Sometimes a slicked-back ponytail can appear a little harsh, especially when you already have a defined face shape. However, Neelam Gill paired hers with a classic middle parting, giving her glossy ‘do some extra feminine charm. And guess what? You can do the same, too!
Half-up, half-down bun
There’s a reason why Ella Eyre revisits this chic half-up, half-down hairstyle again and again. Yep, this ‘do stylishly allows her to show off the length of her gorgeous curls, while also keeping them off her face. #Winning!

The best hairstyles from the NME Awards 2017
The fun doesn’t have to stop there! Just keep on scrolling down to see the looks that stole our hearts from the 2017 NME Awards.
Bob and top knot
Ex-The Pussycat Dolls star Ashley Roberts rocked up to the NME Awards 2017 with her blonde ombre bob styled into an edgy half-up, half-down top knot.
As you probably already know, top knots were majorly trending in 2016, but Ashley’s proved that this quirky style is here to stay for 2017, too!
Messy wavy updo
Charli XCX’s red carpet hairstyle featured textured, messy waves, and a disheveled-looking updo. Her undone hairstyle was paired with some black sunglasses, a belt choker and some very sparkly smokey eyeshadow. Ooh la la!
Editor’s tip: To recreate Charli’s textured waves, spray the VO5 Sea Salt Spray into damp hair. Once dried, style your updo, before using the VO5 Ultimate Hold Hairspray to help hold your hair in place.
Radio presenter Clara Amfo’s voluminous afro never fails to wow us. At the NME Awards 2017 event, the star chose to showcase her natural ‘fro, by leaving it fluffed out and looking larger than ever.
Model Chloe Lloyd no doubt has an envious head of long, blonde hair. For the music event, she opted to style her strands into soft, sultry waves, which came complete with a neat middle parting. If you ask us, she looked absolutely stunning!
