Christmas party hair

November 28, 2013

So the Christmas party season is fast approaching (eek) and with any luck by now you have sorted your dress and your makeup look, you may have even decided on a manicure for good measure. But what about your hair? The right hair style can really make or break your festive look as a great hair look can take a so so outfit and make it look fab and a bad do can make even the best dress look less than perfect. So how can you get your hair looking full of festive cheer this Christmas?



Before worrying too much about how you are going to wear your hair for the big night you need to make sure your hair is looking its absolute best. So book in for a trim to get rid of any split ends and keep your style looking great. Also don’t neglect your colour as the last thing you want is for your roots to start showing over the festive period. So get booked in for a cut and colour now.

But once you have sorted the basics what styles should you opt for in order to get the perfect festive look?


The updo

There is a reason that the celebs often turn to an updo for their red carpet hair – it’s because an updo always looks chic and elegant. From an elegant bun, to a chic French pleat or even a fab plait there is a great look for your Christmas party.


The key to a great updo is to start with a great blow dry which will look in moisture into your hair, while if you do feel a little bit daunted by the thought of doing a good updo for your party why not book into Shumaila’s where we can make you feel like a princess.

A volumous blow dry

A great volumised blow dry screams party, probably because it is not an easy look to do so it is perfect for a special occasion. What’s more it was even a look seen on the catwalk with shows like the AW13 Carolina Herrera runway showcasing the fab look. The aim is to go for a lot of height at the crown and a sleek style for the rest of your hair.


Rock next year’s trends now

Of course if you want to really get ahead of the fashion curve why not try cutting a dramatic fringe into your hair, just look at Kendall Jenner’s recent hair look for inspiration. While if you don’t want to cut a fringe into your hair you could try a clip in fringe and keep the rest of your hair loose and textured.
