Hair How To

Festive Flair

Balmain Paris Hair Couture

Planning to take a break from the basic traditional hairstyles this festive season? We tell you how to play it subtly stylish with a no-mess top knot look to rock those pre-festive celebrations.

1.Brush your freshly washed hair thoroughly. Apply an anti-frizz styling product and brush it again. Straighten your hair with a flat iron and achieve a shiny clean hair look.

2. This step is tricky. Create a deep side parting and brush your bangs/ front layers to one side. Scoop the rest of the hair smoothly into a high ponytail.

3.For your ponytail, use a hair tie that doesn’t show. Twist the ponytail around its centre and wrap the hair in a clean knot. Secure it using U-pins and a hair tie, if needed.

4. Style the front section as you want—straight or waves. Make sure it is cleanly swept to one side and fixed in place with a shine-lock hairspray.

Pro Tip: Tame those flyaways with a strong-hold hairspray for a shiny clean look. You may accessorise your bun with an embellished pin or clip for a modern festive look.
