    Women with long hair face an embarras de richesses when it comes to styling: a pompous updo for the party? Or better a swanky sleek look? No need to choose with this hairstyle, since it is both in one: all the hair is sleekly styled back, the upper section is gathered into a ponytail and then wrapped around an extra-large chignon pad.

    Glamour Hairdo: Finger Waves

    You can easily make short hair look great with what are called finger waves or also water waves. They look particularly classy with short cuts. For this look, form a low side parting and use styling gel to coif the hair to the side in waves. This retro look brings the golden twenties into the present and looks especially glamorous with fine, festive outfits

    Glamour Hairdo: Beautifully Bejewelled

    Christmas and New Year's Eve are perfect occasions to decorate your hair with sparkling accessories. A quick instant chic trick: use a Strass clip to secure loose hair behind your ear for a great effect – especially in wavy hair. By the way, this decorative trick works in hair of any length and is also a great party option for shorter hair that does not allow elaborate braiding or curling

    Glamour Hairdo: Wet Look

    Preparing for the big night does not have to cost a lot of effort: the wet look is easy to style, mega-modern and dapper. Apply a walnut sized portion of styling gel to you hair and create a sleek style with a coarse comb. It should look glossy and actually wet. Short cuts can be styled like this entirely, from the hairline to the ends. With longer manes on the other hand, the lengths are left open and 'dry' at the back of the neck and shaped into soft waves for extra oomph

    Glamour Hairdo: Updo

    Fine means small? Not necessarily. You can experience great hairstyling moments even with a somewhat finer hair texture. The trick: with this updo, the hair is first combed straight back, tied into a ponytail and then clipped to the head in loops strand by strand (in various widths). Classy and dramatic. It also makes your hair look fuller and creates a hairstyle that is sure to be celebrated as a hit at any party 

  • Care Countdown for Extra Gloss

    3, 2, 1... You can hardly await the holidays? To shorten the wait, make your hair extra glossy for the grand finale at the end of the year. Start on the first of December:

    3 weeks to go: Take a final trip to your hairdresser before the end of the year and get pampered with a glossing treatment. This beauty treatment lends a brilliant gloss by reviving colourations or lending a beautiful gleam to your natural colour. The great thing about that: glossing lasts up to six weeks, making your hair sparkle for the New Year. By the way: You should also have the ends trimmed while you are at the hairdresser (link to Salon Finder). That prevents split ends and broken hairs, guaranteeing a healthy look.

    2 days to go: Shortly before Christmas or New Year’s Eve, pamper your hair with a total care package! Now there is still time to let a rich hair mask work overnight. This intensive care treatment repairs damage to the hair structure and effectively supplies your hair with moisture as well as important vitamins and proteins. Work the mask into your hair and wrap everything in a towel. Rinse the mask out again the next morning. The result: silky, healthy and glossy hair.

    1 hour to go: final spurt! You have your styling and all you need is a glossy finish. Hair oil is the best choice to give your hair that special glow. It makes hair super supple and resplendently glossy just in time for the party. Happy New Hair!
