While I'm not usually one to give into the pressure that surrounds NYE (no, really) I have to admit I've been planning my hair & beauty look way in advance this time (I'll be sharing my fave Holiday make-up soon!). Since I don't have super long hair and I'm clearly not a hair style expert, I prefer something easy that's still different from my everyday hair routine. Sooo, I opted for beachy waves with a sleek side part, to make it more festive and chique. These are the super simple steps I followed:
- Wash your hair the usual way and dry it in a way that your natural texture is enhanced (my hair is a bit wavy by nature). I used the new Dyson Supersonic hair dryer that comes with a diffuser (a kind of funnel-shaped piece that you can place on top of the dryer) that distributes the air that's blown into your hair so that it gets more volume and no frizz.
- Roughly comb through your hair with a big brush (I love this ceramic paddle brush from Moroccanoil) and create a side part. I don't create the side part up until this point, because it adds more volume if you first dry it in a middle part and then swoop the hair to one side.
- Flatten the top part of your hair to make it more sleek and less poofy.
- Finish with the Shu Uemura Sheer Lacquer hair spray to keep everything into place.
