[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We spotted January Jones at the FOX Programming Presentation and she was rocking our favourite summer look so far. Look no further if you would like to add a pop of colour to your makeup as January’s lip colour is perfect. Follow our step by step guide on how to recreate this fun summer style.

  • Step one: Begin by prepping your skin by moisturising your face and neck and then apply a primer.
  • Step two: Apply your foundation, which should closely match your skin tone, followed by concealer for any dark circles and blemishes.
  • Step three: Now you can move on to your eyes. Fill in your eyebrows using a similar shade of eye brow pencil or eye shadow. Well defined brows will help to give you a more polished finish. Select a nude coloured eye shadow and apply this as a base all over your eyelids up to the brow bone. Dramatic eyeliner is next so take a black gel liner and line your upper lashes creating a flick at the end. You can then work on thickening the line gradually to get the desired effect. This is much easier than trying to thin a too thick line. Curl your lashes and then take jet black volume mascara and brush on two coats.
  • Step four: For your cheeks go for a pale pink blusher and highlight the apples of your cheeks for a healthy glow before sweeping it up to your hair line.
  • Step five: Finish off the summer make up look with a bright pink long lasting lipstick or a lip gloss. If you prefer you can use a matte lipstick just make sure that you exfoliate and moisturise your lips first to get a good base.

We love Julianne Hough who always provides us with short hair inspiration. She is never afraid to try something new, this time sporting a textured faux hawk to the Golden Globes. The style actually looked amazing with the art deco inspired Monique Lhuiller dress and gave it an edgy yet sophisticated twist.

 

Step one:

Shampoo and condition hair, adding an extra dose of conditioner to remove any tangles and ensure that it is lovely and glossy. Remember to rinse it out well.

Step two:

Spritz over with volumising spray about an inch from the roots to give it some extra lift. Blow dry hair well using a round brush until it is completely dry.

Step three:

Start from the back of the head and backcomb small one to two inch horizontal sections until you have worked your way right to the front. Take hold of the backcombed Mohawk section and clip it up so it is out of the way.

Step four:

Gently tease the sides to give them extra texture and volume and then part the hair on each side of the temple. Take one of the sides and divide it into a top and bottom section. Twist these back to the nape of the neck, creating little ponytail which then need to be pinned in place. Do exactly the same on the other side.

Step five:

With the top section take three inches of hair from the front, twist the hair to the left hand side and pin it in place. Then take the following three inches, twist to the right and again pin in place. Keep doing this until you reach the back of the head and you have made a twisted style Mohawk.

Step six:

To finish off you can use a touch of volumising spray or dry shampoo to add extra texture and volume where needed, followed by some strong hold hairspray to ensure the style stays in place.

We just could not believe how amazing Kate Middleton looked merely hours after giving birth. The Duchess of Cambridge, 33, looked positively radiant as she stood on the steps of St Mary’s Hospital on Saturday afternoon where she showed her little girl off to the world, and her appearance was flawless.

 

Having given birth at 8.34am Kate emerged only 10 hours later wearing a buttercup yellow and white Jenny Packham dress (she also wore a dress by the same designer after the birth of Prince George) which she paired with nude heels.

As usual Kate went for a natural look when it came to her makeup with a flattering shade of brown for her eye shadow, a hint of blusher and nude lipstick.

To get the same look:

Apply foundation or tinted moisturiser to even out your skin tone. Highlight your cheekbones with a light, rose pink blusher before focusing on your eyes. If necessary fill in your eyebrows with a matching shade of eye shadow but remember that you are trying to create a natural look. For your eye makeup select a mid brown eye shadow and blend this from your lash line up to your brow bone, it should appear lighter as you blend upwards. Line your eyes with dark brown eyeliner on the upper and lower lash line and a coat of mascara completes your eye makeup. Slick on some nude lipstick for a dewy finish.

It is said that Kate always does her own makeup for any public appearance but when it comes to her hair clearly only a professional will do as hairstylist Mrs Cook Tucker was seen entering the hospital. Kate’s locks were blow dried to perfection giving her a bouncy blowout that framed her face nicely. If you would like to recreate Kate’s flowing waves then there is no need to worry if you don’t have your own stylist to hand. We have previously provided you with a step by step guide on how you can get the same effect in the comfort of your own home. You can take a look here.

For those of you signing up for our bridal & red carpet hair courses, it can be tough to choose between our 2 and 4 day courses! Our 4 day courses, complete with a professional photoshoot on the final day, are becoming increasingly popular with our students and as such, we thought that you might like to know a bit more about why that is…

4 day hair course
“I can honestly say I really really enjoyed every moment of the 4 day course and I feel I have learnt so much. I would highly recommend to anyone! If anyone is in 2 minds about doing this course I can honestly tell you it was amazing and I would 100% do it again!!” Emma – 5* Hotcourses review

As with all of our courses, the 4 day course is suitable for ALL experience levels: from absolute beginner to a trained professional – there is something for everyone.

The way that we are able to work in this way is that our 4 day course only ever has a maximum of 6 students at a time, meaning that everyone can get as much or as little help as they need from Pam and her trusty assistants. Unlike our 2 day courses, on which Pam trains using a mix of live model demonstrations and hands on practice for the students using the highest quality training heads (and a live model for braiding practice!), students attending our 4 day course will get the chance to work on live models of their own.

Over the 4 days, you will work with models who have short, medium and long hair so that you get a chance to play with a variety of styles. Whilst of course, there are set styles that Pam will demonstrate on our 2 and 4 day courses (with step by step instructions), you will have the freedom to play around with these and make them your own.

It is important that you know the idea behind Pam’s teaching method is not that you come away having learned how to create a set number of styles, but that you learn the prepping, securing and finishing techniques to equip you with the knowledge to be able to create any style.

Our courses are designed to train people to feel happy and confident to produce all styles once they leave. As with all of our courses, if there are any particular styles that you would like to cover, you are more than welcome to bring in some images and Pam will teach you how to do that as well.

How does the course pan out?

Kate Middleton looked as stylish as usual during her visit to the Turner Contemporary Gallery earlier this month. Pregnant with her second child she showed off her baby bump in a cheetah print dress while her hair was in a messy, volumised ponytail which is the ideal hairstyle of this season. Perfect for both work and weekends, it can be achieved in just ten minutes. You can also add accessories like a pretty headband to dress up the look for date or special occasion.

 

Get the look

Step one:

Wash and condition your hair with volumising shampoo, making sure that you thoroughly rinse your hair. Apply some mousse to your roots before blow drying your hair. It is easier to work your way around your head if you first divide hair into sections.

Step two:

Now that your hair is dry, lightly run over the ends with hair straighteners to create a smooth finish. Avoid going over your roots as you will only flatten out the volume that you have just put in. Flip your hair upside down and comb through from underneath to again achieve more volume.

Step three:

Flip your hair back the right way and pull hair back using just your fingers to form a ponytail. Avoid using a brush for this as you don’t want to flatten your locks or create a look that is too precise. The idea is to have a slightly messy finish. Secure the ponytail using a hair elastic.

Step four:

Take a small section of hair from underneath the ponytail and wrap it around the hair elastic to conceal it. Fix this in place with a bobby pin.

Step five:

Use a touch of invisible oil to make any flyaways disappear, and avoid the stickiness and smell of hairspray. If you prefer to use hairspray then go for a product with light hold as you don’t want hair to have a rigid, crispy look.

We have just found the perfect spring style having spotted Elizabeth Banks at the ‘Resident Advisors’ premiere rocking a cute double bun. This style is great because it is so versatile; you can wear it day to day, to a festival, or even to that special occasion.

 

 

Get the look

Step one:

Wash and condition your hair as normal before applying a small amount of mousse to your roots. Blow dry hair using a rounded brush, focusing on producing lift at the roots.

Step two:

Next, create a deep side parting on the left hand side of your head. Take your curling tongs and loosely curl two inch sections of hair with a large barrel. Make sure that you leave hair to cool before gently brushing through it so that it has a wavy appearance. Curling beforehand also helps when it comes to forming the buns.

Step three:

Pull hair backwards leaving out a small section at the front which should have a gentle wave to it giving it the look of a soft side fringe. With the rest of your hair split it in two sections so that you have a top and bottom half. Start by pinning the top section out of the way.

Step four:

Take hold of the hair in the bottom sections and twist it up to form a donut bun at the nape of your neck and use pins to hold it in place. Now you can release hair in the top section and do the same again, positioning the bun so that it sits on top of the one you have just created. Again, when you are happy pin it in place.

Step five:

To make sure that everything stays in place mist over hair with a touchable hold hairspray.

For the premiere of ‘The Last Man on Earth’ last month January Jones sported a rather unique look which is perfect for turning heads on a night out. The left side had soft waves cascading to her shoulder where as the right was tied back out of the way in a slicked back style which gave a clean, modern, asymmetric feel.

 

Here’s how to get the look

Step one:

Wash and condition your hair as normal and then leave it to air dry naturally. Take your volumising spray and mist it at the roots, on the top, and at the sides of your hair. Use a boar bristle brush and your hair dryer to smooth along the hairline and add in some extra volume at the roots.

Step two:

Now you can create a deep side parting on the right side of your head. You can also part from just behind your left ear, over to the deep side parting. Clip up the section that you have just created at the top left side of your head.

Step three:

With the rest of your hair gather it all up into a sleek bun just under the crown. When you are happy with the position of the bun you can use hairpins to secure it in place. Use a small amount of glossing cream to smooth over any flyaways for a clean look.

Step four:

Unclip the section of hair at the top left side of your head. Use a ¾ inch curling tong and take hold of one inch sections of hair creating pin curls. Leave your hair to completely cool so that the curls are set. Gently brush the hair downwards towards your face so that you create a deep wave effect that is soft and smooth.

Step five:

Finish off by spritzing over your hair with hairspray to keep everything in place.

Why is it that you can never get your hair looking as good as it does when you first leave the salon? A good blow dry can last you several days and it is possible to achieve that professional finish yourself; here, we tell you how:

 

1. Wash your hair as normal, making sure that you rinse thoroughly. Towel dry by blotting rather than rubbing hair to get rid of any excess moisture.

2. Apply volumising spray or mousse, making sure that hair is evenly covered.

3. Now you can pre-dry your hair. You can either do this by leaving your hair to dry naturally so that it is 70-80% dry or you can use your hairdryer to remove moisture before you begin your proper blow dry. If you have a fringe now is the time to dry it properly rather than let it air dry as it will sit much better.

4. Separate hair into sections and secure with clips, leaving one section out. When you start the blow dry pull your fingers through the hair beginning at the roots. Pull hair taut to reduce frizz, focusing air on the roots.

5. Now that your roots are dry you can move on to using a round mixed bristle brush. Pull the brush through your hair making sure that you point the hairdryer down the hair. Start with the ends of your hair as these dry the quickest. Make sure that you still keep the hair taut as you dry.

6. Seal the style with the cool setting on your dryer while hair is still taut. If your hair is long enough you can also roll each dry section up in a Velcro roller.

7. Work your way through each section until all your hair is dry.

8. Finish off by applying serum to tame any flyaways.
