Lifestyle-Salon's-guide-to-party-hairstyles

December is always a great month for parties and a time for gorgeous party hair to take centre stage.

If you’ve got parties planned – a works do, family gathering or a night out with friends – I bet you’ve already started to think about what to wear. But have you given any thought to how you might style your hair to complete the look and make sure you’re the belle of the ball? We thought not….

Don’t worry. The Lifestyle stylists are here to lend a hand. They’ve put together some fabulous styles you can do at home, just by following their simple steps.

Short Hair
Just because you have short hair it doesn’t mean you have to stick to one style. Tia loves this slick bob with a difference.

How to create the look
Step 1: Apply KMS Tame Frizz smoothing lotion to towel dried hair before blow drying smooth with a paddle brush.
Step 2: Once completely dry use your straighteners to add a slight curl to the ends to give bounce and movement
Step 3: When the ends of the hair are all curled, run your fingers through your hair to loosen the curls
Step 4: Finish with KMS Hairstay anti humidity spray to protect from frizzing and to give a lovely shine!

Half-up do
If you have mid-length or long hair, a half-up do is fabulous for a party or any special occasion. Fern talks us through this style.

How to create the look
Step 1: After washing, towel dry hair and add Moroccanoil root booster spray. Work round your head, lifting hair a section at a time and spraying the root section. Then blow dry until completely dry.
Step 2: Using straighteners or a curling wand, add loose or tight curls depending on your preference, to all sections.
Step 3: Taking a section from the front, lift the hair straight upwards and then start moving your comb down to towards the root until you get to the top of the ears. Continue this back combing with all front sections. This will add volume and structure.
Step 4: Smooth out the back-combed sections.
Step 5: Pull back two side pieces and secure them at the back of the head with two grips. Finish with spray to secure in place – try Moroccanoil luminous hairspray for great hold.

Fishtail plaits

Plaits and braids never seem to go out of fashion and they’re a great choice for the Christmas season! We love fishtail plaits but the technique is a bit tricky to explain so we’ve found this Moroccanoil video for you to show you how to get the look….

 

Why not add accessories either to the top of the plait or down its length to give added Christmas sparkle!
