The top knot, the low chignon and the romantic braid, are all the styles that have made it strong through each season of 2011 and will continue to do so into 2012…
The low chignon has made a huge come back this year in a tousled, flirtatious and sensual way. To imitate this look, start by smoothing the hair loosely back into a low ponytail and secure it with a band. Spray Pureology’s Strengthening Control Hairspray to hold hair in place. Tease the ponytail and begin to wrap a big section around the band, making sure the hair is flared. As you shape the chignon, secure it with bobby pins allowing some hair to loosely hang out. Top it off by spraying Pureology’s Strengthening Control Hairspray and Pureology’s Glossing Mist.
This summer’s staple, the soft, loose and romantic braid, will be going strong right into the fall and winter. To create this girly look start by adding a tiny amount of Pureology’s Dry Shine to the mid shaft and ends of hair. Loosely brush back the sides and top of the hair to the nape and begin to braid by separating the hair into 3 sections, overlapping each strand with the other until you reach the ends of the hair. Secure the ends with a band and gently pull out a few face framing pieces, maybe a few just behind the ear. For a dressier look, use our favorite Curl Wand by Sultra on a few of those loosely pulled out pieces. Finish it off by spraying Pureology’s Strengthening Control Hairspray and Pureology’s Glossing Mist.
The perfect way to dress up any of these looks would be to add a headband or a hair barrette. Feather barrettes like these are available for purchase and custom made by Kelly Scripps, stylist here at Freddie B Salon & Spa.
Each of these styles offer ultimate texture and class... perfect for any look... day/evening, red carpet glitzy and, of course, the holiday party! For more hair and style inspiration be sure to follow our blog often!
