How To Get Party-Perfect Hair Without Breaking The Bank

by Rosie McKay

So many events, but no time or spare cash for a salon visit? ACADÈMIE Salon's Richi Grisillo shares how to get party-worthy hair at home...

Summer has well and truly arrived, the silly season is upon us, and the calendar is filling up with events. Good hair ( and make up for that fact) always puts the finishing touch on a knockout party outfit. 

But since you have already probably spent your hard-earned dollars on aforementioned outfit (and Christmas presents of course!) there may be little spare to get your tresses tended to! 

Never fear! We enlisted the expert help of Hair and Salon Director, Richi Grisillo from ACADÈMIE Salon. Below he shares his top tips for nailing the perfect party do at home.

1. Go Au Naturale

Warmer weather = dryer hair. This party season, steer clear from excessive heat styling, as this will dry your hair out even further. Instead, let the warm weather do and go au natural like curly-haired babes Beyonce and Alicia Keys.

2. Protect & Shine

If you must blow-dry, make sure your hair is 100% dry before you start and use a heat protective styling spray, such as Wella Professionals EIMI Thermal Image Heat Protection Spray 150ml. The day after, just give your hair a little brush and a spritz with a nice light shine spray (we recommend Wella SP Luxe Oil Light Oil Keratin Protection Spray 75mL) and rock that second day look.

3. Treat Yourself

Find the perfect leave in oil treatment for you and marry it! Again, we use  Wella SP Luxe Oil Light Oil Keratin Protection Spray 75mL. It is your one stop shop for keeping your hair feeling and looking fab and makes styling so much easier. The ultimate companion for all your summer events! 

Style It!

Rather than invest in five new outfits, mix up your hair styles instead! Your hair is just an extension of your personal style, so play with texture, up-dos, braids and twists to change up your look and keep your look feeling fresh and new throughout the party season.
