Get the party look  

Do your clients need a relaxed yet glam party look for upcoming occasions? We have just the thing. Clare Hansford and the Headmasters artistic team styled the hair for the Kingston University BA Fashion Graduate AW23 Show for L’Oréal Professionnel. The look was smooth and sleek with a twist… which Clare, a creative ambassador for Headmasters, says is always the answer for a party. So, we thought we’d explore the look more closely:  

The party look 

Hair is brushed back off the face with a strong side parting to create a sleek look at the front, but left loose at the back:  


  1. Spray the roots with L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Pli athenrough dry, blowing the hair back off the face
  2. Mix L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Extreme Splash with a little water to loosen up. Comb into the parting. Brush the hair back for a clean look
  3. Pin the lengths behind the ears and spray with L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Beach Waves for texture
  4. Tousle and shape the lengths with your fingers. Finish with a little L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Liss Control through the ends    

Pro tip: Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to apply L’Oréal Professionnel Curl Expression Crème in Gelee to clean up the hairline. Use L’Oréal Professionnel Curl Expression Curl Reviver (caring water mist) to define curls, twisting gently with your fingers. This also nourishes the hair!
