Create Dramatic Holiday Hair Styles With Your Curling Iron
It really is the most wonderful time of the year. And this past week I’ve been enjoying receiving in the mail the Christmas issues of all my favorite magazines. I’m loving all the holiday hair tips and have noticed one fun new theme in all the suggestions: jewelry. What could be better than putting something sparkly in your hair for that holiday party or event?
I’ve seen two great suggestions in the jewelry direction. First is a bejeweled headband. This means you could style your hair like normal. Use your blow dryer and curling iron and maybe put in a few more curls than normal. Then simply top it with a special sparkly headband that matches or coordinates with the color of your outfit. That definitely sounds easy enough for anyone to do.
The second idea is some well placed jewelry in your hair. Clip your locks up with a barrette or comb that has stones or something even more flashy on it. Or try a pin or stick for something really different. These accessories would be beautiful with flowing curls (might require even more quality time with your curling iron than normal but worth it!) or an evening bun.
One particular style really caught my eye for those of you with medium to long, curly or wavy hair. Start by twisting and pinning your hair up with bobby pins (i.e. pin curls). Leave the pins in for half an hour and finish off with your blow dryer with diffuser attached to make sure everything is dry. Take the pins out and finger comb if you’d like. Just don’t use a comb or brush on the hair as it will make it frizzy. Then bring the tendrils up and work into a loose bun. It looks very sophisticated.
Whatever you are doing for the holidays, spending some extra time making your hair look great is always worth it. Holiday parties are a great excuse to try new and different styles with your hair.
