Tip Top Holiday Hair

Hi beauties!

As a part of my Come Through Holiday Hair Series I wanted to talk about a super simple style with tons of versatility and opportunity to customize to your personal style, top knots! This look is commonly used as a go to style for lazy hair days but can totally work for your holiday event hair. 

Here are 3 tips and top knots to inspire you in creating your own Tip Top Holiday Hair look

1. Don’t be afraid if your top knot is off center. I chose this look today and am in love with its character! 

  

2. My twist, pull & pin technique works perfectly for a top knot! Just twist 2 or more sections of the ponytail, pull them in various directions and secure with bobby pins.

  
  

3. A twist out can be easily transformed into a chic top knot style. Just pull it up heigh, tuck and secure with bobby pins.  
 
  

That’s it! Three easy styles for your upcoming holiday events.

Holiday Hair Hacks for Keeping Updos UP

Happy Friday lovelies!

As you’re getting your ideas together on how you want to style your hair for any upcoming holiday events, I wanted to offer a few tips on how to keep your hair in place. Want to say goodbye to unexpected trips to the bathroom to “fix” your hair? Here are a few hairstyling hacks for you:

1. Place your bobby pins correctly

We’ve all probably been guilty of this at some point but, the truth is you’re going to have a tough time keeping your updo up if you’re not putting your bobby pins in correctly.  You want to make sure that the side with the ridges are face down.  This helps to provide traction so that the pins are secure and will hold your hair in place all night.

  
Another thing to note on placing bobby pins, if you’re looking for extra stability try criss crossing two bobby pins. This will reinforce the hold for your style.

2. Tame those edges

If you’re going for a more sleek look you’re going to want to tame those edges. My primary tool for applying edge tamers or gel to my edges is this

  
Yep! A toothbrush. This is an amazing application tool for really slicking the hair down. 

  

3. Incorporate flat twists or braids

If you’re not crazy about ultra tamed hair and are looking for a softer look, try incorporating a flat twist or braid into your look. This is an easy way to keep your style soft but secure. Here are a few examples:

   
   

4. Twist, Pull & Pin
If you follow me then you already know about this super easy styling technique. With this method you just twist various sections of hair, pull the twisted sections in different directions to form a unique look and bobby pin them in place (correctly of course). Having the hair twisted helps to keep it nice and secure. You can check out one of my twist, pull & pin tutorials here.

Wondering if these tips will work for straight hair? Absolutely!
