4 days to go!!!

Hello! readers


Bafta week is finally here!!!


There are only 4 days to go so myself and the Charles Worthington Art Team have been cramming in more practice by taking inspiration from the 1950s, as well as experimenting with different textures.


From defined vintage waves, to crimped 80’s textures we had great fun at our weekly session creating a variety of shapes on models hair.



Our last session is taking place this week where we will look to the 1960’s big bold beehives for inspiration. It will be our last chance to warm up our styling skills ready for the weekend.


It’s also operation ‘kit bags’ this week. As we prepare to set up home for 2 days inside the grand ‘Savoy Hotel’ in the Bafta Styling suites, you can only imagine the amount of kit we need to transport; from hairpins to rollers, the kit list is extensive.  For 9 stylists styling hair for 2 days we need to think of every possible hair eventuality.  The product and equipment has been ordered and on Friday morning I will unpack everything ready to go for Saturday morning.

With the awards season well under way, I was desperate to get to the cinema this week to get to grips with the nominations. I managed to see Wolf of Wall Street, American Hustle, and 12 Years a Slave, which are all very different but I loved them all!  The styling in particular in ‘American Hustle’ was superb.  In particular I loved the Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams glamorous hair styles. The 70s take on hair was spot on.



For me this look is super chic of the era, but completely wearable today.  This look can be achieved easily with a good set of heated rollers and the Charles Worthington Volume and Bounce collection, in particular the new 3D Crème. This look can be achieved in a few simply easy steps:


Step 1

Wash and condition the hair using Charles Worthington Volume and Bounce shampoo and Amplifying Volume Treatment.


Step 2

Apply the NEW 3D Crème & rough dry hair, smoothing gently with a paddle brush.


Step 3

Draw a centre parting and use heated rollers rolling right to the root and using the smaller ones around the face and the larger rollers at the back.  Apply hairspray to each section of hair before rolling up.


Step 4

Once completely cooled, remove the rollers and brush through, away from the face.   Tilt your head back and spray hair spray from a small distance to the top and underneath.  Bring the head back to vertical and tease the curls to fall away from the face by lightly brushing back towards the ears.


We cant’ ignore the fact New York Fashion week is well underway, and London Fashion Week is just around the corner.  I’ve been keeping an eye on the shows and pulled out my favourite looks so far from New York.  For me, the hair and clothes need to work together to tell a story.  These are my favourite looks from the last few days – they have the simple, clean, and easy to recreate wearable factor.

The slicked back buns from Diane Von Furstenburg, & The tucked under bobs and messy centre parts from Victoria Beckham.



In the final days of BAFTA build up this week I am styling a British soul singer for a shoot and also styling the hair of a very famous ‘Bond Girl’ for an event this coming Thursday.


Check out my blog next week for all the backstage gossip and to find out whose hair we styled for the red carpet.
