The Christmas season will soon be upon us, and for all you lovely ladies out there it’s a fantastic excuse to whip out the cocktail dresses, flaunt fresh new makeup looks and of course, experiment with gorgeous hairstyles that have ‘party season’ written all over them. To get you inspired we’ve put together a collection of our favourite festive looks that are guaranteed to go down a treat this Christmas social season.
Belles with bows
Sweet and simple, this style is great for gals with long straight hair that’s just begging to be shown off. Start by washing, then blow-drying straight. Spritz with a little texture spray, then section off a thick strand above the ears. Pull to one side before getting creative with your bow tying skills!
All wrapped up
For ladies with thicker locks this alternative ‘bow tie’ style is sure to have Christmas party guests swooning. It works best with ultra-glossy locks so be sure to get your tresses trimmed and treated before the big night. Wear your hair straight, or create a softer look by curling the ends into flowing waves.
Casual yet elegant, this hairstyle looks gorgeous when teamed with a sexy cocktail dress and on-trend winter coat. It’s ideal for ladies with thinner hair as it adds instant volume and height. If you want to get really festive you can even weave in some ribbons in reds, greens and golds.
We adore this look – it’s festive, delicate and oh so pretty. Shop around for a wreathlike headpiece, or get creative and make your own. Start by curling the hair with a large tong, then pinning it up at the nape of the neck for an aesthetic that’s reminiscent of sophisticated old world glamour.
Can you tell we’re a little in love with plaits this festive season? Recreate this style by sectioning off a strand of hair at the nape of the neck, plaiting and wrapping around the crown of the head. Make it as thin or thick as you like.
