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.

Voluminous afro

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.

Chloe Lloyd

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!

Editor’s tip: To get your hair looking as shiny and smooth as Chloe’s, use the VO5 Tame & Shine Spray after styling!
