X Factor Style: Behind the Scenes

X Factor Style: Behind the Scenes X Factor Style: Behind the Scenes We\'re so happy to have Amelia back - we\'ve always admired her personal style and needless to say LOVE her hair! Hairdresser Jamie Stevens says \"When Amelia returned another stylist had been colouring her hair and it had gone an odd purpley patchy pink. Not good. So I got her back in my hair chair and we took her back to that lovely soft pink hue. I used long blonde hair extensions and coloured those the same shade as her own hair and then we gave her that \'shag hair\' finish using big tongs to create a tousled wave\".

X factor hair genius Jamie Stevens explains how we can try this at home. \"Kitty\'s mohawk was a kind of Mad Max Trojan warrior creation. I back brushed the whole head from root to tip and then used a smoothing bristle brush to smooth out the sides working all the way back to the nape of the neck. I then used kirby grips to pin a criss cross pattern all the way to the nape of the neck.\"

I then sprayed the body of the hair with hair spray and used a hair drier to help define the shape and mould and emphasise that finished look\".

Less and less contestants but regarding make up, just keep watching this space to see if we may just go bigger and bolder. All will soon be revealed!\"

I\'m massively influenced by the artist Jean Paul Goude, his work is all about colour and expression and that\'s the direction I go in for the contestants\".

X Factor Style: Behind the Scenes: Little Mix

X Factor Style: Behind the Scenes X Factor Style: Behind the Scenes Style guru Laury Smith says of Little Mix\'s style \"I think Little Mix have quite a strong identity now and they all have their own personal twists on their looks whilst appearing quite uniform at the same time, Jade always has her bow ties and braces, Jesy always her leggings, Leanne is more cutesy in peplum skirts, Perrie is in her button down shirts. I think they definitely keep that look going. I want them to be fashion, young and fun. The colour palette will definitely tone down some weeks though\".

X Factor Style: Behind the Scenes X Factor Style: Behind the Scenes \"We used a shoulder length wig and used mini cloud 9 straighteners to create ribbon curls in thin sections all the way through. I then brushed these out using my fingers to create a structured yet messy finish\".

X Factor Style: Behind the Scenes X Factor Style: Behind the Scenes Now Kitty has gone, Misha B is now the competition\'s style boundary-pusher. We love this green lightening strike eye liner - would it be too much to rock this look on a visit to the shops?!

After clamping at the root we repeated the crimp all the way down to the end of each section of hair, ensuring the ends were curled under as opposed to kicked out\".
