What’s Your Party Hair Personality?

In New York, Fashion Week has started, and that means going to endless events that require primping. For those of you who aren’t taking part in that, you are not off the hook either. Christmas and New Years may be over, but Valentines Day is coming up, and before we know it, all sorts of spring celebrations!

So, when you go out to a party – what sort of look are you looking for? And how does your hair reflect that? I conferred with Marcos Diaz, session stylist at ION Studio (www.ionstudionyc.com), and got a bit of a rundown.

The Romantic

Using your hands only, pull hair back in to a ponytail. With the ponytail, mold it into a loose chignon and put bobbi pins in to hold it in place. Using only your hands to smooth the look rather than a brush, keeps it modern rather than manufactured looking.

The Flirt

For a smart, playful look, use a brush to put your hair into a high ponytail. Curl the ponytail around a 1inch curling iron. Add hairspray when done styling to tame fly-aways and add shine.

The Vixen

A great way to wear your hair down is to curl your hair with a 1inch curling iron, making sure to curl hair AWAY from your face. Once you’re done curling your hairbrush out all the curls, don't worry about the curls falling out; brushing hair enhances the curling iron set. Make a deep side part and add some hairspray to seal the look. The deep side part is what's key in making it an expensive and special look.

Are you ready? Try one of these looks, and tell us how it goes!
