Tis’ nearly the season to be jolly and soon the party invites will be rolling in. It feels like after last year, we want to go hard this Christmas and make the most of being 'out out', spending time with our nearest and dearest. From work Christmas parties, to get-togethers with family and friends, celebrations are part and parcel of the festive period.
We’ve pulled together some of our favourite hair styles to get you party-ready this season.
Poker straight and silky smooth, we love this simple style that makes a statement. To recreate the look at home, use hair straighteners to smooth out kinks and frizz. For an ultra-sleek finish try using a serum like the SachaJuan Shine Serum which seals the cuticle to make hair look healthy, super sleek and uber shiny.
You can never go wrong with a classic blow-dry, boasting volume and bounce, it works for any occasion. Using a spray like the Milk_Shake Lifestyling Amazing Spray as it speeds up blow-drying time, fights humidity, tames frizz and promotes heat protection – what’s not to love!
Big, boisterous bombshell-style curls are perfect for party situations that require that extra of bit of glamour. Dust off your heated rollers, because big 90’s curls are back! Set your hair in large rollers until they are cool. Before you remove the rollers, spray a strong hold hair spray around your head, like the Davines Strong Hold Hair Spray to set the curls in place and last all night. Add a red lip for next-level glamour!
A slicked back style looks so sophisticated plus it’s an easy one to do if you are short on time or haven’t managed to wash your hair for a few days. Leave your hair down but comb your hair back then coat it with a lightweight oil like the Davines OI Oil for a sleek, shiny finish. Add a little volume on top to keep the hairstyle from falling flat as the night goes on with a volume spray like the Moo Yoo Volumising Spray Mist Spray Mist.
Classy and fun, a messy bun is the perfect style for any soiree day or night. Add some texture and volume to your strands, try the Alterna Caviar Styling Sea Salt Spray and then use a comb to tease your hair at the roots for full-bodied look. Collect all your hair at the top of your head and tie it into a ponytail. Then loosely twist the ponytail into a bun and secure it with a few bobby pins, the more tousled it looks the better. Loop a hair elastic around the messy bun you just created two to three times to hold it in place. Finish with hairspray to set the style.
Effortless soft waves are just the ticket when you’re heading to an event. This simple style can dress up any outfit. Use large curling tongs to create relaxed waves in the hair – secure waves with a firm hairspray like the Joico Joimist Firm Finishing Spray which gives strong hold but with a touchable soft finish.
If you aren’t great at styling, a fun way to mix up your look is using temporary hair colours. Playful and chic, it can up your hair game during the party season. The vegan Maria Nila Colour Refresh colour collection gives you a chance to experiment with your style – lasting only 4-7 washes, you can change your hair colour frequently to match your mood or outfit!
