HOLIDAY HAIR STYLES for Curly Girls
The holiday season is fast approaching so we want to make sure we look our best.
When we attend work parties, dinners, and those holiday functions it is equally important to be dressed for the occassion as well as wearing the right holiday hair style.
We curly haired women are so lucky to have curly locks. Curly hair is so versatile! We can wear a wash and wear straight out of the shower curly look or we can straighten curly locks, or place them in an up-do. The style options are endless.
A great curly style this season are loose sultry curls - just think Janet Jackson and you know what we mean.
Don't have time for a fancy hairstyle? That's okay, how about a wig? Ya, sure...Got for it! All the celebs are doing it, why not you! It's fun to try something different. But what's also great about wigs is you can have the colour and pizzazz without actually having to color your own hair. It doesn't get any better than that!
You can also style your hair in whichever style option you desire. Adding hair accessories can also be a nice addition too!
Check out these fabulous looks!
This is a fabulous style to wear to any party or holiday function. Curls fall softly along the side of the face for added dimension with a bit of sex appeal. Wet hair is placed in medium to large sized rollers - depending on hair length. After hair has dried rollers are taken out. The hair is twirled upwards around the finger and carefully pinned into place with bobby pins. Once the hair is completely in an updo, the hair is sprayed with hair spray and a light sheen spray for added shine. A small section of hair is left framing the front/side of the face for a sultry look.
Coils are a great refreshing style for any occasion. This look is simple. Wash and condition the hair as usual. A great product is Kerasoft shampoos and conditioners for added moisture.
Let hair dry only slightly adding some hair oil like SoftSheen-Carson Dark and Lovely Naturally Honey Kissed Hair Dress. It replenishs hair to relieve a dry itchy scalp. Formulated with honey, apricot oil and other essential oils, it nourishes hair and protects it from breakage.
Use a long handled comb taking a small section of hair and pulling the hair up like you're combing it but then twisting the hair around the end of the comb. Continuously do this taking tiny sections of the hair. A fantastic style for your holiday function!
A classic style that always turns heads!
This sleek look is great for a dinner party. If you have lovely curls and want to sleek-it-up, simply wash and blow dry hair. Use a leave-in conditioner like Infusium 23 to keep hair from tangling while blow drying.
After hair is dry, use a hot flat plate hair iron to smooth the hair. Add a sheen gloss for added shine. Try John Frieda Frizz-Ease Relax Texture Correcting Serum. It's packed with vitamins E and A along with aloe to smooth split ends and flyaways while also adding shine.
Dreadlocks are a beautiful natural style that can look simply ravishing in an up-do.
Here, locks are sectioned by taking two locks and twisted upwards. This process is continued throughout the hair continuously taking two locks and twisting them upwards while being held in place with a bobby pins for added sophistication.
Who ever thought locks could be so versatile.
Long curly locks are fabulous!
If you already have long curly locks it's easy to acquire this style. Simply wash and condition hair as usual. Let hair dry allowing curls to fall in place naturally. Take loose individual curls and just enhance the curl by using a medium sized curling iron around the curl.
Continue this throughout the hair. This process gives curls a ringlety look that's bold and inviting!
Flat twists are stunning!
These flat twists are easy to do and easy to manage. Hair is two-strand flat twisted close to the scalp. A very sleek style that keeps those curly q's tamed and gives you a break from daily stying.
Simply add some gel and moisturizer to the hair. Part the hair in vertical lines from the front hairline to the back of the neck. Flat-twist the hair one at a time in each vertical section. This style should last a week or more depending on your maintenance routine.
Casual or sophisticated, this style is very versatile.
Lovely natural locks always look fabulous when styled in an up-do.
This style is an attention grabbing look that is suitable for dinners, parties and holiday get-togethers.
Locks are washed and air dried. Roots are palm-rolled for a sleek neat look and then each lock is braided and corn-rolled from the base of the head to the top. Hair is then twisted and wrapped in a french braid and sectioned. Each section is then twisted in place and pinned with bobby pins.
A small section of hair is braided at the front when hair is damp and then released for a curly loose sultry evening look.
Fancy Updo Just for You!
This fancy holiday hairstyle is a great choice for any upscale occasion. Whether a Christmas party, holiday dinner or glam party, this style is always a winner.
The style consists of medium to large roller sets. Once the rollers are pulled out the hair of each curl at the back is pulled down.
Hair is wrapped losely around the finger and twirled into a tighter curl and held into place with a bobby pin. This is repeated several times with each hair peice.
The front can either be left loosly - like in this picture, or pulled back with the rest of the hair. This look is a classic!
