Get Your Holiday Hair ON
We fought hard, didn’t we? Trying to hold tight to the last few days of the warm weather…but alas, with the changing of the clocks, we find ourselves in colder temperatures.
As we arm our hair for the colder weather, we are also prepping our locks for the holidays. With fetes and feasts galore, how can we keep our hair look up to speed with our busy schedules? Thanks to celebrity hairstylist (and creator of SOTAH hair care), Janet Zeitoun, we are well on our way to a gorgeous holiday season.
“Rival the holiday season with a practical chic approach to hair fashion. There isn’t a better time in taking advantage of all the festivities while secretly allowing your hair to be on holiday too.” – Janet Zeitoun
- Celebrate the season with simple “up dos” that will give your tresses a break from the harsh routine of irons and blow dryers. Pull your hair into a ponytail, stay at ear level or below. Twist and pin. No worries for perfection Give your bun a more whimsical and unconstructed look by pulling a few strands out from the bun to remain free. I love to use the Capezio hairpins. They’re inexpensive and come in a set of 12 for $5. The designed arch on the pins effortlessly & painlessly keeps hair in place all night long.
- Let you hair go a few extra days between washing. This allows your hair to take advantage of its natural oils for a little bit longer. Heating systems, like curling and flat irons, can have a very drying effect on the hair during this season. Also, remember to hydrate, as the bitter winter months can be weapons of destruction for your hair.
- A few great hats for the season is a must. Hats not only cover a multitude of sin, but, can step up your style a few notches. Another way of giving your hair the rest that it needs.
- A good dry shampoo (such as Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo) comes in handy as a quick fix when hair can’t go a day longer being bombarded with product and environmental debris. Dry shampoo can also assist in giving you amazing ‘up dos’ and tremendous volume when needed. SOT-AH Oil Crème Therapy will hydrate the hair after the use of a dry shampoo, giving your hair a vibrant natural shine.
Thanks to Zeitoun (whose clients include Janet Jackson and Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and these amazing tips, we can all take a step into the jingles of the season with ease and grace. Happy holiday hair-ing!
