Over the Christmas Holiday Season there will be a lot of parties to go to. You may be going to family or friends for a dinner or drinks party or you might be going out to a restaurant with work friends and colleagues. And you might be going to a Christmas Ball or party in a club with DJ's.

You'll need to get ready and get your clothes, hair, nails and makeup done in time and think of what presents you'll need to take with you; for example wines, cheese, cakes, biscuits, and other gifts.

Christmas Makeup And Hair

You'll want to get your makeup, nails and hair done before Christmas and you may have to have it done more than once.

Get a trim, color or highlights done and a conditioning treatment and blow dry.

Then you can discuss with your hairdresser what kind of hairstyles you want to have for Christmas. Tell him or her where you're going and any ideas for styles you have, that way, they will know more about what you like or the kind of hair style to fit the evening or event.

Christmas hairstyles are glamorous and chic with sleek blow dried straight styles and also big curls created with curling tongs or rollers.

Hair styles for the evening may be half up and half done or simply a hair up style.

And your makeup should be more sparkly or deeper to fit the Christmas mood and colors. Make up colors that suit the Christmas season are gold and silver glitter eye shadows and red and burgundy lip sticks.


Glitter lip gloss, either clear or gold looks good over your own lipstick and helps to create an evening look.
