December is creeping closer, bringing with it all the festive parties and events. Whether your soirée is a sophisticated meal, drinks with your girls or a lavish party which will see you dancing til dawn you can never go wrong with a big bouncy blow-dry with some soft curls.
If you’re heading out for a few Christmas drinks with the girls after work you’ll need a sophisticated hairstyle that you can easily do in the office bathroom before you pop out.
You can use your hair straighteners such as the new mini cordless straighteners by Carmen by Samantha to create subtle volume and wave by keeping the heat at a medium setting.
The Carmen by Samantha cordless rechargeable hair straightener (rrp £119.99), is perfect to take with you to work or in your handbag as it has a handy heat resistant case and the straighteners are a small travel size so perfect for doing your hair on the go. The rechargeable battery provides 25 minutes use from each charge so the perfect amount of time to do your hair, there are also three temperature settings allowing you to choose the best heat option for your hair type. The straightener features the latest technology in the form of its tourmaline coated plates which emit negative ions to eliminate frizz and leave your hair very shiny.
This Carmen by Samantha range is in collaboration with Sam from TOWIE and is a new range by Carmen also including a hands-free hairdryer, Salon Glamour Styler, and Salon Glamour Curls which is a super easy hair curling tool so if you know a beauty and TOWIE lover take a look at the range for Christmas presents as they are available from 7th December 2015.
To create your curls work from the front to the back in inch wide sections, it’s so much easier to do this with a cordless straightener (especially if you normally get wrapped up in cords) and also handy if your office bathroom doesn’t have plug sockets available (just charge the straightener under your desk for a while during the day).
Once the straightener is ready, take each section of hair, press it shut at the top of the section then fold the hair over the straightener towards you then pull the straightener out and away from your head to create subtle waves. Repeat for each section. In case my description is hard to imagine I have included a picture above so hopefully you can see what I mean.
Once each strand is curled, you can secure to the top of your head with a crocodile clip. Leave your hair to cool while you do your make-up and once you’re ready to walk out the door: take all clips out, brush through with a natural bristle brush or a tangle teezer if you have extensions, spray with some strong hold hairspray. And there you have it you’re good to go.
