3 Quick and Easy Holiday Hair Styles

Whether you’re dashing from the office straight to cocktail hour or prancing off to a New Year’s Eve gala after visiting your grandma, va-va-voom holiday hair is a must-have. But what’s a girl to do in a massive time crunch? Celebrity hair stylist David Babaii, who has worked with stars including Nicole Kidman and Kate Hudson, has just the quick fix with these three hair styles you can achieve in just five minutes flat.

1.  Keep it on the Down Low

Make your “up-do” into a “low-do” like this style David did for Nicole Kidman.

Begin by applying Couture Colour Pequi Oil to dry hair and create a quick up-do by combing hair back into a low or upper nape ponytail and fasten. Take various size strands, looping, twisting or braiding them into and around the base. Secure with bobby pins, and spray with a flexible hold hair spray to keep in place. Add a decorative pin to finish this party look.

2.  Make Waves

Get a two-for-one with this versatile, convertible style that is playful by day and sensual by night. Start off in the morning by putting all of your hair into a messy ponytail. The tighter you fasten and twist the ponytail, the more waves you will achieve later on. Then spritz it with IT&LY HAIRFASHION’s Pure Texture.

For the evening, undo the ponytail and you will have instant waves and texture like David created for Olivia Wilde.

Flip your head down spritz with IT&LY HAIRFASHION’s Pure Hair Eco Hairspray and then flip back to create volume. For added texture spritz additional Pure Hair Eco. You can also twist one or both sides up and away from the face or add a decorative headband to finish the style.

3.  Fake a Cut!

Make it look like you have a whole new style without ever picking up the shears. To get a quick illusion like David did below for Scarlett Johansson, begin by rolling your long tresses under and secure with pins creating a short “faux bob” look.

Add headband or decorative pins for extra oomph. For a dramatic look sweep your hair over to one side and cup under for another quick change. Finish with White Sands Infinity Hairspray for a long lasting, flexible hold with shine. Everyone will think you cut your hair!
