Just splurged on a new party outfit but have no idea how to do your hair? Sometimes the idea of simply leaving your hair down or creating a half-up style is just too boring. A plain hairstyle not only gives off an “I don’t care” vibe but also makes your stunning new dress or sharp tailored blazer seem just a little less magical. We spoke with Guido Palau, a New York City-based hairstyling genius and Redken creative consultant, who works on fashion shows such as Alexander McQueen, Valentino, and Marc Jacobs, for some tips on how to style your locks this holiday season.
STRAPLESS PARTY DRESS
"You can go two different ways," says Guido. "Either opt for a sleek ponytail with a wet look to be ultra sophisticated or wear your hair in braids for a softer, more romantic look."
"You could go the curly route, but I always love a tight, pulled-back ponytail for a powerful, chic look," says Guido. "If you're wearing something structured and tailored, it's nice to follow those lean lines."
Beautylish recommends: Apply Redken Argan-6 Oil before pulling your hair into a ponytail for a sleek polished look.
