Your first step should always be to get a fresh haircut! Your local Great Clips salon is your one-stop destination this holiday season for haircuts and the products you’ll need to achieve these dashing hairstyles.
Merry and bright looks for women
From simple elegance to all-out glam, you can go from everyday cute to ultra-sophisticated with just the right techniques and products. Try one of these styles the next time you’re getting ready for a holiday party.
- Half-up with a twist brings a unique touch of elegance that will take your look to the next level. Add a colorful red or green hair bow or barrette when you’re done for an extra festive touch.
How to get the look: Prep your hair by washing with SexyHair Strengthening Shampoo and Conditioner, then let air dry. Once your hair is dry, sprinkle SexyHair Powder Play along the crown of your head at the roots and work in with your fingertips to give your hair added volume. Gather two small sections of hair at the front of your face, then twist each section and drape it alongside your head to meet the other section of hair at the back of your head. Secure both sections of hair together at the back using a bobby pin, barrette or hair elastic.
- Classic loose waves create a super glam hairstyle that’s both elegant and timeless. This is the perfect hairstyle to elevate your everyday look to fabulous for any festive get-together.
How to get the look: All you need to create these classic loose waves is a round brush and a curling iron. After washing your hair, start by applying SexyHair Tri-Wheat Leave-In Conditioner to add moisture, detangling and shine. Then, brush your hair with your round brush to create a smooth finish. Next, curl your hair in two-inch sections away from your face, starting at the ends of your hair and working your way upward. Gently brush out your curls for that retro wave, then add a touch of SexyHair Love Oil to smooth the ends.
Festive (and easy) style upgrades for men
Not sure what kind of look will be best for you? Try making the most of what you’ve got — whether your hair’s long or short, wavy or curly — with these style ideas.
- A classic comb over can instantly upgrade any casual look with an easy technique that works for both short and long haircuts.
How to get the look: Wet your hair and then use a comb to part your hair to one side. Add a small amount of SexyHair Frenzy Texturizing Paste to your hands and work through your hair to add volume and hold your hair in place.
- Amplify natural texture for quick, effortless style. Does your hair have some natural wave or curl to it? You can amplify your hair’s natural texture for this new look that’s fit for any holiday occasion!
How to get the look: To enhance your hair’s natural texture, work SexyHair Hard Up Holding Gel onto clean, damp hair. To complete your look, use a small amount of SexyHair Frenzy Matte Texturizing Paste to define your curls with just the right amount of hold, texture and smooth finish that you want.
