Holiday Hair Series: Part 1 - Hapa Time

Holiday Hair Series: Part 1

Comfy

Today I have Part 1 in a special 2 Part Hair series with TRESsemmé! Of course it is the holiday season and so I thought it the perfect time to grab some Christmas decorations and embellish my hair! You can omit the decor but I encourage everyone to try doing something creative with their hair! I know I don't do it enough (if ever) but when I do, I really love it!

For this style, I’m turning to TRESemmé for some of my favorite styling products that will help style and hold this look throughout any holiday party or occasion .  The TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Mousse really gives me amazing volume but combined with the TRESemmé Fresh Start Renewing Dry shampoo which helps to absorb excess oil from my roots, the grip was perfect.

You can find these kinds of decorations in the wreath section at stores like Michael's (art stores). Have fun with it!

Begin with an ample amount of TRESemmé 24 hr Hour Body Mousse and run it throughout your hair to build additional volume before styling. (You may have to blow dry your hair afterwards to give it extra grip and texture.)

To start, I always like to curl my hair with about 1 inch sections. I'm using my Bombay Hair curling wand.

For the hair-do - separate a chunk of hair in the front and put the rest in a pony. Use a tiny non-slip hair tie.

Flip the pony up and through the center of the hair. Pull it through so it looks like this.
  camel-coat

Start Dutch braiding a part of the hair your first sectioned off. Leave the bangs or face framing layers.

Loosen the braid for a thicker look. This is called "pancaking."

Tuck the braid through the center of the inside out pony. Finish it all with some of the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Illuminating Shine Spray. Adorn the hair with flowers and wreath beads however you feel like embellishing your hair!

Voila!

When I was younger I remember my mom or aunt would braid my hair all the time. I especially remember them braiding my hair for sports or the hot weather. Now that I'm older I realize braids are not just for little kids or activities. You can use braids or special hairstyles to make your overall appearance more polished. It can be that extra touch your outfit lacks. I honestly had so much fun creating this hairstyle for you guys and hope you might try it!

Stay tuned for the next look!
