Cynthia fudgeBAFTA EE Rising Star nominee 2019, Cynthia Erivo rocked the red carpet in a haze of lilac – no we’re not just talking about her Vera Wang dress. Her lilac braids, curtesy of award-winning hairdresser Lisa Farrall and Fudge Professional Paintbox lilac frost, perfectly complemented her look. Lisa also accessorised Cynthia’s ‘do with the new KelaHead Crown.

Lisa says: “For this look I wanted to transform Cynthia into a regal mermaid, so it’s all about the detailing. Detailed cornrows on top of the head cascading down to individual embellished braids, make up this look. I wanted to create a style from every angle. On the left you have fish tail braids and Kelacharm jewels encased in the braids with a detailed curl pattern and on the right you have a embellished cascade of Kelacharm pearls. The colour was Fudge Professional Paintbox in frosted lilac, which Cynthia makes pop, with her amazing skin tone. The hair colour ties in with the make up and dress for a perfect combination of colour coordination. Cynthia completely owns this look and I love working with her creative vision, she’s a true artist.”
