With winter fast-approaching, the festive season is just around the corner, bringing with it the many parties, occasions and nights out that call for a fabulous ‘do’. We are expecting glitter to feature in most party outfits this winter, so prepare to sparkle this December. There are also plenty of fabulous hairstyles for you to check out to make sure you look and feel fabulous on your big nights out! We’ve put together a list of our favourite styles and looks, as well as some advice on how best to achieve them, to give you some inspiration this season.
When it comes to girls and their curls, it has always been the bigger the better and this is particularly true when it comes to the party season. If you want a loud, look-at-me, statement style that gets you noticed, look no further than tight curls and perms this season. That said, there’s always a danger of your curls falling out halfway through the night, with hours of head-banging yet to come. Wash your hair the day before the party, as curls hold better in day-old hair, and familiarise yourself with heat-protective products. Remember, hairspray is a girls’ best friend. Backcomb your hair for voluminous curls that’ll last all night long!
The double space bun has made a huge comeback this year with Love Island’s Gabby Allen giving them the credit they deserve in the most recent series; other enthusiasts include Miley Cyrus, Arianna Grande and even Harry Styles! Incorporate the do with some cute plaits and a splash of glitter, and you’ve got yourself a red-carpet worthy look that’s bound to steal the show! If you’ve got a big event coming up, book yourself in at our Braid Bar in our hair salon, Bristol, where our stylists will be able to create a bespoke style that’s right for you, and one that will be secure for the whole night! Worry not about stray hairs falling, and only about getting the DJ to play your favourite song this winter!
The slick back look is back with a vengeance following a major presence at London Fashion Week, and is the perfect way to make a statement at your Christmas party. This is a great option for those with shorter hair who want to try something different. This style is the epitome of elegance as well as ticking all the boxes when it comes to glamour, but are you brave enough to give it a try? If so, back-brush at the hair-line to create volume, before smoothing it back with a fine toothcomb until you have the desired height and shape. Be generous with your go-to hairspray, and you’re good to go!
Never underestimate the power of a smooth and sleek bun. This style exaggerates your facial features in all the right places and allows room for some wow-factor earrings to steal the show. We love this smooth and sleek look below, with multiple plaits at the back leading to a neater-than-neat bun; très chic! If you are going to attempt this bold style, you have plenty of time to practice at home until you perfect the style that’s bound to get heads turning at your Christmas party. Next time you’re in for a trim, talk to your stylist about the best ways to achieve this look and ask them for tips on the best products to use to keep it in place.
One of the best ways you can make waves at your big event this season is with a colour change. As the New Year approaches, all the resolutions are beginning to form, and one of the best ways you can portray this in your style is with a bold, beautiful colour of the moment in your hair, and that’s where metallic comes in. Wear your hair loose and straight, lightly curled or embrace your natural locks; everyone will be so taken with the unique colour, they won’t think twice about what you’ve done with it! If you decide that metallic is the way forward for you, give us a call to arrange a luxury colour consultation, or book via the app today!
