Nothing quite brings the glitz and glamour like Strictly and we’ve got all the insider tips and tricks to share, courtesy of celebrity hairdresser Georgia Woodland who’s been on set styling the show’s biggest stars.

Using Kent Salon Brushes, Georgia helped create some of this series’ most show stopping styles and here she shares her favourites, perfect for getting your clients ready for party season!

 Janette’s glamorous up-do

This stunning combination of a sleek bun teamed with face-framing waves is a modern classic – the loose hair helps soften the effect and is ideal if your client doesn’t like the severity of all the hair worn off the face.

  • Using the Kent Salon KS09 brush, brush the hair through and blast with a dryer and a light spray wax
  • With the Kent Salon KS04 brush, brush the hair into a tight ponytail, leaving a diagonal fringe section out and then twist the ponytail into a loose knot, securing well with grips.
  • Finally, apply a little gel and use the Kent  KSC01 comb to create fine hairline edges

 Janette’s quiffed pony

Adding a soft quiff at the front lends a playful vibe to this style. Spend time prepping the hair for the most glamorous – and long-lasting – finish. 

  • Blow-dry hair smooth using Unite Boosta Spray and the Kent Salon KS11 brush
  • Switch to the Kent Salon KS04 brush, sweeping hair up into a ponytail high on the crown, leaving a triangle section out on the front
  • Backcomb the loose section gently and shape into a subtle quiff before pinning back into the ponytail.
  • Tong the ponytail section to add gentle waves before combing through and using a texture spray to soften the curls

 Rose’s retro pony 

Take a high ponytail up a notch with a retro flicked finish. Using a matching hair piece at the base of the pony ups the glamour, making it a perfect party style for clients looking for something chic yet simple

  • Start by using the Kent Salon KS11 brush to smooth the hair
  • Brush up into a high ponytail, using a generous amount of spray wax to tame any strays. Wrap a hair piece in a matching shade around the base of the ponytail, pinning well to secure
  • Use the Kent SalonKS14 brush and the heat of your hairdryer to wrap and flick the hair for the cute 60s finish.

Dianne’s high bun

This glam look is ideal for client with fringes or curtain bangs. Increase the wow factor by adding a statement accessory – a sparkling slide would look striking secured just above the nape.

  • First, smooth out the hair using the Kent Salon KS10 brush to create volume while blow-drying
  • Sweep hair up into a high ponytail using the Kent Salon KS03, then blast with Unite Texturiza spray. Loosely wrap the hair and secure with grips before gently pulling sections out to create a softer looking shape
  • To finish, smooth out the fringe and add a little roundness with the Kent Salon KS12 brush
