Red Carpet Styling

January 6, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Looking at your favorite stars on TV seems to attract your attention to hairstyles more than reading a magazine. For example, seeing Kate Winslet’s soft tresses or Jennifer Anniston’s sleek and straight look on the red carpet makes you want to get up and style your own hair just like theirs. There are so many stars on the red carpet who have a variety of looks, but one thing is in common and that is the way the celebs got their look.

Although the red carpet has so many looks, they are all achieved by one common source: heat. Whether it is by a straightener or a curling iron, the stars of Hollywood always look flawless on the red carpet and now you can too. The process for celebrity styling can be very complex but with these few simplified steps, you can accomplish the perfect look for all your nights out.

One of the best parts about styling hair for a big event is that you can use your hair straightener to create so many styles. Not many people know about the versatile functions of a hair  straightener, but when you put this tool to work there are so many things it can accomplish. Going for a polished look is one option, which you can create by simply running a straightener through your hair in a matter of ten or fifteen minutes. Start with your heat protectant spray and begin straightening with an iron. The size will vary based on the type of hair you have. For thick and curly hair, 3-inch wide plates are advised and for thin hair, 1-inch plates are best. Another tip to remember is to run the straightener vertically through your hair to give it a smoother look.

If you are looking to get soft waves, you can easily create just that with a hair straightener. It’s almost identical to the process of straightening your hair, which makes the process even simpler for the stylist. The best way to create curls is to start at the crown of the hair and clamp down. Next while the plates are closed, turn the iron in one full circle and then begin running it down your hair just like you would if you were straightening. There is no standing and waiting with a curling iron in your hair if you use a hair straightener. This process is so efficient when you are short on time as well. Finish off your curls with a fresh spritz of root lifter spray and a quick run through with your fingers to loosen the curls slightly.

Red carpet hairstyles may look impossible to achieve when you see your favorite stars with ridiculously beautiful styles. However, after following the steps above, you will realize how easy it can be to create the exact same looks without spending a fortune on a stylist or a Hollywood curling iron or straightener. Get started making your hair red carpet worthy for your perfect night on the town!
