The Party Makeup Series: Hair

Although I’m all about the makeup when it comes to getting ready for a party, on the odd occasion I’ll go out all and jazz up my hair for the special event. For most, this is the norm, however I usually stick to my natural straight style thanks to my track record of ending up in a heated fight with my styler only to be the one left with the scars. Today however I’ve embraced the tools and added a cheeky curl to my tresses to bounce around whilst I attempt to own the dance floor. Simple and easy to create here is my take on foolproof curls.

Considering my hair is fine, I still prefer to add a curl to freshly washed locks as when the second day rolls into town it tends to show too many tell tale greasy signs. On damp hair before blowing drying I spritz in a heat protectant curling spray to provide care and hold. One of my favs is the KMS California Freeshape Hot Flex Spray as this helps to look after my locks whilst encouraging my curls to stick around for longer then 25 minutes. For a bit of grit I opt for a texture power as this gives the best finish without weighing my hair down. The Schwarzkopf Got2B Powerder’ful Volumising Styling Powder* is a light dust that I pop into my hand first then scrunch through the lengths and roots to give a bit more volume and lift at the roots.

For the curls themselves it’s got to be the Babyliss Pro Porcelain Conical Wand – putting the hot pink colour to one side this heats up to the variable temperate you decide and creates effortless waves that look soft and natural. Keeping things messy is key so I pick up different sections and sizes to give the style to more movement and an overall lived in finished. When I’m all done I spray in some of the Sachajuan Hair Perfume* as not only does this give an injection of shine, it add a soft fragrances that lingers throughout the day.

    These curls are so cute, genuinely perfect for parties. I find because my hair is quite long they drop out within minutes! I use got2b styling powder on the roots though, definitely does give it a bit of oomph :)

    The curls look perfect and look at your hair… soft…..xoxoxo….:)

  • Nice curls girl! I don’t like the Powderful, leaves hair feeling coppery, and weird! I would use dry shampoo instead! It’s great at giving lift, but I just hate the feeling!

    • The new Ruth Crily Dry Shampoo is undetectable in your hair yet still helps to give a bit of hold and texture :) xx

  • This is such a lovely look! Want to try out that Schwarzkopf powder for sure!

    • With a little bit of texture spray and a slight curl the next day it makes such a difference!xx

  • I wasn’t too sure when I tried out the Schwarzkopf powder, but I think I may need to give it another try x
