It’s awards season (in case you couldn’t tell) so the trends are coming directly from the red carpet this time of year, inspiring your clients to make a colour change, wear a new style or just be a little bolder in their hair considerations.

With that in mind, let’s head straight to last night’s Brit Awards, celebrating the best of England’s music industry, and casting a light on their best hair and beauty looks. Here’s a selection of the biggest hair looks of the night.

Little Mix

We feel we’d be burying the lede if we didn’t start off by mentioning that every single member of Little Mix, that’s Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Ann Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall, all went suddenly platinum blonde for their performance. We say suddenly, because they wore their natural hues on the evening’s previous red carpet, and following the performance to accept an award. That’s some impressive display of (we assume) wiggery and a great example of what we’re calling squad hair goals – we’ve never seen a better promotion for salon referrals playing out right on stage.

The band performed their hit breakup single ‘Shout Out To My Ex’, drawing the parallel between break ups and dramatic hair changes with the drastic colour transformations. This isn’t the first time the band has connected hair and heartache, see their aptly titled Hair song for proof.

Katy Perry

Always keeping it interesting on the red carpet, Katy Perry wore a style on the edgy end of glamour, showing off what seemed like just a top knot from the front, but was actually an array of small buns down the back of her head. After debuting her new blonde tone just this month – Katy again delivers on a style to inspire your clients.

Grace Chatto

If you’re not familiar with Grace Chatto, member of UK electronic music group Clean Bandit, let us get you acquainted, not for her music, but for her chameleon-level hair colours, which have run the gamut from pink, to purple, and now this grey-tinged mint green – going into Autumn, this pastel hue could be the perfect new tone in your salon.
