Silhouette Celebrity Hair

Carrie Underwood in my opinion has the most gorgeous hair and I knew as soon as I seen the tweet by Immediate PR that if I got the chance to take part in their recreation challenge that one of her looks would be my inspiration. My favourite of her red carpet looks was at the Billboard Music Awards this year. 




I attempted to use the Silhouette Products*, along with my Babyliss curling wand, Tangle Teezer and comb, to achieve voluminous, curly, glossy hair just like Carrie Underwood's.







I started off by using the Silhouette Color Brilliance Mousse* when my hair was still a bit damp. This helped hold the curls in shape when I used the BaByliss curling wand and when I teased my hair at the crown, it held much better than my normal just washed hair.
My hair is as thick as Carrie Underwood's so I sectioned off my hair into three layers and curled my hair. Once all the hair was curled I teased the top section to add volume. To keep this in place I sprayed the Silhouette Color brilliance Hairspray* underneath and on top. I really like this hairspray as it smelt nice, didn't feel sticky at all and I could tease more without it feeling like my hair was going to break and fall out. 
As Carrie's hair isn't perfect curls I ran my fingers through to loosen the top layer before adding some more mousse and scrunching it up. This brought the curls up and out just like Carrie's hair at the Music Awards.
To finish the style I sprayed the hairspray all over to hold in place and then sprayed the Silhouette Color Brilliance Extreme Gloss Spray*. This helped add some shine to my hair. Although my hair isn't dull, it is hard for blonde hair to look shiny. This spray does quite a good job and I didn't feel like it made it look greasy at all.


From using the Silhouette Color Brilliance products for this look I'll definitely be replacing my current hairspray (£4.15, 300ml) with this one as it help my hair for hours and didn't feel crunchy at all, which I hate! I don't tend to be a mousse(£5.40, 200ml) girl but it was nice to try and didn't have a wet look so was quite easy to work with. The Gloss Spray(£4.20, 300ml) is a completely new product to me and I think I'll be tempted to spritz my hair before a night out for an extra bit of shine.

What do you think of my attempt? If you were to recreate a celeb's look which one would you choose? If you've entered the Silhouette comp feel free to leave your link below, I'd love to see everyones entry.

  6. Ooh, this is such a gorgeous look, thank you for the tutorial! :) I've heard a lot of good stuff about the Babyliss wand - do you know if it would work well with very thick hair?

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I've got thick hair and if I want loads of curls I do it in three layers. But it also works well for bigger curls just in the ends with only one layer. It might take a couple of goes to get the curls just how you want but I absolutely love my wand now :) x
