party hairstyles

Paloma Faith is sporting long wavy red hair with a splash of bleach blonde that swoops up like a wave above her forehead.

She is wearing a butterscotch colored suede hat that sits high on her head and has a wide brim. She has dark eyes and eyebrows and bright red lipstick for a bit of drama. She proves that hairstyles don't need to be ordinary and are best used a means to show off one's personality. The more colorful and shapely the better. The bang area is brushed up and held into place with gel and strong hold hairspray.
