It never fails. You think your calendar is set, you’ve made a list of all of your commitments, and then another invitation comes flying in the door at the last minute. It’s too good to pass up, but how are you going to get ready in time? Not to worry. Here are a few simple yet festive holiday styles to keep in your repertoire. You never know when they may come in handy.
First of all, get a good cut. You can’t build a great style without a good foundation. Your stylist will also be able to give you some ideas for some quick glam; just ask! In the meantime, no matter what length hair you have, you can’t go wrong with a bit of bling. A sparkly headband or a few glittery bobby pins may be just what you need to get out the door in a hurry. Another any-length style is to go sleek. A wet look is a simple but stunning way to amp it up for a big event. We reccommend Mythic Oil from L'Oreal or Redken's Glow Dry Diamond Oil to boost shine and make your look silky smooth. If you’ve made the switch to bangs, you have lots of options for styling them to one side, keeping them loose and sultry, or pinning them back.
Longer hair needn’t be a time consumer. Make a deep side part and gather your hair into a low pony on the opposite side. Add a loose velvet bow or wrap a section of hair around the elastic. You could also choose a romantic loose braid instead, but don't forget to spritz your roots with a volumizing hairspray like Redken's Quick Tease for a little attention-grabbing boost. If you’d rather let your hair go free, opt for some soft waves along with that deep side part for a bit of old Hollywood style. (We love the Paul Mitchell ExpressIon 3 in 1 Curling Wand for a variety of looks and textures.) For a more polished and classic look, a low bun at the nape of your neck or a French twist may be just the ticket. And ballerina buns never go out of style. You can even make them more festive by tucking in a few sparkly bits here and there.
