Wish you could do more with your hair? Follow Amanda Holden and choose a shoulder-skimming style that’s long enough for updos but short enough to wave into retro curls too. It’s like a blank canvas ready and waiting for you to get creative!
To celebrate the return of Britain’s Got Talent, Amanda Holden stepped out with a new dark brunette hue with caramel sections through the front and underneath sections. New year, new series, new look!
Amanda smoothes her hair and tucks the ends under to create a natural look that’s sleek but still has volume and movement. Use a slim round brush to curl your hair under for a professional finish.
Leaving her fringe whispy, Amanda’s bodified updo shows off her chiselled cheekbones. Backcomb your hair first to mimic her mega volume!
Mastering the bun without it looking too severe, the key to this style is where you choose to place your bun. Amanda opts for the nape of her neck, securing it on the side that her parting sits to ensure you can still see it peeking out from behind.
We love this curly updo. Great for hiding a multitude of sins – especially if your hair’s fallen flat, curl it first then pull it back into a mid-height ponytail. Slick down the sides and leave the hair on top tousled to add extra height and slim your face.
Amanda gives her hair more volume by swapping her parting from one side to the other. Pin back the top sections then flick the ends out with a barrel brush as your blow-dry for more bounce.
To make the most of her layers, Amanda flicks them out Farrah Fawcett stylee! Cheat your way to the finished look by using straighteners to create the kicked out ends.
For an understated look, Amanda chooses to wear her fringe down and centred. Use a serum to prevent any flyaways or frizz and keep everything in place with a light mist of hairspray.
It’s not often we see Amanda waver from her polished look but here she chooses to play with texture for a shaggy layered look. Do the same by rough drying your hair with your fingers.
Faux bobs are still a big trend and Amanda’s glossy waves create the perfect illusion. Use a specially designed heated tool like Babyliss’ Wave Envy, £49.99, Boots, to help get Hollywood kinks.
Amanda’s centre parting shows off her relaxed waves. Use a large barreled tong to curl the mid-lengths and ends, leaving the roots straight and set everything in place with hairspray.
