A formal, neat bun should be sprayed to keep the bun neat and in place for the duration of the wear. You can also tweak this look to be a messy like Gigi Hadid’s Bun. Here’s a video on how to pull off her look.
This is one look that won’t ever go out of style. This ponytail was super-hot this year. Bella Thorne, Camilla Belle and Kim Kardashian West were seen sporting gorgeous ponytails.
How to achieve this look: For this one you want to make sure you have been washing your hair regularly with a great cleansing shampoo like Olea Shampoo.
Use a bristle brush to gather the hair below the crow and be sure to smooth the front and sides as you brush your hair back. Then while you are still holding the hair with your right hand apply hair gel serum to your hair. This will help prevent fly aways. Spritz on a hairspray to help give this look hold.
Secure your ponytail with a bungee hair tie. Last but not least, once your ponytail is secure take a small section of hair from underneath and wrap it around the bungee to conceal it.
Glam up the look-Add some extensions. The Ponytail by She helps give the appearance of long fab locks without the hassle of growing your hair out. Here’s a video on how to add these extensions to your look. Our extensions are made exclusively from 100% REMY hair of European type.
Wavy Hair and Curls
Divas Taraji Henson and Kerry Washington stole the show earlier this year at the 2016 Emmy Awards. Henson rocked a more subtile curl while Washington sported a more bold curl. Do you have curls you try to contain? Don’t straighten them for New Year’s Eve.
How to achieve the look.
*Keep in mind that curly hair is dryer than regular hair so be sure to moisturize your tresses regularly before styling. You don’t need to shampoo daily, just condition your locks on a regular basis. Don’t be afraid to use a deep conditioner, but only do it when your hair is damaged.
Styling-If your locks are wet, you need to try with a tee-shirt, yes a tee-shirt. Curly hair typically doesn’t respond well to being towel dried as this can damage your ends. Purchase a diffuser to dry your hair with. A diffuser will lessen your hair’s exposure to heat which in turn will help maintain your curls. Detangle your hair with your fingers or wide tooth comb. Never start brushing at your roots. This can cause strands of hair to break. Start the detangling process at the end of your hair and work your way up. The wide-tooth comb should be able to comb out some tangles. You may have to use your fingers at the same time as the comb to work out more difficult tangles.
Flip your hair over your head. Start diffusing at the roots, and stop at the midway point between your hair and your roots. This should give your hair some volume for the day.
Use a lower setting on your blow dryer. Limit blow drying to twice a week to avoid drying out your hair. Curly hair should normally dry naturally.
To finish, use a touch of product while drying to help your curls hold. Use a medium-hold spray to keep your look in place throughout the day. Stay away from spray with alcohol, though, as it dries out your hair. Or put a little serum or wax on your curls to create definition.
