As the festive season swings into action, our Creative Director Norris Ogario shares some easy-to-achieve party styles. If you want to achieve maximum glamour but you are short on time, we have the perfect updo hairstyle for you!
A Classic Elegance with a Modern Edge
There’s a classic elegance to this updo hairstyle seen on the Alberta Ferretti AW17 catwalk. The textured finish gives a modern edge to this romantic look; says Norris.
The Undo Updo: Get the Look
- Style on dry hair and start by lightly teasing the roots to give locks some texture; this will help prevent the bun from slipping out. Create a small centre parting and focus on getting some lift at the crown.
- Make a low, loose ponytail at the nape of the neck and secure with a band, not too close to your scalp. Tease the hair with fingers, pulling allowing pieces to fall out.
- Loosely plait the back of hair and twist into a loose bun. Anchor hairpins into the bun to secure it and finish with a fine spritz of Ogario London Styling Mist for Natural Hold and Volume.
TIP: Skip teasing the hair if it’s curly as it will already have lots of texture and hold.

Here’s what Josephine Fairley and Sarah Stacey had to say,
“Beauty Bible fell in love with this mask when we discovered it at a Cosmetic Executive Women product demo evening. The brand comes from a London hair salon, and the mask is a huge boon for hair – packed with avocado, olive oil, aloe vera, nettle and horsetail, together with sage (which is rich in vitamins A, C and E). Just a sniff of this rich, unctuous deep conditioner perks you up. Use for gleaming shiny, healthy hair.”
