Gorgeous gowns

Gorgeous gowns were jazzed up with chic hairdos at the 2013 critics’ choice awards, california. make-up pro Priscilla Corner decodes

naughty knot

Bye bye perfect bun, hello imperfect knot! While Amanda Seyfried secured it high up, Jennifer Lawrence went for a chic side version. Updos are great for chiselled cheekbones, not to forget those dramatic danglers.

Priscilla’s tip: “Prepare your hair by braiding it loosely. This will help increase the volume and keep it from looking severe. Your hair is now ready to be pinned.”

ride high on a pony

Is it a bouffant? Is it a pony tail? It’s a two-in-one! This up-tie is stylish and effortless for any glam event. Add volume to the flat pulled-back pony tail with some backcombing. We love how Eva Longoria and Nina Dobrev keep the locks off their face.

Priscilla’s tip: “If you’re aiming for playful sophistication, this look is the one for you. Start with a ponytail, take out a small section and twist it around the band. Don’t forget to spray the flyaways. It’s a great style if you have a layered haircut.”

good ol’ holly waves

Emily Blunt and Emmy Rossum have perfected the good ol’ Hollywood hairdo. We love those pin curls and these beauties have joined the glam-waves bandwagon so seamlessly. Retro, timeless and just so dramatic!

Priscilla’s tip: “Deep side-parted hair styled with a waver-styling tool ups the Hollywood glam quotient yet keeps the look very understated and sleek. The right amount of product use is crucial — too much shows you tried too hard and too little will see the waves come undone before you reach the party!”
