Oscars Red Carpet Bridal Hair & Makeup Inspiration for 2017
The Oscars has got to be one of the best places for bridal hair and makeup artists to stay on top of all the latest red carpet hair and makeup looks that are set to be hot to trot for special events and wedding alike for the year ahead.
We’ve picked out our top four looks from The Oscars this year for you to take a look at and have a go on your training heads or clients! Don’t forget, if you’re an online bridal hair student and you’d love some help getting these styles just right, you can always send Pam a message using the Ask Pam tab and she’ll take you right through it, with her expert advice.
Beautiful Blow Dry – Emma Roberts
Who doesn’t want to look like Jessica Rabbit in real life? Emma Roberts introduced us to a whole new world of glam at this year’s Oscars, with her classic, deep side-parted Hollywood do, lush lashes and killer red pout all set off by that amazing rose gold hair colour, which we’re set to see a lot more of in 2017.
If there’s one look that you should get down as a bridal hair and makeup artist, this is it – Hollywood glamour never goes out of fashion!
We’ll show you how to create gorgeous, soft curls and waves on our 2 day, 4 day and online bridal hair courses so that you can perfect this look on your clients, or find out how to blow-dry hair into this bouncy style on our 1 day blowdrying course, with Create Beautiful Hair expert Jacquie Gee.
Join us our one of our bridal makeup courses to discover how to apply flawless makeup, like these light smokey eyes with a gilded edge, that is the must-have eye makeup for 2017.
Natural Curls – Halle Berry
From way back when, Halle Berry has always shown us how to work with natural beauty and her look at The Oscars this year was no different.
Demonstrating that BIG curls are pretty awesome, we’re hoping that we’ll now be seeing more clients wanting to embrace their natural curls rather than reaching for the straighteners.
We’re all guilty of wanting what we don’t have, but if you have a bride on her trial day with fabulous curls, don’t be afraid to nudge her in the direction of having a go at bringing them out. As a bridal hairstylist, it can be daunting to attempt to work with what is often seen as unruly hair, but if you can get the technique down on one of our bridal hair courses, you’ll have nothing to fear and your curly haired clients will love you for it!
Remember, the most expensive products aren’t always the best: Pam loves Boots Essentials Curl Creme (priced at a bargain £1.99 for 250ml!) for creating smooth, crunch free curls.
Fabulous Short Hair – Scarlett Johansson
More and more brides are starting to realise that they don’t have to have really long hair to look amazing on their wedding day. With the right skills, short crops can be very versatile.
Scarlett Johansson ditched her long blonde locks a while back for a short, androgynous style but as you can see from her winning look at The Oscars, with just a few tweaks her do has been totally transformed.
With a gentle curl and some great root lift, showing off those uber-trendy grown out roots, Scarlett’s short tresses look cool, contemporary and undeniably feminine.
Paired with shimmering gold eyes with well defined lashes and a rose pink pout, this makes the ideal look for a funky summer bride.
Sleek Low Bun – Sofia Carson
Move over Dita Von Teese, there’s a new raven haired beauty in town! Whilst the natural Boho look is still very much a big deal, it’s not for everyone and you will find that you encounter lots of clients who very definitely want a very sleek and structured look.
When you’re attempting a classic bridal look like this, it is absolutely essential that just like Sofia Carson, there isn’t a hair out of place! Mirror-shine and a flyaway-free finish is something that a look like this can’t be without. Sofia’s strong, striking brows also play a big part in this style, framing the face beautifully with a neat edge.
We love Sofia’s choice of hair accessory which wouldn’t look out of place at all on a bride saying her ‘I dos’, so if you’re thinking of trying out a style like this on one of your brides why not use this as inspiration as have fun adding in some gorgeous combs. Gillian Million is one of out favourite Ateliers and has a wide range of bridal hair accessories that you’ll love!
