Legendary stylist and John Frieda Collection Creative Consultant Harry Josh tells you how to achieve—and hold—fabulously festive holiday hair:

Cocktail Party

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.”

Dinner Party

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.”

Pia wanted to share this creative storage solution she found!

I saw this wooden tea box when I was browsing around at the mall last week. I totally fell in love with the craftmanship AND the price (only US 16)…so much better than the plastic box. I definitely could pass this on to my daughter (perhaps including everything inside given I hardly ever used up any of my makeup, thanks to MAC for forever launching new stuff and to you for introducing arrays of beauty products and brands). My baby princess already said that she would willingly adopt the box after I got bored with it.

See what’s inside! Continue reading →
