How to achieve the perfect party look

This party season, we’ve teamed up with fellow British brand Aspinal of London to bring you expert advice on party prep for the modern woman.

Hair and accessories are often overlooked when getting ready, but we know they can make or break a look, and ‘tis the season to be creative!

Together, we’ve created some headturning looks, no matter what the event.


Black-tie Ball

Perhaps the most formal and glamourous of events deserves the most time and care, which is why we recommend a pretty up-do, such as intricate, plaited hair. To best achieve this look, use our Big, Bold & Beautiful Dry Instant Volumising Spray to create body, and Reassuringly Firm Session Hold Hairspray which will keep even the highest up-do in place into the early hours. The perfect accessory to pair with your stunning outfit and hair is Aspinal’s gorgeous range of fine jewellery earrings. From pearls to amethyst or even diamonds, each pair will be a lifelong treasure.


Office Party

It’s the event you’ve been looking forward to for months, think sparkles and fun hair. The style we’ve chosen for this event is wild waves, which is all about shaking out a more formal hairstyle: spray Beyond the Beach Texture Spray into your dry hair and tousle into waves. This will help you achieve the effortless style of beachy waves, without even leaving your desk! Our top accessory for an office do has to be Aspinal’s leather handbags range, where you’ll find one for every occasion - the delicate detailing and bold colour combinations are sure to make you stand out from your colleagues.


10 Minutes to Get Ready

In a rush and need a quick style that can be achieved in a few minutes or on the way to an event? Try opting for a messy bun; effortless in every sense, this quick and easy up-do just needs some Surprisingly Strong Extra Hold Hairspray which can be taken with you in a chic and practical cosmetics case. Perfect for taking things on the go, be sure to keep all your favourite products with you for any touch-ups!


Family Party

A simple style fairs best for this type of event, so as not to shock the relatives! We recommend a sleek ponytail, using our Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm to prime your hair, then creating volume and lift with Abundantly Bouncy Volumising Mousse, finishing off with Quite Frankly Flawless Finishing Polish which will keep things sleek and together. To finish off this flawless look, and add a modern twist, tie a silk scarf around and secure at the nape of your neck to make a headband, or even wrap around the ponytail.


No matter what the event entails, we hope our top picks helped inspire some show stopping hair ideas that will express your individuality. Cheers to that!
