Long hair, medium or short? Ensure that you are festive fabulous with this season's top trending hairstyle. Who better to learn from than the master himself Asgar Saboo?

To achieve these 3 stunning looks see below for his how to guides.

Short hair- Subtle but Sophisticated

To achieve this look you are going to want to dampen your hair and apply a light weight mousse, to ensure that the product is distributed evenly throughout your hair use a hairbrush or thin comb, this depends on the density of your hair. Start to Ďrough' dry your hair and apply the nozzle directly to your roots, this will create more volume for your hair which will make your curls stand out more. Once your hair is thoroughly dry apply a curling tong to your hair, when using this make sure that you are rolling it inwards towards your scalp for 25 seconds then slowly unroll to create a bouncy curl. Repeat this process until your hair is completely curled. To loosen the curls slowly run your fingers in between each part of your hair or leave as styled it's totally up to you. To complete this look apply some hairspray then you are good to go.

Mid Length- Make a Wave

For Mid Hair styles loose curls/ waves are most flattering as like the length of hair the style is a mix between the two. To achieve this look start off with towel dry hair and then add some styling gel to help tame the fly away's and frizz, the styling gel/spray will also help set your curls later on; again use a hairbrush or thin comb to ensure that the product has been distributed throughout your hair evenly. For drying flip your hair until it is around 85% dry, you still want some moisture left so that it is easier to style with. Try to avoid touching your hair when drying as this will create more frizz. Once drying is complete section your hair into 2-inch squares all over your head using zigzag lines to part. This will help produce a more imperfect finish. With each section, apply a small amount of mousse through it and twist the strand to wind it into a tight mini bun then secure with a hair clip and repeat this process all over your head. Blast each mini bun with your hair dryer, until your hair is dry and the bobby pins feel hot, this process should take around 15-20 minutes. If you feel your hair is too curly, use a medium-sized round brush and hair dryer to smooth out the hair that frames your face, always remember to dry away from your face. Once this process is complete wrap small sections of your hair around your curling tong and curl as normal. Finally use a small amount of styling gel to tame frizz and define the waves, tousle as you apply for that effortless look.

Long hair- Luscious Locks

The Hollywood glam look never fades and is perfect for making a statement at your Christmas Work Party. To achieve this start off by applying some volumising mousse directly to your roots and repeat this process throughout your hair, for quicker application use a hairbrush or thin comb to ensure even distribution and leave your hair in a side parting. Blow-dry your hair and direct the nozzle to the roots of your hair, this will also create more volume and add more bounce to your curls. Set hair into a centre parting and pin the two side sections out of the way. Spray the remaining hair with a holding spray and split into two, curling each section with a curling iron. Once this is done Hold each curl for 6-8 seconds before releasing and clipping to the head to help them set. Release the hair from the sides and continue to curl four inch sections, working from the back to the front. Once the curls have cooled, release the clips and brush through to soften the curls into a gentle wave. To complete the look apply a shine spray and position one part of your hair over your shoulder and the rest leave to sit on your back or pull all of your hair to one side and let it sit loosely.

There you have it, 3 different hair lengths and 3 how to guides. Now go and curl till your heart's content.
