Trending hairdos at the BAFTAS

Arguably the most striking hairstyle at the recent BAFTAS (British Academy of Film & Television Awards) in London was seen on best actress nominee, Saoirse Ronan.

The ‘Little Women’ star had an unusually placed top knot twisted into a faux-fringe that fell on one side of her forehead, a look at some top overseas stylists have described as a modern day version of a 1950s ‘rockabilly quiff’.

In stark contrast, with a very natural look, Naomie Harris stunned with a charming abundance of long, loose and untamed curls.

Ronan’s ‘Little Women’ co-star and fellow nominee, Florence Pugh, sported a ‘wet look’ updo, that featured a number of intriguing twists at the back.

The Duchess of Cambridge (aka Kate Middleton), long famous for her fabulous head of hair, looked suitably regal in a classically glamorous chignon that was constructed with subtle twists and turns.

Rooney Mara, known for her edgy and stark style, had her hair scraped back into a twisted top knot and accessorised with a big black bow.

Naomi Ackie made a statement with her immensely long, thick and gently twisted Rapunzel-type braid, which was slung over one shoulder.

South Africa’s Charlize Theron opted for a gently waved, side-swept, just-below-the-ear bob with uneven edges that was somewhat reminiscent of the screen goddesses of 1930s Hollywood.

Zazie Beetz stunned with her Bohemian box braids, while Rebel Wilson’s long blonde hair looked very old school Hollywood glam, in loose waves and side swept fringe.

Gillian Anderson rocked a very loose, strawberry blonde updo, while BAFTA winner for ‘A Marriage Story’, Laura Dern, sported a deliberately messy pony tail with long wispy ‘sideburns’.
