The amount of time we take to get ready for our Holiday parties, brunch and family get together is a bit overwhelming, but oh so fun. Seeing your friends, family and lovers on their best behavior is always so so charming. If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, you may know that I like taking the easiest route when it comes to getting ready, even tho I am a huge fan of haircare and skincare products. I always crave a simple look in my mane because I’ve always been a fan of the done/undone look french women achieve so easily. To me, something clean yet chic is always the best option. I teamed up with Pharmaprix and Unilever to show you guys a very accessible yet put together hairstyle for the upcoming Holidays. Creating this look only takes a few minutes, four products and one metallic hair pin. Do it yourself and fool everyone by thinking you took five hours to do your hair or had an hairdresser appointment.
Step 1: First step to recreate this curly finish is obviously to wash your hair and blow-dry them. In the shower, I used the Nexxus® Therappe® Shampoo & Nexxus® Humectress® Conditioner. Both nourish and help rediscover strength and flexibility. Formulated with concentrated, 100% Elastin Protein, they basically restore your hair’s natural weightless fluid beauty. I personally love the conditioner, my hair was so smooth after I used it. Since I am dying my hair a lot lately, I need to take extra care of them so a good conditioner is always more than welcome.
Here are all of the products I used to create this hairstyle : Nexxus® Therappe® Shampoo & Nexxus® Humectress® Conditioner. Dove Refresh + Care Volume Dry Shampoo, and TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist TM Level 2 Hairspray
Step 2: Curling your hair takes a little time but is a necessary step to obtain the final Holiday look. It helps create the illusion of bouncy, healthy locks while maximizing volume. I personally like to curl all strands in the same direction for a more glamorous finish. Do not forget to brush your hair after the whole process to shape the perfect silk looking vintage look.
Step 3: My secret weapon is to use dry shampoo to add extra volume to my mane. I spray it at my roots and a bit on top of my head then shake it off with my hands. You can also spray some on your hair clip so that it stays in place longer. Yep, dry shampoo is not only for when you overslept or you don’t have time to wash your hair (guilty!).
Step 4: After styling with Dove Refresh + Care Volume Dry Shampoo, you just have to clip your hair in a fancy looking way. Divide your hair in half and then twist the upper part, starting from the left. Add your clip to the right side of your head and loose up a few strands with your hands.
Step 5: Fix your creation with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist TM Level 2 Hairspray. This step is optimal if you want your mane to stay in place the whole night. The product also adds shine to your locks, which is not something we want to pass on.
Eh voilà, super easy! You have the perfect hairstyle for any Holiday parties. A no brainer that only takes 15 minutes to create. Let me know if you recreate this at home, of even better, send
