Party season is officially here! So, we thought we’d catch up with our fave celeb hairstylist Aaron Carlo, to ask him for some festive hair advice. Because, really, how else will we survive this celebratory time without it?
The TRESemmé UK Hair Ambassador is behind the swoon-worthy manes of girl band Little Mix, Maya Jama and more — so, you’re definitely in capable hands! Read on, and get ready to covet his exclusive party hair tips.
Future-proof Your Hair Against Damage with Heat Protection Spray
Aaron explains that when your hair is heat damaged, it’s not easy to manage and style, so you want to avoid it getting to that stage by using a heat defence spray.
“If you’re not using a heat protection spray on your hair, you’re not doing your locks the favour. When you’re using heat all the time, your hair gets dry and damaged, and when your hair is knackered and split, it is really hard to manage and style.” says Aaron Carlo.
With Biotin and a humidity-resistant formula, the new TRESemmé Biotin + Repair 7 Primer Spray is all you need to protect your mane against heat damage during the festive period. It’ll help control frizz, boost shine and also make your hair easier to style.
Know How to Use Your Styling Tools
We all know how important styling tools are! And, if you aren’t using them right way, you could be missing out on creating some lovely party hairstyles.
Luckily for you, Aaron has shared these hair secrets, so you can get the most out of your styling tools!
Keep Your Curl Game Strong with Nourishing Products
Avoid products that have alcohol or anything with grip, as it dries out your curls. Instead, use things that are very moisturising. “I love the [TRESemmé] Botanique range because it hasn’t got any parabens or silicones, so it’s not going to just coat the curl, it’s actually going to nourish the curl.” suggests Aaron.
Tip: For natural curls, it’s more difficult for sebum to travel down the hair shaft, which means it’s more susceptible to becoming dry, brittle and prone to breakage (especially during the winter!). And, a simple way to manage this is to keep your hair moisturised with the TRESemmé Botanique Nourish & Replenish Hydrating Mist.
We also suggest using hair oils like the Dove Advanced Hair Series Shine Revived Treatment for on-the-go touch-ups. This luxurious formula is infused with a blend of nourishing oils that work to leave your hair feeling silkier and looking shiny, too.
Braids Make the Best Party ‘dos
With that in mind, Aaron suggests that party season is the perfect time to rock a beautiful plaited ‘do for your next swanky soiree.
