Christmas Party Hairstyles: Straight Vs Curly

  • v/s"
Match Straight Vs Curly

Two incredibly chic hairstyles, but very different in style. Both straight and poker hair have been trending this season, but which will you be sporting at your Christmas party? We're here to help you decide!

Poker Straight Hair

The look: Sleek, straight and styled to perfection, this understated look is one that just keeps coming back in fashion and is perfectly styled on mid-length to long hair.

Achieve it: The aim of the game is to make sure your hair is poker straight, without a single hint of frizz or flyaways in sight, so make sure your hair is well conditioned and use a serum to keep it in place. Opt for a perfectly central parting or side parted hair and give your poker straight hair the added wet look effect for added sophistication.

A note from the editor: Keep the look minimal and understated by toning down the makeup and keeping accessories to an all-time minimum. Keep your look polished, feminine and effortlessly stylish.

Wild Waves

The look: Those of you who are looking to pump up the volume this season, these wild waves are for you. These 80s retro curls are just the look for a fun-filled Christmas party look.

Achieve it: Those of you with naturally straight hair will have to commit to creating your curls with curling tongs or a flat iron. Create tight curls and brush them out with a paddle brush to create further volume. Don't forget to use a texturising powder and a hair spray to keep those locks curly all night long. This is a wild look, so don't over think the styling too much and keep that side parting as messy and swept over as possible.

A note from the editor: As this is a statement hairstyle, you'll want to keep your hair and makeup toned down as not to overdo it. Invest in a figure hugging black or navy blue dress. Velvet is still all the rage, but don't go overboard on textures and colors.
