America’s Next Top Model: Our favourite hairstyles from the premier party

Take a peek at these stunning red-carpet 'dos!  

Last night saw the America’s Next Top Model premier party take place in New York, celebrating the launch of Cycle 23 (the 23rd run of the show!). And as you can imagine, it was a star-studded bash, with attendees such as Ashley Graham, Cardi B, and British singer Rita Ora all working some seriously hot celebrity styles.

Seeing as these A-listers would be rubbing shoulders with some rather famous faces, they pulled out all the stops with their evening attire! And while we love all the fancy frills and floor-length gowns donned by these celebs, what we’re really interested in, is the incredible hairstyles on display.

So, to see our fave looks from the glamorous event, simply scroll down and gaze in awe at the model-worthy manes!

The best hairstyles from the America’s Next Top Model premier party

Rita Ora’s sleek ombre mane

New host and judge of America’s Next Top Model, Rita Ora sure does know how to rock a chic hairdo!

For the red carpet event, Rita styled her blonde ombre strands straight and sleek, and opted for a sultry side parting. And in true A-list style, she decided to complete her evening look, by working a pair of gold droplet earrings. Ooh la la!

Editor’s tip: For a similar look, part your mane into a neat side parting, and apply some VO5 Heat Protect Serum to your strands, before smoothing them down with a slimline pair of straighteners.

This clever-working serum won’t only help protect your mane from heat damage, but it’ll also make your hair look ultra shiny, too!

Cardi B’s blunt bob and bangs

Singer and rapper Cardi B may have experimented with a number of ‘out-there’ hairstyles in the past, but her blunt fringe will always remain her signature look.

And for the America’s Next Top Model premier party, she stayed true to form, by rocking a jet black bob with a super sharp fringe! Sigh, if only we could pull off bangs as well as she does.

Ashley Graham’s wavy, ombre ponytail

Model Ashley Graham – who is set to join Rita Ora as a judge on the 23rd cycle of America’s Next Top Model – opted for a high, wavy ponytail for the premier party.

We love how her brown ombre hair perfectly showcases all of the different hues, from the ultra dark roots to the chestnut brown ends. Time to add amazing tresses to the list of things we’re envious of Ashley for!
