Playful. Fearless. Bold. When it comes to the beauty trends this awards season so far, the next generation of starlets hates to play it safe.
When styling teenagers for the red carpet, Stevie Lyons, Seven Master Stylist, reminds us it’s important to let kids be kids—even when they are glammed up. “Soften looks by going half up/half down, or add a bit of pompadour to pony tails,” she says. To recreate Millie Bobby Brown’s age-appropriate buns from the SAG Awards red carpet, Lyons would prep the hair with Seven haircare’s Seal & Boost for a perfect foundation and blow it out with a round brush. Once dry, section off the hair and spray Heat Defense before curling to protect hair and give hold and style memory. Alternate the curl pattern every other curl and leave the ends out for a loose wave. From the temples up, section the crown into two sections to create your buns. Finish with Working spray for touchable hold.
We’re seeing curly-haired celebs rock their natural texture more than ever—and we’re loving it. “Waves and curls on the red carpet are important so that girls and women are encouraged to embrace their natural hair,” says Inocencia Manoel, founder of Inoar. To recreate Yara Shahidi’s classic, elegant style from the SAG Awards, Manoel would wash hair, removing excess water with a cotton towel. Divide hair down the middle with a fine comb for better precision and definition. Next, divide the hair into strips—a technique to help define the curls and reduce frizz—and rake through with fingers, beginning from the root until the ends. Mixing the Divine Curls Finishing Gel with the Inoar Argan Oil for added hold into hands, scrunch the strands from the ends to the roots. Diffuse to dry.
