3 WAYS TO WEAR IT: CHRISTMAS HAIR ACCESSORIES

Styling Trends

It’s not just the halls that need decking this Christmas. If you want to add some instant festive glam to a hairstyle, hair accessories are the quickest, easiest and most impactful way to do it. Ornaments in the shape of embellished clips, grosgrain bows and whimsy headbands are in, so start decorating your locks. Here’s some seasonal inspiration to get you started…

ON TREND ORNAMENTS

Before we introduce the hairspiration that will save you from bad hair days through December, it’s important to note how hair accessories became a trend all over again. The SS18 runways were aglow with the twinkle of jewel-encrusted crowns and clips, as seen at Dolce & Gabbana, Simone Rocha, Bottega Veneta and Fendi. With the start of spring mere months away, and party season giving us the perfect excuse to dress up, there’s no better time to start trialing this suits-everyone trend.

1. WITH THE BAND

Add a boho feel to your Christmas look with a beautiful, embellished headband. Place it over your head, so that it wraps around your forehead, and team with glamorous waves. To style this polished ‘do, section hair and twist lengths around the Pro Curl Conical tool, then gently brush the resulting curls to create a looser bend.

2. TUCK TO THE SIDE

Who says hair accessories have to be dainty? Make a statement with a stand-out clip that grabs all the attention at the Christmas party, and works perfectly with a LBD. After teasing your hair into a low ponytail, crown braid or long, loose waves, tuck the embellished accessory to one side of your head for an effortlessly-festive upgrade. Double up the dazzle by misting EIMI Shimmer Delight through your style, leaving you with locks as shiny as your favorite hair ornament.

3. TIE YOUR TRESSES

Polished plaits and ponytails are just the thing for a low-key party style, and we’re looking to the Peter Dundas Resort Spring 2018 catwalk for some inspiration. Crafted by none other than Wella Professionals Creative Director, Eugene Souleiman, this look featured grosgrain ribbon tied into perfect bows at the end of simple braids. It was care-free, cool and, above all, completely perfect for party girls. Add plenty of black eyeliner, EIMI Perfect Setting for texture, and create this dance-ready ‘do at your desk.
