Three simple (but super-chic) party hairstyles

It’s party season and you know what that means. It’s time to get glammed up, of course. Glitter on the lids, a bright red lip and a hairdo that turns heads. To help with the latter, we’re showing you three simple hairstyles that look incredibly chic—and are actually doable at home. Heat up your tools and hit play.

The glam high pony

While usually reserved for pilates class, the ponytail gets the red-carpet tick of approval when it’s slicked back and sitting high atop your head. Long-haired girls, this one’s definitely for you—don’t forget to add earrings.

Step 1: Brush hair with a GHD Paddle Brush.

Step 2: Warm a hazelnut size of Bumble and bumble Sumo Tech in your hands. Working in sections, apply Sumo Tech at the roots of the hair and comb through. Repeat on all sections.

Step 3: Pull hair back into a high ponytail, combing out any of the bumps. Fasten with a MECCA MAX No-Snag Fabric Hair Tie and spray with GHD Final Fix Hairspray.

Step 4: Comb out any remaining bumps and smooth down baby hairs and flyaways with Sumo Tech. Heat the roots with a hairdryer to melt the product in and create a super sleek effect.

Step 5: Wrap a piece of hair around the tie and secure with a hair pin. Tug the ponytail to get it nice and tight.

Step 6: Spray with hairspray for extra hold—and don’t forget to accessorise!

HALF UP, HALF DOWN

Perfect for medium to long hair, the top knot has become a favourite on the festival circuit and is a great way to disguise those in-between wash days. While a tiny little loop may sound straightforward—we’ve all struggled to actually get it right. Get the It-girl bun once and for all with these simple steps.

Step 1: Brush hair with a GHD Paddle Brush.

Step 2: Section the hair and spray each section with GHD Curl Hold Spray. Using the GHD Curve Classic Curl Tong curl the hair by wrapping away from the face. Spray the curl with GHD Final Fix Hairspray and let cool. Repeat working around the head.

Step 3: Brush out the curls with a paddle brush and massage Bumble and bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil into the hair to smooth frizz and add shine. Shake out the curls, spraying them with Bumble and bumble Thickening Dry Spun Finish to add some texture.

Step 4: Add Bumble and bumble Prêt-à-Powder to the roots and gently tease around the crown.

Step 5: Take a section of the hair from above the ears and pull it back like you’re going to do a ponytail. Twist the hair and wrap it on top of your head to form the bun and secure with a MECCA MAX No-Snag Fabric Hair Tie. Lightly pinch and tug at sections to take away the “just-done” look. Spray with hairspray and you’re done.

How to curl a bob

If you’ve gone the chop this year, you’re certainly not alone. It’s the A-list look of the season with Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski and Margot Robbie (among others) all trading their long tresses for chic, chin-grazing dos. Want to amp it up for party season? Just add some texture, a deep side part and a touch of attitude.

Step 1: Apply Bumble and bumble All-Style Blow Dry and Bumble and bumble Surf Foam Spray Blow Dry to the roots of the hair and blow dry.

Step 2: Section the hair and spray with GHD Curl Hold Spray. Using the GHD Classic Curl Wand curl the hair by wrapping away from the face. Spray the curl with GHD Curl Hold Spray and let cool. Repeat working around the head.

Step 3: Shake the curls out and spray with Bumble and bumble Thickening Dry Spun Finish and throw hair over to the side.

Step 4: Tuck one side of the hair behind your ear and voilà!
