You’re bound to attend a couple of holiday parties this month. It seems people dress to impress at these parties, and surely, you still want to turn heads in this crowd of beautiful, decked out people. Try something new to spice up your look. Make your style more fun, more elegant or sexier with the perfect hair-do. Following are a few of my favorites and the how-to’s to achieve them:
Natural, Sophisticated Waves
Sultry waves have been in style for some time now, and they’re still going strong. I touched on one technique to create the look in the Sex and the City 2 Makes Waves post, but another way to get elegant, classy waves is to apply BioSilk Silk Mousse to wet hair before blow-drying hair. Use Bio Ionic Nano Blue Wave Large Round Brush while you dry your hair. Curl 2-inch sections of hair all over with a large-barrel CHI curling iron. Wait a couple of minutes for the hair to cool off and gently comb your fingers through your hair to loosen the waves. Lock in your style with CHI Enviro Flex Hold Hair Spray.
Neat, Polished Bun
A nice, clean bun can really dress up your ensemble – if you do it right. Start the process of creating an elegant hair bun by blow-drying your hair straight. Use Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Paste Texture Pomade to slick back your hair and pull it into a ponytail. Secure the ponytail with an elastic band and twist your hair around the base before pinning your ends underneath.
Fun, Easy Braided Twist
This popular braided twist is being worn by a lot of today’s celebrities. Good news: it’s easy to do AND looks fun and feminine! Apply TIGI Bed Head After-Party Smoothing Cream throughout damp hair. On both sides of your hair partition, separate 2-inches of hair and begin a French braid on each side that continues down and around your head until the two braids meet in the lower back of the head. Twist the ends and then secure them with bobby pins at the nape.
Sexy, Classy Chignon
Class up your look with a sexy, elegant chignon. To get the look, spritz Big Sexy Spray & Play Hairspray on the front part of your dried hair. Comb that section back with your fingers to create some volume. Roll the entire rest of your hair into a French twist and pin it up. Smooth back the front section and pin it at the crown of the head.
If you try out any of these looks for upcoming holiday parties, feel free to send me a picture to show me how it came out. I’d love to see it!
