party perfect hair; INTERNATIONAL CELEBRITY HAIR STYLIST DOM CAPEL REVEALS FOUR GORGEOUS LOOKS YOUCAN CREATE AT HOME beauty.
An understated plait perfect for a daytime do
Prepare the hair by spritzing with ghd thermal protector; then straighten to show off the shine.
Start with a three strand French plait from above the ear, dividing a section of hair into three sections and alternately crossing each outside section into the middle.
After three or four sections allow most of the third (lower) section to drop before you add to it, simply cross the new section over, allowing it to become the middle section, continue across the head until you are behind your opposite ear.
Secure plait at the base.
Dress using a serum such as ghd polishing serum.
LOOK THREE: The Bow
A great dressing for that little black dress
Secure the hair into a low loose ponytail, separate between the head and band and pass through the length of the ponytail. Pull it through to achieve the base (a great look in itself!)
Thread some elastic through the hair half way up the head. Roll the ponytail up so the elastic is halfway on the circular shape you have.
Tie the elastic tight around the pony tail (a friend will be handy for this point!) Step 4 Dress the elastic with something that is more attractive; we have used a piece of festive green velvet ribbon.
LOOK TWO: Up-do Elegance
A great look for the all-night parties
Leaving the front fringe section, backcomb your full head of hair. It can make it much easier if you have some movement in your hair. Gently tease each section from the base, gradually working towards the ends.
Separate the top and the crown section. Smooth the lower section with a bristle brush and twist into a pleat, secure starting from the nape with grips or pins. We have split into two and rolled inwards, some may find it easier to roll the section in one go Step 3 Smooth over the section you have left at the front of your hair, secure using pins and spray. Remember, messy is good, we don't want it to look too perfect.
When you feel the look is secure, dress out using a tail comb (a pencil will do!)
LOOK FOUR: Bardot Beautiful
A simple on-trend dressing that is quick and easy
Prepare the hair with ghd thermo protection. Spray each section with a hold product then curl using ghd stylers.
Back comb the hair on the crown, starting at the bottom of each section and working with steady strokes.
Smooth over hair from in front of your backcombed section, and secure with a grip.
If you want to soften, sweep some of the hair from the front and secure beneath the raised crown.
