Many of you know my friend, Kendra (see her website here) because you’ve seen her over on our Instagram or at our store braid bars. Well, I was thrilled to find out that she would give Semblance even more of her time and teach us all how to style our hair for the holidays. For those of you don’t know, Kendra has been doing my hair for a few years now and is such an incredible hair stylist and makeup artist. You guys, she did hair for Marchesa at this past New York Fashion Week and Bridal Fashion week. So cool! I have a feeling you guys are going to love all of the tips and ideas she has for us. So, here we go…
It’s time to start planning your holiday looks for upcoming family photos, parties and travel. I’ve got all of the tips you need to stay on trend for every event.
This holiday season is going to be all about texture. Layering cashmere and sherpa over delicate cottons and silk blouses. Holiday hair trends will follow suite. From sleek swept back buns to ponytails and braids, you’ll see layering of textures and dimensional color everywhere you turn.
Follow our step by step to turn a simple ponytail into a multi-textured look that will dazzle for the holidays.
Prep hair by applying four drops of Rejuvenique Oil Intensive through mid lengths and ends to add shine and create the perfect foundation for styling.
Create a center part and separate the front from the back with an ear to ear parting at the high point of the head.
Using a boar bristle brush, sweep the section behind the ear into a low ponytail and secure with an elastic. (Tip: pull gently at the crown once the ponytail is secured to add volume)
Lightly spray the two remaining sections of hair with The Champ Conditioning Dry Shampoo from mid lengths to ends and gently rouche the hair to create texture.
Organize the two remaining sections to create the desired face-framing look and then carefully knot them together above the existing ponytail.
Secure the ends of knot with a clear elastic or bobby pins.
Finish with Refinish Hairspray for a strong hold and natural shine.
