Celebrity Beauty: Beautiful Blow-dries
The beautiful blow dry is one hairstyle that fits almost every occasion. While it’s not a new trend, it’s a look that takes on many guises from Kate Middleton’s glossy curls to Kristen Stewart’s side-swept waves.
Take a look at ELLE’s top ten celebrity blow-dries for inspiration and find out how you can get amazing discounts on a professional blow dry yourself...
As the face of L’Oreal, Cheryl Cole always lives up to our expectations that she should have gorgeous hair. For a look like this you can rely on L'Oreal Elnett Heat Protect Spray Volume, £3.99, which will protect the hair and hold your style for three whole days.
Gwen Stefani’s MTV European Music Awards blow-dry had a bouncy, girl-next-door look about it. To get a this style at home, Luke Hersheson advises ‘get yourself a really good hairdryer. It will last you for years and will make your life a lot easier’.
Kristen Stewart may not be the first name that comes to mind when you think of a tamed, glossy blowdry (she usually sports slightly messier, natural waves) BUT for the LA premiere of Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2, Kristen opted for this side-swept, high-glamour style. We definitely approve!
As a Victoria’s Secret model with a much sought-after physique, it’s not often that we focus on Miranda Kerr’s hair. But we should. We love her sexy sultry blow dry.
With her perfect skin and perfect wardrobe, it’s no surprise that Olivia Palermo’s mid length tresses are also perfect. We love how her hair has been blow-dried straight through the lengths with a pretty BEND at the end. The perfect brush is key to this style – ELLE loves Denman Extra Large Ceramnic Barrel Hot Curling Brush, £10.99.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteleyy looked as ethereal as ever with her soft loose waves at her M&S lingerie launch earlier this year. Her hair stylist, George Northwood recommends ‘Kiehl’s Silk Groom Serum, £18, will moisturise, separate and add shine to the hair once it’s styled, plus it adds weight to pull the curl down slightly giving it that beachy look’.
