Best hair looks at the British Fashion Awards

Unquestionably the standout hairdo at the recent British Fashion Awards held at London’s Royal Albert Hall belonged to American actress, Gabrielle Union, who sported the beehive to end all beehives.


This sculpted, towering and pouffed updo, had a smaller, twisted bun positioned at the apex of the beehive. It was created by celebrity hairstylist, Larry J. Sims.


Iconic pop princess, Kylie Minoque, opted for an un-characteristic shaggy style and fringe, reminiscent of the 1970s, in an almost strawberry blonde hue.


The current ‘It Girl’ of the British pop scene, Dua Lipa, had her raven coloured hair in soft, long natural waves, coming off a centre parting.


Mexican actress and singer, Eiza Gonzalez, probably had the most unusual hair look – a very 1920s-style diamond fringe headpiece worn over her loose brown curls.


British pop star, Lilly Allen, wore short blunt bangs (not a look that many can carry off but which Allen did with aplomb) to complement a high, messy ponytail. Fellow Brit, actress Kate Beckinsale, also had a high ponytail, but slicked back and minus the bangs.


Priyanka Chopra-Jonas opted for a top-knot with a parted long fringe framing her face.

Jamaican-Canadian supermodel, Winnie Harlow, wowed with an all-out red carpet look – long curls swept off her face and cascading down her back, with baby-curls sculpted on each side of her forehead.


Fellow supermodel, Brazilian Adriana Lima, went for old-style Hollywood glam, with Veronica Lake-type, side-parted, 1940s waves emanating from a deep side-parting.


American social media star, dancer and singer, Addison Rae, rocked a very sleek and straight half updo, while British actress, Simone Ashley, must have had the longest hairdo on the red carpet – her tightly waved black hair reached to the tops of her thighs.


You can always count on the evergreen Demi Moore to stick to the classic ‘Demi Moore hairstyle’ and sure enough, the actress sported her usual long, straight and centre-parted black hair.


Also staying true to type, British fashion designer, model, television personality and writer, Alexa Chung, wore the mid-length, shaggy bob that she generally favours. (Report by Joanna Sterkowicz)
