Our 5 Favorite Red Carpet-Inspired Hairstyles

1. Disco Curls

Center-parted, voluminous curls definitely make a big statement. This seventies-inspired red carpet hairstyle can work for wavy and curly hair. Pair with smoky eyes, nude lips and hoop earrings to complete the look.

For naturally curly hair, start by washing hair with Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Shampoo and Conditioner. Massage a small amount of styling cream through damp hair, then blow dry hair with a diffuser for big volume.

For straighter hair types, section hair and curl with a ½” curling wand. Since this look is all about having lots of curls and volume, make sure your sections are less than one inch wide. Allow curls to cool, then brush with a boar bristle brush.

2. Messy Dutch Braids

Fishtail braids add a modern twist to this romantic party hairstyle. Start by adding waves to hair with a 1 ½” curling iron. Next, braid hair into two fishtail braids, fastening at the ends with a clear elastic hair tie. Use your fingers to gently pull apart the braids to add more volume. Wrap the braids over your crown and secure with bobby pins, then finish with hairspray.

3. Sleek & Slicked Back

We love this sleek and sophisticated red carpet hairstyle because it gives more emphasis to your face.

To style at home, start by washing hair with Viviscal Densifying Shampoo and Conditioner. Next, spray hair with texturizing spray from roots to tips. Use a boar bristle brush to blow dry hair straight up, which will give you more volume at the roots. Blow dry the sides and back of the hair until smooth.

Once hair is dry, tease at the top from the hairline to crown to add extra volume. Then, smooth hair backwards using a fine tooth comb. Mist with lots of extra-hold hairspray to finish.

To really recreate a red carpet look, pair this hairstyle with a bold eyeshadow shade like teal or purple.

4. Technicolor Top Knot

Looking for a bold party hairstyle? Look no further. This red carpet hairstyle uses temporary spray color to add a pop of color to your hair. We recommend matching your hair color to your dress for best results.

Start by brushing hair into a high ponytail and fasten with a hair tie. Next, twist the ponytail around its base to create a top knot. Use bobby pins to hold the top knot in place. Use hairspray to smooth flyaways. Then spray hair with temporary hair color. Remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect! This style looks great when it’s just a little messy.

5. High Double Ponytail

Create the look of a longer, more voluminous ponytail without hair extensions with this red carpet hairstyle.

Start by parting hair horizontally at the ear level so it’s divided into two halves. Then, pull the top section into a high ponytail and fasten with a hair tie. Take a small piece of hair from the ponytail, and wrap it around the base of the ponytail. Then secure with a bobby pin to hide the hair tie. Next, pull the bottom section into a ponytail directly below the top one and fasten it with a hair tie. Curl each ponytail with a 1” curling iron and then gently tease to add pretty volume and texture. Finish with hairspray.
