Nominations for the ‘Best Hair’ category are in…

Last night, filmmakers from across the globe came together at the Royal Albert Hall in London for the 70th British Academy Film Awards. With massive stars like Nicole Kidman and Emma Stone in attendance, there was some fierce competition in the style stakes, especially when it came to hair! If you didn’t manage to watch the BAFTAs 2017, don’t fret: we’ve rounded up our favourite hairstyles from the night just for you, so read on to find out which looks made the cut.

BAFTAs 2017: Our favourite 5 hairstyles

Anya Taylor-Joy

20-Year-old Split actress Anya Taylor-Joy just proved that ponytails are anything but boring with this chic red carpet style. For the event, her light blonde tresses were tied back into a low ponytail for a simple yet sophisticated ‘do that complemented her extravagant pleated gown perfectly.

Bryce Dallas Howard

Known for her roles in Jurassic World and the Twilight saga, American actress Bryce Dallas Howard sported a messy top knot for the star-studded event. Her signature red hair and soft, face-framing fringe really worked to bring out the green in her eyes.

Editor’s tip: Want to try and recreate Bryce’s messy top knot at home? We recommend spritzing a sea salt spray, like the Toni&Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray through your hair before styling, to give your style a more disheveled, undone texture.

Kate Middleton

The Duchess of Cambridge always looks flawless, but she looked like an actual Disney princess at this year’s BAFTAs. Choosing to wear her glossy brunette locks in an elegant chignon, Kate looked every bit elegant, and also really made the most of the strapless bardot neckline of her dress with her updo choice!

Editor’s tip: For hair as shiny as Kate’s, give your strands a spritz with the TIGI Bed Head Headrush Spray, to help add a layer of gloss to your mane!

Daisy Ridley

We’re used to seeing British actress Daisy Ridley with her hair tied up when playing the part of Rey in Star Wars, so we almost didn’t recognise her in this glamorous get-up! Her chin-length, brunette bob was coiffed back for a voluminous, windswept vibe which looked oh-so-cool.

Amy Adams

Updos were clearly a popular choice for this year’s awards ceremony, and we loved actress Amy Adams‘ glamorous ‘do. Unlike Bryce Dallas Howard’s lived-in, messy top knot, Amy opted for a more sleek style. Her fiery red locks were slicked back and twisted into a perfectly polished braided bun, which looked absolutely amazing with the backless mesh detail of her dress.
