Haircare experts share how to create holiday hair with staying power. ✂ —Corie Hengst

Tempting Twist

For this vintage look, Ruth Roche, Pureology artistic ambassador and celebrity stylist, created a side part and smoothed the underneath hair into a ponytail two inches below the hairline. Next, Roche rolled up the ponytail and pinned it for a faux bob. She made a three-strand braid on the light side of the part, letting the braid fall half an inch below the bob. She braided on a horizontal until it reached the face, then gathered it in an elastic band. Next, Roche turned the braid inside out and secured. She finished with Pureology Supreme Control Maximum Hold Zero Dulling Hairspray For Color-Treated Hair.

Chic Chignon

Paul Mitchell Editorial Director Lucie Doughty sectioned a top panel and sides, clipped them back, and made a ponytail with the remaining hair. She created three sections in the ponytail and backcombed, then tucked them into a hairnet to make a chignon. She took the middle of the top section of hair, and placed it over the chignon. She then smoothed the side panels over the chignon, and banded the ends together. She took the remaining top panel, separated it into two parts and spread the hair ends over the elastic bands. She finished with Awapuhi Wild Ginger Finishing Spray.

Foxy Fullness

Misha Belfer, international creative director for Van Tibolli Corp., created voluminous party waves by first drying hair with a round brush. Next, he curled hair with a small iron, keeping the barrel two inches from the ends. To ensure longevity, he applied a light hairspray before styling and set the curls with clips. After cooling the curls, he broke them up with his hands. Next, Belfer added texture by pinching the ends of the hair and pushing them upward. He finished the look with GKhair Strong Hold Hairspray.
