With lockdown easing and summer here, your social diary is filling up and with it the opportunity to party with the girls. Who doesn’t love post-work sundowners while you catch up on the gossip of the day? But if you’re rushing from A-Z like a busy little bee, you might not have time to finesse your tresses. In which case, you need to know how to take your style from day to night with our high performance hair care products.
It helps to have a few styles in your arsenal that can help you to easily transition from day to night.
Turning a classic bun into sultry waves, or transforming your standard office ponytail into a more striking updo, are just 2 easy styles that anyone can do. Yes dah-ling! Even you.
If you’re not confident about your hair styling prowess, or your hair just isn’t long enough to play with, then you can still have a mini makeover by adding an eye-catching accessory. Nothing says “cocktail party” better than a little bit of hair bling. Sparkles look just as good in your hair as they do in your champagne flute.
Turn A Simple Bun Into Sultry Waves
If your hair has a little bit of length, then you can easily loosen your daytime bun and create sensational and sexy waves, perfect for an evening soiree. Before you leave for work in the morning, blow or partially air dry hair before styling it into your usual messy bun.
Make sure that the hair is slightly damp. If you’re not washing your hair, dampen it with a little leave-in conditioner spray first. Or spritz on something like N4’s Super Comb Prep & Protect with its humidity and frizz fighting technology.
Gather hair into a ponytail, secure with a hair tie, then using bobby pins and a light layer of N4’s Mighty Hair Spray, twist and secure hair in place. It should stay put as you go about your regular day.
When evening descends, undo your bun, let your hair hang loose and flip your head upside down, using your fingers to soften your natural waves. Spritz a bit of N4’s Sugar Texturizing Spray to emphasize those waves and set in place with a light mist of flexible hairspray. Both of these popular products come in convenient handbag sized MINIS. Perfect for a night out with the girls. Now grab your favorite lipstick and refresh your blush to deliver a post-work glow and yes dah-ling, you are good to go. Voila!
Transforming Your Office Ponytail Into A Polished Evening Updo
This day to night style works best on hair that’s dry and hasn’t been washed in the morning. Try using N4’s Styling Foam to add a little bit of lift to the roots and crown which will help create more body for that polished look later in that evening.
Pull your hair back into a low ponytail for the day. We recommend you position it at the nape of the neck and secure with a gentle hair elastic. Again, using a light mist of N4’s Mighty Hair Spray to help hold your pony in place for the day.
When it’s time to clock off, simply roll your ponytail up for the evening and twist it around your elastic. Fan the hair out, grab the stash of bobby pins from your purse and secure in place. We like to gather some strands from the side of the head, tousle them and let them softly frame the face for an elegant and sophisticated look. Again, grab that small but mighty mini bottle of N4’s Mighty Hair Spray and you head out for the night, confident that your style won’t let you down.
