Hair Hacks: How to Make Your Hairstyle Last the Night

Calling all the party gals! Is your biggest struggle in the festive season trying to make your glam hair-do last the night? We all know how deflating it can be to spend hours priming and prepping your hair, simply to find that your curls fall flat within a few short hours. Fear not, as we’ve got some hair hacks that will help your ‘lock-in’ your locks all night long, no matter how much you dance on the table and rock around the Christmas tree!

Bobby Pins + Hair Spray

This nifty trick might be a lifesaver, not only for the party season but all year around. Do you find that your hairpins seem to slide down your strands as the day goes on? Well, if you give them a quick spritz of your favourite hairspray before popping them into your do, the texture created from the spray will keep the pin firmly in place. HALLELUJAH!

Texture = Results

Although clean, product free hair feels sublime, if you really want your style to stick then it’s all about the texture. You can do this in many ways, and some say that second-day hair works best if you want to add body and volume. If your ritual hair washing routine simply cannot be interrupted, add a texturising mousse to damp hair before blow-drying, and then opt for some texturising salt spray to make it easier to work with. There are so many products available today to add texture, and if you’re in search of some recommendations, pop into our hairdressers Bristol, and we’ll offer up some priceless advice!

Tight + Sleek = On Fleek

Picking the perfect hairdo for your next festive party is a very exciting decision, but if you’re looking for something that will last, then you might be better off opting for something with some stability to start with. Smooth, sleek and tight hairstyles such as high ponytails and braided buns require a solid base, so they certainly can stand the test of time if executed correctly!

Hairspray + Toothbrush = Smooth & Glossy

If you do opt for a tight, sleek up-do, then get yourself a can of hairspray and a clean toothbrush, it will work wonders, trust us. Once you’ve created your masterpiece, spritz a light layer of hairspray over the look and brush from the roots towards your crown. This will help to brush those pesky baby hairs into place and stop any stray-aways ruining your polished look.

Pins + Curls

If you’re going all out for long, flowing curls, this trick will certainly come in handy to help them set! Begin your curls from the top of your neck, curling from the root to the end, then, pull the curl together to form its natural spiral and compress. Then you can pop a bobby pin and pin the curl to the root, continue this process until your whole head is covered in bobby pins and curls. Spray a light layer of hairspray over the curls, then begin to remove the pins one by one, starting with the first curls you set. Allowing the curls to cool whilst held in shape means that they’ll last much longer and will be bouncier!

Set with Spray and Dance the Night Away

No matter what kind of style you chose to rock for your next party, setting it with hairspray is an absolute must. If you’re looking for glossy and smooth finish, then use a wide-toothed comb to brush out your hair; this will get rid of any crunchy strands. Try to not only use hairspray on the top layer of hair but also ensure that the spray reaches all layers for the perfect hold.

However you wear your hair this season, we hope you have a fantastic time. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from everyone at Central Studio!
