Holiday Hair

Posted by Adria Marshall on

Happy Holidays, curly ones! As we get knee-deep into our festivity-planning frenzies, don't forget to invite your lovely tresses to the party. Whether you're having an over-the-top masquerade, a low-key family gathering or even a quiet party-of-one evening, the proper self-care and style is bound to make the occasion even more special. December's blog post is chock full of tips to prepare your hair for the event - after all, the big day is simply the icing on the cake! Then, we'll share a few styling tips that are sure to make your "Merry and Bright" moment sparkle even more.

Preparation is Key

A few days leading up to the event, take stock of your hair's health. Is it a bit dull or lifeless? When is the last time you've clarified? Consider getting that step out of the way with an Apple Cider Vinegar rinse (half acv and half water does the trick for me).  Or maybe you're noticing a bit more breakage or shedding in the shower - sounds like a protein-treatment (Matcha Boost is perfect) might be in order. Perhaps, Winter's dry air is taking a toll and your hair is a bit drier than usual. If so, consider using a bit of Ginger and Moringa before your next Banana Cream treatment to encourage more moisture penetration. Finally, and perhaps most important, take a few minutes to check-in on your diet, exercise and sleep recently - now is a great time to tweak these important habits to improve your stress-level and overall health, including your hair.

Now, for the fun part

Once your hair is in good condition from our preparation step above, it's time to play! The holiday season is a great opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and try new styles. We've put together some fun suggestions to get your creative juices flowing

Play with color

With so many temporary color options to choose from, playing with color is a no-brainer. We adore Curl Smith's hair makeup, a great no-commitment option for a bit of holiday fun. And the way that Sherry's Life combined color with a silk press here? *Chef's Kiss*

The more sparkle, the better during the holidays. Choose from studded headbands, eye-catching barrettes and adorned bobby pins to dress-up your do. The great thing about these accessories is that you can imperfectly place them, making getting ready in a hurry perfectly fine!

Up, up and Away

Updo's are absolutely stunning for holiday outings (or innings!) and relatively simple to accomplish. For sleek buns, be sure to grab your Jello Shot or Apple Sauce to keep your look at its most polished and those edges swooped. Braided and twisted low buns are absolutely stunning, especially when combined with a bit of sparkle.
I hope that these tips and style suggestions were super-helpful as you finalize your holiday event plans! Be sure to take care of your hair and your selves during this busy season and I'll check in with you guys in 2023!
Love, peace and all the blessings,
