Try These 1-Minute Holiday Hair “Fixes”

HIGHTAIL YOUR PONY


 
Pulling hair into a lofty pony at the crown gives your swept-back style a more playful look in mere seconds. But add Blonde Life Brilliant Glow Brightening Oil, and your instant party look takes on a special, healthy gleam. Before gathering strands, simply apply the product to your hands and emulsify; then smooth the oil over the crown of the hair and throughout the ponytail itself. Secure with an elastic and you’re out the door.
 

TRY A BETTER BUN


Pesky individual strands are known to pop up here and there when you’ve gathered hair into a bun. But when you want them to stay put (and add an out-of-this-world gleam to your updo), just try this clever trick: Apply Joico JoiMist Firm Finishing Spray to the bun, wrap it with a hair net, and set the look using a blow-dryer that has a cool-shot button. You’ll get a high-gloss ‘do that’s neat as a pin.
 

 

A SWEET TOOTHBRUSH TRICK


 
Lots of holiday styles involve pulling hair neatly away from the face (ponies, updos, half-do’s, you name it). But that often means loose, flyaway, or frizzy strands making a mess of your handiwork at the hairline. Try Richard’s “neatening” strategy: Simply apply JoiMist Firm Finishing Spray to a toothbrush (yes, a toothbrush) and smooth back any errant strands around your face. The tiny, firm bristles give you precise styling power, allowing you to easily blend those strands into your pulled-back style.
