  • The Parting

    Straight partings increase the elegant flair of hairstyles for festive occasions. Ideally, your hair should still be a damp when you create the parting. Comb your hair back and part it with a styling comb. Now you are ready to style the rest of your hair.

    Tip: Try parting your hair along a higher or lower line. You may also want to lengthen or shorten the parting.

  • Well-Groomed Hair

    A reasonable level of perfection is important for festive hairstyles. Defined, accurately styled straight or wavy hair is far more suitable for celebratory or festive events than undone styles with strands of hair standing on end or limply hanging down. Use a comb to style your hair for an elegant look.

    Tip: Use hair gel to create an elegant wet look. Hair wax prevents fly-away hair.

  • Lustre

  • Shimmering hair always looks appealing. Hairstyles for special occasions would not be elegant without this soft healthy glow. The wet look is also very suitable for festive events. Make sure to pull all styling registers and use extra-gloss hairspray, hair oil, hair wax or hair gel.

    Tip: Less is more! Styling products for extra lustre are best used sparingly. It is easy enough to add a little more if needed.
