Looking for a hairstyle for your Christmas party that blends old school glamour with on-trend style? Then look no further than the chopstick curl. This retro-inspired look has had a resurgence in popularity recently thanks to celebrities such as Nicole Scherzinger, and it’s bound to turn heads at your festive functions this year.
Chopstick curls make a big impact, but luckily they don’t require a big effort. To prep, all that’s needed is a light layer of heat defence spray such as EIMI’s Thermal Image. Once you’re armed with a curling tong – we love the narrower barrel of the ghd Curve Creative Curl Wand – it’s time to start wrapping the hair around and creating those tight curls!
Finish the Look
This look is all about tight, defined curls, so you’ll need to use some finishing products that stop the curls from turning to frizz. Bed Head’s Headrush adds shine, and can be picked up as part of the Shine On Gift Set this Christmas. Finally, the EIMI Volume Sugar Lift is infused with sugar to provide lift, shine, and a defining texture that will keep your chopstick curls looking fabulous all night. This can be bought separately here, or alongside Thermal Image in the EIMI Blow Dry Box Christmas Pack.
