FASHION FILES: PARTY HAIR

It’s party time so it’s not just your outfit that needs to be glam, your hair needs to make a statement too!

Party-Hair_AAV5585Melanie Richard’s Hair Boutique, Peterborough Salon of the Year 2014, came up with some fantastic looks for our ESP December fashion shoot – and they can do the same for you.

Up-dos are generally a little more casual and messier than they used to be so don’t be too sleek and precise. Use dry shampoo to give your hair more body for bigger bolder looks.

For Becca’s first look (pictured left) the team gave her a vintage wave created with a wand and added a tighter curl on the ends, with the hair curled in two different directions.

For Lauren (pictured below right) the team went for a very different style creating a fresh look for her using braids and curls.Party-Hair_AAV5639

Classic curl GHD tongs were used to create the look and Sebastian Drynamics was used to add texture. Hair was prepped with Shine Define curl holding spray for shine and heat protection.

Plaits are still big for party looks and Lauren’s hair was finished with a braid across the front which was then loosened and pulled out a little, and the crown was back brushed for height.

Party-Hair_AAV5580For Tori’s up-do (pictured left) her hair was pre-curled with the GHD Eclipse to give smooth definition and a polished feel. It was then combed to one side and pinned up to create vintage style Hollywood glamour.

Even if you have short hair, don’t despair about changing it for a night out – you can still pin it up even if it’s short, or of course add in extensions and hair pieces.

Equally long hair can be transformed into a faux bob like Becca’s hair (pictured below right), where it was pinned up underneath. Party-Hair_AAV5653

If you’ve always wanted to try a bob style but aren’t willing to part with your long locks, steal Becca’s style and fake it.

It’s the bob you’ve always wanted without cutting off your hair and believe it or not it is achievable in a matter of minutes.

Mel explains – “We simply tied the back of the hair in a loose ponytail leaving the front sections out, rolled the pony under and secured with pins. Then using our finger tips we ‘pinched’ out the waves, starting at the ends working our way towards the roots. Once happy with the look, we pinned excess hair to remove any unwanted length and finished with hairspray.”

Party-Hair_AAV5687For Tori’s second look it was unpinned and transformed into a sexy, sophisticated wave while the opposite idea was used for Lauren’s hair which was left with the braided front but the length was piled on top for an entirely different vibe.

Melanie Richard’s Hair Boutique can offer party looks from just £14 and throughout December you can add a spray tan for just £10 so you’ll be party ready from top to toe!Party-Hair_AAV5696
