Rita Ora’s Tinkerbell updo

Rita Ora always looks fab, but we’re sure you’ll agree she looked like something out of a fairy tale with her white floor-length gown and romantic curly updo.

This curl-friendly hair mousse will accentuate your curl or wave pattern, smoothing frizz and leaving you with red carpet-worthy coils.

Pixie Lott’s bobby pins hairstyle

If there’s anything we’ve learnt from the recent runways and red carpet, it’s that school hair accessories are having a major revival — isn’t that right, Pixie Lott?

Whether you opt for a Blair Waldorf-inspired headband or simple bobby pins, you’ll be seriously on-trend.

Camila Cabello’s braided ponytail

The best thing about Camila Cabello’s braided ponytail? It leaves plenty room for sexy, undone texture, which the star pulls off like a pro. Are you ready to do the same?

Editor’s tip: If your locks tend to fall on the finer side, plump up your braided hairstyle with the TONI&GUY Root Lift Sculpting Powder!

Simply dust it over your braid after you’ve weaved it, then pancake it (AKA gently pulling apart each section of the braid) and prepare to be amazed by its textured, thicker appearance.

Hailey Baldwin’s mermaid waves

And before you get major mane envy, grab some sea salt spray and look at our tutorial on how to get beachy waves at home, right now. Mermaid hair here we come!

Feeling nostalgic? See the looks we were loving this time last year with our Brit Awards 2017 throwback, below.

Perrie Edwards’ edgy fishtail braid

Little Mix star Perrie Edwards rocked the red carpet with her edgy fishtail braid, which was divided into 3 sections. It was only recently that we reported that the star had chopped off her long locks in favour of a lob, which leads us to believe that Perrie sought the help of some trusty hair extensions to create her  red carpet look.

Emeli Sande’s curly frohawk

Emeli Sande always wows us with her amazing vocal talent, but yesterday, it was her hair that grabbed our attention. The singer stepped out with a curly blonde ‘frohawk that featured slicked-back, wet look sides. #Slay!

Grace Chatto’s long blue hair

Clean Bandit star Grace Chatto graced the BRITS Awards 2017 red carpet with her ultra long, pastel blue hair. This mesmerising mermaid-inspired hue is set to be big for spring/summer 2017, so be sure to keep this hair colour on your radar!

Editor’s picks: Considering dyeing your hair like Grace’s? Opt for a shampoo and conditioner duo that has been specially formulated for coloured hair, like the TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Shampoo and Conditioner, in order to help maintain your colour’s vibrancy.

Myleene Klass’ floral updo

Presenter Myleene Klass is clearly a fan of hair accessories, considering that she rocked not 1, but 4 giant red floral hair-clips at the awards ceremony.

Styling her long hair into a high bun, Myleene bedecked her updo with flowers for a latina-inspired look. Ooh la la!

Pixie Lott’s slicked-back ‘do

Singer Pixie Lott first made it onto our radar with her platinum blonde locks, which she’s been rocking for years. At the BRIT Awards 2017 ceremony, she styled her blonde mane into a slicked-back, bouffant style. Just look at all that volume!

Katy Perry’s knotted faux hawk

Pop sensation Katy Perry flaunted an edgy faux hawk for the awards ceremony, but unlike Emeli Sande’s updo, Katy’s one featured a row of twisted bantu knots.

Not only did this succession of tiny buns stay put throughout the whole night, but we reckon that when she let’s them loose, Katy will be left with luscious waves, too.
