Easy Party Hair
Unplanned night outs are always the best, but we have all felt that little ‘what am I going to do with my hair?!’ panic haven’t we? The fastest and easiest way to manage hair extensions when you don’t have your full kit to hand is an up do. There are a couple of things you can keep in your handbag, or desk at work to whip up an emergency hairstyle: kirby grips, dry shampoo and a tail comb. This three items are infinitely useful! We have found four styles you can put together in a jiffy.
Plaits are an easy way to add interest to your hair and can be done tonnes of different ways. A classic side French plait, or plait down to the ears and put the rest in a bun or pony. We like to keep it slightly messy looking, so it doesn’t look like you are off to school!
One of the easiest and fastest ways to tame your long hair, a high bun looks sleek and sophisticated. Not to be confused with a messy bun, a neatly done top knot and a little black dress is a great look to take you from the office, straight to dinner.
A French twist might require a little bit of pre-practice, but once you know how, it’s a very easy hairstyle to achieve when you are in a pinch. Use a tail comb to gently backcomb your hair to achieve lots of volume.

A high ponytail looks really cute and is suitable for long hair. We love Ariana Grande’s signature look, what’s good enough for Ariana is good enough for us, right? Just remember to keep a little bit of hair out to wrap around your ponytail, it keeps the style looking more like a ‘style’ and less like you have just come from the gym!
