Rush’s Favourite Strictly Come Dancing 2017 Hairstyles

With our new salon opening in Lewisham, the Rush team wanted to get to know more about the area we would soon be providing with award-winning hair styling. We all agreed that one of the standout features in Lewisham is the long-standing Rivoli ballroom, built in 1913 and still proudly displaying 1950’s vintage décor throughout.

When we think ballroom, we think Strictly Come Dancing. When we think Strictly, we think fantastic hair. The celebrities have displayed a wide variety of hair styles this season that have left our stylists itching to provide for our newest salon customers.

With this in mind, the Rush team have picked our favourite hairstyles sported by this year’s Strictly contestants.

See a style that would suit you? Why not book an appointment with our fantastic Lewisham team, or find your nearest salon and get yourself a ballroom worthy style.


Alexandra Burke

Singer-songwriter Alexandra’s big curls suit her perfectly and have excellent body. Not only does her hair look fabulous but this style screams ‘healthy hair’ with a fantastic sheen and great body.

TV soap star and fitness-buff Gemma said she felt like a princess on this episode of the show, she looks the part too with this fantastic hair style. With a rolled fringe and an elaborate ponytail, this look is perfect for a special occasion, not just the ballroom.


Molly King

Popstar Mollie might be loving her dress here, but we love her hair. The slight curls add good volume to her fair hair and is perfect for a night out and would look perfect on any dance floor.
