With Christmas just around the corner, we’re gifting you all with our guide to festive styles! Each one has been picked out by the 6S team because they ooze a little bit of quirk which will serve to score high on the stand-out chart. So, whether you have a Christmas party, a big night out or simply want to look your best for Santa – here are the styles you need to know about this festive season.
Half and Half
Can’t decide if your Christmas party calls for an up ‘do or a down ‘do? Presenting the ‘half up/half down’ do – the very best thing you can bring to your prom game. First up, you’ve got all the glam factor of an updo without the formal stuffiness that screams ‘mother of the bride’. But you’ve also got the opportunity to free your locks by keeping them loose and unstuffy. So, if you aspire to have party ready hair that screams fashion while channelling more than a smidgen of coolness, prepare to lust over this half up/half down festive hairstyle.
Balayage, dip-dye, the long shag – when it came to hair, 2017 was all about the whimsical flirtation with softness, layering and natural colours. 2018 and the end of this year will see the year put its nemesis cape on, anti-establishment – it’s out to prove that severe is the new subtle. At the forefront of this trend movement is something as seemingly simple as the hair-parting and hair placement, watch how it can be switched up to create a daring and dramatic look. There are no rules, simply pick the left or the right (it doesn’t matter which) and practice parting and styling your hair to the side.
Two Tone Tinsel
Two tone hair does exactly what it says on the tin – blends a colour twosome into your tresses. It’s up to you how dramatic you want to make it; whether you’d prefer undertones, asymmetrical, a flash of hue on the back, or barely there – two tone hair offers something for everyone. Get inspired by Christmas hues (why not take tinsel as inspo) and we guarantee you’ll never do dull duo-dyeing again.
If want something a bit standout, why not seek a hairstyle that reflects your individualism. Note that the beehive is back and it’s bigger than ever! Aim for height and arm yourself with a hairspray that provides hold from day to night for the best in gravity defying hair. If you are lacking length, know that this style can be helped along with a cheeky little hair extension (Sixth Sense Salon now stock Rapture hair extensions – just sayin’).
Big Up The Bun
Is it just us or is the messy bun as we know and love it becoming, well, a little meh? Confined to the realms of gym ‘do, mom hair, and making-it-through-the-day styles, it’s time we injected a little spice into the trusty style we all know and love. Know that two buns are better than one. . .or so the old saying goes (yes, we did just make that up). Nevertheless, why restrict your beautiful tresses to the realms of one bun when two can make a unique statement? The best bit, it’s as easy to do as one bun – simply section hair into two even sections and bun as normal (or add some plaits for a little twist).
If you are local, and any of these styles take your fancy – pop by to Sixth Sense Salon (your number one hairdressers in Sutton Coldfield) for a chat (and a mulled wine!). Get in quick though, our Christmas appointments are filling fast.
