Logies Red Carpet Hairstyles

Hair Styling From The Logies

Sunday night saw TV’s finest shining on the Logies red carpet. With an army of stylists, hairdressers and make-up artists working behind the scenes, the event showed that once again, Australia is at the forefront of fashion and beauty trends.

Remington took a look at the hairstyles that made the cut – and decided that there were clear directions for dressed-up hair in the coming season.

1. If it’s up, it’s loose and unstructured.
Not too many up-do’s made their way down the carpet. Standouts though were Jennifer Hawkins and Sonia Kruger, both of whom wore their hair loosely piled up with a slightly rougher, textured finish.

Styling tip

The starting point for an up-do is always volume. Use heated rollers, like Remington’s Body Waves (RRP $53.95) to build some body into the hair prior to styling. Body Waves have a wax core which retain heat – simply put them into dry hair after showering, and leave them until they cool. Meanwhile, you have time to squeeze yourself into your Alex Perry gown and do your make-up prior to styling your hair.

2. If it curls, the curl stays loose

Perfectly modelled by international guest, Jessica Alba, the latest curl is a tumbling wave rather than a corkscrew. Local celebs who did it well include Lisa McCune’s more casual style and by Ada Nicodemou in a more formal do.

Styling tip

The bigger the barrel, the looser the curl. Make curling easy with a wide-barrelled curling tong like Remington’s Curls Curls Curls (RRP $43.95), which offers three different-sized barrel options, including the huge 50mm tong.  With a Ceramic and Teflon surface this tong protects against hair damage, and is easy to use with a swivel cord and high heat, to 180 degrees.

3. If it’s straight, let the ends flick out

TV royalty Kerri-Anne Kennerley and comedienne, Jane Kennedy both showed how straightened hair works best right now with a light flick to the ends. Poker straight hair has its place, but looks so much dressier with this fresh new twist.

Styling tip

Straighten hair after shampooing with the Remington Wet2Straight Slim Straightener ($103.95). Then you can use the straightener to flick the ends out, or if you find that technique too hard to manage, try a small tong, like Remington’s Curl It (RRP $22.95)
