’s look is great if you’ve got bags of confidence and attitude – you’ll have no problem pulling it off! Speak to your stylist about the cut and our Muted Mauve iNSTAMAT!C semi-permanent colour is perfect for creating Kelly’s cool purple hue.
Rita’s look is more wearable day-to-day and is so easy to achieve on cropped hair:
Step One: Create a strong side parting and work DESIGNLINE Volumizing Gel through damp locks before blow drying.
Step Two: Mist over Paul Mitchell The Shine hairspray to add plenty of gloss to your look.
Step Three: You’ll want to keep the hair as close to your head as possible without it looking ‘stuck down.’ So to avoid too much volume, but still keep a light finish, smooth down your tresses using a serum such as Wella Professionals Mirror Polish and complete the look with a spritz of TIGI Bed Head Headrush Shine Spray.”
