BAFTAs hair explained

The secret behind Anne Hathaway’s BAFTAs hairstyle has been revealed.

Last night, all the A-listers gathered at the Royal Opera House in London to celebrate the best films of the past year.

Whereas there were plenty of impressive gowns on display, it was the hairstyles that really stole the show at the event.

Les Misérables star Anne Hathaway walked away with the best supporting actress prize and looked fabulous with her cropped ‘do.

For her role in the musical movie the pretty brunette had to chop off her long locks, but the star proved she can rock any hairstyle.

Anne teamed her brushed-forward look with a black Burberry dress and multi award-winning hairdresser Darren Ambrose says the style is relatively easy to recreate.

“I’m loving Anne Hathaway’s short crop that has been textured and almost deconstructed,” he gushed.

“It’s very feminine and you’ll need regular trips to your stylist for this style. Block colour is essential and a craft clay (I like Wella’s) will keep it looking shiny and defined.”

Jessica Chastain may not have taken home the best actress gong for her role in Zero Dark Thirty last night, but the redhead definitely won in the beauty stakes.

The gorgeous star teamed flowing waves with her beautiful sapphire-coloured Roland Mouret gown.

“Jessica’s gorgeous red locks look stunning with her blue dress and porcelain skin,” praised Rae Palmer, Redken ambassador.

“I’d use Redken Shades EQ, a wonderful conditioning colour that gives translucent glossy colour, to recreate Jessica’s beautiful shade. To get the look, use Redken Guts volume spray foam and style using a wand – you can secure the side with a small hidden grip to keep it over one shoulder.”

Sarah Jessica Parker was on hand to present Daniel Day-Lewis with the best actor gong and did so in her usual, effortless style.

The Sex and the City star rocked a black Elie Saab jumpsuit with super-straight hair that was spiced up thanks to a subtle dip-dye.

“Poker straight locks are back, and SJP wears it beautifully – the ombre colour is gorgeous and what fabulous shine!” British Colourist of the Year Ken Picton gushed.

“To get the look, use an oil-based product such as Shu Uemura’s Essence Absolue, blow dry straight and then finish with irons; the new GHD irons are incredible and the perfect tool for this look. For an extra glam look, slip on an Effortless Extension – a hair piece on a wire that takes seconds to add in.”
