One of the most important steps of preparing for a night out is getting your hairstyle right! If you don’t take your time with it, it will end up going flat or puffy (for my natural gals) after about an hour or so - def not a good look! If you don’t cut corners, your ‘do’ can really make you stand out in a crowd and keep BAE drooling for you all night.
So I have 9 tips to perfect your night out hairstyle!
1. Research/Prep Your Style
Why not try and be a little more adventurous and find something new to try from a tutorial on the internet? Pinterest and Youtube are great places for inspiration. Pick something a little different, such as a plait incorporated within your usual loosely curled hair.
2. Practice First
If you’ve chosen something new to try, make sure to have a quick attempt first to see if it will look good on you! The worst thing you can do would be to spend so much time getting it right, only for it to fall out when you get there!
3. Use A Good Conditioner
Using a good conditioner is really important to making your hair look shiny and soft, ready for your night. I have reviewed plenty that you can choose from! If your hair is really damaged, it might be worth looking at getting a deep conditioning treatment.
4. Tame Your Hair
Spritz some anti-frizz into your locks to help when you are styling! If you are natural like me, an oil serum would also help to keep your hair in place.
5. Back Comb
If you have straight hair- back-combing a little bit at the roots is a great way to create volume. Lift up sections of hair and back-comb underneath. Do not do it on the top! You want volume rather than a bed head!
If your natural- break out that pick and fluff and separate to create volume.
6. Use Extensions
Extensions are a brilliant way to add some serious glamour to your hairstyle. Virgin hair companies supply some fabulously thick hair extensions that come readily waved or straight.
7. Dry Hair Shampoo
Dry hair shampoo can be your surprising new best friend if you have straight or very loosely wavy/curly hair. As well as removing excess grease in your hair, this product can create even more volume for your ends!
8. Do Not Use Too Much Hairspray
As bomb as hairspray is, be sure to be sparing with it. Though you want your hair to stay put, you’ll still want it to bounce and have some life to it and not leave your hair with a nasty sticky residue. Besides, the less you use, the more you’ll be able to still smell your lovely conditioner!
9. Take Spare Bobby Pins With You!
No matter what style you chose, be sure to take some bobby pins with you just in case. If you’ve decided to put some of your hair up, the extra pins will be your Savior when it comes to dealing with flyaways. If all of your hair is down, they may come in handy if your bangs are irritating your face later on in the night.
