We all know what winter can mean for our hair: dull, dry strands that tend to feel brittle and fragile in cold weather. Fortunately, there are a few simple solutions to help your locks look their best for the party season. Read on for our expert tips.
Ask the professionals
We all like to snuggle up when it's cold out, but warm, dry indoor heating paired with freezing winter temperatures can play havoc on your hair. Lengths become more fragile, taking on a dull, lifeless appearance, while ends can begin to split as a result of excessive dryness. Adapting your haircare routine for winter is a step in the right direction, but going the extra mile and heading to a salon is guaranteed to give your hair - and your mood - a boost in time for the party season. You wouldn't think twice about treating your skin to a pampering mask to perk up your complexion, so rejuvenate your hair with a dose of intensely nourishing Nutrifier for softness and shine. It's Christmas - treat yourself.
Get your stylist to update your look
When it comes to making sure your hair looks its best, a flattering cut and style is just as important as using the right styling or pampering products. If you're looking to feel like a movie star this Christmas, your stylist knows all the right tricks of the trade. Streampod technology helps long hair achieve an on-trend poker-straight look, while the Tecni.Art range of styling tools and products are ideal for perfecting Hollywood-inspired vintage curls.
Looking to reshape your hair for the holiday season? No need to go for the full Halle Berry crop - simply trimming a few centimeters from the ends can be enough to give your look a more modern twist. If you're feeling a little more daring, why not try this season's hottest trend: the fringe? This look is notoriously tricky to pull off, so ask your haircare professional to help decide on the right length and thickness for your face shape. With all these options to choose from, you're sure to end up celebrating the New Year in style.
What about accessories?
For a luxurious look this season, add a touch of disco glamour with a headband or scarf in warm tones. A delicate barrette or clip are also great ways to bring a little sophistication to your New Year outfit. For the finishing touch, a liberal dusting of sparkles - rhinestones, sequins or glitter - and a festive, jewel-toned colour palette and voilà: an outfit to end 2016 with a bang!
