With Christmas Party Season right around the corner, it's time to start planning our outfits for the big night out - and the finishing touch to any look is a good hair 'do! From slicked back chic to big bouncy curls, there's a whole host of different hairstyles you can recreate at home with salon-worthy products available now from SkinStore, so today we are sharing a little of our favorite hair Insta-piration (Instagram inspiration, that is).

Whether you're off to your work's Christmas party or simply getting ready for an at-home dinner party, discover the party hairstyles you need to try this Holiday Season.

Big Bouncy Curls

Make like SkinStore Beauty Ambassador, Samantha Schuerman, and go for big bouncy curls for your big night out. Sam is hot on hair care which is why her bright blonde locks are in such silky smooth condition, and she loves to stock up on her hair care favorites from our very own SkinStore.

As seen in her latest beauty haul video, Sam is loving our exclusive T3 Lightweight Luxe 2i Blowdryer. Give yourself an at-home salon worthy blow dry with the T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i Hair Dryer, which delivers advanced, high performance technology for faster drying speeds and healthier results.

This pretty pink kit comes complete with the perfect barrel brush to use to create big bouncy curls, then for long-lasting curls, simply spray in place with the Nick Chavez Beverly Hills Volumizing Extra Hold Hair Spray to set. For extra heat protection, you can always prep damp hair before you blow dry using the Alterna Caviar Perfect Iron Spray, which shields hair from temperatures up to 450°F.

Slick Backed Ponytail

SkinStore Blogger and 12 Miracles of Beauty lover Tanya Foster is bringing chic to her festive holiday hair style look with a slicked back ponytail. This one is super simple to recreate at home, simply grab an Invisibobble and go - perfect if you're in a rush!

Our top tips for this one: use the Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil as a styling aid, running it through the crown of your head before the hair goes into the ponytail to banish frizz and achieve a sleek, glossy look. For extra smoothness, comb the oil through the ends of the ponytail using the KeraStraight Paddle Brush.

Loose Waves With Side Parting

Take inspiration from Brooke Burnett and style a formal party dress with an informal hair do! Brooke loves wearing her hair in loose waves for an effortless look, splitting her hair in the side for a fashion forward 'do.

To create loose and casual waves, use the CHI Air Expert Classic Tourmaline Ceramic 1 Inch Hair Flat Iron on it's side, moving slowly through the hair to create a wavy texture. For added volume before styling, prep hair by washing with the brand new Grow Gorgeous Full Bodied Shampoo and Conditioner.

We would love to see your festive party hairstyles, so please feel free to share them with us over on our SkinStore Twitter – can’t wait to see them!
