There’s a warmth that fills the house around this time of year, equipped with twinkly lights, special desserts, and spending extra time with your loved ones. As everyone crosses gifts off wish lists and dons their glitziest attire, ensuring you’re festive from head to toe starts with a hairstyle made for the holidays. Think: glamorous, festive, yet effortless — because who has time to spend all day primping? To get you through the holidays in style, we’ve put together some of our favorite festive styles and the products to easily get the look!
Create a scarf headband
No matter if you rock a polished blowout, cascading waves, or natural texture, consider upgrading your go-to style this season with a scarf. With countless styles from check to argyle, stripes or florals, you can easily make a statement with minimal effort. To ensure your style stays in place, after completing your initial style and tying your scarf in place, be sure to spritz a few bobby pins with Redken Control Addict 28 and then affix in your hair. This quick and easy little pro tip will keep your style in place from appetizer to egg nog.
Add an accent braid…or two
From Margot Robbie to Chrissy Teigen, the accent braid has been sweeping the social sphere as a 90s reboot is well underway in the fashion world. The great thing about this trend is that it can be added to any hairstyle — up or down — and with minimal effort. If you’re seriously pressed for time, this quick fix can easily add interest to any style. For best results, apply Redken Triple Dry 15 prior to creating a three-strand braid. Once finished, “pancake” (strategically pull apart) the braid for a boho feel. To finish, spritz the ends with Redken Fashion Work 12 and add a small elastic if necessary.
Nail the high pony
This signature style isn’t just for Ariana Grande. The high pony has made a major comeback this season for more reasons than one. Not only can this seriously show off your cheekbones, but this style is also perfect for anyone who is in a rush. Ponytails often look better on second-day hair when strands have a bit of grit to them. So, if you’ve been busy baking apply pie all morning, simply skip the shower, opt for a few spritzes of Redken Invisible Dry Shampoo and then throw your hair up into a high and tight pony. For extra effect, add a holiday-centric scrunchie or even an accent braid!
Accentuate natural texture
Show off your best self this season by accentuating your natural texture with a high dose of shine. How to get the look? A combination of healthy, hydrated hair and laminating your finished look with the perfect product will ensure the perfect finish. Before you get to the big day(s) be sure to start taking care of your hair. To combat winter woes add Redken Frizz Dismiss Shampoo and Conditioner daily followed by Redken Oil For All each time you wash your hair. Once hair is dry, spritz Redken Shine Flash to impart a glass-like shine that will show off all your hair’s best curves.
