How to style your hair this winter

Party with the Perfect Hairstyle this Christmas

One of the best parts of the festive period has to be the parties. From staff do’s and family get together to nights out with the girls, as they say, ‘tis the season to be jolly after all! Once you’ve got your killer outfit sorted, you’ll probably turn your attention to your hair, as this really can help to pull your outfit together.

That’s where we come in, as we can help you prime and prep your hair to perfection to ensure it lasts all night long! We’ve compiled together some of our favourite styles for this season, many of which can easily be recreated at home. Although, if you really want to treat yourself, why not pop into our hair salon in Bristol and let us do the hard work for you? You can enjoy a hot drink from our coffee lounge, sit back and relax while we transform your hair for the party season…

Braids for Days

If you’ve seen any of our blog posts in 2017 you’ll know that, here at Central Studio, we LOVE braids. They’ve been the hottest trend this year, and are incredibly versatile, taking you from festival to festive party in no time at all. Incorporating a plaited element into any hairstyle helps to add texture and interest, whether you go for big, bold, thick braids spun into a bun, as a crown, or fine strands delicately pinned into place. Ensure that your hair has an extra level of shine to make your braids sparkle by popping into the salon for one of our hair treatments, or investing in a spot of Fusio-Dose by Kerastase to give your hair the wow-factor salon effect at home.

Top Knot

A topknot or two are a quick and easy hairstyle to create that can add both sophistication and a unique edge to your look. This can be created to look smooth and sleek, kept in place by a layer or shine enhancing hairspray, or in an effortlessly loose manner with tousled waves falling from the knot. Embrace your inner Baby Spice with a set of space buns and get ready to party the night away!

Smooth and Sleek

Add a sense of finesse and elegance to your outfit with a smooth and sleek do. You’ll need super glossy locks to achieve perfection, and you can style your hair into either a super-straight do or with a set of soft waves. With the depths of winter well on their way, you might need a spritz of strong hold hairspray to keep those stray-aways at bay.

The Festive Bow

The festive bow is a quick and easy style to create, and it can be created from your desk if you’re heading straight from the office to your next party! It’s a fantastic way to transform a simple ponytail into something special; all you need to do is loop your ponytail and secure it with a hairband. Then separate the loop into two sections down the centre. Secure each side of the ‘bow’ with hairpins and finish with a spritz of hairspray. For an extra special touch, wrap a length of ribbon or a velvet scrunchie around the base of the bun.

Half Up/Half Down

An iconic duo, the half up half down is a go-to look for the party season. Incorporate delicate plaits into your do for added detail, and softly curl the ‘half down’ layer for a touch of femininity. This is another fantastically simple do for those ‘just one drink after work’ nights out. Ensure you always have a spare butterfly clip or hairband stashed away with a handbag size bottle of hairspray so you’re ready for anything!
