Christmas Party Hair


Christmas is here, the parties are in full swing! So, what way are you wearing your hair over the festive period? 

Whether it's christmas lunch or a night out with colleagues or friends make sure your hair is looking fabulous!

Here is some party hairstyle inspiration for you!

Big tousled curls and a girly fringe is perfect for natural glamour. 

This can be created like Zooey Deschanel's hair using volumising products and a big round brush, pinning each section into a large barrel curl and being left to set. 

Alternatively, using a large barrel curling tong on the ends of the hair will create big flowing waves. 

Set with a light holding hairspray to give a soft brushable finish.

Similar kind of style with soft flowing waves but this time Scarlett Johansson has her hair swept back at one side with a pretty clip or fascinator to dress it up slightly. 

This creates a party style that's easy to do without being to fussy or complicated.

For that extra volume and dramatic curl why not opt for a striking 1940's wave at the roots, brought into tight volumised tight curls on the ends. 

This will create a statement look that is easy to wear and will last all night long! 

Using strong hold products to blowdry, a heat protector when using hot tools like GHD's and curling tongs, then to finish use a strong hold but brushable spray to set. You will look fabulous.

Plaits are so fashionable at the moment and can be incorporated into any hairstyle or up-do.

Kate Bosworth has decided to go for a french plait upstyle, all the hair is away from the face. This is so easy to wear, its girly and fun, while being elegant and classy at the same time.

This hairband plait effect can be great with the back of your hair down if you didn't want all of your hair up, for a softer look.

This is another example of a simple plait incorporated into an upstyle. 

Taking a wide section of hair on one side and adding in an inside-out plait all along the side and round by the nape of the neck adds glamour and prettiness to this side do. 

Pulling the plait out slightly once its finished will create a sightly less severe feel while bulking it out slightly to make it bigger. 

This style can be nice going into straight hair or curls. You could even also put the ends of the hair into a messy chignon or bun. Hold in place with a good hold hairspray that brushes out easily and voila!

This is a beautiful upstyle if you are going to a christmas ball, red carpet event, party or a night out in town. 

A deep side parting with a sweeping side fringe pinned into a large chignon at the back like Emma Stone.

This style will hold all night without worrying about having any hair around your face. Elegant and sophisticated, this is definitely a statement look.

Why not put your hair in heated rollers and leave to set for ultimate volume? 

Alternatively, blowdrying each section and pinning into large curls and leaving to set will create big bouncy curls that will last last.
Using a soft bristle brush to backcomb the roots will create natural volume that can easily be brushed through. 

Running your fingers through the curls will shake them up and separate them to take away the look of being too set.

Make sure your hair is looking fabulous this Christmas, pop in for a free consultation just to talk about some styles!
