→Shine in all the right places with our easy, natural beauty guide to Christmas glamour

Even for the most beauty savvy among us, the occasional relentlessness of the Christmas season can quickly present something of a challenge. Struggling to bust out your sparkly side for the work do at the end of an exhausting day in the office? Finding it hard to face the journey across town to see old friends for a Christmas cocktail when you’ve already been out three times that week and your skin is as tired as your conversation?

No matter. You know they’ll all be fun when you get there – you’ve just got to get yourself there. Luckily, we’ve made the getting ready part as easy as possible with our guide to Christmas party prep. And, if you thought natural beauty products couldn’t also be super-glam, then prepare to be surprised. Now go out, shine, and conquer.


‘Winter weather can dry the hair so make sure your locks are in top condition for a party the night before. Work either a moisturising mask or coconut oil through your mid-lengths and ends and leave in overnight,’ says Shannon Lewis, colour director at Neville Hair and Beauty. ‘Apply to dry, dirty hair, tie your hair back and put a towel over your pillowcase to protect it, then shampoo and condition as normal the next day. You’ll be left with super-smooth, super-shiny locks.’ Want an easy party style? ‘Wearing pearls in your hair is big news this Christmas – it’s so pretty and looks very couture,’ says Lewis. ‘Pin small pearls into braided hair or push a chunkier pearl into a simple chignon. It also works for shorter hair.’ (Find pearl hairpins at Washed your hair on the morning of festivities, but no time to dry? Detangle your hair, work a hair oil through it, then tie it into a big French braid,’ she says. ‘Avoid braiding any sections that are too small as the curls will be too tight. Take out the braid that evening, run some texture spray through the hair and you’ll be left with fabulous, loose waves.’
