Glamorous party season hair needn't require hours of effort. These two hairstyles fit the brief - but the question is: do you go straight or curly?
The style: Ultra straight locks are currently trending – and when paired with an off-centre part the look is perfection. For straight off the catwalk sophistication, slick down the top section of hair with a wet look finish product like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Shower Shine. No flyways, no frizz, just chic, simple and sleek!
The look: Poker straight hair can appear a little harsh if it's not paired with the right styling. Add lightness to the look with statement accessories and softened make-up. Skip the eyeliner and opt instead for tones that will enhance the skin's natural glow. Your ultimate goal is to create a look that's clean and pretty.
The result: The overall effect of this hairstyle is a look that oozes understated glamour. On mid-length to long hair, this style is subtle yet polished – making it the perfect complement to a fun and playful party look.
Wild 'n Curly
The style: Reminiscent of the retro 80's perm, this curly hairstyle is ideal if you want a dramatic look with tonnes of volume. Don't worry about a precise part line: this hairstyle is all about movement, so let your hair go with the flow.
The look: Considered outfit choices will allow this statement hairstyle to shine. Oversized clothing will only detract from this look so opt instead for a fitted ensemble. As for jewellery – more is more! Think Studio 54-chic with bold earrings or a bohemian cuff.
The result: This look is a cinch for girls with naturally curly hair – a styling product like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Dual Stylers Bouncy & Tender Gel will help give your curls definition. For those with straight hair, get ready to give your curling tong a workout! It will take a little time, but the lioness-esque mane end result is worth it.
