Whether you simply want to update your look or you’re tempted to try a red carpet or catwalk number, our party hairstyle will make sure it’s not only your dress that steals the show.

We will be sharing a party hairstyle each week for the the next 3 weeks. This week we are loving the low pony!

THE LOW PONY

Turn heads with this classic party hairstyle. Spotted on the AW17 catwalk, the look was high-shine and sleek.

GET THE LOOK

1. Once a week, prep hair with Ogario London Restore and Shine Hair Masque in the run-up to the big occasion. The plant proteins and essential oils in this hair treatment will not only help to hydrate and strengthen hair from roots to ends, it will help smooth and shine the hair for this super-sleek look.

2. Shampoo, condition, and towel out excess water from the hair. Hair should be damp but not dripping wet. Our Styling Mist for Natural Hold and a Glossy Finish is perfect for this look! Spritz directly above the head, letting the light mist fall on to the crown and then spray directly on to the ends of the hair. Two to three pumps should be plenty.

3. Use a comb to create a deep side parting. The look should be flat at the crown. Comb the hair across and pull back into a low pony at the nape of your neck and secure with a band. Leave hair to dry naturally.

4. Once the hair is dry take a strand of hair and wrap around to hide the band. Secure a pin to fix the hair in place.

TURN UP THE VOLUME WITH LIFT AT THE CROWN

volumeCreating lift at the crown is an easy option for creating volume even with fine hair. With a few simple techniques, you can give a voluminous boost to flat tresses.

STEP 1 PREP YOUR LOCKS

Wash and condition your hair with the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair type. Squeeze the excess water out of your hair with a towel. Hair should be damp but not dripping wet.

STEP 2 GET THE ANGLE

Spritz a couple of pumps of Ogario London Styling Mist for Natural Hold and Volume, focusing on the crown. The super-light mist can be sprayed above the head to fall on your hair, without leaving any residue or stickiness, even on very fine hair. Less is more. Leave for a few seconds and comb through the hair, creating a deep angled parting on the left or right side.

STEP 3  VELCRO VOLUME

Blow dry as normal, ensuring you don’t over dry the hair. Hair should still be warm. When you get to the angled section, lift the hair and apply 2 to 3 Velcro rollers at an angle. Leave for 10 to 15 minutes until the hair cools.

STEP 4 GENTLY DOES IT

Gently remove the Velcro rollers and lightly comb or brush the hair in place. Be careful not to brush out the volume you’ve created. The Styling Mist for Natural Hold and Volume will give you control and hold even on the finest of hair types.

hair look thicker

When Hello! came to us recently and asked us how to make hair look thicker, we were more than happy to help.

FOCUS ON THE PARTING, THE CROWN AND THE FRINGE IF YOU WANT TO MAKE HAIR LOOK THICKER

Ogario London Creative Director, Norris Ogario shared some expert tips in using style to create fullness.

“This is also what Norris Ogario, Creative Director at Ogario London, suggests, insisting fine hair needs “layers and texture”. He also broke down the points you should bring up with whoever is styling your hair, saying: “The three areas you should discuss with your hairdresser are the parting, the crown, and the fringe. A small adjustment to the parting to one side or a different angle can create lift.” HELLO!

HAIR TREATMENT: GET YOUR HAIR PARTY READY

hair treatment

Voted best hair mask in the Ultimate Natural Beauty Awards.

Autumn/winter 2017 style is grown up and glam and, with the party season almost upon us, whether you are looking out for the perfect fluted dress or super-shiny metallics and sequins, its time to start thinking about the ‘hairdo’ to carry you through the party season.

START YOUR PARTY PREPARATION EARLY

We’re not asking you to commit to your party hairdo right now.  In fact, if you are in need of some inspiration, we’ll be sharing some of our favourite festive styles in the coming weeks. But we do want you to have styling options and that means preparation. Preparation will make your hair easier to manage and style whether you are going for super-sleek locks or full-on volume. Start now to get your hair perfectly prepped and ready for primping this festive season.

A WEEKLY HAIR TREATMENT WILL NOURISH HAIR

  1. Regular washing and conditioning is a must. We recommend washing hair at least 2 to 3 times a week. Keeping your scalp clean and your locks hydrated will help reduce product build-up, detangle and tame the frizz.
  2. Turn down the heat on your hair-dryer and remember not to over-dry your hair. Using a cooler setting will help reduce heat damage. Most of us tend to over-dry our hair. Short blasts of heat when you are styling is all you need.
  3. Get a trim. Nothing spoils a hairstyle more than scraggly ends. If you haven’t had a trim recently, its time to book an appointment with your hairdresser to get those ends in shape.
  4. Treat yourself to a weekly deep conditioning hair treatment in the run-up to the big event. A more intensive weekly hair treatment such as the Ogario London Restore and Shine Hair Masque has a richer formula that infuses deep into the hair shaft to nourish at its core.

Norris Ogario, Creative Director at Ogario London says, ‘Getting into a regular routine with an intensive hair treatment is a great way of building and improving the condition of your hair. The condition of your hair is so important, especially when styling at home.  The better the condition, the better the texture, making it easier and faster to style and giving you more styling options.’

In the build up to the party season, we’ll be sharing our favourite festive styles with advice on how to get the look. Watch this space.
