3 Ways To Style Your Hair For Your Christmas Party

3 Ways To Style Your Hair For Your Christmas Party

The Christmas party invites are starting to roll in, so you need to plan your look! You’ve got your sequin outfit sorted and your Christmas red lipstick ready to boot – but you still need to figure out how to wear your hair. Don’t worry; I thought you might be short on inspiration, so we called our hair extension experts friends, Milk + Blush, for their advice on the best hairstyles to wear for the festive season – and I’ve paired the look with beauty product recommendations.

Whether you are dressing up for a work party or with your family and friends, they’ll be a chic hair and makeup look in this lineup that will take your Christmas look to the next level. Choose any of these three fail-safe looks, and you’re guaranteed to be the star of any party…



1. Classy Curls

Recreate the makeup look:

A nude lip and flushed cheeks, and glowy skin is the perfect recipe for a pared-back Hollywood Glamour look.

Product picks:
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Velvet Radical Lipstick – 304 – Beige Instinct
Yves Saint Laurent NU Dewy Mist
Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear Blush Stick – 02 – Daring Peach

Get the Hair:

A classic curl or wavy hair is timeless and always elegant. Curly hair adds a touch of classy Hollywood glamour that you can’t get with any other hairstyle; add a headband or hair clip for a bit of Christmas sparkle. Curls are a great option if your hair looks flat or lacks volume, as waves/curls give it a little extra bounce.

Model wears: Milk and Blush Blonde hair – 16″ Seamless clip-ins.



2. Sexy Sleek

Recreate the makeup look:

A graphic blue eyeliner liner, set off with a nude lips and glistening highlights, feels modern and chic.

Product picks:
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil – Deep End
Clarins Velvet Lip Perfector – 01 – Velvet Nude
bareMinerals Endless Glow Highlighter – Free

Get the Hair:

Straight hair is fail-safe! It always makes your outfit look clean and classy – the perfect paired-back style for a bold or vibrant outfit. To achieve the ultimate sleek straight hair, we recommend smoothing your flyways with a hair gel, foam or spray. To prevent damage and maintain the vibrancy of your colour, ensure you’re using heat protection as you achieve your dead straight locks.

Model wears: Milk and Blush 24″ Seamless clip-ins.


3. Power Pony

Recreate the makeup look:

A warm neutral smokey eye, finished with clean cat eyeliner and bronzed skin, is understated but sexy.

Product picks:
GUERLAIN Terracotta Bronzer
Benefit Roller Liner Liquid Eyeliner – Black
Clarins Ombre 4 Colour Eyeshadow Palette – 03 – Flame Gradation

Get the Hair:

Nothing says a modern Christmas look like a high pony. It is the perfect pairing with a tailored suit/ jacket and never fails to make your outfit look smart and clean-cut. To ensure all your baby hairs stay sleek and smooth, we’d recommend using hair gel on your ponytail to make it tighter and stay in place for longer. If you want to go one step further, we’d recommend swirling your front edges into a stylish design with hair gel.

Model wears: Milk and Blush Ponytail – 32 Human hair ponytail.
