Holiday Hair Help
For some reason, I can’t find the motivation to go dress shopping for holiday parties this year. I think I’m going to unearth a dress from years past and focus on my hair, makeup, and accessories. If I don’t buy a new dress, I can redirect those funds to new shoes and makeup, right?!?
I have been thinking about how to spruce up my holiday hair routine. To be completely honest, I usually just blow dry my hair straight. If I’m feeling extra saucy, I will pull out the curling iron to create some loose curls. I know – BO-RING! I’m determined to break the habit this year!
- Professional Help. For one of the holiday parties, I already have an appointment at Blo, the new blow dry bar in my Boston neighborhood. I love the idea of an expert tackling my tresses. Even if they just blow dry my hair straight, they will surely do a far better job than I have done in years past. If you don’t have a blow dry bar near you, your regular salon probably also does great holiday hair. Ask your usual stylist/colorist who he/she recommends for your holiday hair. Usually there are one or two stylists who specialize in dramatic do’s!
- Add a Dash of Sparkle. I LOVE the look of sparkly antique (or faux vintage) brooches in hair. You can snag the real thing from any vintage/retro shop or search for a baubled brooch on Etsy.
- Pinsperation! Stillstumped, get some inspiration from Pinterest! You can find ideas and, frequently, instructions for just about any hairstyle. I recommend giving yourself a time limit or you may waste away your entire day perusing up-do’s, accessories, and braids! It could get hairy.
