Celebrity-inspired party hairstyles by hairdresser to the stars

When you're about to hit the party circuit, don't forget that popping champagne in glitzy attire requires an equally dazzling hairstyle! To give you a bit of inspiration, celebrity stylist and MIZANI Global Artistic Director Cesar Ramirez has told us how to recreate two of the year's most memorable celebrity looks to ring in 2016...

A notable hairstyle for 2016 is Ciara’s cool hairdo from the 2015 AMAs. The singer looked effortlessly cool on the red carpet with her low knot bun.

In order to achieve Ciara's look, Cesar explains, "Start by spraying a humidity resistant mist from roots to end and rough drying the hair with a blow dryer. That's my secret in creating a rough texture in the hair for body and movement. Once hair is prepped with the texture, take small strand sections off the centre part starting around the face and clip it away. Then take the remaining hair and loosely pull it back into a low ponytail – but the trick is to not pull the hair all the way through the elastic, leaving the hair in a loop, like something between a pony and a knot.

"With a small amount of MIZANI Defyne Wax, take the small clipped-away sections and lightly pull them back to incorporate into the low pony. I used an elastic bungee cord which I tied, wrapped and criss-crossed several times to add a fun detail while securing the loose strands.

"It's okay to let some strands fall out and hang. Remember to leave this a bit messy. The point is to seem as it was effortlessly done! You can even pull on some random strands in the end to add a little more of an edgy feel. To finish, spray with MIZANI's HRM Humidity Resistant Mist for hold and anti-humidity."

Khloe Kardashian's side-swept curls are pure old Hollywood glam. Whether you're going to top off the year with a nice dinner or attend an elegant gala, this hairdo will have you feeling all sorts of fabulous.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star let her tresses down with long waves for the cover of New Beauty’s newest issue. Cesar explains how he created the look. "For the cover of New Beauty, I wanted a classic look with a timeless feel. Start on clean, washed hair. To prep the hair, spray in MIZANI 25 Miracle Milk for light moisture and shine, and blow dry to add plenty of volume.

"Once hair is dry, create small sections and roll hair in hot rollers. The trick to hot rollers is to buy two sets, use small sections and apply them while hot and let them cool before removing them. Once you remove rollers and the hair is curled, use a large paddle brush and MIZANI's HRM Humidity Resistant Mist for light hold and anti-humidity.

"Brush everything to create one uniform wave. Spray MIZANI's HRM Humidity Resistant Mist to set and keep the style in place all night and day."
