Scarlett Moffat has fast become one of the most well known faces to grace the TV since her beginnings on Googlebox – and is quickly becoming a national treasure… As you can imagine, we were thrilled to hear she wanted to transform her hair with the innovative, GL Tapes.
We caught up with Scarletts hair stylist Amber Yuill at Hobson and Homes, Darlington to find out how we can re-create Scarletts voluminous, long dark hair.
Amber began, “As Scarlett’s hair is naturally dark, after discussing the options on whether to break the hair up with slightly lighter shades in the GL Tapes, we decided on Colour 1B – she was happy to keep her hair dark all over and for a natural blend. We applied 30 GL Tapes as Scarlett already has quite thick hair to start with and from experience I have learned that having an extra few allows for better coverage and blend, especially when going for such a longer length, it’s important to keep the hair looking natural!”
“We used 22” GL Tapes , as she was wanting to go for the longer length. This is the longest available length from Great Lengths in GL Tapes (unless you submit a special order from Italy) and she said she was happy to try this length, as it could always be cut and shortened if necessary. From start to finish (including the initial washing, blow drying and then cutting once applied) the service took around 2 hours – which Scarlett said herself was a LOT quicker than she was expecting.”
“On consultation, Scarlett was mainly wanting her hair longer and to be kept at the shade it was. Her hair was just past shoulder length and she already has thick hair, she just missed the length! She also had some shorter pieces round the front that she said she struggled to grow, so I explained we could maybe take the GL Tapes slightly higher to help blend these bits in.”
“Once the GL Tapes had been cut and blended, overall, Scarlett’s hair was completely different to what we began with. So much more added length! I did apply a couple of tapes slightly higher round the front to blend the fringe into the length (however still ensuring they were hidden so that she would be able to wear her hair up) which Scarlett said made a huge difference and that she wished she had had them applied like that previously! We then finished the look by adding a wave to the hair.”
