Are you looking for party hairstyles that keep your hair on point all night? Or maybe you just want to try out a new look this holiday season?

Whether you're after big, bouncy curls or voluminous waves, we've got the perfect party hair tips.

So, let us help you choose which hairstyle is best for each occasion—from poker straight to bouncy curls. Read on for five party-ready looks to keep the festivities going all summer.


 

 

 

 

1. Sleek and straight hair for any kind of party.

Sleek and straight is a one-style-fits-all party essential. Not only will it keep you looking great all night long, but it's a look that's just right for everyone. Whether going to a casual party or looking for a more corporate 'do, mastering the sleek and straight look is a great place to start.

 Get the look:

  1. Start with damp hair that's parted down the middle.
  2. Blow-dry your hair down the hair shaft using a round brush.
  3. Once your hair is completely dry, use your heat straightening tool and run it through your hair from root to tip.
  4. Play around with the heat settings, and obvs add some cute accessories to make this classic look match your outfit and your personality.
  5. You could also try securing your sleek and straight locks into a tight ponytail!
  6. Apply a light spray of JUSTICE Professional Extreme Hold Hairspray around your hairline to prevent flyaways.

2. Big bouncy party curls for Christmas lunches and afternoon parties. 

If you're looking for a classy party hairstyle that makes a statement, go with big and bouncy curls. This style works for anyone with medium to long hair and is perfect for day and night celebrations.

 Get the look:

  1. Start with damp hair that's parted down the middle.
  2. Blow-dry your hair using a round brush.
  3. Use a comb and begin to section your hair into 1-inch sections.
  4. Once your hair is completely dry, take a curling iron and hold the wand vertically, taking each section of hair beginning from the ear height, ensuring you are twisting away from your face until you reach the ends.

PSA! Our JUSTICE Professional Curl Crème makes putting together this look so much easier because it keeps your hair frizz-free while maintaining maximum shine and hold for your curls. You glow, girl!

3. Messy braids for hot summer afternoon parties.

Braids have been around for EVER, but this season it's all about making them messy and tousled. This cute, casual look is ideal if you want an easy-going party style that stays picture-perfect all day, even when it's windswept and slightly disheveled!

Get the look:

  1. It's easier to braid damp hair but go for misting dry hair with JUSTICE Professional Sea Salt Spray rather than trying this with wet hair from the shower. 
  2. If your hair's fine and straight, it's best to start with unwashed hair and tease/ curl your hair first to give it more body – also, try a spray of JUSTICE Professional Dry Nutrient Shampoo to add volume and texture. 
  3. Messy braids for thick or coarse hair work best with a bit of JUSTICE Professional Clay or Matte for more flexibility. 
  4. Go with your natural part for a messy, natural-looking braid, or use a comb to make a strong line if you're working with a more intricate style. 
  5. Always start with a tight braid before you tease and fluff to create the texture you want. 
  6. Use your fingers to pull out strands or buff your braid with a brush until you get the perfect look. 

Clips and pins are your best friend if you're having trouble keeping your messy braids in place. As a final touch, a spritz of JUSTICE Professional Extreme Hold Hairspray will provide long-lasting hold and leave you feeling fresh (and your hair smelling delish, too!).

4. Retro waves for Christmas dinners.

When you want a sophisticated and feminine party look that will look right at a special get-together, go for party waves all the way. Nothing says fun like voluminous half-up half-down hairstyles. This retro hairstyle is unique and will give you party-perfect waves without worrying about getting out the old-school hot rollers!

Get the look.

  1. Start with damp hair.
  2. Blow-dry your hair using a round brush.
  3. Once your hair is completely dry, apply JUSTICE Professional Smooth and Groom Wearable Treatment and section your hair with a brush to ensure even curling.
  4. Take a curling iron and tightly curl your hair in alternating directions for volume.
  5. Once you have finished curling your hair, pull your hair into a simple half ponytail to complete the look. 
  6. You can tease the hair gently at the sides to create more volume. 
  7. Voluminous curls for New Year's Eve parties.

5. Voluminous Party Curls

If you're a low-maintenance kind of girl, voluminous party curls could be your go-to look. This style is perfect for medium to long hair and will give you big, bouncy curls that'll last well past the midnight countdown.

Get the look:

  1. Start with damp hair that's parted down the middle.
  2. Blow-dry your hair using a round brush.
  3. Once your hair is completely dry, apply JUSTICE Professional Smooth and Groom Wearable Treatment and section your hair with a brush to ensure even curling.
  4. Take a curling iron or heat tool and loosely curl your hair.
  5. Sashay at will! And take every opportunity to swish!

Now that end-of-year celebrations are about to be in full swing, it's time to have some fun with your hair. And who knows? These party-ready looks might just set the trend for the entire year to come!
