Want to show off those new earrings this holiday? Of course you do, and a sweeping and smooth ponytail is the perfect way to put your jewels front and center. Run a mixture of hair creme and shine luxe oil through hair and blow it out. Next create a slightly off-center part and pull length back into a ponytail and secure with an elastic. Use whatever product is still one your hands to smooth out the front of your hair.
Try some polished yet non fussy waves by using a large barrel curling iron to create big, loose waves and then brushing through to break up the curl. The result is a smooth flowing effect that’s super glamorous. Finish the look off by adding a pretty bejeweled hair accessory and spritzing in holding spray.
The damp-yet-styled bun is a super trendy and actually wearable. Keep your roots and the top of your head dry, but run a generous amount of gel through hair from mid-length to ends and then warp the hair around itself to form a tight bun. Pin the ends tight against the back of your head and mist with holding spray to keep everything in place.
