Festive Party Hair Inspiration

It’s never too early to start preparing for Christmas hair and beauty looks. We’re sure you’ll agree that part of the excitement of this time of year is the build-up to the big day itself! So with that in mind, here at Additional Lengths, we’re thinking about how upcoming festive parties and events are the perfect opportunities to showcase a brand new hairstyle or change up your hair colour.

Let’s explore our favourite Christmas party hairstyles and festive hair looks to get you in the mood for the merry season! Whether you’ve got parties booked in or cosy date nights planned, we’ll have something for you in this collection of hair ideas.

Vintage Inspired Waves

The long bob has without a doubt become the haircut of 2018, and with this in mind, why not spruce up your lob with a different parting and the addition of some glamorous waves for your Christmas party hairstyle? Vintage curls are perfect for the party season if you normally wear straight hair everyday and fancy a glamorous change for a festive work party or evening dinner with friends.

To create glossy waves like Lily Collins above, use the Cloud Nine Original Wand for beautiful results. Wrap sections of the hair around the sleek barrel, all in the same direction for a uniform look, and hold for a few seconds before letting go. Allow the curl to cool before spritzing with hairspray and running fingers through the hair to loosen up the curl so that it becomes a structured wave.

Bold Braids

Another trend that we have embraced with open arms this year has been pretty plaits and bold braids. If you’re looking for party hair ideas that will keep your hair away from your face, a French braid or two may just be the hairstyle for you.

We love the look of a volumized braid from the crown of the head flowing into a chic bun at the nape of the neck for something a little different. This sophisticated winter hair look would be ideal for a Christmas meal with colleagues where you want to look polished but effortless.

Accessorize with Diamantes

No party hair look is complete without a dazzling accessory this year. Taking inspiration straight from the catwalk, retro hair barrettes and clips are being brought right back up to date with a diamante and tortoiseshell finish. Not only do they act as a way to keep hair off your face or hide a grown out fringe, but they also offer a decorative element to your overall look.

Jazz up a side parting with a Christmas inspired hair accessory, or keep it classic with a diamante hair barrette slide as an easy way to add some sparkle to your party outfit.

Go Festive Red

Candy canes, holly bushes, Santa’s outfit – everything that signifies the festive period involves a touch of the colour red, so why not embrace it and go for a red hair colour this season? Even if your style is more caramel or gingerbread, there are so many beautiful hues on the red spectrum that you can opt for a rich auburn or deep chestnut as a way to ease yourself into a new hair colour.

Hairstyle Ideas: Party Season Edit

It’s that time of the year again! December brings with it the inevitable cold weather, endless repeats of Christmas songs and, of course, plenty of festive party invitations. From the office Christmas party to festive drinks with friends, there’s so many opportunities to experiment with new hairstyles that will showcase your hair perfectly. At Additional Lengths we’re taking hair inspiration from some of our favourite celebs and hairstylists to ensure that we can party like the best of them with our hair looking on point!

From up do’s to wavy hairstyles, read on for some party hairstyle ideas you’ll be excited to try out this festive season.

A sleek ponytail is a timeless hairstyle for all occasions; it keeps hair out of the face, shows off the neck and brings a well groomed finish to any outfit. For the party season, why not mix it up with some extra detailing with your ponytail?

We love the layered look of the multi-hairbands that start at the crown and work their way down the lengths at equally spaced intervals throughout the lengths. Pulled out a little to create more texture, the finished look is a great alternative to a French braid or ponytail! This look is ideal for those with long, thick hair who are wanting a chic hairstyle that still shows off their hair length without overpowering their overall look.

Want to transform your look for the office party but enter 2018 feeling yourself again? Then why not try out a semi permanent hair colour to give you the gift of a different hair shade, albeit temporarily!

If you have 100% Remy human hair extensions fitted, you’re able to dye them, so opt for a festive red tone or mix it up completely and go pastel. We love the sugary sweet shades of lilac and pink for a semi permanent dye option as it looks so unique and unexpected. Treat your hair to the pastel hair dye experience and style as you normally would.



We love the loose waves look with pastel hair as it brings out the different tones and adds dimension. Try out the Cloud Nine curling wand to achieve the look effortlessly and hairspray to hold the waves.

Throw it back to the 1980’s with a mix of different styles that includes a back combed and plaited look for ultra party vibes. Plaiting in rows along the sides but leaving a top section free to backcomb and pin place before taking the back section down into a long plait is a look with many different elements but is totally achievable!

For the extra length, consider applying a hair piece that you can blend with your own hair to create a super long, feminine braid. This is a great Christmas party hairstyle for those who like to push the boat out when it comes to their look.

You could even add a glitter hairspray for extra glamour points and, of course, gold hoops for that 80’s inspired finish.






If you’re looking for a change that will include thickening and elongating the look of your hair, then consider getting some high quality hair extensions from Remi Cachet. In our collection of Remi Cachet hair extensions you’ll find endless colour options of real human hair extensions that come in pre bonded, weft, tape in and clip in extension application methods to suit your needs. We stock ombre, root stretch and dip dye hair extensions for a soft blend of multi-tonal hair colours, and some fantastic base colours, from champagne blonde through to chestnut brown. Impress everyone this festive season with an entirely new look with a head of luxurious new hair extensions that you can style any way you like!









Quick tips to keep your hair looking hot when it’s cold outside

There are so many factors that can affect our hair during the winter season, from central heating to wet weather, so let’s get armed with the know-how on how to solve those tricky hair issues:

  • Static flyaways – Reduce the static in your hair by sleeping on a satin pillow, or if you aren’t into that kind of bedding, try blow drying your hair with an ionic hairdryer and avoid using plastic combs as this may add to the static charge. No more zaps!

  • Frizz – Frizz can come out of nowhere, or be due to the wet weather outside simply ruining our hair before we get to work on a morning. Luckily there are several frizz-free hair care products on the market that can help us maintain a smooth hair look all day long, such as a hair serum and hair conditioners that will calm down any frizz.

  • Dry ends – Cure dry ends once and for all by going for a seasonal trim! Keep hair hydrated in between visits to the hairdressers by using a hair mask or treatment such as the Moroccan Oil hair treatments that deposit moisturising properties in the hair to improve the look of the mid lengths and ends.

So whether you want to try an alternative ponytail, colourful waves, a 1980’s inspired ‘do or a whole new look with some luxurious hair extensions, there are plenty of hairstyles for the party season to experiment with!

Easy Party Season Hairstyle Ideas

The festive season is all about the parties and celebrations, but with so many different invites arriving at your door or inbox, how do you create different looks for each event? At Additional Lengths we have some excellent options to help you mix it up this party season with different hairstyle ideas, to hair extensions.

Experiment with colour

Our Additional Lengths feather hair extensions are ideal for those who wish to inject a bit of their creative personality into their festive hairstyle. Opt for complementary, subtle colours to suit your natural hair such as golden badger, autumn falls, natural ginger or black ice, or embrace the vibrancy of royal blue, purple or scarlet red. Attach these beautiful coloured feather hair extensions and create a plaited hairstyle where only bits of the colours show through the hair for an interesting look.


Transform your hair for the night

Whether you want to add extra length or to pump up the volume of your hair, we can help you with our range of clip-in hair extensions. The Additional Lengths instant volume weaves and hair on a wire pieces are ready to wear for an easy styled look that just need to be attached to your own hair for instant length and volume. These hair pieces can be blended perfectly to look like your natural hair. Add in a clip-in fringe for a completely new look without the commitment!

A festive up-do

For a perfectly styled bun we have some lovely clip in bun options available for you to choose from which takes the stress out of trying to create a smooth updo. No rogue hair pins here! If you’re after some texture, we recommend the braided clip-in bun or the celebrity inspired beehive clip-in bun which offers a gorgeous textured finish for something a little different.

Invest in hair extensions

We have an impressive range of weft hair extensions in various shades which are easy to care for and style. Use a heated hair wand to create soft waves or for a more sleek look, use GHD hair straighteners. Contact us for professional advice if you’re considering hair extensions and we will be more than happy to help.


The biggest winter hair trends of 2015

With personal style and uniqueness all the rage, fewer people stick to the guidelines of what’s trending, instead only using it as inspiration to complete their overall look. Whether you follow fashion with an open eye, it’s all you can think about or you simply want to compare with what others are doing, at Additional Lengths we have put together a number of styles that are trending this season. Get ready for the snow, cold and winter weather by looking your best. Below are just a few of our favourite selections.

Full fringe

A full fringe is usually on the list every year. It’s classic and even helps to keep you warm, offering an array of different styles to choose from. You can part your hair in the middle and add some natural waves for an effortless and relaxed look, or sweep it all to one side and look more 60’s. Whatever it is, it’s doable with a full fringe. Ask your salon professional today for a full fringe and they’ll suggest the best one for you. There are a few types such as shaggy, straight and jagged – each of which are in style.

Experiment with colour

When we say experiment with colour, we don’t simply mean try a new shade of brunette that you’ve never had before. A big trend this winter is to try experimenting with colour – in ways that no one has before. For instance, at a recent runaway event headed by Gucci, one of the models had ice blonde hair that faded into pastel pink at the end, which is a unique colour to have. Don’t want the commitment of dye? Choose a crazy hair extension colour or purchase platinum clip-ins, using La Riche Directions to add the all-important colour. Be wild and don’t be afraid of something crazy.

Blunt midi-cut

Celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Elizabeth Banks are currently sporting this look, which removes all layers from the hair. Texture may be trending, but this is an option that more and more people are turning to – with just a little bit of feathering at the ends. This look works best on those with oval faces, but ask your salon professional for the best cut to help frame the face and give it dimension. A worry for many is that hair without layers will not have volume, but learning to blow dry your hair at home and using a good quality mousse whilst your hair is damp can achieve the right amount of bounce. Paired with a Save The Blow Dry shower cap, your hair shine and volume will be saved.

Change it up with clip-ins

One of the best features that clip-in extensions, like buns and fringes, have is that you can change your style in an instant. This means that, if you don’t want to commit to dying your hair a colour you’re unsure of, you can test it out first with extensions. What’s better is that if you buy real human hair extensions and dislike their colour, you can change them with dye if you choose to. Here at Additional Lengths we have everything you’ll ever need to transform your look, from extensions to all of their necessary accents. Explore our range today and get ready for the winter.
