7 Styles for your Christmas Party Hair

Party hair

The dread of the Christmas party!  A night out with the boss and you must be on your best behaviour! Who is looking forward to that? MMMM!!! Or maybe you work with your bestie so you shriek and shrill at the thought of the office party. The only topic of conversation for the next few weeks will be about that dress you bought and how you are doing your hair for that special night out.

Well we have taken the hard work out of this for you and these are our top picks.

Soft curls with one side pinned up

If you don’t really like all your hair up but still want to look glam, this style is ideal. It suits most face shapes. It elongates the cheek bones almost like an instant facelift. Show off those new earrings.

Volume Blow Dry

Ask you stylist to add more volume and height to your normal blow dry. You will look like you have so much more hair. You need to use a good volumizing shampoo and conditioner, some mousse or volume crème to help it along and don’t forget a gentle back combing to keep the height in place for the night.

Low Side Bun

A Romantic style to get you in the mood for whomever you meet under the mistletoe. Ideal with any one shouldered dress. Your hair is up out of the way if it gets “hot” at the office party.

Tousled Upstyle

Leave plenty of hair down around your face for that added softness. Shows off a nice backless dress.

Loose Beachy Waves

These waves are still very much on trend for the party season. Perfect to add interest to long or short hair. Very feminine and sexy. Use a texturizing spray to hold the wave in place and you will still be able to tousle it up without any stickiness.

Hollywood Waves

Set your hair in big rollers and spritz with your favourite spray, pop on some red lippy and voila  – instant glam.

This simple style can take you from day to night. Sleek it during the day and ruffle it up and add some extensions to bring you into the night. Killer heels and long earrings to finish this look.
