Celebrate with Sophisticated Sparkle

This season, indulge in a little head-to-toe glitz. Infuse your brunette hair with celebratory shine, paint on a glittery nail polish, and make your wardrobe holiday-worthy with just the right amount of sparkle. When you combine dazzling details with classic neutrals, you'll achieve a look that's both captivating and modern. Read on for our essential tips for complete holiday shine.

Holiday Sparkle Essential #1: The Right Glitter at the Right Time

  1. 1. Pull off sequins the classy way: pair a long-sleeved, glittery blouse or tank with more muted fabrics on the bottom—sleek black trousers or a graphite skirt. Or complement a daring, matte-finished mini-dress with a pair of glittery stilettos.
  2. 2. Shine on in…red? Yes! The holidays are a perfect time to trade your little black dress for a crimson one. The colour is a chic complement for rich brunette tones. Just be sure to choose a more neutral shoe—avoid matchy-matchy red—to look pulled together, not overly done.
  3. 3. It's the right season for makeup that glitters, but to keep your look sophisticated, play up one feature rather than all of them. Swipe on metallic eyeshadow, dab on high-shine lip colour, or play up your cheeks with some shimmery blush.

Holiday Sparkle Essential #2: A Glistening Brunette Style

  1. 1. When your beautiful brunette shines, the rest of your look tends to follow suit. Drench your hair in pure shine with Brilliant Brunette® Liquid Shine Illuminating Shampoo and Conditioner.
  2. 2. For a sleek style, blow dry hair with a round brush, or for more informal waves, let hair air dry. Once completely dry, pull strands into a chic, side-swept updo and pin with a decorative gemstone brooch. Secure the look with a few bobby pins.
  3. 3. For a high-gloss finish on any style, rub a small amount of Brilliant Brunette® Liquid Shine Shock® Perfecting Glosser between palms and smooth lightly over the surface of dried hair. The super-light formula instantly smoothes flyaways and glosses away imperfections.
