Summer is officially over, but it doesn't look like our hair is going to catch a break any time soon. Party season is just around the corner which means we’re probably going to be curling, straightening, pulling and even, dare we say it, crimping our hair into all sorts of party-worthy styles.

But with all the long nights of cocktail sipping, canapé nibbling and dancefloor clearing we've got to look forward to in the coming months, we need to make sure our hair can make it through the night. Lucky for you, we've done the hard work and come up with some handy tips to ensure your party-perfect hairdo doesn't fall flat on a big night out.

Protection Is Key

Just as prepping your hair for a big night out is key, making sure your locks are in the best possible condition is also essential. Stronger hair means more staying power. Plus, with all the added heat from styling tools and hair dryers, it's more important than ever to use a heat defence spray, like the TRESemmé Heat Defence Spray to protect your hair.

Did you know that blow-drying can cause damage to your hair? Hair dryers work at a lower temperature than straighteners, but blow drying, brushing & styling your hair can damage your hair in the long run. When you blow-dry wet hair, it's weaker and so more susceptible to breakage. So make sure to always use a heat protectant!

Pocket-sized Hairspray Will Be Your BFF

As the night goes on, the drinks flow and the dance moves get a little more, erm, energetic, your perfectly styled hairdo may show signs of slipping. But fear not, a little can of hairspray can go a long way. Pop a travel size version in your bag to tackle any stray hairs on the go.

Brave The Back Comb

Whether you're going for a high-impact updo, a bouncy blow dry or Hollywood waves, back combing your hair at the roots not only adds volume but can also provide the structure your hair needs to last a whole nigh of partying. Just try to avoid going OTT and looking like an extra from an Eighties rom-com.

If the you're in need of a winter re-fresh or you just don't fancy taming your mane for the party season yourself, book in early to ensure to ensure you're not left disappointed.
