The final stretch of 2017 is here!! and just in time for your big NYE plans I’ve collaborated with the amazingly talented hairstylist, Catalina Lopez of the Lab A Salon to create a fun, festive look you can duplicate at home before your big night out.
This look is so young and fresh and its the perfect mix of polished and playful. Below is the step-by step photo guide. I hope you’ll use this 5-step tutorial as instruction, inspiration, or as a resource to give to a hairstylist in your area to work from. Make it your own and have fun with it.
Cheers to ringing in the new year in style! Xx.
Step 1: Spritz texturizing spray through hair, especially at roots, and section off and secure a small pony tail at the crown of your head.
Step 2: Isolate a single strand of hair from the pony tail and wrap it around the pony tail tie to conceal the rubber band and secure with a Bobbi pin. Essentially you’ll repeat steps 1-2 down to the nape of your neck. We ended up with four pony tails in all for hair of my length.(Catalina flipped the first pony tail at my crown forward on top of my head just to temporarily get it out of her way 🙂 )
Step 3: Once you have your pony tails, with the rubber bands concealed. You’ll split the top pony tail at the crown of your head into two strands. and secure with Bobbi pins behind the descending pony. Repeat this step all the way down, to create a twisted waterfall effect.
Step 4: Secure and conceal last pony tail and curl ends to create waves and texture. I love the contrast of a messy, edgy undone base to balance out the sleek look on top.
Step 5: Finish with shine and high hold hairspray and if you want to be extra…add in some fun jeweled pieces for sparkle and flair.
Tag me in your NYE looks!! Im believing that 2018 is going to be our best year yet!
