It is party season, which means one thing… glamorous, chic and sophisticated hair. Whether it’s polished waves or an ultra-chic day to night look you’re after, Sassoon Salon Leeds, Creative Director Gareth Vance gives you some festive inspiration for your tresses this Christmas. Just remember to pack your mistletoe…
Chic Pony: Perfect for desk to dance floor, “a sleek low ponytail with a deep side parting, exudes chic, ladylike elegance,” says Gareth.
How to achieve: Pull hair tightly into a low pony, which sits just on the nape of the neck and secure with an invisible band. Take a small section of hair out of the ponytail and wrap it around the band, securing with a pin. To finish, spray hair with a fine mist of Sassoon Professional Spray Shine (£17.00), for high definition shine and an immaculate finish.
Luxe Locks:Special occasion hair is all about polish and shimmering shine. “For contemporary glamour at its best, enhance the look with a low side parting and comb it all the way through for an impeccable finish,” says Gareth.
How to achieve: Creating volume starts before blow drying. A lightweight styling mousse such as Sassoon Professional Edit Body (£19.10) will give body and lift to your look. Once dry, wrap small sections of hair around a styling wand, securing each curl with a flat clip in a finger wave pattern. Let the hair cool while secured in this ‘S’ shape to lock in the wave.
The golden rule for glamorous hair? Prepare, with these cold-weather must-haves:
