When it comes to looking your best, there is never a more important time to look hot with a styling hair do than at your yearly Christmas parties. And not only is it important to look your best with a fancy new dress, and some glam makeup, but you cannot forget about your hair. Because after all, you wouldn’t be looking and feeling so festive if your hair was doing the same old boring thing it did every year.

Yes, Christmas is the perfect festive season to pull out your curling iron, your hair straightener and your hair dryer and start your styling engines. You don’t have to spend a fortune at the beauty salon to have a gorgeous hair style; all you need is the right tools and a little imagination.

Of course no matter what style you are trying to achieve, you want it to look healthy, shiny and dazzling. Not frizzy, dry and damaged. So it is important that to create a healthy hair base, you dry your hair with an ionic hair dryer. Choose a hair dryer that has ceramic coated elements and the addition of tourmaline because these items will create negative ions that will actually dry the hair from the inside, out which means that it will reduce the amount of time it takes to dry your hair, giving you more time to style it into a beautiful up do. Besides giving you more time to style, which is a gift in itself, this type of quality hair dryer will make your hair look even healthier because the negative ions close each hair cuticle, allowing them to lay flat and retain their natural healthy shine.

It’s often easier to style your up do if you start with straight, sleek hair. Once your hair is completely dry, use a ceramic or titanium straightener to create that sleek look. Using a quality hair iron also adds shine and a natural luster to your hair that will make any up do look extra special.

Once you place a few strategic pins and clips, you can also use your hair straightener to flip up edges, smooth tendrils to frame your face or even create curls. Of course, if you’re looking for a very curly look, a quality curling iron will help you create the cascade of curls you are looking for. Choose a ceramic barreled curling iron for the smoothest curls, and after that, you must decide on the size of curls you are trying to create. If you want tight, corkscrew tendrils, look for a smaller barreled curling iron, and for soft, flowing waves, a bigger barrel will do the trick.

Creating festive up dos can be a lot of fun, and with the right tools for the job, it is easier than you think. Simply use your imagination and take some time to practice and soon you will have a styling new hair style for the party season that will dazzle all of your coworkers, friends and family members.
