Holiday Hair How-To

The holidays are almost upon us & with them comes many glamorous soirees & sparkling cocktail parties. . . A sequined dress & red lipstick are a must-- & why not try a delightful new up-do?

Step 1-- Using a round brush, blow-dry hair smooth and straight, focusing on the top sections.

Step 2-- Once dry, use a large-barrel curling iron to create waves from the ears down.

Step 3-- Build height and volume at the crown by teasing hair gently with a fine-tooth comb.

Step 4-- Gather hair into a low ponytail. Twist it along the nape of your neck, pinning as you go.

Step 5-- Once you reach your ear, shape the remaining hair into curls, and pin them back over the twist.

Step 6-- Spritz strands in place. 
Step 7-- To add texture, gently curl and scrunch the wispy ends with your fingertips.
