Using a medium-sized round brush, helping to create volume and textured loose waves. This Christmas hairstyle took around 45 minutes, from £19.50.

The second festive party hair look from our Baldwin Street hairstylists is a 15-Minute Hair-up, and the example below was styled using British Hair hairspray, as well as British Hair Style Dust, to give texture and hold, but also allowing the hair to move and to be restyled.

The lightly-curled hair was worked with hair straighteners and left to fall naturally, with French plaits added on both sides then worked into a smooth bun for the client.

Adding soft curls can give a more glamourous, volumised style for an office party, or it can be kept sleeker to give a more sophisticated overall look.

Our classic 15-Minute Hair-Up is part of the Styled To Perfection menu, and is available for only £15.

The third festive party hairstyle from our team is called Stuck On You, and involves adding hair wefts into the hair. These don’t require application using heated tools, so the integrity and condition of the hair is fully maintained.

Each hair weft costs £17.50, or we can re-stick an existing weft for £5 each.

The hair wefts are from brand name Raccoon Hair, made of 100% human hair, giving you the ability to straighten, curl, blow-dry and style as you wish.
