VIDEO: Genies Red Carpet Hair

As we get closer to Canada's hottest night in film, the 32nd Annual Genie Awards, we can't help but get excited about the red carpet reveals. We had a chance to once again talk with our go-to hair expert, Kristjan Hayden of Civello Salons, about some of the potential looks that he put together at the I Dream of Genie press preview event.  

Kritjan on the Kristen Wiig look

"A lot of what we've been interpreting from the red carpet season this year is that casual is the new glam.  So we have more hair worn down than ever before.  Lots of actresses like Kristen Wiig [from Bridesmaids] and Jessica Chastain [from Tree of Life] are wearing their hair in long, loose, natural waves and rocking it out on the red carpet."

Kristjan on the Berenice Bejo look:

"If women are wearing their hair up [on the red carpet] they're doing things that have more
texture. Things that are a little bit looser feeling.  We have the side braid, kind of like Berenice Bejo [from The Artist], pulled back into a low, messybun, so nothing looks too perfect."

Kristjan on the Vintage look:

"[Other woman who wear their hair up] have slightly vintage inspired hair styles, with a little bit of volume in the crown, side sweeping bangs or fringes and a lower messy textured bun. The whole feel is very casual and relaxed."
