4 quick party hairstyles to rock this Christmas
Party season is in full swing, Christmas is just around the corner, and a new year is about to start. Time seems to move faster in December, and with so many dinners, office parties and holiday festivities this month, it’s essential to have some quick party hairstyles in your beauty arsenal. When you’re busy, there’s nothing better than knowing how to look fab in 10 minutes or less.
Here are a couple of quick party hairstyles so you can look your best while you party all night. They’re simple, easy to follow, and most importantly, quick, so you don’t have to spend your entire holiday season fighting with a flat iron.
All curled up
This quick party hairstyle will take you from the office to the office party without missing a beat. The best part? Just one product is all you need.
Our best-selling Curl Jelly Scrunching Jelly manages frizz and adds definition without any crunch. All you need to do is apply evenly damp hair, scrunching from mid lengths to ends, then scrunch dry with a diffuser. Flip your hair over and scrunch all the way to the roots for some extra volume. If you have a bit more time, you can air dry your hair for a more natural look.
This works on all hair types - from straight to coily curls - so it really is the easiest party hairstyle in the book.

Sleek high pony
One of the classic quick party hairstyles is a sleek pony. Not only is this look perfect for a Christmas night out with your friends, but it can work for a family Christmas dinner, too.
The key to a high pony lies in volume. Flip your head over and brush your hair in the same direction as your roots. Want an extra lift? Spritz our Wonderlift Vegan Thicker, Fuller Plumping Spray on your roots for some more volume.
Then, separate your hair into two sections: the top half (parting your hair from ear to ear), and the bottom half. Using a comb (or your hands - we aren’t picky!), brush the top half into a small pony, using a hair tie to secure it. Pull on a few strands for extra texture. Once the top is in place, brush the bottom half up and combine for a fuller, thicker pony.
Finish with a few pumps of our Miracle Worker Vegan Smooth Serum to banish flyaways.
Curls gone loose
Loose curls just scream glamour. Whether you’re a curly girl looking to flatten your curls for once, or you have hair straight as bone and want to shake things up, this quick party hairstyle is classic, chic, and effortless.
The trick lies in the product. Too much and the curls won’t look relaxed, and too little and they might fall out.
That’s not a problem with our Crème de Curl Vegan Control Cream. Just apply it to wet hair and it will give your curls a natural hold that won’t bog it down. It hydrates, moisturises, and de-frizzes hair. Best of all, it also protects hair from heat styling.
For gorgeous loose curls, apply our Crème de Curl and then dry. Then, wrap big strands of hair loosely around the tool of your choice (we like a flat iron or a wide barrel wand). Only go about halfway up your hair for a more relaxed look. Hold for about 10 seconds, then let it drop. Spritz lightly with hair spray once done.
Smooth and shiny
Straight and glossy hair without heat damage? Yes please! This quick party hairstyle is a must.
The smoothest hair starts in the shower. Begin with a moisturising shampoo. Don't use too much depending on your hair length. Massage it into your scalp and rinse to the ends. Follow this up with conditioner.
Next, use a blow dry serum for salon quality volume. Apply evenly to damp hair and comb through. Blow dry as usual, using a round barrel brush. Then, if need be, straighten your hair in small sections.
Party season is no problem with these quick and easy hairstyles. Now, you can spend more time with those that matter: your friends, family, and a glass of prosecco in your hand.
