For black-tie events, if you don’t want to wear your hair up, go full-volume with it. It’s soft and feminine.

To ensure the happiest hue ending, take small steps. Start with highlights and work your way to a single process shade.

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 26


 

Dec. 26

 
The way you blow-dry affects the vibrancy of your hair. It’s the tension from your head to the brush while blowing your hair straight that makes it shiny.

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 25


 

Dec. 25

 
If you hate your brand new hair hue, fix it right away. Waiting leaves you dealing with the roots and the ends. Just make sure you go to a pro.

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 24


 

Dec. 24

 
Add flair to your hair this holiday season by clipping in a little color or adding some extra length with hair extensions.

Score a sexy party look! Try twisting hair up into a messy chignon and securing with bobby pins, leaving some strands to dangle loosely across your face and neck for a flirty effect.

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 22


 

Dec. 22

 
When making major shade changes with lots of room for error, it’s best to skip the at-home kits and indulge in a salon visit.

Dec. 21

 
Want a notice-me silhouette? Add spectacular shine with a glossing treatment and address root growth by coloring hair.

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 20


 

Dec. 20

 
Before you step out of the salon, make sure you’ll be able to recreate the style at home. Watch everything your stylist does and ask questions.

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 19


 

Dec. 19

 
To get on the path to great hair, start with your stylist. Find the busiest salon, book an appointment with them, and bring in a photo of exactly what you want.

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 18


 

Dec. 18

 
Got a case of the winter blues? Head to your salon for some beachy blonde highlights. A sun-kissed silhouette is a sure way to get you glowing.

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 17


 

Dec. 17

 
For day-to-day shine, use hair oil. Any leave-in conditioner that has a little bit of natural oil in it is good.

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 16

In order to tame flyaways and wear a smooth silhouette, look to pomade or moisturizing agents to help fight frizz.

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 15


 

Dec. 15

 
A good hairspray is brushable. You want a product that holds the shape but still allows the hair to be flexible.

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 14


 

Dec. 14

 
Work a chic updo! Slick back strands, secure with an elastic rubber band, wrap a piece of hair around the band and secure with a bobby pin for an elegant upsweep.

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 13


 

Dec. 13

 
When blow-drying, rough-dry your hair three quarters of the way before you start styling. You want a little bit of tenacity to the hair before round-brushing.

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 12


 

Dec. 12

 
Brush 101: Natural boar bristle brushes are best for dry hair, while soft, rubber-toothed brushes are best for damp hair.

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 10


 

Dec. 10

 
Keep your blown-out strands smooth by placing them on top of your head in a loose bun. This will also boost volume at your roots.

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 9

Keep your colored hair looking hot by using color-protective haircare products. They’re specially designed to minimize dryness, keep your color true and prevent additional damage.

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 8

Use a wide-tooth plastic comb while hair is wet. Once it’s towel-dried, switch to a good brush.

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 7

Using heat (from a blow-dryer) can intensify deep conditioning, as the heat causes the cuticle to open and the ingredients to penetrate.

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 6

Brush before shampooing to help remove product build-up and scalp flakes, as well as stimulate the scalp and promote blood flow to hair follicles.

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 5

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 4

Hair Tip of the Day – Dec 2
