Best Red-Carpet Hair Tips To Try Yourself

Achieving the perfect hairstyle is never an easy task. It will take you at least 20 minutes to get that irresistible sleek, shiny hair and more than half an hour to get voluminous, alluring curls. And let’s not forget how much time we have to steal from our daily schedule to get our hair into one amazing, not too tight, but also not too messy, ponytail. That is why it is no wonder that sometimes, especially early in the mornings, when we are already late for work, we simply put our hair in a basic bun.

In order to avoid this and to help you get a chic and trendy hairdo, whether you are going to work, for a casual brunch or even going to a special event, such as a prom, we bring you the best hair tips that will make you look like a real Hollywood star.

1. When In Doubt, Go For A Sleek Bob

If you want to have a hairstyle that is timeless and stylish, but is also easy for maintenance, you should go for a fashionable bob or lob. That, of course, includes a considerable chop to your hair, but you will see that taking a few inches off is going to pay off. You can go for a shorter version of this haircut like the Bohemian Rhapsody star, the stunning Lucy Boynton has opted for, and have your hair reach just in-between your chin and your jawbone.
 
On the other hand, you can opt for a longer bob, such as the one the gorgeous actress Natalie Portman rocks with style. Moreover, you may notice that a number of celebrities happily wear shorter or longer bobs and you can see that they look impeccable both in formal and casual outings. However, although a messy, choppy bob is incredibly trendy, a sleek hairstyle is certainly both classy and quite modern and thus, always a good choice.

All you need to achieve a sleek bob is to put some nourishing serum on your hair and blow-dry it straight. The next step is to use a heat protection spray and then straighten your hair section by section. Once you are finished, use a few spritzes of hairspray and your perfect hairstyle will last throughout the day.

2. The Secret Lies In The Hair Extensions

If you have watched at least one red carpet event, you must have noticed that many of the famous ladies opt to wear their hair in beautiful and striking ponytails or buns. But have you ever thought that the greater number of those exquisite hairstyles includes hair extensions? Most likely not, because the majority of the celebrities have their hair done so that it looks as if all of it were their own lavish hair. However, the secret is in luxurious long clip in hair extensions, which you can easily get for yourself and rock a spectacular ponytail or bun any day. Just make sure that your extensions match your hair color so that everything looks completely natural. Now you can grab a hair tie and a few pins and get your hair in an amazing up-do. To finish off the look, apply a bit of hair wax (not cream) to sleek any flyaways and to add some shine to the hair.

3. Flawless Waves And Hairspray

We can spend hours in front of the mirror trying to get those voluptuous and chic waves, and still not be happy with the final result. That can easily be changed and the key is in hairspray. As simple as it sounds, hairspray is your best friend when it comes to curling your hair. Celebrity hairstylists use hairspray before curling their clients’ hair in order for the hair to be more flexible and thus catch on better to the shape that the curling iron gives it. They part the hair into sections, spray each section and then curl them. You can repeat this process in your own bathroom and after you get those irresistible waves, you can spray your whole head once more with hairspray, in order for the hairstyle to last longer.

4. Use Mousse For An Impeccable Blow-out

If you want to have that splendid blow-out that you see a number of famous ladies rocking all the time, all you need is a bit of hair mousse. Whether you are preparing for a fabulous night out or you are simply drying your hair in the morning, make sure to apply some mousse on your damp hair and then continue with blow-drying it. The final result will be voluminous and gorgeous hair that will last throughout the whole day or night.
 
Finally, try some or all of the mentioned tips and don’t be afraid to look like a true Hollywood diva.
