NTAs 2018: From Laura Whitmore to Vanessa White, see the most stylish hairstyles from the red carpet

All Things Hair | 24 January 2018

And the award for the best hair goes to…


Last night saw the National Television Awards 2018 ceremony take place in a very windy London to celebrate stars of the small screen. As you can imagine, it was a star-studded bash, with celebrities like Natalia Dyer and Georgia Toff in attendance.

While most people tuned in to watch the A-list stars scoop up an award, the All Things Hair team were busy gazing at the marvellous hairstyles on offer. Want to see our pick of the best? Of course you do – just keep on scrolling!

Our favourite hairstyles from the NTAs 2018

Amber Davies

Wearing her waist-length tresses in ’80s-inspired corkscrew curls, the Love Island babe wowed on the red carpet last night. Following in the footsteps of Bella Hadid and Gabrielle Union, this ultra glam look continues to go from strength to strength.

The ’80s-inspired styles you can’t ignore.

Ferne McCann

Ferne McCann showed off her new blonde hue with a high ponytail which perfectly showed off her backless dress. To make sure your look is ready for the red carpet, wrap a piece of your hair around the base of your ponytail and secure using a bobby pin. This will hide your elastic band and make your style look even cuter!

The best ponytail hairstyles to try now.

Georgia Toffolo

The Made in Chelsea star and Queen of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! 2017 styled her long blonde hair in a half-up, half-down style.

TIGI Bed Head Full Of It Volume Finishing Hairspray

Editor’s tip: Get Georgia’s volume in your hair by using the TIGI Bed Head Full Of It Volume Finishing Hairspray for a firm yet flexible hold.

Jennifer Metcalfe

Styling her long dark brown tresses in a messy high bun, the Hollyoaks actress added a fresh set of bangs to finish her look. However we have a sneaky suspicion that those bangs are in fact the ends of her hair, styled to look like bangs (or a clever clip in) – either way we love this look on Jennifer.

Laura Whitmore

From Maya Jama to Laura Whitmore, no red carpet is complete without someone styling their tresses in a side-parted wavy finish – it really is a red carpet fave and we can see why!

The best red carpet hairstyles a girl could ask for.

Natalia Dyer

Making a surprise appearance at the NTA2018, Stranger Things actress Natalia Dyer wore her golden blonde shoulder-length tresses with a soft wavy finish and rounded fringe.

Sarah Harding

There is nothing we love more than braided hairstyles at All Things Hair, so obviously we fell totally in love with Sarah Harding’s halo braid.

TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray

Editor’s tip: To help your braided style withstand the elements, spritz your tresses with TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray before braiding.

Not just for creating beach waves, a sea salt spray adds grit to your hair, making it perfect for holding braided styles in place for longer.

Vanessa White

It was a mini The Saturdays reunion yesterday with Mollie King, Rochelle Humes and Vanessa White in attendance! While they all had fab hairstyles, we have to say it was Vanessa’s dark wavy bob that made our final cut.

Make your bob pop with this hair colour.


Our favourite hairstyles from the NTAs 2017


It may have been a year since the last NTAs but that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate all the good hairstyles from the red carpet in 2017.

Helen George

Call the Midwife star Helen George has been sporting pastel pink hair for a while now, but we noticed that last night, her tresses looked slightly different! Notice how her mane starts off with a rose gold hue at the roots, before transforming into a flirty pink colour. Ooh la la!


TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Shampoo


Editor’s tip: Want to try you hand at Helen George-inspired pink hair? Then don’t forget to swap your regular shampoo and conditioner duo for one that is specifically designed for coloured tresses. We suggest trying the TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Colour Vibrance Protection Shampoo and Conditioner to help maintain your colour vibrancy.

Lilah Parsons

Presenter and DJ Lilah Parsons opted to style her long bob into textured waves for the red carpet event. As well as tucking one side of her mane behind her ear, Lilah left her hair parting uneven to add to the undone, disheveled look.

Holly Willoughby

This Morning TV presenter Holly Willoughby never fails to wow us in the hair department, and last night was no different. The blonde bombshell flaunted a flirty wavy hairstyle, while the front section of her hair was twisted and pinned back for a pretty finish.

Alesha Dixon

British singer Alesha Dixon sported a fashion-forward top knot for the NTAs 2017 awards ceremony, and we’re totally digging it! She paired her hair-raising updo with a choppy, side-swept face-framing layers – now if that’s not red carpet-worthy, we don’t know what is!

Jennie McAlpine red curly hair

Jennie McAlpine

Known for her role as Fiz Brown in the soap opera Coronation Street, Jennie McAlpine left her natural curls on show for the event, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Her fiery red mane looked super glamorous, and it’s making us want to embrace our natural hair texture, too!


VO5 Frizz Free Cream


Editor’s tip: If you have curly hair and want to help keep frizz at bay, apply a small amount of the VO5 Frizz Free Cream to your mane after styling.
