Getting prepared for a special occasion
After all the thought, time and effort that goes into putting together your perfect look, merely walking out the door looking like a ten isn’t enough. You need to be prepared to maintain your hairstyle throughout your event.
While your bathroom has all the items you need, your clutch might not be able to hold many of those items necessary for touch ups. However, there are a few proactive steps you can take to prevent a hair catastrophe and keep your hairdo looking beautiful all day (or evening) long!
Deciding upon what to wear to your event is only half the battle. Once you know what you’re wearing, you need a killer hairstyle to compliment it. Whether you’re going to book an appointment at your local salon or attempt a DIY style, a hairstyle that can last for hours begins with proper preparation.
Start with a Clean Canvas
While some hairstyles look better on hair that is a few days post wash, no styles look good on downright dirty hair. It’s best to start any hairstyle on clean hair. The last thing you want is to worry about dandruff and flakes falling out of your hair and all over your outfit!
Use a hydrating shampoo to cleanse your scalp and jump-start the moisture level in your hair. If you’ve decided upon wearing curls for the occasion, opt to use a dry shampoo. Dry shampoos rid your hair of excess oils, but, leave just enough texture to hold your curl.
Consider Your Environment
Choosing to wear the latest style from the red carpet might not be the best idea. You need to consider where the occasion will take place. If your event is indoors, then nearly any hairstyle is safe to wear.
If you are outdoors, then you need to be aware of what the current climate is and the possibility of inclement weather. Anything can happen, so plan to throw a few bobby pins into your purse. Getting stuck in a downpour might call for a little creativity by pulling a few hairs back to try and salvage your style.
Updo’s, weaves, blowouts, and wigs. There’s an endless list of options that are sure to land you on the best-dressed list. But don’t fret. Here are a few simple tips to help you choose your style. Whether you’ve been planning for months or need to get ready in a flash, selecting a simple hairstyle with quality extensions are sure to give you the best results for carefree hair.
Getting an invitation to a special occasion sometimes sparks our inner artist. Although it can be tempting to wear the trendiest style, doing so isn’t the best idea. Don’t pick a hairstyle that will cause a lot of fuss. And steer clear of hairstyles that take hours to install and take down. You will end up spending the time focused on maintaining your hairdo rather than enjoying yourself.
Think about what type of activities you will be doing? If you’re attending a nice dinner, then pick a style that shows off your personality. Headed to the dancefloor? Pick a hairstyle that can withstand your best moves!
Choose Quality Hair Extensions
While it’s smart to wear a practical hairstyle, you can still spice it up with some fun hair extensions. Wearing hair extensions is an enjoyable experience that showcases your personality and achieves a look that you otherwise wouldn’t wear on a daily basis.
Before you head out to your local beauty supply store, take notice: You shouldn’t purchase hair extensions from just any retailer. The quality of hair in the packs of extensions from a beauty supply store is unpredictable and often overpriced.
The photos from your special occasion will last forever. Choose quality hair like hair from Private Label Hair Extensions. If you’re going for a bone-straight blowout, add a few inches or subtle highlights with our 20-inches long clip-ins. If you want to wear curls to your special occasion, all PLE hair is 100% human and can withstand heat styling.
Arrive in Style
You’re fully dressed and ready to head out the door. You’ve got the perfect outfit, and your hair looks fantastic! Don’t allow a little faux pas to ruin your evening. Here are a few final touches to keep your hair red carpet ready for hours.
Hold Your Style
Let’s face it: All good things must come to an end, but your style doesn’t have to be one of them. Once you’ve perfected your hairstyle, you’ll need a few items to help it last for the duration of the event. Here is a couple to stash with you for a quick and easy touchup.
Lock your style in place with hairspray that will last for hours. Try Suave Professionals Touchable Finish Extra Hold Hairspray. This hairspray is lightweight yet firmly holds your style in place. You need a light spritz to keep your style set for the day. Follow these tips to spray like a pro:
Step 1: Firmly shake the can to activate the formula
Step 2: Hold the can about 8-inches away from your hair
Step 3: Simultaneously spray while moving the spray can in a sweeping motion over the section that you wish to hold
Tip: If you spray too close to your hair or fail to move the can your hair will become too wet and once the hairspray dries your style will become too stiff.
It doesn’t matter if you’re rocking a sleek ponytail or messy beach waves, edge control is a multi-use product that is the perfect match for any style. Private Label Extensions has a remarkable edge control that is sure to become a staple in your beauty cabinet. PLE Edge Control is five-star rated and a customer favorite. Use it to tame flyaway hairs or to slick down your edges. This product never flakes or leaves an ashy residue in your hair. The mini edge control fits perfectly into your purse for an easy reach during a touch-up.
Your Hair, Your Way
Whether you are considering a style that involves hair extensions for a wedding, a work function, or a social occasion you need to pick a style that you feel confident wearing. Wearing quality extensions and packing a few emergency items will keep your mind off your hair and on all the memories you will make.
