Euphoria’s Hair Looks Are Just as Good as the Make-Up, Ok?
Everyone has been raving about the make-up looks from HBO Gen-Z drama Euphoria, but can we take a minute to appreciate the achingly hip hair styles too please?
We run down our favourite Euphoria hair styles, and get experts to weigh in on how to create the looks. If you’ve got Gen Z clients, you better believe they’ll want to re-create some of the below.
Jules’ Baby Pink Dip Dye
Jules Vaughn, played by model Hunter Schafer, loves to experiment with her hair colour and with her cool, icy base the colour world is her oyster. Our favourite Jules ‘do has to be the bubblegum pink dip dye which looks less teenage DIY job, more expertly blended ombre. Well done Jules!
“Jules’ bubble gum pink dip dye presents another reincarnation of the pastel trend, but with an edgy grungy vibe,” explains Jason Hogan, celebrity and expert colourist at Josh Wood Atelier. “The hair has first has been lifted to a very pale blonde to achieve the shade. You can personalise the look with intensities of the pink, going for something much softer and more ethereal or more vibrant and punchy. For clients with a darker base or those that prefer a deeper blonde on themselves but still want to flirt with this trend, why not suggest they invest in some clip in hair pieces? You can dip dye them expertly and then they can keep their hair looking ‘business’ during the week and have a fun, flirty look for the weekend too.”
Kat’s ‘Sexy’ Makeover Bob
When Kat goes from insecure teen to ‘kitty kween’ (if you know, you know!) her hairstyle changes too. Gone is the choppy bob and in its place is a sleek side-parted, super shiny style. Gen Z love a makeover hairstyle and this cut is a great way to update your client’s look if they want a more grown-up look.
“This bob works for Kat’s face shape perfectly,” says Carly Price, partner stylist at Muse of London. “The bob is a very strong hairstyle and Kat has the perfect bob style, it’s got plenty of movement so is flattering on all face shapes. The deep side parting can easily be achieved by using a comb to create a straight line and flipping your clients parting to the other side, which also gives volume. Taking inspiration from Kim Kardashian’s glass hair, sleek and shiny hair works perfectly with this bob style and the perfect way to get this look is to firstly blow-dry the hair to achieve a smooth finish then finish with an oil or serum like TIGI Control Freak Frizz Control and Straightening Serum to give ultra-shine for that just off the catwalk finish.”
Maddy’s 1990s Ponytail
Not one to play it safe, one of our favourite extra Maddy looks is this glam, wavy 1990s updo complete with beaded veil accessory (good girl). A little bit Ariana Grande and a lot Cher, the look is perfect for upcoming party season. It’s what the kids want.
“The 1990s are back with a vengeance in the fashion world and of course that includes the decade’s famous hairstyles. Think Spice Girls, but with a modern edge,” explains James Campbell, creative director Hensmans, Northampton and ghd brand warrior. “This look is the perfect mix of 1990s cool and undone glam, start by creating a midi ponytail leaving out the front two sections, using the ghd curve creative curl wand twist warp sections of the hair creating waves, using ghd curl hold spray to give waves definition and hold. Create twists in the pony tail to add extra texture. Finish with ghd final fix hair spray.”
