It only takes a quick flick through our Instagram explore page to know that we’re knee deep in awards season – I mean, we’ve all seen that Cardi B dress, right?!

So far, we’ve had the Golden Globes, the Grammy’s and the BAFTA’s, meaning that next on the list is the Brit Awards.

That’s right, on February 20th, some of the biggest (and homegrown) stars on the planet will come together to celebrate the best of British talent, but first they have to walk that all-important red carpet – AKA our favourite part of the entire night.

As we patiently wait to see this year’s glam, we’ve rounded up some of the best hairstyles of Brit Award history and shown you exactly how to recreate them.


RITA ORA

Rita Ora brought all the sass and sophistication to last year’s carpet with this pretty, curly updo.
