Christmas party hairstyles: straight vs. curly

Keeping it simple can often be enough to make you look your best. So, stop looking for elaborate hairstyles this holiday season and choose from the eternal classics-curly or straight!

Poker straight

The style

Here, a side or centre part divides sleek and perfectly straight tresses. A variation is to hold back hair with some gel to appear as if you just walked off the ramp. This also ensures there are no flyaways and no frizz - just you looking picture perfect!

The look

Soften up the look with an accessory that is funky yet impressive and dab on some girly make-up. One way to do this is to go for the natural look minus the eyeliner. Focus on enhancing your inner glow to look sophisticated without appearing formal.

The result

Elegant and chic, especially when you have a lob or long tresses. Make sure the outfit you choose complements the look without making you look strict. Stay away from figure-hugging outfits with this hairstyle to prevent going overboard with the sleek and straight! This look is best when it stays subtle and simple. A good flat iron and a bit of L'Oréal Professional's Wet Domination gel will do the trick every time.

Wild 'n curly

The style

Go for this throwback to the classic 80s perm if drama and glam with plenty of volume is what you seek. Keeping it casual does the trick here. Use your imagination and your hair's natural length, volume, and texture to create this retro look.

The look

A colourful palette when it comes to outfits is what does justice to this look. Flowing and roomy items of clothing are a strict no-no when it comes to picking the right outfits for this curly look. Ransack your wardrobe for fitted pieces with an emphasis on texture. However, when it comes to jewellery, do not hold back and don as much as you can get away with! The perfect accessories would be eye-catching earrings or a cuff leaning towards the Bohemian.

The result

Don't despair if you don't have naturally curly or wavy hair. It just means you will have to spend a little more time getting your curls to stay in place. Make use of L'Oréal Professional's range of Hollywood Wave products to get those bouncy, voluminous curls that you've always wanted and get ready to bask in the warmth of the holiday season as you make merry!
