With holiday season upon us, it’s time to do something different and glam up your look. To help you look beautiful for holiday parties this year, in collaboration with Conair, today’s beauty guide shares two easy-to-do festive holiday hairstyles using the Infiniti PRO by Conair® 2-inch & 1 ½-inch Spin Air Brush and the Infiniti PRO by Conair® Diamond Brilliance™ Diamond-Infused Ceramic Smoothing Hot Brush.
Festive Holiday Hairstyles
One of these festive holiday hairstyles is a casual, feminine look that’s ideal for holiday office parties, family get-togethers, and laid-back gatherings at home. The other hairstyle is a more sophisticated, glamorous take on an up-do, making it the perfect look for chic parties, holiday galas, and New Year’s Eve.
The Conair Spin Air Brush is a great styling tool for adding volume and body to your hair, while imparting lustrous shine and a silky finish. This half-up, half-down hairstyle takes just a few minutes to create, and is a pretty look for casual celebrations and everyday wear. Plus, it doesn’t compete with your outfit or jewelry, and highlights your face, making it the perfect accessory.
STEP 1: After washing hair with volume-boosting shampoo and conditioner, start by blow-drying your hair 80% until nearly dry. It doesn’t matter if your hair isn’t perfect, as the Conair Spin Air Brush will help de-frizz and smooth your hair.
STEP 2: Using the 2-inch brush attached to the styling wand, plug in the unit, and turn on to the ‘high’ setting. Since this hairstyle is about soft volume, this sized brush will help you style your hair while drying it, as it generates concentrated ions to reduce frizz and add luster.
STEP 3: Clip the top half of your hair up, while you focus on styling the bottom section, to smooth the cuticles.
STEP 4: Put 1-2″ sections of hair into the Conair Spin Air Brush, working the brush through each section. For maximum volume and body, section and detangle hair. Place the brush in hair, close to the roots, and brush through the section. Move the brush through the hair towards the ends. As you reach the end, press the appropriate button to rotate the brush away from your head. As the brush spins, resist the rotation by pulling the brush downward. Tension created through the section of hair will help smooth hair faster.
You’ll immediately notice how soft and shiny your hair looks as you use the Conair Spin Air Brush. Plus, it will give your hair a finished look, since it creates a rounded curl at the bottom of each section of hair.
STEP 5: After styling the bottom section of hair, work on the top section, starting at the roots. To help you build volume and fullness, lift the hair upwards away from your scalp as you style it with the tool.
STEP 6: Now that your hair has softness, body, and volume, take a small amount of hair on the top of your head and pull it up and back. Before securing with bobby pins, push the hair up a little to give it some ‘oomph’ and fullness.
Put on a little lipstick, some glamorous jewelry, and you’re ready to head off to that holiday party.
The next festive holiday hairstyle is inspired by Spanish dancers, as it’s a chic bun that makes you look sophisticated and dramatic. The key to this hairstyle is to get your hair incredibly straight and smooth, which is why the Infiniti Pro by Conair Diamond-Infused Smoothing Hot Brush is a great tool to use for this look.
The Infiniti Pro by Conair Diamond-Infused Smoothing Hot Brush uses advanced ionic technology to transform hair into silky, straight styles. The combination of nylon, silicone and ceramic-coated bristles gently guide the hot paddle brush through hair, helping to boost sheen and make hair smooth. Plus, the diamond-infused ceramic technology helps protect hair from heat damage. Not to mention – with three heat settings, it can be used on all types of hair.
STEP 1: Start with dry hair that is free of styling products.
STEP 2: Clip the top half of your hair up, so that you can smooth the bottom section of hair first.
STEP 3: Turn the Infiniti Pro by Conair Diamond-Infused Smoothing Hot Brush on to the appropriate setting for your hair (low for thin hair, medium for average, or high for thick hair). Using the hot brush, run the brush through small sections of hair, starting with the underneath side (to work out any kinks), and finishing with a run-through on the top side, to de-frizz and smooth hair.
STEP 4: After styling the bottom section of hair is done, style the top section of hair, making sure to thoroughly straighten all strands.
STEP 5: Using a wide-tooth comb, create a straight part down the center of your hairline.
STEP 6: Using an elastic band that blends in with the color of your hair, pull your hair back into a tight, low ponytail and secure with the elastic band.
STEP 7: Using a few bobby pins, wrap your ponytail into a bun and pin the loose strands.
With a hairstyle that’s this striking, just add elegant chandelier earrings, a bold red lip, and baroque-inspired necklace to complete the look.
