DO mix up your textures. Shine on a night out by combining sleek and smooth with voluminous waves. Try a volumising powder, like my Matt Fat Powder (£8.80), to help you achieve catwalk style with über-body. Sprinkle the powder onto the roots of your hair for natural-looking, matte texture that’s full of chunky volume.
DON'T forget dazzling diamanté. A gorgeous, well-placed piece of sparkly hair jewellery will boost your glamour stakes, making your hair look luxe and effortless.
DO up the volume, Bardot-style! Whether you’re wearing your hair up or down, for maximum impact use a soft bristle brush to backcomb hair at the crown. This will create fabulous height and a dramatic silhouette.
DON'T forget to dress before you style. If you have to pull a top or dress over your hair you’ll only ruin your newly created do!
DO the desk-to-disco transition. A great updo is the easy answer to a quick day-to-night hair change. For a sophisticated, catwalk look, tie a loose bun at the nape of your neck and smooth away flyaways with serum.
DON'T suffer from morning-after hair. You don’t have to hide your head in shame the morning after a night out. Try my new hair rescue product, Lee Stafford Bling Wake Up Call (£5.49) – a 24-seven multi-tasking pick me up spray specially designed to help restyle hair and add volume.
DO try a new accessory. Hair accessories are the new ‘stiletto’ for January and a great way to finish off a party look. If you’ve opted for voluminous hair, wear a Sixties-style headband low over your forehead, or an embellished headpiece over sleek, shiny locks.
DON'T overlook the lowly bun. Wear it backcombed, on the side, way up high or simply slicked back and neat for the most versatile look of the moment.
DO product multi-tasking. Using products that do more than one job saves time, money and valuable space in your bathroom. Look for 2-in-1 products, like dry shampoos, that not only dry up oily roots but add volume too.
DON'T forget to weather-proof your hair. Invest in an anti-frizz serum and a humidity-protecting hairspray to keep that style safely in place all night long. Now get ready to party!
