Florence Pugh made waves last night when she hit the EE BAFTAs 2023 red carpet in block coloured custom Nina Ricci ensemble designed by Harris Reed and styled by Rebecca Corbin-Murray. The glam? Florence's go-to pro Alex Babsky was on make-up and Peter Lux on hair. The pair worked tirelessly to ensure Florence's first few steps on that red carpet were show-stopping, and that they were. Shots of Florence's micro-fringe and fanned up-to quickly circulated on social media, with many fans awarding the look the hypothetical accolade 'best hair'.

The fringe was Audrey Hepburn inspired. Alex wrote of the make-up look on Instagram, 'we did super classic make-up, but I covered the ends of Florence's brows and moved them to a more "Audrey" position to complement @peterluxhair's short fringe.'

Peter coined the style 'bangs and fans' on Instagram and at first it was unclear what hairdressing witchcraft he'd used to achieve it. Many speculated that he had slicked Florence's own hair into an updo before fixing the ends up with hairspray and trimming them into a fan, but his Instagram Stories say otherwise. Peter posted a thanks to his team typed over a picture of clip-in hair extensions, trimmed short and even. Placed over Florence's own hair and secured with bands and grips, they created the fanned plume of hair that characterised Florence's look, and mirrored her Nina Ricci silhouette perfectly.
