Holiday Hair Tutorial

It’s hard to believe it’s November!  I just love this time of year and am already getting in the holiday spirit (premature I know.)  Joico and I thought it would be fun to share two easy hair tutorials with you as we head into the holiday season.  I always wear my hair down out of convenience, but wanted to switch things up a bit, so I created this simple side braid and three piece bun.  The two most important components of these hairstyles were properly teasing the hair and using enough volumizing spray.  The volumizing spray is by far my favorite Joico product because it instantly adds body to my typically flat hair.

Joico and Bare Minerals are generously offering one lucky reader this holiday hair and makeup set ($700 value.)  9 first prize winners will receive a separate holiday hair and makeup set ($300 value) and 2 second prize winners will receive another hair and makeup set ($200 value) – so be sure to enter here!  FYI the giveaway ends on November 17th.  I hope you enjoyed the video!

    Your videos are so amazing! They’re of such a high quality and are thoroughly entertaining and informative. I cannot wait to try that bun out! And I’ll definitely be teasing my hair a little bit at the roots for added volume from now on.
