Holiday Hair


Happy December, everyone!   Welcome back ❤

I am so happy December is here!  To start off this month of blog posts, I have an easy, loose-curl holiday hairstyle that will be perfect for parties or weddings. There are always so many events to attend this time of year, I’m always on the lookout for new hairstyles.

You Will Need:

  • Curling Iron – I use a 1 1/4 inch Hot Tools Curling Iron
  • Clip (to section hair)
  • Brush/Paddle Brush – My favorite is the Denman Large Paddle Brush
  • Texturizing Spray –  L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni Art Wild Stylers Next Day Hair Dry Finishing Spray
  • Heat Protectant – Chi 44 Iron Guard Thermal Protection Spray
  • Bobby Pins
  • Hair Ribbon or Headband

Step 1: Section Hair



Step 2: Apply Heat Guard, Take Small Sections of Hair, and Curl Them Away From Your Face


Step 3: Spray With Flexible Hold Hairspray – DO NOT brush/disrupt the curls yet!


Step 4a: Do NOT Inhale Hairspray.  Tastes Awful.


Step 5: Take Down Another Section of Hair


Next, repeat Steps 2&3: Spray the new section of hair with heat guard, curl small sections away from your face, spray curls with hairspray.  Once that section is done, take down the next section and repeat the process until all hair is curled.


*If You Want to Keep Length: Gently Tug Down On Curls While Still Hot*


Step 6: Once All Hair is Curled:

  • Wait Until Curls Are Completely Cool

  • Brush Out Hair


Step 7: Style/Add Texture


I lift sections of hair and spray the texture spray to break the curls up a bit/give some definition.

That’s it!  Pretty, relaxed curls! From here, you can style your hair however you’d like.

You can tuck hair behind your ear, or pin up one or both sides!


I’m Going Through a Ribbon-Bow Phase

I got this black ribbon off a shopping bag (Banana Republic, maybe?!).  Any headband would work just fine for this, as well.

Throw on a fun party dress, some lipstick, and add some accessories!   Ready to go!

Flat Iron Waves – Hair Tutorial

This is one of my go-to hairstyles, because it is so fast and easy!  Check out the video here!

All you will need for this look:

  • Flat Iron – Mine is the ghd 1″ Classic Styler
  • Heat Protectant Spray – Lots of drugstore and salon choices, I use the Chi 44 Iron Guard Thermal Protection Spray
  • Clips to section your hair – I like using alligator clips, these are similar to the ones I have. I picked mine up from the beauty supply store.  If you have thicker hair like mine, these clips work better for me than the straight ones.


To start, I blow dry my hair as straight as possible using a round brush (this one from Goody is the one I used and it is my FAVE)!   Don’t forget the heat protectant.  I use It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin.  For this hairstyle, if you have curly/wavy hair like me you don’t need to get your hair too straight, because we will straighten and curl as we go.



Section your hair off, leaving only the bottom portion down.  Don’t forget to spray the section with hear protectant before styling each section!






Taking small sections and starting with the hair closest to your face, run the flat iron through your hair, rotating the flat iron away from you as you go, creating a loose wave.




I always curl sections of hair that frame my face away from me, but once I get towards the back of my head I alternate the direction of the curl, to keep the waves more defined.

Once the bottom section is all curled let down another section, spray with heat protectant, and repeat the process.

For the top section, part your hair where you’d like and be sure to curl the face-framing sections of hair away from your face!  Once all sections are styled, you can run some product through your hair for even more volume and texture!  My favorites:
