If curls are your go-to club hairstyles but you’re over beachy waves, you’ll love corkscrew curls. Bouncy, fun and bursting with retro ’80s flair, they’re the perfect statement maker for a big birthday night out or NYE.

TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Oil Front

Editor’s tip: After you’ve curled your hair and brushed out your curls, pump some of the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Oil into the palm of your hands and apply it through your curls. This will stop them from going frizzy and add shine.

Curly Bun

TRESemmé Defence Spray Front

Editor’s tip: Styling your curls with a wand or a straightener? Try TRESemmé Heat Defence Spray  to protect your mane while ensuring extra hold and texture.

Wet Look Hair

Fashion queens will know that wet look hair (hair that looks like you’re fresh out of the shower but isn’t actually wet) is a regular red carpet look among A-listers. Choose between sleek and straight or wavy mermaid strands and wear it slicked-back for a high-fashion look.

Low Bun

Looking for easy club hairstyles? We’ve been seeing low buns on all of our favourite Instagrammers and we’ve finally realised why.

Not only is this look super on-trend, but it’s also really easy to do (seriously, you could whip this together in the time it takes your Uber to arrive). Leave a few strands free at the front and curl them for a soft look like this, or smooth down your hair with gel into a centre parting for a smooth Kardashian-esque feel.

We all know nothing beats the feeling of swishing out of the salon with a fresh blow dry, but you don’t have to pay £££ to wear this confidence-boosting style. You can easily style your hair at home and have that just-visited-the-salon-high. Bonus tip, use a volumising mousse like TRESemmé Volume and Lift Mousse to get that salon-worthy oomph.
