How To: Party Guest Hair - Down to Up!

With any special occasion, you'll get your outfit, and the shoes, you'll plan your make up, now time for hair. As the UK weather can a tad unpredictable, I think it's important to have a couple of styles up your sleeve just in case. I think the best party guest style is loose curls, that can easily be swept up into an up do as the day/evening goes on. Using my new H2D Magicurl Waver Wand* I took random sections of hair, and used the wand to wave one way, then the opposite to give a less uniform look. This could then be messily pinned up later on in the evening, ready for some serious dancing - the great thing about wavy hair is that you can randomly pin sections to create a relaxed up do that looks lovely, and it doesn't matter if a few bits fall down as it just seems to work.

The H2D Magicurl Waver Wand is a large 32mm barrel that heats up to 220 degrees, and creates a loose, relaxed wave. I'd recommend for ladies with shoulder length and longer hair, due to the size of the barrel, shorter hair wouldn't really benefit. It's easy to use, and comes with a heat protection glove to avoid sizzled fingertips. I particularly like the swivel cord - something I'm very used to smacking in my face and getting caught up in. The design is simple, I do wish it had an adjustable temperature, as 220 degrees might be a little too high for some fine haired ladies. One thing with the H2D Magicurl Waver Wand is that you can get round your hair quickly, it only takes around 6-8 sections of my hair to finish, so is great for a last minute 'get ready and go'.
I think it's such a good idea to carry a mini 'emergency hair kit' in your bag, not only if you need an extra pin or spritz of hairspray, but to perhaps be a style saviour to another guest! Pop a mini hairspray, and some hairgrips in your bag just in case, and if there is enough room, a compact Tangle Teezer.
