It’s here! The most wonderful time of the year is once again upon us. Which means it’s the season to glam up your hair game – even if you’re only doing it for the ‘gram! — and show some sparkle and shine that will take you from formal office party to casual family gatherings in a few easy steps. Ready? Let’s take a deep dive into Pure’s Holiday hair trends for 2019!
Classic Chignon With Padded Velvet Headband
Super romantic and always elegant, a chignon goes a long way to dress up any special occasion. But particularly when you pair it with a padded velvet headband, THE hair accessory of the moment! A sleek variation on the traditional bun, you can try a chignon that sits lower at the nape of the neck for a new twist on a timeless, beautiful look. All you need to create this classic updo are bobby pins, a hair elastic, and hairspray. Make a tight ponytail and secure with an elastic, then bring it all together and twist it in a top knot with bobby pins. Add a mist of strong hold hairspray. Tip: hair that’s not freshly washed will stay put longer. Or just add a slight dusting of dry shampoo to make it grittier. Finish by fitting the headband behind your ears.
Half-Up Half-Down Wavy Ponytail
If you’re a huge fan of beach waves and balayage, of course you can dress up your signature locks for the Holidays. Because fun and pretty definitely go hand in hand with quick and easy for this look. Simply scrunch in with your hands a bit of hair mousse though your hair. After it’s been air dried, separate hair in two sections and secure the top one with a clear elastic, while fluffing out the bottom. In the mood to test out a big nineties trend? Add a satin scrunchie. Bonus points if it has a retro-vibe print à la Gucci. Now you’re ready to party all night!
Side-Swept Curly Hair
Another favourite evening look is the cascade of curls inspired by old school Hollywood glam. Think retro charm of silver screen goddesses. And even if it looks sophisticated, this is a hairstyle that’s relatively easy to create. Just apply a dab of styling cream to damp hair before blow drying, and smooth out the strands with a boar bristle brush to make the hair sleek and shiny. Next, separate the hair into small sections to create your cascade of curls with a curling iron. For a super fashion look and a big dose of glam, add a row of rhinestone barrettes. Voilà!
