    Party hairstyles – embellished hair slide

    As seen on so many of London’s party scene, the embellished hair slide might just be the easiest party hairstyle to achieve. You can either wear your hair down or tie it into a low bun, then pop a slide (or two for extra glamour) in at the front, close to your parting. Our food columnist, Laura Jackson, demonstrates this marvellously on her wedding day.

    Another simple, yet incredibly effective, party hairstyle is adding a touch of velvet to your look. You could opt for a padded headband or a velvet bow tied neatly onto a ponytail.
