The festive season is in now very much in full swing. Christmas parties, quality time spent with friends and family. The holidays are a time for celebration, and although you might feel as if you’re ready to bring on the canapes and cocktails, unfortunately your party hair might not quite be as prepared to be centre of attention.
Our tresses especially during the colder months get pushed to their limits, from everyday styling and heat damage to exposure from that harsh winter weather we’re really putting a dent in the health of our hair. Plus, what may come as a shock to some of you, your hair itself can show these signs of exhaustion. With the holidays comes stress (extra family time is fun, but overwhelming) and your strands can be worse off for it.
Need a quick and easy party hair style to take you into the festive season with a beauty-full bang? We’ve put together our top tips to prep your hair for the party season, ensuring it looks and feels gorgeously healthy, voluminous and party ready.
It starts with the scalp
With only one week until the big day, it's time to give your hair some TLC. Grow Gorgeous' Scalp Detox is the bathtub essential you need to indulge yourself this Christmas… after all, it is the season of giving! ?: @takeheartuk . . . . . . #AllIWantIsGG #AllIWantIsLove #GGChristmas #growgorgeous #hairgamestrong #instabeauty #haircare #beautyguru #womensstyle #hairneed #hairinspo #hairenvy #hairoftheday #hairofinstagram #hairideas #longhairdontcare #hairproducts #hairlosssolution #hairgrowth #longhair #bighair #scalpdetox #bath #relax #pamper #Christmas #festive
Strands and scalps go through a lot of wear and tear and can easily look tired and dull. Plus, product build-up often sits on the scalp which can block the roots, leaving your hair lifeless and a little bit limp.
Our Scalp Detox exfoliating treatment is the perfect first step to give your hair a boost at the roots. With Natural Castor Oil beads and Pomegranate Fruit Extracts to remove impurities and detox the scalp, this treatment ensures the products you use afterwards act more effectively as your scalp is thoroughly cleansed and ready to receive product.
Hair Raising. Ego Boosting.

Nothing says party hair like voluminous tresses and our Volumizing Range is the perfect place to start. Formulated with a unique blend of proteins, Pea Peptides and feather-light active micro-emulsion our Volumizing Shampoo and Leave-In Conditioner builds up and repairs each strand of hair without adding weight or sacrificing volume.
For gravity defying hair and soft bouncy volume, wash your hair with the Volumizing Shampoo, rinse and towel dry hair. Then apply the Leave-in Volumising Conditioner. This uniquely light-weight serum has a cocktail of Amino Acids which work to bind the hair cuticle and cortical cells together, promoting lustre and conditioning without weighing hair down.
Our favourite part? Touch to style technology. With our Volumising Range you can tease hair into shape with a simple rustle of your fingers and boost your tresses throughout the evening, ensuring hair never falls flat.

Our go-to party hair style that gets us through the entire season? A big, bouncy blow dry. It’s effortlessly chic, always head-turning and with a bit of practice and patience it’s easy to achieve at home.
1. Air Dry
Girls, we know what it’s like. Dreading washing your hair simply because drying it is such effort. One of our top blow dry tips is to actually let your hair mostly air dry first. Blow drying soaking wet hair really isn’t necessary and can damage your hair with the heat. Damp hair is easier to manipulate so that your desired style can be achieved and ‘set’ far easier than starting with dripping wet strands. Instead of blasting wet hair until it’s reasonably dry and then just, well, hoping for the best (we’ve all done it) leave your hair to dry naturally until it’s about 70% dry and then begin styling.
Volume made easy. Flip your head upside down and blast the roots to create a natural lift. Blow-drying hair downwards will leave hair looking silky and smooth but concentrating some of that heat at the roots will help boost volume and stop strands from falling flat.
Once you’re happy with your blow dry, give your hair a minute to cool down. We like using a cool blast of air right at the end of styling when your rounded hair brush is still in your hair to really lock in the style.
The Finishing Touch for Party Ready Hair
Our final touch. Dazzling Shine.
Our ultra-lightweight, non-greasy Shine Serum uses next generation uncharged silicons that form a film around hair to reflect light and achieve a blindingly-bright diamond shine after one application. For best results apply a small amount of serum onto the palm of your hands and smooth through the lengths of your hair avoiding the roots. This will smooth any strays and add a little dazzle.
Worried about hair falling flat? Don’t be. Don’t forget our Volumising Range has touch to style technology to boost your blow dry when ever you feel you need it.
