Take a moment to unwind and plan your festive look, as we explore timeless classics, playful creations, and top tips to make sure your hair looks flawless all night long.
TOP TIPS TO MAKE YOUR STYLE LAST
Achieving a long-lasting look involves a few key steps, and it all starts with proper preparation!
Tailoring your prep to your desired style begins with considering the length and condition of your hair. Longer or thinner hair may need extra attention to secure your style, and using a specific hot tool can be crucial for achieving the desired finish.
Now, onto the MVPs – the products. Your look's fate lies in the hands of the products you choose; they can truly elevate your style and keep it intact. Here are our top tips and must-have products:
- Set the base with a heat protectant – A must-have product to protect your hair from heat damage. Above everything, this should be in your routine!
- Build the foundation with a texture spray or styling mousse – This not only adds volume but also provides texture, ensuring better shaping and hold for your curls. This step is especially crucial for those with thinner hair or hair that tends to struggle holding curls.
- Select the right styling tool – The key to achieving your desired waves lies in choosing the right tool. A larger barrel for big, loose waves, or a smaller barrel for tighter waves – it depends on the style you’re aiming for.
- Brush out your curls with a dressing brush or wide tooth comb – Once you have let your hair cool (a key step to prevent curls from dropping), gently brush or comb out your curls to your preferred style.
- Wrap up your style with a shine spray or hairspray – Dressing out your curls may create some frizz, so you’ll want to use these to help smooth out the hair for a sleek finish and a long-lasting hold.
With these steps and products in your arsenal, your fabulous look is not only prepped to perfection, but it will last all night long!
Now let's get to the looks which you can recreate at home, or bring as inspo with you to salon and let our expert stylists work their magic this Christmas.
