It’s officially the weekend before Christmas (almost!) and here in the M+B office we’ve been experimenting with some last minute looks that we think you’ll love. With lots of catch ups and parties coming up we figured you’d be in need of a little extra inspiration and there’s a style here for pretty much every hair length and hair type. So if you have a glam invite in your inbox then keep scrolling to find your perfect look...

Victoria Secret Style Curls

We don’t know anyone who doesn’t love Victoria’s Secret curls and they’re such a great party look because they always look polished. They do take a while to create but we love this hairstyle and think it’s so worth it.

How To Get The Look

We started by clipping in our 20-22” Deluxe Set in the shade Good Vibes into Sioned’s hair and prepped it with a heat protectant spray. Next we used the T-3 curling wand to curl the hair and pinned up every curl once we were done. You need to repeat this process until all your hair is curled and pinned and then leave it to set for 20-30 minutes. Once your hair feels cool take out all the clips and brush through the hair with a loop brush to loosen up the waves. Finish with a dust of hairspray and you’re done!

Sleek Knotted Bun

This knotted bun is one of JLo’s favourite looks and we used Jen Atkin’s knot technique to get the perfect shape. This look would be amazing with a pair of statement earrings or a super busy dress and we love that it shows off Rhian’s killer cheekbones.

How To Get The Look

Start by creating a small anchor pony where you want your bun to sit and secure it with a hair elastic. If you’re not sure what an anchor pony is it’s basically a small pony that you create to clip your wefts onto so that they’re hidden inside the finished ponytail. You then want to clip your Volumizer Quad Weft around the anchor pony before sweeping up the rest of your hair to cover it. Once this is done secure it with a bungee elastic as tight as you can so that it won’t fall. Next take your pony and twist it into a knot before securing it in place with bobby pins. Once it’s secure use a toothbrush and some hairspray to perfect your hair and remove any flyaways before finishing the whole style with some hairspray.

Crimped Waves

We love the Babyliss Deep Waves Hair Styler for creating these vintage inspired crimps and they’re perfect for a party! This is also way quicker than curling and will help to add loads of texture and volume to fine hair while seamlessly blending your extensions.

How To Get The Look

To start this look we clipped in the 12-14” Deluxe Set in the shade Sweet Like Chocolate and prepped the hair with some heat protectant. Next we used the Babyliss styler to wave the hair in sections starting at the nape of the neck. Once all the hair was waved we used a toothbrush and some hairspray to smooth down any flyaways and then gave the lengths of the hair a dust of hairspray too.

We hope you have the best time this Christmas and that you’re loving these party looks! If you try them out make sure to tag us in your pictures @milkandblush so that we can share them and for more tutorials just click right here.
