Sunday night saw the BAFTA TV Awards take place at London’s Royal Festival Hall, with stars of the small screen honoured for their achievements of the last twelve months.

Official hair partner Schwarzkopf Professional provided the backstage glam, with a team led by Philipp Haug of Haug London Haus, who created a mix of classic and contemporary looks for some of the night’s most photographed celebrities.

This year’s BAFTA TV Awards saw Philipp lead a team of Schwarzkopf Professional hair experts including Adrian Paoluccio, Christopher Laird, Dan Joy, Darcey Clarke, Dora Lioli, Julian Marques, Marzen Cielen and Vishali Visavadia, each of them renowned for their passion, artistry and technical skill.

With stars including Daisy May Cooper, Chloe Lloyd and Ellie Taylor visiting the Style Suites, Philipp talked us through the trending looks of the evening:

For Ellie, we wanted to create an updo that felt sexy and youthful – and no one did that better than Brigitte Bardot! It’s important that the hair doesn’t look overly contrived, so we prepped with Schwarzkopf Professional SESSION LABEL THE MOUSSE to build volume and control, and used just a large round brush to add height at the crown. We then created a soft bun, pinning hair high on the head, before using a tailcomb and SESSION LABEL THE FLEXIBLE to create a more undone result. The front sections were tonged and finished with SESSION LABEL THE SERUM for subtle shine and control.

Daisy is wearing her hair super-long right now, so we wanted to showcase that by adding a glamorous cascading curl and soft texture to frame her face. The hair was prepped with Schwarzkopf Professional SESSION LABEL THE MIRACLE and styled with a large tong, wrapping hair from the mid-lengths down and allowing to cool before gently combing through. We also tonged Daisy’s curtain bangs for a playful, flicked effect, before using SESSION LABEL THE FLEXIBLE all over the hair to finish for long-lasting hold without stiffness.

The inspiration for this look was Cindy Crawford and the supermodels of the early 90s. We wanted volume and movement through the style, so prepped with Schwarzkopf Professional SESSION LABEL THE MOUSSE, a classic styling product which adds ‘guts’ and body, making the hair easy to manipulate. The hair was set on large, heated rollers and, once cooled, we dressed it out with a large paddle brush, using the hands to coax the hair into place. For the quiffed fringe, we lifted the hair off the face with a vent brush, fixing it in place with SESSION LABEL THE FLEXIBLE to finish.

Done well, a classic ponytail can look so elegant and is a perfect choice for a red-carpet event.  We prepped Laura’s hair with Schwarzkopf Professional SESSION LABEL THE THICKENER, which adds grip and body, so it’s ideal as a base for updos. The clean centre parting feels ultra-modern, and we added volume through the crown with some gentle backcombing – we were aiming for a subtle lift rather than too much height, which can look dated. We secured the pony just above the nape, wrapping with a loose section of hair for an elevated finish (and helping ensure that Laura’s dazzling sequin dress wasn’t overshadowed by an accessory). Then, just a touch of SESSION LABEL THE TEXTURIZER was added to the lengths to create a contemporary ‘undone’ texture.
