Haute Holiday Hair!


haute holiday 1

Whether you’re attending a glam-worthy party or grabbing drinks with the girls, rock an unforgettable style this holiday season! Cue: The low ponytail. Not only is this style fashion-forward and feminine, it’s perfect for any occasion. For designer Sherri Hill’s Spring/Summer 2015 runway show, hair pro Tammy Mixon for the CHI Miss Universe Style Illuminate product line, crafted a gorgeous low ponytail with fab volume that’s truly unforgettable. Here, SHG gives you the style deets!

    1. haute holiday 2Begin the look at the top creating a side diagonal part.
    2. Starting at the top crow, take one-inch sections and spray with CHI Miss Universe Style Illuminate Flexible Hair Spray. With a 1 and 1/4-inch iron, curl the section on base leaving the ends free about two inches. Hold for a few seconds, then clip.
    3. Continue curling the back and sides in the same manner being sure to spray each section with hair spray.
    4. At the top, section the hair following the same diagonal part and continue to curl the hair as above. After the hair has cooled, remove pins and brush.
    5. haute holiday 3Next with your fingers lift multiple sections throughout the head spraying each one with dry shampoo. As you are spraying each section, shake it lightly to dry to create a light airy look.
    6. At the back of the head, part-off a triangle section from the crown to the nape. Back brush this section loosely and allow the hair to fall naturally.
    7. Leaving this triangle section free, begin to gently back brush the top and sides for volume smoothing the surface with your fingers allowing any shorter sections to cascade around the face naturally.
    8. haute holiday 4With your fingers, begin to comb the hair back including the sides and create a low ponytail. The key to this style is keeping the triangle section out of the ponytail. Leaving this free adds length and fullness to the pony. While styling, also make sure to keep the volume, texture and fullness. Secure with a rubber band.
    9. To hide the elastic tie, take a small section from underneath and wrap around to cover. Spray with firm hairspray.
    10. To finish, back-brush the triangle section from underneath and also back brush the ponytail blending the two together for fullness. Arrange pieces and spray with firm hairspray. In addition to using a brushing motion to add more texture to the ponytail, use your fingers to piece and pull small sections.
