How to: Holiday Hair

There is no time like the holidays to amp up your style. 

Fashion. Be bold and daring with your looks, paying special attention to details with the addition of the perfect accessories. Black is always a great choice; but to really stand out in the crowd, choose a bright color.

Hair. These looks are designed to inspire you to create your own individual look. Work with your natural texture. Those with straight hair can choose a smooth look. For those curly divas, embrace a textured look. For your fancy parties, schedule an appointment with your favorite stylist for him or her to create your unique up-style. Or, if you are creative, do your own! As you twist and pin, it’s okay for tendrils to drop out as this adds softens and romance. The addition of accessories will create added sparkle. Bejeweled hairpins, headbands, and barrettes are readily available. Also, the addition of feathers or antique jewelry can invent special charm.

Makeup. For a gorgeous glow, be sure to moisturize before applying your foundation. The addition of an illuminating under-eye cream will make people think you have been drinking from the fountain of youth. A long-wearing lip color with last the night through and won’t leave those annoying lipstick marks on your wine glass. 

1. Smooth hair high on the head and secure into a ponytail on top of the head. 

 2. Wrap a large hair pad around the ponytail and pin to secure at the base. 

3. Twist small sections of the ponytail. Take a small piece from the end and pull while pushing the remainder of the strand to create a ruching effect. 

4. Pin the strand at the base. Repeat for each strand working your way around the head. 

 5. Spray with hairspray for hold and shine.
