December 2015

Sinêad Kelly, award-winning London hairdresser, picks out five hairstyles perfect for your Christmas party

The Christmas festivities kicked off early this year, with houses trimmed in November and shops selling out of gifts before you can say the words Black Friday.

Starting early isn’t all bad; it gives us more time to pick out our outfits for the Christmas Party and decide how we’re going to wear our hair.

If you’re looking for a little inspiration, here’s the Sinéad Kelly London guide to the top 5 party styles of 2015.

1: The simple chignon

A classic look for a classy evening.  Partnered with a drop-waist dress and heeled boots this simple style is simply stunning.

2: The mermaid wave 

Perfect for those with long hair looking to create a glam, red carpet look. The mermaid curls are well loved by celebrities including Amanda Seyfried and Naomi Harris and it’s not hard to see why. Dare to wear your curls with a low V cut dress.

3: The plaited bun

Sophisticated chic for those evenings filled with fizz and fancy canapés.  Choose a thick or thin plait to wrap around a high bun for a style that will see you into the early hours.  A floor-length dress with diamante stud earrings will complete this look.

4: The bushy ponytail

Add the wow factor to your girl’s night out with the ultimate ponytail.  Worn with a low back dress this volumised pony will stay in one place throughout the night, and away from your face on the dance floor.

5: The soft plait

 This hairstyle will look effortless but will guarantee to be noticed. Use all the hair in a soft hold down the middle to complement a high-necked dress or crisp long sleeved shirt.
