For most people the office Christmas party or the many other holiday events during the winter season are the fanciest and most important events of the year.
With that in mind you really want to make sure you not only look great, but you feel great when you walk in that room for the big party.
So we want to help you:
- Decide on a holiday look that is right for you
- Show you how to create that look yourself on the big day.
Your first decision
Have a stylist do Your hair?
Do it yourself
Get me an appointment with my stylist!
For many women the easiest thing to do is to visit the hair dresser the day of the event. And while this is great if you can get an appointment and can afford the visit, you still need to come with a plan for what you want. And you have to remember the more precise you are the better it is for both you and the stylist.
You have to remember that you're probably not the only appointment that your hairdresser has that day for a party look or updo, and she may be in a rush or you may be in to see her way too early in the day for your evening event.
So again the best thing to do is to come with a plan. So even if you're going to see a hairdresser for your look, take the ideas from this article to help you get the best use of her time, and the best look for you and your style.
Check list for your appointment:
Be On Time or Early! (even if you have to wait)
Bring multiple pictures of One hairstyle you have decided on. Remember it won't be exact anyway, so don't get set on the exact look. But bring it so the stylist has an idea of what you are after and it can guide her in what to do for you.
Be realistic in your choice. If you have short to medium hair, that long hair up do is not going to work, so try to be realistic, or book a longer appointment and bring some clip in hair extensions. (More on that later in this article)
Do it yourself and do it right!
For those that are either pressed for time or money, this guide can help you to create those salon quality looks at home very quickly and easily. Follow the tips and tricks to make getting the best look for your hair easy.
