New Years Eve Hair / How-To

Tuesday, December 30, 2014

Hey guys! Happy New Years Eve Eve! Today's post is about the hair I'll be wearing for the New Years Eve Holiday. I decided to go really wavy with it, which is a bit out of my comfort zone, but I think it turned out nicely. I also wore a variation of this hair style to one of the Christmas parties I attended and people seemed to like it!

1. First off, I comb out my hair and spray it with a heat protectant. My favorite is the Tresemme Heat Protectant Spray, it helps to protect my hair and it smells really good to boot!
2. Next up, I take my Remington Diamond Shine Slim Wand, which has a .5 - 1 inch wand, and start curling my hair. {I love this curler, and if you're interested in curlers like this there is also a great alternative from Con-Air that I love.} 
3. To get these waves, I take small section of my hair and wrap them around the wand away from my face, and hold them for about 6 seconds. This gets the curls the perfect tightness and also allows me to be able to comb them out later.

4. After I've curled my entire head, I put two sprays of the Uniq One Hair Treatment in my hands and brush through my curls with my hands, really massaging the product in. This is one of my favorite all-in-one sprays because not only does it help protect your hair, it also keeps it shiny and pretty and defrizzes everything! 
5. To add more volume, I first tease the top section of my hair {to do this, all you have to do is backcomb your hair} and then I also spray some of the Batiste Dry Shampoo to add an extra bit of pop. I love this product because it's tinted for those with Brunette hair {like me} so you don't get that annoying powdery look on your newly done-up hair!
6. Lastly, I do one more comb through my hair using a brush, to make the curls look a lot more natural and then I spray some of the Tresemme Fine Mist Hairspray in my hair, which helps keep the curls in place. 

That's it for my New Years Hair How-To! I hope this helped a bit, or gave some inspiration for your holiday hair. Tomorrow I'll share some of my dress picks for the holiday plus my makeup look :)
