Looks We Loved: The Fashion Awards 2021

Searching for some style inspo? From Rochelle Hume’s soft waves to Munroe Bergdorf’s XXL lengths, these were the hair looks ruling The Fashion Awards

It’s officially December so that can only mean one thing… it’s party season! With a return to IRL Christmas parties, now is the perfect time to go all out with some festive sparkle and a new ‘do. So if you’re looking for some inspo, let us share all about two on-trend red carpet hair looks seen on Rochelle Humes and Monroe Bergdorf for The Fashion Awards 2021.

Slicked-back, XXL lengths for Monroe Bergdorf

For Munroe’s look, celebrity hairstylist Jay Birmingham wanted to create “something truly show stopping”. Describing the hairstyle as “outlandish, bold and beautiful”, he kept the hair simple and elegant, while XXL hair pieces were added to elevate Monroe’s look. Beautyworks Clip In Extensions (in 26 inch length) were used, with the shade jet black chosen to blend beautifully with Munroe’s own hair.

“The key to this look was the crisp and clean parting down the centre of the hair, and of course the glass-like finish on the hair,” says Jay. “I prepared her hair with Color Wow Dream Coat. I swear by this product as it works to gloss the hair, smooth the cuticles and improve texture.”

To finish Monroe’s look, Jay used Color Wow Mistical Shine Spray. To slick down any flyaways, Jay applied the product using his hands. This also helped to position the hair perfectly down the centre of Monroe’s back, as it sat over her shoulders.  

Soft waves and a modern ‘lob’ for Rochelle Humes

Having debuted a shorter ‘lob’ at the awards, Rochelle Humes caused quite the stir on social media as fans flocked to compliment the new look. To accentuate the new cut, Jay Birmingham worked with Rochelle to create a “contemporary and effortless” style which was the epitome cool girl chic. The perfect partner for her tulle skirt and corset outfit, the soft waves (which were placed carefully over one side of her shoulder) added a touch of glam without going overboard.

To add some extra volume, Jay used Beautyworks Clip In extensions. Ideal for party season, the temporary extensions are perfect for creating a fuller look.

To prep Rochelle’s hair and reduce flyaways, Jay used Color Wow Dream Coat. Finally, he used Living Proof Shine Spray for a glossy finish. Ideal for adding extra shine and giving strands that ‘expensive look,’ it’s Jay’s must-have product for red carpet hair.
