It’s that time of the year again! Que the prosecco, sequenced dresses, office parties, mulled wine and festive celebrations! No doubt your calendar is already filled with Christmas parties all demanding the perfect Christmas party hairstyle!
We have compiled a list of our favourite looks you can easily achieve at home or by popping into a Live True London salon!
CHRISTMAS PARTY HAIRSTYLES: THE TEXTURED PONYTAIL
The textured ponytail is a simple and classic look, great for showing off any accessorises you may be wearing by pulling your hair off your face.
Start by curling your hair using a curling iron. Curl the hair away from the face to add texture to the ponytail. Pull the hair back into a ponytail and secure with a hair tie. Section off some hair to wrap around the elastic to hide it from sight.
To add volume to this look, tease the hair at the crown with a fine-toothed comb and secure the look with Redken Quick Tease hair spray.
CHRISTMAS PARTY HAIRSTYLES: WAVES FOR DAYS
This look requires a curling iron and hairspray! Grab your tongs and curl your hair! For variation, we suggest curling the hair using a large curling barrel for large loosely falling curls shaping your face. Curl the hair in different directions to change things up and show off a new look!
Accessorise this simple look with a detailed festive headband.
CHRISTMAS PARTY HAIRSTYLES: SIDE SWEPTED HOLLYWOOD GLAMOUR
For an elegant Christmas party hairstyle, side swept old school Hollywood curls ooze glamour and sophistication!
Start by side parting the hair! The trick is to part the hair in the opposite direction to your usual parting to immediately create volume for this look! You can either blow dry your curls using a large round brush or use a large barrelled curling iron. Curl the hair in the same direction and brush through, followed by setting with a finishing spray!
Pin the hair back with something sparkly as a final touch if you wish!
CHRISTMAS PARTY HAIRSTYLES: BRAIDED BUN
Use Redken Velvet Gelatine and brush the product through the hair to set it into a super sleek high ponytail. Before you secure the hair into a ponytail, section some hair, braid it and set it aside. Wrap the ponytail around itself and create a bun! To create a voluminous bun, we suggest using a hair donut! Once you have created and secured your bun with pins, wrap the braided strand around the bun as a final touch to this sleek look!
CHRISTMAS PARTY HAIRSTYLES: RETRO VOLUME
We are loving this Christmas party hairstyle! Start the look with clean blow-dried hair! Brush the hair back, grab your comb and start teasing the hair at the crown. Tease the hair by taking sections, inserting the comb in the middle of the section and brush down several times to add volume to the hair. Secure a ribbon at the start of the teased look and set your volume with Redken Quick Tease hair spray.
CHRISTMAS PARTY HAIRSTYLES: BRAIDS
Crown braids, fishtail braids, accents braids! Adding a braid to loose locks, a thick French plait along the hairline into a messy bun, a messy fishtail braid or small accent braids amongst curls adds to perfect touch of glam!
Secure the braid with Redken Braid Aid, so it is easy to grip and style the braid and ensure it lasts all night long!
CHRISTMAS PARTY HAIRSTYLES: SIDE PARTED HIGH SHINE
Compliment your formal Christmas look with a side parted high shine look!
Experiment with this look with a side parting, or a voluminous or side swept quiff!
It is easier to start with wet hair. Decide on the look you wish to achieve and comb the hair into a side parting. Use Redken Velvet Gelatine to slick down your sides and create that high shine classic James Bond look!
CHRISTMAS PARTY HAIRSTYLES: SLICKED BACK
Simply slick the hair back, no parting required! Apply Redken Velvet Gelatine and comb and blow dry the hair back for a cushioned finish with a natural looking shine!
Whether it is a blow dry, a hair up or a luxury braid, pop into a Live True London salon for your perfect Christmas party hairstyle.
