Inspired by art deco, hair this holiday season is timeless, feminine and glam. “Much like the paired down fashion of the 1930s, hair becomes the focal point this holiday,” says Jo-Anne Dicken, AG Hair Cosmetics’ updo guru. “This holiday we’re seeing styles similar to what you’d expect on the sophisticated red carpet of the Uptown district in Manhattan.” AG recommends trying one of these hairstyles for your holiday celebrations:
Before creating this ultra glamorous updo, prepare your hair with a volumizing product like AG’s Foam Weightless Volumizer and blow-dry with your hair flipped upside down. Get The Diva’s fullness and width by curling the hair with magnetic rollers and pinning curls in different heights for a fresh holiday silhouette.
The au courant trend in prepping for a night on the town is getting your hair blown out at the salon. If you’ve never had a blowout, let me tell you, the luxurious feeling that ensues of having naturally straight, voluminous hair is a beauty addict’s favorite kind of high.
Alas, all too often do we wake up the following day with lackluster locks and blowout-withdrawal symptoms. So how can we hang on to the dreamy hair of our yesterdays? Here are a few tips for making your salon blowout last:
Lately, I’ve seen a lot of girls sporting a low ponytail. Whether spending a day at the beach, running errands, or dressing up for a date or Girls’ Night Out, this flexible hairstyle looks great on everybody – but if not styled properly, this look can be a bit, well, boring.
Since it’s such a growing trend (and super cute!) I’ve got some ways to make yours unique. Try these out and you’re guaranteed to look fab:
They say your hair is the first thing people notice about you, and nobody has great hair without great styling tools. I picked up the FHI Heat Nano Weight Pro 1900 Turbo Hair Dryer, and I have to say I’m impressed. Hairdryers aren’t typically too exciting, but this one delivers benefits I didn’t even know I was looking for!
My first surprise came in the Nano Weight Pro 1900 Turbo’s weight – it’s unbelievably light. The hairdryer also features 2 speed settings and 3 temperature settings, making it easy to adjust to your liking. And the power cord is insanely long. This may seem inconsequential, but if you like to dance around the bathroom singing “My Sharona” while you style like I do, it comes in handy for avoiding yanking your brand new hair dryer out of the wall socket.
