Party hair inspiration

Your professional hairstylist will always be best at creating a party ‘up-do’ for you, but for party hair you can achieve at home our team are here to recommend the right tools & products to create your party style and keep it in place.

Simple and stunning...
To make life easy for BOS clients we’re giving party hair a KISS (Keep It Simple & Stunning!) by working up three looks - Party Pony, Super Shine and Adorned. Whichever you choose, combined with a great cut and colour you’ll look fabulously stylish throughout the festive season.

Power Pony or Low Pony?

The ponytail is a big trend currently! Worn up high for impact, volume and movement, or worn low for elegant sophistication. For both versions it’s important the hair before the ponytail is smooth, sleek, and stays in place – you can achieve this by using a cocktail of Unite Hair Conundrum Paste and U:Oil, smooth into position and secure your knot.

For the Power Pony then add soft curls with an iron or curl bar and apply Unite Hair Texturizer Spray and Expanda Dust to shape the pony.

Or for the Low Pony use Unite Hair Smooth and Shine with irons for a sleek look.
Finish both with Unite Hair 7Seconds Glossing Spray for long-lasting shine and GO365 Hairspray on medium hold to lock in your party pony.

Super Shine and Adorned

If you want to keep it simple yet stunning, Super Shiny hair always gets attention! Shampoo, Condition and Style using the Unite Hair Lazer Straight trio to smooth away frizz and add shine without weighing hair down. Blow dry and smooth with irons then finish with GO365 Hairspray on light hold and 7Seconds Glossing Spray for even more shine.

Adorning hair with accessories can transform a simple style into something head-turning. Try adding a sparkly hairband, brooch (take a look at the ornamental brooches Brendan used at Paris Fashion Week for inspiration) or incorporating glittery thread or tinsel in braids framing the face.

The Fellowship of British Hairdressing at Salon International 2021

We’ve always had our roots (pardon the pun) firmly planted in education and have been proud members of the Fellowship of British Hairdressing for many years. The Fellowship helps focus on artistic and creative quality and provides support for future hairdressing talent – values that are so meaningful to us. Jack has served on the Fellowship Project X Team and Brendan is a Fellow with Honours.

We’re proud that our Artistic Director Leanne is through to the finals of the F.A.M.E Team (Fellowship Academy of Merit and Excellence) an initiative created to nurture, encourage, and promote an elite group of young, up and coming hairdressers.

Leanne was recently (and very bravely!) performing on The Fellowship Stage during a jam-packed Salon International Exhibition at Excel, London as part of the F.A.M.E project. Always one for creativity, Leanne presented her galactic duo of Avant Garde sputnik style hair-up and stunning colour

“My vision was space-inspired. I balayaged from the dark roots to the ends creating a soft blend, then used colours from the galaxy – blue, green, purple, and colour-melted them together. It looks vivid, strong and powerful, just like the universe.”

There was a rapturous reaction from the crowd, and whatever the results of the F.A.M.E team are in December, we’re confident Leanne has a great future ahead of her.

Brendan O’Sullivan Hair and Beauty receive award for Customer Experience

“Our team are over the moon to once again be the recipients of a Client Experience Award based on consistency of Five Star reviews over the year. We’re involved in many industry and fashion features, however, we consider customer feedback to be the biggest reward of all. Our goal at Brendan O’Sullivan Hair and Beauty has always been to deliver a personal experience that makes every customer look and feel fantastic, and it’s a privilege to look after our customers. We are so grateful to all our wonderful customers who have taken the time to leave us a review”.

Aman listened to what I wanted but was also able to advise with her professional expertise. She didn’t just cut my hair & say she was done, she wanted to make sure I left happy with my cut and seeing as I‘d never been to her before, we managed to natter away like we’d known each other for years. All-in-all, a lovely salon experience”

Always a genuinely great, calm and extremely efficient experience. Everyone is so friendly, calm and very professional. Best haircut/colour too, so I’ve been loyally going for many years and won’t move.”

Jack is exceptionally talented. A highly creative and able hairdresser. He has been doing my hair for years and I totally trust him to do a great job and make any suggestions that will suit me best. And a great person to know”

Leanne is amazing! Always puts 100% into her work. She is attentive, creative, thorough and entirely lovely with it! I always look forward to getting my hair done at Brendan O’Sullivan.”
