Harry Josh on Getting Holiday Hair!
Legendary stylist and John Frieda Collection Creative Consultant Harry Josh tells you how to achieve—and hold—fabulously festive holiday hair:
Start the night out right with a chic chignon to complement your cocktail dress. “Before stepping out of the shower or towel-drying hair, squeeze out excess water then coat wet hair with a generous amount of Frizz-Ease Original Serum to prevent hair from frizzing as it dries,” says Josh. “Next, create a defined side part and blow dry hair with a flat paddle brush. Don’t worry about getting hair super straight—this style is supposed to have a little shape and volume. Once hair is dry, pull back into a loose side bun and secure using a clip or bobby pins, not a hair band. Spritz gathered hair with Sheer Blonde Crystal Clear Hairspray and smooth your palms over the hair’s surface to tame flyaways.”
Take your hair from chic chignon to show-stopping pony in the time it takes to refill your cocktail with a little touch-up of Frizz-Ease Thermal Protection Hair Serum. “Shake hair loose and flip it over, quickly bringing it together on the top of your head,” recommends Josh. “Secure hair using a loose band or clip, then place a drop of Frizz-Ease Thermal Protection Hair Serum in palms and run through your pony for a smooth finish. The serum adds definition and shine to the natural wave created by the chignon. Keep hair frizz-free throughout the night with a spray of Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hairspray.”
Late Night Party
Take a break between parties to let your hair down for the night. “Loose waves are a perfect late-night look—holiday hair doesn’t always have to be an updo,” Josh advises. “Wrap individual sections of hair around your finger, starting with the under-layers, and spritz lightly with Luxurious Volume All-Out Hold™ Hairspray to create waves and boost body on the go. The spray provides all-night hold and major volume for no-fuss, fabulous style.”
