A loose braid is beautiful and simple

Plaits are back. Well, in truth they haven’t really gone away. A loose style braid is the perfect style for a relaxed yet luxe look, which is what Christmas is all about. Backcomb hair at the roots and add a few clip on hair extensions for added lift. Pin the top section of hair to make a little quiff.

From there braid down to the tips. Add little black ties like Cheryl to add some colour. These could even be glittery! Pull out a few strands and finish with spray.

Serious curls

Dream Girl’s range of Waves and Curls is designed for every hair type. Opt from Deep French Jerry Curls to add lift and volume for a look of tight curls that will have just the right amount of bounce for the festive season.

Relaxed waves

Want to have the best style for day-old hair? Relaxed waves are the perfect solution if you just want to use a little dry shampoo. Use pin curls by weaving one inch sections of hair around your finger and pinning in place. Spray and leave for half an hour while you put your makeup on. Unpin and comb gently with fingers. Spray.

Classic Hollywood

Best worn with a red lip, this glossy style is polished. Big Velcro curlers will help you achieve lift without using heat. Add hair extensions if you want a little extra length and volume. This style can’t be worn flat so you made need some lift at the crown and on the side.

Wear a deep side parting and use the curlers at one in segments. Include the fringe for that retro style

A high pony

A polished pony is the simplest way to style your hair if you need something fuss free with high impact. If you needed added length use a Dream Girl pony hair extension, with either a clip of a drawstring, to tie over your natural ponytail.

Use a section of hair to tie over the band to cover. Use hairspray or serum to keep any flyaway stands or ends out of your way. Match with fresh faced makeup.
