This glamorous wave look is like a little black dress of party hairstyles. It goes with every outfit, suits any occasion and oozes luxury. Headmasters Creative Ambassadors, Clare Hansford, Sian Quinn, and Danielle Louis reveal their top tips for achieving the perfect party hair.


This blow dry works best with a layered haircut, adding body through the back and framing the face at the front, you will get volume and bounce that will last much longer. Your stylist will be able to cut your hair to provide the most flattering cut bespoke to your face shape. 


You can enhance your bouncing blow dry even more with multi-toned colour, having a bespoke balayage service will not only brighten up your skin in the colder months but it will create more texture through your hair and show off more movement. It’s a great way to ensure you really make an entrance at any party or work event this year.


To create the look your stylist will prep your hair with products to ensure hold. After this, your stylist will take smaller sections and use a ghd large round brush to blow dry your hair. Sian’s top tip is to allow the hair to set and cool before getting dressed up. 



Excessive alcohol consumption will dehydrate not only your skin but your hair. It is important to remember that dehydration can cause hair to become dry brittle and weak and over time this can cause hair to split and snap. To prevent your hair from looking and feeling dry Sian suggests using a deep conditioning treatment weekly during winter and the festive season. Sian’s personal favourite is the Olaplex Hair Repair Treatment Kit, a nourishing set of four haircare heroes, ideal for breakage-prone hair.

Often party season can also be a time when you’re using heated tools such as wands, tongs, and straighteners more than usual. Hair that has been over-styled will visibly show signs of split ends, so it’s generally a good idea to invest in a heat-protectant spray and use it every time you style. It might also be a good idea to book a Headmaster’s healthy hair micro trim (price from £55). The cut is minimal, which allows the stylist to remove any split ends and breakage while maintaining the hair length. 


 Headmasters are renowned for creating beautiful, confidence-boosting hair in their 54 salons located across the UK.
