Party Preppin’ Guide to Getting Ready

The festive period is well under way and that means one thing, it’s party season! However, creating an incredible makeup look is always at the top of our lists, so we often forget about the rest of the party preppin’ until it’s too late. Here at HQhair, we’ve put together the ultimate guide to getting ready so you can rock up feeling super confident and looking out of this world!

Get Your Glow On

Ever used the excuse ‘it will look better with a tan’ when justifying the purchase of that dress in the sale? When the time comes round to wear it, you don’t want to realise that your sun kissed glow was actually a dream and you’ve forgotten to tan. The day before the party, massage the Mio Skincare Double Buff Dual Action Enzyme Exfoliator into dry skin then shower off. This will leave your skin super smooth, ready for a sleek, streak-free tan application. Next, take your Fake Bake Flawless Self Tan Liquid with Mitt and apply wherever you want a tropical boost and this coconut scented tan will leave you looking like a golden goddess!

Perfectly Polished Nails

There’s nothing worse than not being able to wear those adorable peep-toe heels because your nails are lacking the attention they need. A quick sweep of Nailtiques Base Coat with Protein will strengthen and protect whilst filling ridges for a smoother base. Add a pop of colour with the innovative Nails Inc. Paint Can in Covent Garden Place which allows you to spray paint your nails. Any excess spray on the skin will just wash away with soapy water right afterwards!

Top Off Your Tresses

Most girls have a tendency to ruin their hair by using too many products and excessive heat. With the right products, your hair style maintenance will be a whole lot easier. The ghd Heat Protect Spray will deeply condition your tresses whilst protecting them from heat styling. It’s so good that if you spray some onto the back of your hand and use the hairdryer, you won’t feel the heat! Create your desired style with the ghd Copper Luxe Platinum Styler Premium which can straighten and curl hair with ease. Specially designed to reduce hair colour fading, breakage and frizz, you’ll have super shiny locks in no time! Hold your style in place with a spray of ghd Final Fix Hairspray and you’re ready to party!
