With the holidays just around the corner, we know how many holiday parties there are to attend. We also know how hard it is to come up with a different look for different events. Here are 4 holiday hair styles to try this season:
- Use a quarter-size drop of medium hold styling gel on the ends of the hair, and run it through with your fingers.
- Using a paddle brush, comb the hair at the crown of the head backwards to create lift.
- Create waves throughout the hair with a 1-inch curling iron on 1-inch sections.
- Dramatically part the hair to the side and use a clear rubber band to make a low ponytail. Be sure to keep a 1-inch section of the hair near the hairline loose, from ear to ear.
- Using the loose strands from the ponytail, create miniature loose buns, securing each with a bobby pin. Curl the front section and leave it loose for a wispy effect.
- Finish the look with a maximum hold hair spray to ensure your look lasts all night long.
- Use a texturizing spray all over the hair from roots to ends.
- Use a 1-1/4-inch barrel curling iron to create waves on one-inch sections, alternating the direction of the hair.
- Tilt your head upside down and spray the texturizing spray all over to loosen up the curls.
- Separate the center front section of the hair and back-comb that section using a paddle brush for body. Don’t comb it out but set it with a light hair spray.
- Gently gather all your hair into a low ponytail, maintaining the height of the middle section, and secure with a clear elastic band. Back-comb the top part of the ponytail for a slight bump.
- Take a small strand from the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic band to hide it.
- Finish with a light hair spray.
The Sporty Braid
- Add some pomade to the ends, and part the hair in the middle using a comb, dividing into two sections.
- On each side, create an “upside down braid,” also known as a Dutch braid. Instead of braiding each of the three sections over each other, braid them under each other. Gradually add strands of hair as the braid moves down the head. Make sure the braid stays tight against the head and secure each side with a clear elastic band.
- Criss-cross the braids at the back of the neck, and wrap them in opposite directions until they form a bun. Use bobby pins to secure it.
- Finish with light to medium hold hair spray to avoid frizz and white flakes
The Top Knot
- Use a few rollers throughout the hair to give it a slight wave. Set them with light hair spray for about 10 minutes before letting the hair loose.
- Gather all the hair into a very high ponytail by flipping your hair upside down and tying it into a small elastic around the ponytail at the highest point of the head.
- Back-comb the root of the ponytail slightly, and simply wrap the hair clockwise around the elastic until it forms a bun.
- Using the handle on a comb, loosen sections of the bun to fan out the hair and secure with bobby pins.
