Perfect Party Hair For New Year’s Eve

If you’re still looking for the perfect New Year’s Eve hair, this is a great silhouette that won’t take too long. Created by The René Furterer Paris Artistic Team, led by Oliver Szilagyi, all you need is two covered elastic bands and a curling iron.

Part hair in the center and French braid two small sections on each side from the part to the temples; secure with bands. If you want to add a little detail to the back, continue the braids in a “wreath” around the head and join together at the center back of head.

Use your curling iron to bend hair into curls, then brush into waves. Tease hair if you want more volume.

Mist hair with a glosser for extra shine.

The bonus part of this look? As the night goes on, just shake through the roots with your fingers to bring back the volume and end the night on a “sexily tousled” vibe!

Revamp long hair by asking your stylist to take off some inches, chop in shorter layers and chop sideswept bangs.

Everyday Chic

Looking for short-chic inspiration? Look no further than this swingy custom bob by stylist Lora “Lorann” Thompson of Michael’s Salon & Spa in Dayton, OH. To achieve the voluminous finish, Thompson blow-dried the hair with a volumizing foam, then used a 1- 1/4″ curling iron to create curves, and a flat iron along the edges. A touch of crafting clay was used to add shine and detail the style. Gorgeous!

Hairspray has a tendency to dull brown locks. Instead, try a spritz of shine serum.

Add a little sparkle to your nails with the “shattered glass” nail art trend. CND’s International Education Ambassador Fiona Wallace shares how this look is created in the salon with professional CND products…

>>One thin layer of CND Shellac in the shade Clearly Pink is applied. This layer is not cured.

>>With the tip of an orange wood stick, CND Additive Crystal Crush is applied to nails, piece by piece. A variety of medium and smaller shards are pressed into the sticky layer of uncured Clearly Pink. Nails are cured for one minute.

“As nail professionals, we love and are excited by trends like this,” shares Wallace. “They allow us to take ‘painting nails’ to a new level.” Head to your favorite nail salon and see what fab creation they can do for you!

Beauty Advice: December 29









Minimize breakage by making sure hair is completely wet before shampooing.

You’ve Got That James Dean Daydream…


James Dean - Sexy Hair Ads

James Dean. Even Taylor Swift still sings about him and his iconic look. So it’s no wonder haircare brand Sexy Hair has chosen him to be the brand ambassador for their Style Sexy Hair line. Starting in April, you’ll see his smoldering glances and whipped-up hair in ads and more.

We say we’re looking forward to April.
