When enjoying a night of holiday partying, your only line of defense against fashion disasters is what you have with you in your purse. The last thing you want is to have to either call it an early night or walk around looking less than your best. The Health and Style Institute wants to ensure that you have the tools necessary to handle every emergency situation.
Dancing all night is great for the soul, but definitely does a number on the hair. Combine that with winter air, scarves, and hats, and you have a recipe for a bad hair night. When the fly-aways get too crazy, spray a little static guard on your hair brush or comb and tease it through your hair. Your look will get back to sleek and shiny in no time. Putting a little on your fingers and adding it lock by lock will also give your hair some extra bounce and volume.
As the night goes on, spills are bound to happen. Don’t be the girl walking around with eggnog down the front of her dress. Instead, pull out your tide-to-go pen and dab away the mess. Be careful though – this doesn’t work on all fabrics, so if you’re having a fancy night, be sure to check the label first.
So useful in so many situations. Dancing jiggles more than your hair (think strapless dress malfunctions), but a little fashion tape will make sure everything stays where it should. By keeping it in your purse, you only have to use it when and where you need it.
You can also use this as a make-shift hem. If your dress is longer than you would like, instantly hem it using fashion tape to bring it to where you want it. It’s also great for cleaning up lint, pet hair, and anything else that you’d rather not have on your outfit.
There will be mistletoe. Need we say more?
If your outfit’s bedazzled in rhinestones and sequins, don’t expect them all to make it through the night. Once you catch a gem threatening to leave your outfit behind, keep it still with some crazy glue. It can also come in handy if heels or straps break.
