Don't let a hair meltdown ruin your night! Stock your clutch with these five style lifesavers and you'll be ready to tackle any kind of mid-party hair emergency.
If you only have space for one styling product in your party handbag, a small hairspray like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Fix Design is your top pick. Hairspray is ultra-versatile and can be used in all kinds of styling situations – from giving a hairdo hold to smoothing down errant flyaways. Just be prepared to have other ladies in the bathroom ask to borrow it!
2. Bobby Pins
If your party ensemble includes an up-do, then having some spare bobby pins handy is a non-negotiable. A few extra pins added in during the night will help ensure your 'do stays put - even after a few hours of rocking out on the dance floor! Pins are also a great quick-fix for ladies with fringes, especially if they tend to lose their shape as the night wears on.
A hair elastic may seem unnecessary if you've decided to style your hair out for the night. However, warm air humidity or a breezy summer evening could see once-perfectly loose party locks suddenly looking less than pretty. In this instance, a single elastic can transform loose hair into a textured pony, a messy top knot or even a side braid.
4. Volume Powder
Voluminous hairstyles look fantastic during party season. The only risky part is they can start to lose their oomph throughout the evening. For a volume refresh, a sprinkle of volumising powder like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Super Dust will do the trick. Concentrate the product at the roots to give them a lift or enhance overall volume by working the powder through the lengths and ends.
5. Embellished Hair Accessory
So, it's a few hours into the night and your party hair isn't looking as great as it once did. Oh well! Instead of fighting to save the style, throw your hair into a basic bun or pony and then top it off with a statement hair accessory like a pin or clip. That way, even though your hairstyle is simple, the accessory makes it party-worthy.
