With office parties, holiday parties and New Year’s Eve added to your already-busy schedule of lunches with BFF’s, sports practices, family dinners and playdates, it’s no wonder the holiday season gets hectic!

Thankfully, you can still get glam hair for each event or occasion in no time. Start with dry hair, a flat iron and a styling product and you can create virtually any style, from sleek and straight to romantic waves and bouncy curls. We like the new Sedu Revolution Professional Nano Touramline Ionic Styler ($139.95, folica.com) with its unique curved edge plates that give you more flexibility and control for creating a multitude of looks.

 

 

 

 

 

For that office party, you want to look fabulous, and all you need is a quick refresher to look your best. Style your hair in the morning and touch it up later for a chic, polished look to keep you looking great throughout the evening.

*Set the styling iron to desired heat.

*Section hair into four sections and focus on one at a time.

*Take a one-inch section of dry hair and place in between the plates starting at the roots.

*Spritz with a light-hold hair spray like Bumble and Bumble Spray de Mode (from $15, bumbleandbumble.com) to lock-in the look all night!

 

 

 

Who doesn’t want to look great while ringing in the New Year? Do it in style with sultry, natural looking curls. Here’s how to create soft and bouncy curls perfect for your big night out:

*Work a tiny bit of mousse (try Warren-Tricomi Salon Mousse, $17, beauty.com) into hair to provide additional volume and hold.

*Take a one-inch section of dry hair and wrap it once around the bottom iron.

*Roll the styler as you run it through the length of your hair.

 

 

Be the center of attention at all of your holiday parties! Create silky, bombshell hair that’s big on body:

*Take a one-inch section of dry hair and place in between the plates starting at the roots.

reese witherspoon at cmas.jpgWe have heard so many great things about the new David Babaii for WildAid haircare line, that we can’t wait to try it out ourselves! Fortunately, we can already see at least one product gives great results.

Reese Witherspoon wore a fabulous mane of waves at the CMA Awards thanks to hairstylist David Babaii himself. Using David Babaii for WildAid Bohemian Beach Spray, he sprayed and scrunched the product into her hair giving it the right texture and movement.

Only using a blowdryer and his hands, David “rough dried” Reese’s hair, and as he described it, “moved the hair in various directions until it was dry.”

To get Reese’s hair to look perfectly tousled, Babaii also made partial waves with a curling iron. “I wrapped small sections around the curling iron barrel, leaving the ends free. When the whole head was done, I ran my fingers through her strands to get a dramatic wild finish,” he says.

Chances are, she wants products that are naturally-derived or plant based, and will help her live the healthiest, greenest life. So, to show her you care about her and her concerns, take a look at some of these fabulous natural and organic gift ideas.

It’s not only the leaves that change with the season, beauty evolves into a deeper hued daily ritual with the addition of spicier scents, shades and angles. Soft, shiny hair is loosened and worn low with a bend, caressing cheeks and shoulders. Trends this year mimic those of the ’80s with a splash of ’40s femme. Beauty is sophisticated and luxurious. Some easy additions to pull off this year’s Fall-Winter transition include:

Black Orchid by Tom Ford

This decadent scent wafts with sex, smoke, spice and sweetness which are synonymous with the design of Tom Ford. My immediate reaction was to keep smelling my wrist after the initial spray. It’s one of those rare scents you occasionally encounter in passing and irresistibly are drawn to. The perfect fragrance to warm up the atmosphere during a chilly day or night.

Tarte Eye Couture Day-To-Night Eye Palette


Black as night shadow has been adorning the lids of celebrities and transforming their summer shades into a more mysterious vamp. Classic examples include Anne Hathaway and the ever so sunny Katherine Heigl. Their dramatic eyes are not as easy as just a brush of darkness. Quality of texture and pigment are key to achieving a smooth application of drama and the deep shades are never allowed to venture too far past the crease. This palette includes one of the best brushes I’ve seen in a ready made collection. This combo of smoky midnights and sheer cool pale shades are ideal for highlighting your more innocent side during the day and for releasing the vixen as evening falls!

Hot Tools Professional Spring 1 inch Curling Iron

2676-A8375.jpg Big beautiful curls are all the rage in this season’s sophisticated femme styles. Keep your roots with minimal volume while creating a cascading brushed curl around face and throughout hair’s length. Best way to achieve this kind of girly glam is to use a 1 inch curling iron around the sides and back of head twisting hair loosely around iron in both directions.

HairDo by Ken Paves

318839.jpg But what if you are still sporting last season’s bob? Have no worry, HairDo is quite possibly one of the easiest ways to add on hair. Yes, in one piece, and I cannot tell you how real it looks! Watch the video before you say nay, you will not believe the simplicity!



Biore Daily Recharging Enliven Eye Cooling Gel

200.JPG With chillier temperatures, we welcome dry heat into our homes which causes us to wake up puffy eyed and with dry skin and hair. A partial remedy for this beauty blunder is to invest in a humidifier or leave a pot of water near your heating device (do not leave it near electric heat). But it’s not a sure fix and we need an added boost to help. This gel works gently and effectively at combating the under eye bag, and it feels absolutely invigorating.

John Frieda Frizz-Ease Crème Serum Overnight Repair Formula

103_large.jpgIf frizz and dryness are a part of your wardrobe this season, choose an overnight hair repair like John Frieda’s. Apply it to dry hair at night and wake up to smoother healthier hair in the morning. And don’t worry- it doesn’t leave residue on your pillowcase!


Sephora by OPI in Caffeine Fix

1111582_sw.jpg If you can grow your nails long and still function in your daily tasks, so be it, ladies. Long, rounded and violet is this season’s nail trend. A grape-inspired polish is definitely making a statement- so keep them shiny, on the deeper side and chip-free. My favorite long wearing shade is from Sephora by OPI. The rich coffee-inspired shade is perfectly plum.

Urban Decay Lipstick in Trainwreck and Sellout

P219002_hero.jpg Moist, matte shades are painting this season’s lips. The hottest shades include cranberry, fire- inspired and deep earth brown. Urban Decay lipsticks in Trainwreck and Sellout are a must-have for all intense purposes! Color lasts, stays creamy and within its defined lines.


Kerastase Specifique Bain Divalent Balancing Shampoo Oily Roots-Sensitised Lengths

kerast.jpgHands down, the hottest new product. If you color or highlight your hair, you know you’re not supposed to wash it daily because the color fades and the ends get dry. If you skip a day, your roots become a greasy separating fortress of darkness that nobody, including yourself, wants to touch. I’ve tried it and this shampoo works at getting you that second day and imparts a superior shine with all of its specified balancing. (available 11/10)

Clairol Perfect 10 Hair Color by Nice & Easy

clairol10.png Perfect 10 delivers head turning hair color in a lustrous easy to use formula. In fact, your new rich wintry shade is achieved in as little as 10 minutes.

These godly beings or more suitably named scientists have created the most advanced product to control our strands in 30 years.
