Before & After Hair Color: Party Hair Makeover!
By Kate on 1 December 2011
Bring your hair to life this holiday season with a cool party hair color makeover!
With so many social events and parties crammed into the holiday season, finding a great look for your hair easily becomes part of a very long to do list. Getting a great party look doesn't have to be complicated though, and as our model shows, a great splash of hair color is all you need!
Party Hair Color Makeover for Long Hair
Our model already has a great blonde base color and a nice long hair length. To turn her locks into a look suitable for any type of party occasion, she starts with clean hair. Shampooing and conditioning her hair the day before the party gets her locks into the right condition and texture to hold the color and loose flicks that are going to be added to her strands.
Hair tip: if you want glossy locks, then you might also like to consider adding a nourishing hair treatment.
On the day of the party, our model takes her locks and adds a deep side hair part so that her bangs can be side-swept across her face.
Hair tip: side-swept bangs are extremely flattering for most face shapes and always add a nice glamorous touch to any 'do.
With her hair in place, our model then blow-dries her locks, adding loose flicks with her hair brush through her lengths and ends to create lots of body and movement.
Once her hairstyle has been created, our model then adds her party inspired finish with some great flashes of hair color. The temporary hair color can be added with hair mascara or pre-colored clip in hair extensions. Our model has chosen a great baby pink shade for her look, but you can choose a favorite shade of your choice, or get into the holiday spirit and try a mix of red and green!
Hair tip: temporary hair colors or colored clip-in extensions are a great way to enjoy a splash of hair color without permanently changing the color of your hair or damaging your hair with harsh hair dyes.
