Formal night: find your best hairstyle for an unforgettable night

You've got the dress, the make-up, the shoes...now all you need to decide on for your winter formal night is which hairstyle will set you apart from the rest and make your night truly special! This year's formal season has a decidedly sophisticated side to it.

Straight, shiny half-up hair

Keep your hair down, but avoid it getting in your eyes during a special slow dance by opting for a half-up style. Not only that, but you can add an unexpected element to the look by creating a side part and ensuring your hair is super straight and shiny. For a professional finish, ask your local L'Oréal Professionnel hair stylist about the Steampod, a high-tech steam hair straightening iron that gives long-lasting smoothness and shine with minimum damage.

Beautiful ballerina bun

A great way to show off your long neck and statement jewellery is with a chic ballerina bun, and thankfully it's really simple to achieve! Smooth your hair into a high ponytail with a comb or bristle brush, then twist and wrap it around itself, securing invisibly with a couple of bobby pins. Make sure your look stays in place all night long with a high-shine hairspray like the iconic , a favourite among professional catwalk stylists for its lightweight yet long-lasting hold.

Elegant low chignon

They key to this stunning hairstyle is the high shine and glamour. Creating a low chignon is simple enough, but for maximum shine, the is the ultimate serum for smooth, shiny hair, even naturally frizzy and rebellious locks! Finish with a touch of for a slick, long-lasting, glossy finish. Complete the look with some jaw-dropping earrings and you really will be the belle of the ball.

Enjoy your formal night with unforgettable hair!
