Hailee Steinfield’s glamorous blow out

American actress and singer Hailee Steinfeld often sports sexy, sleek hairstyles; but for the Capital Ball, she opted for a glam, bouncy blow out hairstyle, instead – and doesn’t she look utterly divine?

If you think you can’t rock this Kim Sears-worthy look to your next festival, think again, because Hailee is proving all you naysayers wrong!

Zara Larsson’s loose spiral curls

Ladies, mark our words: spiral curls are here to stay! And at this year’s Summertime Ball, Lush Life singer Zara Larsson proved us right when she debuted this flirty spiralled hairstyle.

Instead of going for classic Flashdance-esque curls, the star modernised the throwback style by opting for something a little looser. We don’t know about you, but we’re definitely giving this hot-to-trot look a whirl!

Jesy Nelson’s candyfloss pink hair

Little Mix star Jesy Nelson isn’t one to shy away from experimenting with hair colours. We recently reported she went blonde (with the help of a wig), but in the latest transformation twist, the star ditched her Goldilocks hair in favour of something dreamier: candyfloss pink hair!

Since Jesy and her fellow bandmates were preforming, we’re sure Jesy picked this showstopping pink colour to make herself standout – and it certainly did the job!

Anne-Marie’s silver waves

Rockabye singer and songwriter Anne-Marie channelled major silver screen siren vibes with this sultry, classic wavy hairstyle.

Having already proved lob-length grey hair is anything but boring, Anne-Marie definitely stole the show with this shimmering look.

Editor’s tip: Want your mane to look this star-worthy? After creating your gorgeous curls, set the look with the TIGI Bedhead Headrush Shine Spray, to give your locks a surreal sheen. Easy peasy, eh?

Ella Eyre’s half-up, half-down hairstyle

Ella Eyre always looks fab, but we’re sure you’ll agree she looked all kinds of cool with her Spice girl-esque curly half-up, half-down hairstyle.

If you’re desperate to make your natural hair pop, take note of Ella’s golden-blonde hue, which enhances her curls and brightens up her overall look! We’re totally sold.
