Ever wondered about which tools celebrity hairstylists use to create iconic looks for their A-lister clients? Well, we’ve got the inside goss for you…

Hollywood glam

Make like Emma Roberts at The Oscars and try your hand at some super-glam undone Hollywood waves. This timeless style, which has never gone out of style on the red carpet, is best for mid-length to long hair. The tool you need to achieve the look without the help of a celebrity hairstylist? Hot rollers. Simply leave them to set in your hair and cool off before removing, then brush the curls out to create perfect A-list-worthy waves.

The subtle crimp

There was once a time when the return of the crimpers sounded like one of our worst nightmares, but now the crimp (and most other 90s trends) has officially returned, and we just can’t get enough of it. This time, zigzag locks are back in a much more understated way, with the likes of Ariana Grande showing us exactly how it’s done. To achieve the look, select random sections of hair and style with a crimper before brushing out with a paddle brush and fixing with hairspray.


Poker straight

You heard it here first – super-sleek Cher hair is officially back and it’s taking the celebrity world by storm. Big, bouncy blow-dries are over, and simple long glossy locks are back in the spotlight. Go heavy with the straighteners (don’t forget to spritz hair with a layer of heat protection, first) and part your hair in the centre for all of the Kim K feels.


Beachy waves

The queen of beachy waves? It’s got to be one of our fave blondes, Fearne Cotton. If (like us) you’re not blessed with naturally tousled waves, you’ll be pleased to hear that you can recreate the look for yourself with just the help of a waving wand and some salt spray. Start by dividing hair into thick sections and wrapping it around the waving wand for 20 seconds. Once the whole head is finished, brush hair to create a just-off-the-beach vibe before spraying on sea salt spray for extra texture.


Curl up

She’s not just pop royalty – Ella Eyre is the queen of curls, too. And although her natural locks are perfectly curly, Ella spruces up her mane with the help of thick curling tongs. To get the look, divide hair into small sections, protect with heat spray and wrap around curling tongs from the root. It might be time-consuming, but the results are insane – and, with the help of a little hairspray, perfectly fixed in place to stay all day.


So, which celeb look do you want to achieve?
