Jen Atkin, cutter to the stars (and to moi!), has offered up the most fabulous Holiday hair tips:
Question: What’s in right now?
Also, hair accessories are very stylish. Try anything feathery. A feathery headband (piece) on messy hair is very hot right now. It dresses up your hair, stands out, but it’s easy. For girls with bangs, wear them down and add a net (Lilly Allen loves this look) or hat (ala Kylie Minogue).
Add a tourbon. Wigs Today on La Cienega sells great ones.. Scarfs are in too. It’s all very 1920’s parisian.
Question: What’s a quick, stylish Holiday updo that my readers can actually do themselves at home?
Answer: With dried, messy hair, take it in your hand, like a ponytail, at the nape of the neck. Roll it up and inwards. And pin with bobby pins. Let pieces fall to create a more romantic look. This is very Jessica Stam (model).
Question: Any other useful Holiday hair tips?
Answer: My hope for 2008 is that everyone stops with the extensions! It’s an easy fix but not worth the damage it causes to the hair!
