Hair for party

How to go from work hair to party hair this holiday season

The festive/party season is here and lots of our clients have been asking about tips and tricks to take them from day to night over the festive season. 

You obviously want to look fabulous and good hair makes you feel great! If you have an event straight after a day in the office, or a busy day takes priority over getting ready for an evening out, below are some tips to take you from day to night. 

We have chosen some easy party hair-dos that will ensure that you look dazzling during the holiday season. 

The first is a straight look for the day which can be achieved with naturally straight hair, or hair that has been straightened with a hair straightener or a blow-dryer, a side hair part and some slight backcombing for a touch of volume.

For the nighttime look, loose hair waves can be added using a curling iron or straightener. Loose beach waves are always a winning look, and easy to achieve. We recommend styling Nak Fixation Finishing Spray.

Headbands are an instant way to update your hair look. You can throw on a cute or glitzy headband to take your hair from day to night. Smooth your hair with a flexible hair gel and then slide on the headband to complete the look.

The wet-hair look is a hot hair trend for 2020. All you need to do is work a gel cream through slightly damp hair and spritz on a glossing spray to finish.

A favourite of ours is also the top knot, the ultimate day to night hairstyle that is super simple. This hairstyle is both a show stopper and efficient, so it’s a win-win. The low-maintenance look is ideal in case you need to redo it before meeting your friends after a day in the office. Play around with messy tousled styles for a more casual look or braided styles for a real 80’s feel.You could pile it up high to add height to your profile or keep it straight and simple with a fashionable “ballerina bun”.The possibilities with the topknot are endless!

Ponytails aren’t just for lazy days or hitting the gym. Try wearing one to work, then rocking it for girl’s night.  Your pulled back style will ooze style.

Big bouncy curls are always a show stopper and simple to achieve. Always use a heat protectant   when styling your hair with heat tools. We highly recommend Kerastase Ciment Thermique

Styling your hair for the festive season doesn’t need to be complicated. Utilising quality styling products will ensure that your hair lasts from day to night.
