Holiday hair is a tricky one, because the season is so busy you are often going from work to party to party to work and have very few minutes in between to put the glam on. Use this holiday guide to add a few tweaks and twist to your day time hair so that you donít have to muss and fuss when you are getting ready for a big night. The keys here are imperfect updos, glitzy accessories, and super volume that will hold all night long.
1. Accessories. A glitzy sparkly headband or comb will add instant glam to your daytime ponytail, chignon, or even a braid. This takes your day look from business to beautiful in just a few seconds. Look for classic pearls, rhinestones, or even suede accents to add just that little extra. Keep your accessories to a one piece minimum and you will perfect this look in a jiffy.
2. Volume volume volume. Back combing is back, and this will leave you with gorgeous waves or some pretty height in no time. Comb your hair toward your scalp instead of away from it, and this will roughen up your cuticle and create some gorgeous volume. Tease two inch sections from ends to mid length, and then flip back to smooth over. Takes seconds and is OH so pretty. A glitzy headband on top of your volume will give you a very chic Jackie O look.
3. Messy Updo. This is where you just pile it all up on top of your head for a bedhead look that is sexy and elegant. Imperfection is the runway look this season when it comes to messy hair. You can do this with a ponytail, bun, or a chignon, and for any flyaways or strays, run the strands around your curling iron for a sexy messy look. Spritz some extra hold spray and your messy look will last all night long.
