I recently taped a segment for Fox 5 San Diego morning news where I talked about holiday hair for every girl. You can watch it right here!
I wanted to show you my gorgeous models and tell you how you can do these easy hair styles at home!
The Edgy Girl
1. Start with freshly washed hair and apply a light hold styling product. I like Gel Serum by Oribe.
2. Using a comb, create a severe side part on one side of your head.
3. Blow out the hair smooth with a large round brush. I wanted a lot of volume on the top of the head and actually used a clip in hair piece by Tress Couture for more!
4. When the hair is dry, back comb the top of the hair for volume and to create direction. You want to accentuate the deep side part.
5. Using all of the hair on the side of the head below the part, begin a french braid toward the back of the head.
6. As soon as you pass the ear stop picking up hair and finish the section with a classic braid. Secure with a hair elastic.
7. Using a finger, create a part just above the ear on the heavy side of your hair. Hold the hair up and wrap the braided end around your head and secure with bobby pins above your ear.
8. Drop the heavy side of the hair down to cover where you secured the tail of the braid. The braid can show all the way around the back of your head or you can place it under the top layer of hair as soon as the french braid ends.
9. Set the style with a strong hold hairspray.
The Girly Girl
1. This works great on dirty hair! Loosely curl the hair with a wand or wrap hair around the barrel of a curling iron without opening the clamp.
2. Work your fingers through the curls to break them up and create texture.
3. Bring all of your hair over one shoulder and secure with a hair elastic. I like to use bungees so I don’t disturb the curls!
4. Wrap a small piece of the ponytail hair around the hair elastic and secure with a bobby pin. This makes it look more finished.
5. Lightly mist with hairspray to finish the look!
Erin is wearing a Le Debut clip in bang by Tress Couture in #4. It makes her look even more girly and she didn’t have to commit to real bangs!
The Classic Girl
1. Another look that is perfect for dirty hair! Pull all of the hair into a smooth, tight ponytail using a bungee.
2. Cut the toe out of an athletic sock, preferably in a color close to your hair color.
3. Starting at the toe end of the sock, roll it until it resembles the shape of a doughnut.
4. Pull the ponytail through the middle of the sock doughnut.
5. Starting at the end of the ponytail, roll the sock down towards the head allowing the ponytail hair to wrap around the sock.
6. When the doughnut is rolled all the way to your head, look in the mirror to make sure the sock is completely covered with hair. You may need to adjust the hair by pushing it toward the uncovered parts of the sock.
7. Secure the bun to your head with a few bobby pins.
8. Finish off the look by spraying down any fly aways with hairspray and tying a ribbon around the base of the bun.
If you don’t want to use a sock, you can purchase a professional hair doughnut right here!
The Bohemian Girl
1. Best on dirty hair! Using a wand or curling iron (don’t use the clamp) create waves in the hair beginning in the nape. The trick to getting waves and not curls is to hold the iron horizontally and wrap horizontal sections of hair around the barrel.
2. Work your way up the head. I like to spray each section with Soft Lacquer by Oribe before curling to protect and hold.
3. Make sure to part your hair in the center when you get to the top section.
4. I finished off the look with a necklace by Saint Vintage for extra flair. Please check out Saint Vintage jewelry! It is so beautiful and they will be donating 100% of their proceeds to Stand Up To Cancer through Monday 12/17/12 when you order online with the code: LOVE
Let me know which girl you are and if you think you’ll be trying out one of these styles for the Holidays!
