The super talented Ellie Goulding picked up a Brit award last week for Best British female solo artist in London. A massive congratulations!
The singer and songwriter recently topped the UK album charts with 2012 album Halycon an amazing 65 weeks after its release, making it the first No 1 album of 2014. What an amazing achievement!
Ellie was looking as gorgeous as ever on the red carpet at The Brits! I was over the moon to be asked to do Ellie’s hair extensions before she attended the awards! Ellie has been my client for some time now and she is a real fan on my brand Extension Professional. We have tried a few things over the time that I have been doing her hair, this time she wanted something a little special and I was more than happy to oblige. The brief Ellie gave me this time around was “I want mermaid hair” so my first thought was the little mermaid’s (Ariel) long flowing hair.
Ellie has got a lot of warmth running through the lower section of her natural hair so what I did was sources some warmer blonds on the Extension Professional Colour ring that would complement her hair’s natural tones. I used a slightly more ashy blonde on the upper part of the head mixed with another blonde as this works well with her naturally warm tone. We kept her extensions a little longer than usual, but this was something special after all!
The overall finished look was long, flowing hair that you would never think are extensions. If you caught her performing at the awards you will have seen that she gave the extensions a real workout head banging her way through “burn”!
Ellie also showed off her hair in Milan on Saturday with my other client, actress Samantha Barks. I can’t describe what an amazing feeling it was to see both my hair extension transformations sitting on the front row at the Roberto Cavalli show!
