Staying in is the new going out, and while there may not be any parties this New Year’s Eve, it’s still an opportunity to don the sequins and celebrate the end of a crazy year. Martin Crean from MODE Hair chooses his three favourite party styles perfect for a glitzy night in to welcome 2021. If you are lucky enough to be working these days, these could be great for your clients who need some last minute glam for their Zoom parties. If you can’t work due to local restrictions, how about using this time to make an Insta live and showcasing the styles to your lovely clients? They will be thanking you for sure!
Style 1: Spray blow dry spray through the hair and blow dry. Then set on large rollers and leave to cool. Remove the rollers then gently brush through with a natural bristle bush giving gentle lift through the roots and a soft wave through the end. Spray with shine spray to finish.
Style 2: Spray a smoothing lotion through the hair then blow dry on a gentle heat and use a large round brush until hair is smooth. Then finish with irons for a silky finish. For added length, take a clip-in weft and apply to the occipital bone and brush hair to blend. A centre parting will add a dramatic finish, while a side parting will give a softer feel.
Style 3: Give short hair a glossy finish by blow-drying smooth with a dressing brush, then finish with irons for a super-sleek look. Spritz with shine spray for a glamorous finish.
