So much for resorting to a classic slicked-back pony when the invitation says “fancy.” International hair superstar and Joico Guest Artist, Vivienne Mackinder, has dreamed up a portfolio of holiday hair looks that take gorgeous to new heights…and we’re bringing the party to you. Here’s the scoop on these sexy, stunning styles from her 2017 Silhouette Collection (plus the products to pull them off):
Harkening back to the days of old Hollywood glamour, this Marilyn-inspired loose updo encourages a chin-length halo of sexy, voluminous waves without sacrificing an ounce of actual length. With some clever teasing, hidden bobby pins, and strategic curls here and there, you’ll have them at Hello. (Or should we say, Halo?)
Half-up, half-down, but fully fabulous! The secret to this heightened hair look: French Lace, a light teasing technique that creates volume despite the illusion of silky-smooth hair; and a Flat Wrap on the ends to lend piece-y appeal.
Your hair will be long on style and short for the evening only with this dramatically plush faux bob look. It gets its secret hold and drama from Vivienne’s unique Push/Pull teasing technique.
Calling this utterly sophisticated ‘do a “ponytail” would be ‘do-ing it an injustice — as it’s actually a cleverly deconstructed French Twist that hides the magic of a Mohawk for height.
When elaborate French braids scare you off, take a look at this genius mass of rope braids — impossibly intricate-looking, but actually a cinch to master. Coupled with tons of texture, the style is one of the most beautiful ways to keep hair up and off this face this season.
