Hottest Hairstyles for the Party Season

Party season is fast approaching. Hairdresser John Azzi takes us through four key looks that will give you instant street cred.

With work Christmas parties and get togethers just around the corner, it's the perfect excuse to update your winter weary locks. 

The Low Pony

The low pony is perfect when you want to banish a bad hair day. Secured low at the nape of the neck, this is a sleek and polished look that's perfect for play. Divide hair into a centre part and use wax or mousse to smooth hair and create a sleek, well-groomed finish.

Fuss Free Waves

Big fuss free waves instantly give you an edgier look. Start by setting your hair with rags, piping or a straightener to create curls and then brush through with fingers or a bristle brush to leave you with beautiful unstructured waves.

Pastel Colour

When celebrities start experimenting with hair colour, there's a follow through effect to the salon. Lately the likes of Nicole Richie and Kelly Osbourne have been loving pink and purple coloured hair. If you want to try something new for a special occasion or an edgier look, these shades are ideal on bleached/blonde hair as the colour is applied on top and gradually fades as it washes out.

Long Locks

Overall blonde, copper and strawberry shimmery highlights look stunning for longer locks. Wear hair in a deep side parting with softly layered lengths and use a conditioning treatment recommended by your hairdresser to keep hair looking shiny. While catwalks and celebrities can dictate the trends of the season, it's important to choose a look that suits you. Go for a style, cut and colour that works with your face shape, colouring and lifestyle.
