One thing that tied most of the competing TV stars at the recently held British soap awards was their hair updo. Many sported a chignon – some high, some at the nape and some went retro, with a beehive bun.
60s hairstyle : Susanne Shaw
Susanne Shaw, who plays the role of Eve Jenson in the television series ‘Emmerdale’ was seen enjoying herself at the recent British Soap Awards 2011 at Granada Studios, Manchester. Sporting a very 60’s look, Suzanne wore a black and white cocktail mini dress from Forever Unique. Her light blonde hair was tied up in a not so tall beehive style, again reminiscent of the 60s. Gathered around the bun was a black hair band, with a diamante floral brooch. A lock of hair carelessly was left loose to cover a part of Suzanne’s forehead falling down in a small curl.
Beehive hairstyle : Carley Stenson
Carley Stenson, who enjoys the reputation of being the longest serving cast member on the show ’Hollyoaks’ wore a Lipsy lilac halter neck, side cut out gown. Carley had her blonde brown hair tied up to a loose and messy beehive, with the front bangs covering her forehead. The top bun added height to her already tall frame.
Messy bun : Brooke Vincent
Brooke Vincent, TV actress from the Corrie show, wore a Lipsy asymmetrical lime green, sleeve less dress with silver heels. Brooke teamed the look with a bindi. She tied up her hair in a brown hair in a messy top bun. Young Brooke looked every inch an adult with her hairstyle and the dress.
Top bun : Claire Cooper
Claire Cooper who plays the troubled Jacqui in the soap “Hollyoaks” was wearing a top bun , though not as high as others. Claire was wearing a chic sleeveless, plunging V neckline, white knee length dress, with a thigh high slit in the middle. Claire’s nude lips with smoky eyes looked great and her top bun hairstyle made her look every inch a style diva. Her not matching her outfit with any jewellery at all was a great style statement too.
Updo hairstyle : Gemma Merna
Gemma Merna, better known as her Hollyoaks character ‘Carmel Valentine’ wore a long sleeved blood red gown, cinched at the waist. She pulled back her hair into a not so tall bun, with the front hair parted in the middle and falling on to each side. Her soft curls were showing through the loosely made bun. Gemma’s light makeup and hairstyle saved the day for her as the dress was a little over the top.
Chignon : Bianca Hendrickse
Bianca Hendrickse Spendlove who plays Texas Longford in Hollyoaks looked pristine in a white halter neck long dress. Bianca’s hair was in small soft curls, which were tied into a low, loose chignon. Some loose hair was blowing across her beautiful face. Bianca’s curls looked great and added to the charm of her overall get-up.
Looks like buns of all forms are surely ruling the red carpet these summers!
