Christmas party styles: 2 in 1 festive hair tutorial
As the festive season approaches, you’re probably starting to hear alarm bells rather than jingle bells: Not only do you have a heap of presents to buy, you also still haven’t figured out your outfit/hair/makeup for the parties and get togethers you’ve RSVP’d to. Luckily, we can help you tick at least one of those off your list: your festive hairstyle. We teamed up with Creative Director Kieron Fowles to create our festive ‘do for 2018 – a concoction of all things trendy and glamourous – yet easy to recreate yourself either in the comfort of your own home or even on-the-go.
If this year’s fashion weeks are anything to go by, we were spoilt for choice when it came to picking the style we thought was up there in the hair game stakes – but we’re confident with our choice. Or rather choice-s. We’re so happy with our chosen two looks that we’ve put together a 2 in 1 festive look you’ll be able to recreate effortlessly thanks to our simple, step by step video tutorial. If like an upcoming socialite you have parties back to back this season you’ll be thrilled to know that you can have a different look for each event – even if they’re happening in the same night.
All it takes is a quick search online to discover this year’s most talked about styles that have trickled down from the runway to the high street. Glamorous, soft waves have been all the rage on catwalks this year – and we love how they can be dressed up or down – meaning you can pair it with your staple black cocktail dress or a more playful Christmas jumper ensemble.
For a more sophisticated look you can pair your barely-there lip gloss and highlighted cheeks with a sophisticated yet relaxed chignon. Use the oomph created from your glamour waves to mould your tresses into a chic updo that’s set to complete any party look.
The great thing about these 2 in 1 festive looks is that there is something for everyone – for every face shape, hair type and length – well actually, if you’ve got a pixie cut you’re probably pushing it! But if you have some sort of length to your hair that you can play with, you’ll find pretty much that you can more than just ‘pull-off’ these looks – you’ll look amazing.
There are also different levels of fanciness, depending on just how dressed up you want your hair to be at whatever kind of event you’re heading to, be it an office Christmas party where you want to look professional, or a family gathering (with kids running around) where comfort is key. The ‘versa-style’ ‘dos in the video below can be dressed up with embellished festive clips or loosened up with extra dry shampoo and stray hairline strands for a more casual feel.
