Party Hair – for Christmas and New Year


You can literally smell Christmas can’t you? All the coffee shops are serving their gingerbread lattes and specialty Amaretto coffees, town and city centres are awash with twinkly lights and the smell of mince pies fills our nostrils in every bakery. The festive season is springing itself upon us!

Christmas smells, sights and sounds aside it’s also that time of the year where our social calendars are stacked thanks to parties, gatherings and festivities galore! What better way to make a statement this Christmas and New Year with a perfect party hairstyle? Transform yourself from office dullard to diva with these fantastic party hair styles, all available to create for you at our hair salon in Durham:

Versatile Bun Party Hair Styles

From classic to braided, piled high to sleek the bun is most definitely a firm favourite when it comes to dressing up hair for any party hair style. Hide a bedraggled head of hair with a carefully constructed side bun with sweeping fringe like Amy Childs here. She’s twisted hair in sections, pinning and overlapping to create this effect. An elegant and stunning yet simple style that will really leave a lasting impression.

Kelly Brook’s messy high bun here is also another simple way to change from dowdy to dazzling thanks to your perfect party hair style. Pile hair high, use plenty of backcoming and product to hold the height then secure in place and take a sleeker piece of hair (ideally not back combed) to seal in the style and create the ultimate glamorous messy bun!

For an even simpler bun style, copy Sarah Jessica Parker’s high ballet bun. Fold the hair over and pin underneath or use a bun ring to steal her party hair style.

Ponytail Party Hair Styles

There’s nothing easier than a ponytail party hairstyle. Inject glamour and red carpet sex appeal with a sleek backed style here just like Kim Kardashian. Perfect for poker straight hair, this is a dramatic style that says you mean business this Christmas.

Add volume and lift with a few softer simple touches round the side to create a more feminine girly ponytail that projects innocence, sensibility and maturity. Perfect for trying to score Brownie points with the boss over a Christmas drink!

Waves & Curls Party Hair Styles

Nothing oozes Hollywood glamour quite like a big, bouncy curly party hairstyle! Whether set in rollers, curled with tongs, a curling wand or ghd styling iron you can’t go wrong with a curly blow dry for ultra sexy, gorgeous party hair. The best way to recreate this party hair style is of course to book in at Steven Scarr Hairdressing where we will be delighted to recreate the big bouncy curly style for you, professionally. With blow dry prices starting at just £16 what a cost effective way to ensure you look red carpet ready this party season! Here are some wavy and big curl styles we like; Carrie Underwood, Adele and supermodel Karlie Kloss.

Braids & Plaits Party Hair Styles

Braided, plaited and weaved party hair styles show no sign of slowing down in popularity. So versatile – plait wet just-got-out-of-the-shower hair for those times you just haven’t got the time to get the hairdryer out and the style will last all day! Braided up dos have made a huge appearance on the catwalks and red carpets all over the world. From simple chunky plaits to intricate braiding, with braids and plaits for your party hair there is something for everyone.
