I was sitting in my car in a parking lot when I had the call.
With Real Simple.
To talk about collaborating on some simply holiday hairstyle tutorials made especially for realsimple.com.
It was one of the most exciting phone calls of my life. I love, love, Real Simple. It's the only magazine that arrives in my mailbox and causes all other activities to stop so I can look through it.
So when they asked if I was interested, I sort of laughed silently to myself.
Yes. More like "coolest opportunity of a lifetime".
I've created 3 holiday hair tutorials so you are completely set for any event this season. You have your choice of half up, all up with a braid, and loosely up with a twist. What I love about these styles is that you can start with nearly any texture (straight, curly, wavy) and get a pretty similar effect. So, if you have an event on a friday night after work, you don't need to start over with your hair. Simply build from whatever style you were wearing that day.
Bobby pins will be your friend. And hairspray. But strategic placement of hidden clear elastics and separating the hair into workable sections will help you succeed with any of these styles.
Each style has a photo step by step AND a video. (find links to videos at the bottom of this post) Click here to see the styles!
Let me know what you think! Which one is your favorite?
