A Touch Of Sparkle
HOW TO GET IT Bejewelled accessories are the fastest way to make both long or short hair partyready. Don’t overdo the sparkles, though. ‘If you’re accessorising your hair, balance it with less jewellery elsewhere,’ says Jonathan Soons, artistic ambassador at Headmasters, who used a Butler & Wilson Hair Clip, £78, here (left). ‘On shorter hair, a low side parting held in place with diamanté hair pins or clips is elegant, while on longer styles, jewels can be added to the base of side ponytails or pretty, dishevelled chignons.’ Jonathan also suggests grabbing a favourite brooch or bracelet and pinning into hair to add interest to your style, or try Anthropologie, Accessorize or J.crew for more ideas. HOW TO KEEP IT If you plan to use heated tools, wash and blow-dry hair in the morning, so that it’s completely dry when you’re ready to style it, saving you time. A weekly treatment such as Philip Kingsley Elasticizer, £34, keeps hair looking healthy if you’re styling it more often than usual. Excess styling can leave hair looking dull, so a lightweight glossing mist is essential during party season. We love Kérastase Elixir Ultime Huile Légère, £41.40.
