Party season is the best opportunity to finally try something new when it comes to your beauty look. That’s why we’re offering you two special makeover packages (details here) from our partners House of Lady Muck, Blink brow bar, Blue Tit and Hershesons at Topshop Oxford Circus from 6th – 9th December. To get ready for your appointment and figure out which one to book, we asked the experts in store to talk us through the key trends of the season…
1. The ‘modern classic’ blow dry at Hershesons
In need of an extra special hairdo for Christmas or New Year’s Eve? Hershesons’ ‘modern classic’ blow dry should do the trick. “Sometimes you just want to look on point and this Upper East Side-style blow out hits the mark. It’s sleek, elegant and expensive-looking with a high-gloss finish,” say the experts at our Hershesons salon at Topshop Oxford Circus.
2. The ‘boy brow’ at Blink brow bar
Eyebrows can make or break a beauty look, so make sure to get it right this party season. “A key trend we’re consistently seeing is the ‘boy brow’ – a full, feathery, natural brow where the arch is kept fuller and straighter in shape. It’s about celebrating the brows nature blessed you with and making them look even more beautiful and defined,” is the key advice Blink brow bar shared with us.
3. Wintery bleached pastels at Blue Tit
Stand out against even the greyest of winter days with a new take on pastel hair. The stylists at Blue Tit told us how to do it: “Freehand bleach with a soft apricot toner to keep that cool more grown-out look. Style two loose Dutch braids with a touch of hairspray and lightly tap over with the straighteners to secure – this leaves the ends loose but helps the braid from unraveling without the use of elastic again to keep that cool understated vibe.”
4. Animal print nails at House of Lady Muck
More is definitely more when it comes to your nails this Christmas. “We are loving leopard-print nail art at the moment, but not as you know it. Be bold with the classic print and play around with neons, glitters and metallics. It’s such a fun way to brighten up your mani,” says House of Lady Muck founder Laura Southern.
5. Glam everyday hairstyles at Hershesons
Even the everyday needs a touch of glam at Christmastime, so make that extra bit of effort with your hair to elevate your look. Try the flat wave, or Flave, (left) which Hershesons debuted at London Fashion Week. The slept-in, 2-D snaking waves are created with a straightener and lashings of sea salt spray. Or give ‘wavy gravy’ a go (right) – tousled beach babe meets rock ‘n’ roll in the defining hair style of the Noughties, inspired by the iconic Kate Moss and Sienna Miller.
