ghd X Critics' Choice Awards

You are here

Another week and another awards ceremony for the ghd team. This time it was stylists Frederic Aspiras and Derek Yuen who worked their magic at the 24th Critics' Choice Awards.

Constance Wu - Hair by celebrity hairstylist, Derek Yuen

We wanted the hair to have a feeling of ease and movement to it to complement Constance’s Rodarte gown, so we created a smooth blowout with beveled ends, with the fringe being a focal point. - Derek Yuen

Tips and Techniques:
  1. Starting with wet hair, blow-dry with the ghd air hairdryer (£99) and ghd natural bristle radial brush in size 1 (£20) to create a smooth, straight look.
  2. Using the ghd platinum+ styler (£175), gently bevel the ends and lock in smoothness and shine.
  3. To finish the style, create a little texture and piecey-ness to it using the styler again (Derek also trimmed Constance's fringe right around eyebrow length).
Lady Gaga - Hair by celebrity hairstylist, Frederic Aspiras

Gaga's look was inspired by old Hollywood beauty, specifically Hedy Lamarr. - Frederic Aspiras

Tips and Techniques:
  1. To start, blow-dry the hair with the ghd air hairdryer (£99) and ghd natural bristle radial brush in size 1 (£20), creating a deep side parting and a bouncy blowout.
  2. Next, curl the hair section by section using the ghd CURVE Classic Curl Wand (£120) and set in pin curls throughout the head.
  3. Once the curls have cooled and set, comb them out using with the ghd detangling comb (£6) and some sculpting cream, creating 'S' waves in front of the face.
  4. Lastly, brush out the curls in the back and sides using the ghd oval dressing brush (£20) and finish with hairspray.
