Most Wanted: Celebrity Hair

HOT OFF THE PRESS: The 90’s may have been all about the ‘Rachel’ but 2013 is all about the ‘Cheryl’ or the ‘Holly’ who have just been crowned as the new #1 hair icons. To get the low down on the looks we went straight to the people in the know - their personal hairstylists...by Georgina Hardiman

Cheryl Cole

Lisa Laudat - Hairstylist to Cheryl and L'Oréal Paris ambassador

Top Tip:

‘Invest in the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair type by looking for key words on the packaging, such as, fine, coloured or damaged.’

Lisa’s 5 steps to Cheryl’s look...

1 When blow-drying, tip your head upside down for volume

2 For lots of bounce, use round bristle brushes

3 Blow-dry in sections and pin each one with sectioning clips, set with hairspray

4 When you remove the pins, hair should fall into soft waves

5 For extra lift backcomb the roots and finish with more hairspray

Secret Weapon:

For her envious volume I use L'Oréal Paris Elnett Volume Heat Protect Spray on the roots, and brush through the ends.

Essential Kit...

For that gorgeous shine with minimal effort, it’s important to keep hair cuticles smooth as dark tones naturally reflect the light.

Ciler Peksah - Hairstylist to Holly and top stylist at Neville’s Hair & Beauty

Top Tip:

‘I always start with hair oil on the mid-lengths and ends to boost the condition of hair. To cheat thickness with loads of volume I love applying Shu Uemura’s Art of Hair Volume Maker to the roots before drying.’

Ciler’s 5 steps to Holly’s look...

1 Blow-dry the hair until it’s 100% dry

2 Put hot rollers in the front section to create root volume

3 Using a big barrel tong, curl random sections – never too perfect

4 For a soft style always run your hands through the curls once cool

5 Hairspray and go

Secret Weapon:

Shu Uemura Art of Hair Sheer Lacquer - spray on each individual curl to increase staying power.

Essential Kit...

In complete contrast, blonde hair naturally absorbs the light. So you need to keep yours squeaky clean for that polished, glamorous finish.
