“The party season is on it’s way and just like our clients, we could not be more excited in the salon,” says from Philip Bell, Ishoka Hair and Beauty. “2020 was the year of the no-go celebrations and party styles weren’t high on the agenda. So, this year we are excited to experience the busy salon atmosphere; also to transform our clients and get in the spirit of glamour for every occasion and celebration.”
“This year party styles are all about being gorgeous and glamorous, whatever the style and whatever the occasion, with clients going all out when it comes to their hair,” adds Philip.
The Glam Look
“This look epitomises the luxurious, sexy and voluminous style of the season. Create your very own glamorous hairstyle by following some simple steps. Start by setting the hair in sections on heated rollers, which will create the base of the volume. If you need some extra help for volume, place a couple of clip in extensions just behind the crown to boost the fullness and shape. Once the rollers are removed, backcomb the back section from behind the ear with a fine comb. Start pinning the pieces and sections of hair at the crown, building the hair to create the high section. Once the back beehive is created, pull some smooth sections over the top for a sleek finish.
The Daring Look
“This party look is very on trend at the moment as clients are opting for much more creative styles and statement looks. For the more daring of clients, the addition of an undercut to really emphasise the asymmetric look is a must and will give the style a little more edge. The longer top section can be blow dried to create the upward volume. Finished with a smoothing serum to give a sexy shine, this look is ready to party.
The Classic Hair Up
“A real classic look, the bun is a favourite all year round as it is glamorous, low maintenance and eye catching. To recreate, blow-dry the hair as sleek as possible and then gather into a pony tail just below the crown. Lightly backcomb the pony tail before styling over padding which surrounds the band, securing the pony tail. Smooth over the top sections with a finishing serum and wrapped and secured for the finished look.
The Queen of Curls
“This style is all about a sense of freedom as the soft bouncy curls reflect the fun and playfulness of the season.. To recreate this look, split the hair into multiple sections and wrap medium barrel tongs round each. Once the curls have cooled, gently pull fingers through the hair to release some of the curl. Finish the look by using a light holding spray, which will keep the curls in place while allowing the natural bounce.”
