Deck the hair!
‘Tis the season to look gorgeous and, this Christmas, it’s most definitely time to let your hair down – or up!!
Whether it’s the long-awaited office party, meal out with your besties, or an overdue boogie on your favourite dance floor, make sure your hair is at its festive best with these fab style ideas from KH Hair Creative Team member, Martin Quenault.
Bang on trend for Christmas are low ponytails – either sleek and smooth, or waved and finished off with a gorgeous sparkling party bow.
To create the smooth version, I’d recommend using an oil such as Wella Lux Oil or Sebastian Dark Oil on wet hair. Blow dry smooth with a paddle brush and finish with ghd straighteners and a heat protection spray such as Sebastian Trilliant. Then take up in a pony and secure your bow with grips. If you want more of a textured or curly look, switch the oil for a mousse such as Sebastian Mousse Forte and blow dry with a large round brush, then curl with the straighteners or large tongs.
For a fabulously glamorous look, hair can be slicked back into a smooth or textured bun with chunky diamond style or white feather slides. Use a strong spray such as Sebastian Shaper Fierce to hold in shape.
This Christmas sees a return to the roaring twenties too, with slick finger waves styled with diamanté hair bands. To create this look, apply Sebastian Gel Forte to wet hair. Using a wide-toothed comb, shape into a wave, secure in place with long clips and allow to dry naturally or use a hairdryer on a low setting. Then remove the clips once set in place.
Also big this party season are tight and beautiful curls. Use straighteners or very small tongs and take small sections to create this look. Spray each section before you curl with Sebastian Re-shaper Hairspray to give a good movable hold and leave to slightly fall out naturally.
Don’t dress them out as you want the curls to stay tight and secure.
When it comes to colour, this Christmas, think honey warm blondes, copper reds and peachy tones. All these colours can be maintained with the Sebastian Professional Wella Colour Care range.
Ask in salon about the great range of Christmas gift sets available and look out for the fantastic Wella Colour Masks, which are great to keep your colour refreshed until your next salon visit.
