The BRIT Awards 2014

Christian Wiles Hairdressing reflect on The Brit Awards 2014


The Brits, staged at London’s O2 Arena and hosted by James Corden, celebrated the best in British and International music, with artists from across the globe gathering for Wednesday’s award show. The BRIT Awards hairstyles always make for compulsive viewing – here’s our pick of the most fashion forward looks to hit the red carpet this year;

Lily Allen looks amazing with a yellow dip-dye power pony maybe slightly influenced by friend Kate Moss after her recent Alexander McQueen campaign. Neon Jungle rocked the red carpet with a collection of over sized Afro’s and half shaved heads and of course it wouldn’t be 2014 without grunge-mermaid hair would it? For the Curls we would recommend Matrix Biolage Hydrasource shampoo and conditioner this will give the hair the moisture it needs. We pride ourselves in having some of the best hairdressers in Northampton on our team, and our hair colour experts highly recommend Biolage Colorlast shampoo and conditioner which will help protect and keep you colour fresh.

Rita Ora looked flawless with beautiful, blonde curls and a deep side parting and gorgeous dark green Smokey eye’s that complimented her bright yellow dress. To get this look cleanse and condition with Matrix Biolage Colorlast shampoo & conditioner then blow dry the hair using Design pulse Go Big Mouse which will add volume and stability to the hair, or try our Express Blowout Service. Ella Eyre exploded onto the red carpet with a mass of Ombre curls creating a real showpiece … amazing! To get this look we recommend Matrix Total Results curl shampoo and conditioner this will give the curls definition and then mix both Design Pulse loosely defined and Go big mousse this cocktail will add definition and volume to the hair.



Foxy Foxes had one of the best looks of the evening with a striking full fringe and ombre colour we love it!! To achieve this look cleanse and condition with Matrix Biolage Smoothproof shampoo and conditioner this will reduce any frizz in the hair then continue to blowdry the hair with a flat paddle brush using Matrix Design Pulse Thermo Glide this helps speed up drying time, locks in Frizz Free hair and helps protect from high heat styling tools. Australian rap star Iggy Azalea underlined her status as an upcoming fashionista with this stunning 1920’s inspired up-do. To get this look cleanse and condition the hair using Matrix Biolage Volumebloom this will give volume to the hair prior to setting the hair work a mixture of Go Big Mousse and a small amount of Rock Solid hair gel and dry into the hair after shaping the hair into the desired wave, set the hair using Design Pulse Hair Lock hairspray, to add that extra shine use Design Pulse Surround Shine to finish.

It’s all about the Quiff as Boy George debuted his grey locks on the red carpet of the Brit Awards 2014 showing off his new stylish 50’s rockabilly quiff to get this look blowdry Design pulse loosely Defined into the hair then finish with some Hair lock Hairspray. This hairstyle can also be adapted to a slightly more textured interpretation of the quiff; take Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner as an example of how to rock this bold and dapper hairstyle to get this look dry the hair using Design pulse Rock Solid then rework the hair with Rock Solid using the wide part of your comb. We all hail Nick Grimshaw as the king of the modern day quiff. The Radio One DJ has made this his trademark look; worn with the right attitude and infused with an up-to-date quality this style can appear both dashing and modern Blow-dry Design Pulse Loosely Defined into the hair creating volume then to define the hair work Design Pulse Beach Clay mixed with a sprinkling of Design Pulse Mega Dust this will help hold the quiff. One Directions’ Harry Styles seemed to have moved away from the swept forward boyish fringe to embrace this slick stylish quiffed look to get this look work Design Pulse Shape Scene throughout damp hair and sculpt into the desired Style.
