Party Season Hair Prep Plan

The end of year invitations are rolling in, so here's what you need to do to get your hair ready to party!

Cocktail dress? Check! Heels? Check! Sparkly clutch? Check! With the countdown to party season truly upon us, there's never been a better time to whip your hair into shape. With all the primping, preening that the season entails, your goal at this point is to prepare your hair so that it's ready to withstand endless days of party-worthy hairstyles. Let's get ready to party!

Update your colour

Perfecting the hair colour you want to rock this party season should be done at least a week ahead of the first soiree. (Even longer if you're after a dramatic colour change.) Don't forget to follow up at home with a colour care protection product. Between party days, we recommend using the to nourish coloured locks.

Perfect your cut

Choosing the right haircut for party season needs to be a considered decision. You'll no doubt want a look that's polished and chic when styled. But if you have multiple events on your social calendar, you'll also want a versatile cut that will work with a variety of different party ensembles. So do you go for one of current trending looks, such as a classic bob or ultra-long locks? We recommend chatting to your stylist and heed their advice about which look will work best for you and flatter your face shape.

Get inspired and organised

So many events – and so many hairstyles! If you're planning on styling your own hair for a number of different occasions, you'll need to build up a repertoire of different party hairstyles. Look online and in magazines for ideas that will suit your new colour and cut and be sure to practice recreating the look well ahead of time. That way, on the day you'll know precisely how long it will take you to get ready and what tools and products you'll need to pull off the look.

Prepare a party styling kit

Speaking of products – when you're styling your hair, there are certain products that you will rely on over and over to help you create a party-worthy look.
