Awards season is in full swing and while it’s great to see who picks up which gongs we are definitely more excited about the hairstyles that grace the red carpet. The Screen Actors Guild Awards 2019 last night truly served up some excellent styling so here are our absolute faves.

Emily Blunt

Emily Blunt’s outstanding dress spoke for itself and Emily’s low bun with stunning hair piece was just perfect to finish her look. Firstly, to create that mirror like shine I used Joico K-Pak Color Therapy Luster Lock Mask to repair dry or damaged ends and leave hair glowing. I then blow dried her hair from wet using a soft brush to get the hair as straight and as shiny as possible.

A centre parting was then put in place and I began to pull her super sleek straight hair into a pony tail as the very nape of the neck before securing with a hair tie. Once I was happy with the placement of this, I used JOICO Beach Shake to add some wave and give the look a little definition whilst minimising fly-aways.

Then begin to gently roll the ponytail into the nape of the neck making sure to keep it neat and fix in place using a barrette – for Emily we opted for a jewelled accessory for an added air of glamour. You can also use hair pins to secure this if needed but ensure they are similar in colour to the hair and do your best to disguise them entirely. To complete the look, I used Joico Beach Shake to give a high gloss edge. – Celebrity stylist, Laini Reeves (who created the look)

Margot Robbie

Margot Robbie’s hair at the 2019 SAG Awards was understated and elegant which is a look that I love! Her hair has been cut just below shoulder length and I think this suits her perfectly, allowing her gorgeous face to remain the focus and frame her stunning profile.

The simple, clean middle parting is such a strong look and definitely a style that I encourage my clients to try out as it works for a variety of different face shapes. Her hair was simply styled into soft tousled waves with really blunt, fresh ends which is a contrast I adore.

To achieve this subtle texture and movement I would recommend straightening irons to gently encourage natural looking kinks through the hair and finish using Aveda’s Texture Tonic. This incredible product combines sugar and salt to give flexible hold and keep that touchable finish making it ideal for looks like this.  –Krysia Eddery, owner of Perfectly Posh Hair Design 

Lucy Bonyton

It was so refreshing to see something slightly different on the red carpet at the 2019 SAG Awards from the stunning Lucy Boynton.

Firstly, this length of hair cut just in line with the jaw is so on trend at the moment and a look that I am personally loving – it is a style I often recommend to clients that are looking for something with a bit of an edge. The undone texture this look exudes makes it look effortless and natural too which I love. If you are lucky enough you may be able to embrace the natural texture of your hair for this although if not, I would recommend using a narrow straightening iron and gently adding in kinks and bends where suitable. Don’t be neat with this as you want the look to appear messy.

Once you are happy with the lengths of the hair, create a middle parting and pull two sections of hair from the front towards the crown before securing with hair pins. Use your fingers to tease the hair gently and add a ribbon or hair accessory of your choice for a luxe finish. – Philip Bell, artistic director at Ishoka Hair and Beauty

Mandy Moore

Mandy Moore’s sleek, low ponytail at last night’s SAG awards was simply stunning and looked effortlessly chic. It’s all about positioning when creating a low ponytail and ensuring the pony is secured low at the nape of the clients neck is key.

When I’m creating a sleek ponytail I also always use a hair gel or serum to slick the hair back going into the ponytail, which gives the hairstyle an almost ‘wet’ finish. For this look it’s also a great idea to change your clients parting to a side parting like Mandy has, which will give the look more of a statement.

I love how Mandy has hair from her pony around her hair tie that secures the ponytail together, this gives the overall look a more glamorous finish and the ponytail a more sophisticated look.

To finish I always would recommend using a hairspray that gives the hair shine as well as hold to give the hair even more mirror-like shine, as well as adding a hair accessory such as a bejewelled hair pin to add more sparkle for the perfect red carpet look. – Karen Thomson, owner of KAM Hair and Body Spa and Scottish Hairdresser of the Year

Amy Adams

You can’t go wrong with a bun hairstyle – it’s easy to create and looks incredibly elegant. For Amy’s look, the bun was placed high up on her head and for this to be achieved, I always advise using a dry shampoo in the hair before styling it into a bun in order to give the hair hold and grip.

Although Amy’s bun is high and scraped back off her face it also looks very soft, therefore, it’s key to not think too much about being too neat and precise when creating the bun. Paired with statement earrings, this look is a classic and beautiful red carpet look. – Dylan Brittain, owner of Rainbow Room International’s George Square Salon and Schwarzkopf UK ambassador
