Not too busy to look friendly for the holidays

Since it is Christmastime again, we know that there will be many family get-togethers, office parties, church services and shopping.  So, since no one wants to look like a frump in the midst of having to do a gabillion things, here are a few little ideas to help you not only have an attitude in the spirit of Christmas and giving, but when people look at you they will see a delightful sight as well :)  Ok, let's start with the hair(since that is our specialty).

1. A good rule of thumb always blow dry your hair and use some sort of product and styling tool on it.  You can go anywhere from there. You can flat iron and shine spray it, or curl and hairspray.  This just gives you something to work with.  Once it is styled, you can sweep it into a side braid or half-up using bobby pins for your errands...then for a dressier look tease the hair in the crown and let hair down.

2. Accessorize and add lips.  Throw on some earrings and a belt and a CUTE big bag is as easy as Target, then throw on some brighter lips(check out heidi's) (This is for your errand-running)

3.  Bring a nice cardigan and a good pair of dressy shoes to exchange with your flats/boots that you wore for your errands.Then you can throw on some pumps and cardigan for the party. This could work nicely with a great pair of dark straight legged jeans!


Holiday hair tutorial

This holiday season give yourself a treat and do your own hair. A duo that looks like you got it at the salon but really only took a few minutes. A soft messy romantic side shingon with a cute holiday dress is sure to impress the guest!

Step 1

Using a round brush, blow-dry hair smooth and straight, focusing on the top sections.

Step 2

Once dry, use a large-barrel curling iron to create waves from the ears down.

Step 3

Build height and volume at the crown by teasing hair gently with a fine-tooth comb.

Step 4

Gather hair into a low ponytail. Twist it along the nape of your neck, pinning as you go.

Step 5

Once you reach your ear, shape the remaining hair into curls, and pin them back over the twist.

Step 6

Spray the hair with hairspray and shape bang area with hand. Give yourself a one last good spray and you're good to go with your holiday hair!

Give it a try!
