1. THE GLAMOUR WAVE

Classic for a reason, the glamour wave is a failsafe party style that’s equal parts low-maintenance and totally impactful. To create flawless curves that last as long as the party, preparation is everything. First, layer EIMI Natural Volume Mousse through damp hair to help your style stay in place, then spritz with EIMI Thermal Image and roughly blowdry your hair. Use the Style Iron to create the waves, holding it vertically as you twist it through the lengths of your hair, which will create these slightly undone, elegant ribbons. Finish by spraying EIMI Oil Spritz into the palms of your hands, then lightly press through the lengths for frizz-defying, glossy shine.

2. THE GRIP AND GO

Get experimental with bobby pins. Even on the red carpet, the A-list are using these everyday accessories to decorate half-up ‘dos and faux undercuts. To get this look, create undone waves and add lived-in texture with a misting of EIMI Dry Me. Then, position pins in a triangle shape, making sure you spray with EIMI Mistify Me Strong first for grip. One extra misting when they’re in will have your clients set for the night.

Bigger is always better when it comes to party hair. Keep that in mind when clients ask you for a braid with a glam twist. This loose fishtail is perfect because it boasts plenty of body, which you can recreate by prepping hair with INVIGO Volume Boost Bodifying Shampoo. Follow with the Crystal Mask, which conditions the hair without weighing it down, then work the Bodifying Foam through damp mid-lengths and style. Bouncy braid, sorted.

Simple yet statement-making, this low-slung pony starts with body at the crown, which you can achieve by gently backcombing the roots and setting with EIMI Mistify Me Light. Secure hair at the nape of the neck, leaving a few strands free at the front. Then, work a small amount of EIMI Perfect Me through hair for heat protection and use the Pro-Curl Tong to add voluminous curls to the ponytail and tendrils.

5. THE GLASSY LOOK

Glass hair always turns heads – especially if it’s icy blonde. Look to the hair-smoothing powers of the INVIGO Nutri-Enrich collection to get this look. First, wash and treat with the Deep Nourishing Shampoo and Deep Nourishing Conditioner, then spritz EIMI Thermal Image from root to tip to protect against heat styling and give a hydrated feeling. Blowdry, then slowly glide the Pro-Straight Iron through the lengths, ensuring you take fine 1cm wide sections to avoid over-straightening. Mist with EIMI Glam Mist for dazzling shine.
