During the work week I am rocking the same look every day – healthcare scrubs! Friends, it’s not a cute look so I look forward to evenings that I can pull out my jewelry, dress and heels for am upcoming party. I have fairly long hair so I try to get creative for special occasions. My top special occasion hair styles are very easy to create and stakes little time.
Side Knot: The long side knot is the perfect look for New Year’s Eve. Simply sweep your hair to one side. With your fingertips you can separate into thirds and create a loose braid. My teen (she also has long hair) showed me how to rock this look by leaving a few pieces out to frame my face. Hairspray is your friend! Make sure to add a small amount to hold the look into the New Year.
Updo: We all have our favorite updo. Whether you are rocking a classic up-do, braided bun, messy rocker updo, or a half bun hair pins are a necessity. Put your bobby pins away and always keep sturdy hair pins on hand. If you have long hair your sleek chignon or bun will not last to the wee hours of the night with a flimsy bobby pin.
Dramatic Side Waves: Weather you are going for the romantic look or the vamp (oh la la) look, you can turn a classic party dress and add drama with wavy locks. Add a small amount of styling mousse to your hair and blow dry into a side part or use a curling wand and wrap each section of your hair with the wand and hold in place for a few short minutes. Brush out the curls and add hair spray for long lasting dramatic waves. Try using Dove® Oxygen Moisture Root Lift (focusing on the roots) to blow dry and curl your locks. Your romantic do will have your loved one breathless.
Putting effort into your hair is not just for special occasions. Keeping our locks healthy during the winter months is crucial to maintain an overall healthy look. Your hair needs to stay hydrated and full of moisture to avoid dry, brittle hair during the winter months.
Using products like TRESemmé® 7 Day Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner can help keep your everyday beauty routine simple and effective. If you are fighting frizz like me, try adding TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth Heat Activated throughout your strands. Blow dry and then run your flat iron from root to tip. It can help give you the silky, shiny hair you desire year around.
This New Year’s Eve I am slipping out of my work scrubs and ringing in the New Year with a bang. But more importantly I’m going to focus on myself this year, or at least try to take a bath without one of my children asking “Whatcha doing?”!
