#1 - 80’s Style Ponytail

The 80’s hair ponytail is an ultra-sexy pony that’s all about volume and glamour. Using a 38mm curling barrel tong, curl your hair in sections in the same direction! The key is to not touch the curl and let it set. Once cooled, take a wide tooth comb to brush loosely through the curls to turn them into sexy waves. Finish off with a spritz of light hairspray.

#5 - Edgy Side Braid

A side braid looks simple from afar but the braid adds an edge to any outfit. Add some volume and texture to the hair before braiding. All you need to do is flip your hair upside down and blow it out with the Digital Sensor Hairdryer. The digital sensor will maintain a hair safe 70C  to reduce hair damage . Then add a little bit of dry shampoo to the roots to add some extra volume and texture. 


#6 - Romantic Half Up, Half Down Hair

Ultra-romantic, half up, half down style, this is great when you’re a hair down girl or heading out for a Christmas date. It’s  so easy to create with a 25mm curling tong, the size of the curls are not too small or too big, it’s perfect for a relaxed look. Dress it up by adding a crystal or gemstone headband to compliment what you’re wearing. 


#7 - The Voluminous Flick    

Christmas party hair can be as easy as adding a themed headband or Santa hat. Create this voluminous flicked out hair easily with a rotating hot air styler then add your cute Santa hat and you’re good to go. Quick and easy for those desk to party situations where you don’t have a lot of time on your hands!


#8 - Messy Bedhead Waves

Channel your inner Beyonce dance moves and messy bedhead waves to last all night long!

Here’s an easy tutorial to get this look using our fave Smooth & Wave automatic 2-in-1 curler and straightener styler. After curling, style your messy bedhead waves by running your fingers through your locks to break them up. To get that tousled look, spray some dry texturising spray to your hair and roots. Now you can head out the door in true Beyonce style!
