One of the biggest events in the Scottish calendar, the Scottish BAFTAs, took place on Sunday 4th November at a glamorous red carpet ceremony at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Glasgow. Hosted by radio presenter and TV personality, Edith Bowman, the awards celebrated the very best in film, television and gaming over the last year in Scotland.
On hand to style the celebrities was the award-winning Scottish salon group, Rainbow Room International. The hair team consisted of Dylan Brittain, Yasmin McMail, Harry Keilty, Jade Roderickson, Diana Carson, Megan Deigan, Misha McLean and Courtney Murray. Backstage, the team of stylists styled a number of celebrities including Alan Cumming, Richard Rankin, Sophie Skelton, Karen Gillian, Morven Christie, Kiran Sonia Sawar, Dawn O’Portar and Laura Anderson, to name a few. The team provided the celebrities with fashion-focussed hair that was fun and cool for the red carpet.
Kiran Sonia Sawar, whose hair was created by Courtney, was styled into a stunning loose effortless up-do on the night, whereas Morven Christie’s hair created by Courtney was styled into a super sleek bun with a deep side parting. Courtney also styled Ex Doctor Who Star Karen Gillian’s hair into a sleek style with a classic middle parting and with the rest of her hair being worn behind her ears draped on her back. Misha styled Sophie Skelton’s hair into a similar sleek hairstyle, whereas Love Island star, Laura Anderson opted for glamorous retro curls with some height at the front styled by Megan. Diana styled both Alan Cumming and Richard Rankin’s hair using Wahl styling tools and trimmers to create cool, quirky looks. For all the looks created on the night, Schwarzkopf Professional Session Label OSiS+ products were used including Salt Spray, Sessional Label Volumizing Mousse, Coal Putty and Super Dry Flex Spray, which was used on all the celebrities to keep their hairstyles in place throughout the night.
