Mark shares his tips on creating fabulous party hair to get you into the Christmas spirit.
- Fuelled by celebrities wigs and hair pieces are at the fore front of fashion at the moment and make for the most dramatic makeover. Hair pieces, ponytails and false fringes create a stunning new look in an instant.
- For a quick fix, dry shampoo sprays are readily available in shops and will take your hair from the office to cocktail hour. This refreshes the roots but also adds volume and is great preparation for glamorous ‘up’ styles.
- To add some sparkle, hair ornaments or jewellery are big news this season. For the ultimate romantic look take inspiration from the girls of Downton Abbey. Try a soft tousled chignon with delicate jewels running through it.
- Go through a hair detox, reviving your style with a cleansing crème with detox properties, it’s almost like a facial for your hair. Do this once a week to remove all the build-up of product and residues, resulting in freshly cleansed hair ready for the next party.
