HAIR’S REPORT BACK: THE FASHION AWARDS by JAY BIRMINGHAM

by Hair Magazine

The biggest night of the year in fashion, the British Fashion Awards took place on Monday 29th November. Hosted by Billy Porter and presented in partnership with TikTok, the Fashion Awards showcased some of the best red carpet looks from this year so far. It was an honour to work with my gorgeous celebrity clients to style their hair for this outstanding event. This year I worked with Rochelle Humes and Munroe Bergdorf.
For Rochelle’s look I wanted to keep it contemporary, effortless and create that cool girl chic. This style was the perfect partner for her tulle skirt and corset outfit. Her overall look was completely on trend with the addition of the accessory of the moment – extended gloves. Her hair matched this energy with the super soft wave with one side of her hair placed carefully over her shoulder. To create the volume, I used my go to Beautyworks Clip In extensions. For red carpet events, these extensions are your best friend to give the hair a fuller look. To prepare Rochelle’s hair and control the texture and reduce flyaways I applied the Color Wow Dream Coat which glosses the hair beautifully. To finish the look and ensure her hair glistened under the flash of the paparazzi I used the Living Proof Shine Spray. This is my top tip for finishing red carpet or special occasion hair as it gives the hair that expensive look.


For Munroe’s style I needed to create something truly show stopping. Her look for the British Fashion Awards was outlandish, bold and beautiful. Whilst I kept her hair simple and elegant, the XXL hair pieces elevated her look. I applied the Beautyworks Clip In Extensions in 26 inch length. The colour I used was jet black 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. I prepared her hair with the Color Wow Dream Coat like with Rochelles. I swear by this product as it works to gloss the hair, smooth the cuticles and improve texture. For a sleek look like this it is perfect. I finished with the Color Wow Mistical Shine Spray and smoothed this into the hair using my hand as the product was applied. It also allowed me to manipulate her hair down the centre of her back as it sat over her shoulders.
