Party season essentialsIs your party season kit sorted, or are you missing a few tools and products to really send your clients out with a bang?
Just as with make up, nothing creates staying power better than applying the right base. Now, more than ever, stylists know that the right prep can make all the difference between a style that lasts all day, and a client who gets upset at the sight of floppy curls!

Now it’s time to shape the look! You can stick with wet or dry products, or you can bring in the big guns – your electrical tools. Once more, the poker straight look is back for women with some decent length, but this is a look that also works with a fake ponytail. Don’t forget your curly clients though; think about volume for those who want big, lush curls, or consider diffusers, for clients who want to make the most of their natural curls. And don’t forget those who want some gorgeous, one-night-only curls, thanks to a handy pair of tongs.
This is your final chance to ensure there’s no dropping out later! Feel free to cocktail a couple of products; just make sure you don’t add too much weight/wetness. Finishing can be all about a glossy sheen, or keeping things very firmly in place.
