Light Up The Season

With everything shimmering during the holiday season, why shouldn’t your hair? We’ve got the styles to show off your colour and tips to heat up your hue, even on cold winter nights.

RED THAT DAZZLES ALL THE WAY

This is your season to shine, redheads! Turn heads at your next party with a pin-up era inspired style. Simply use a large barrel curling iron on side-parted hair and create large curls. Let your hair cool before running a brush through your curls to create a soft, natural wave. The result is voluminous roots and soft ringlets that show off all your gorgeous red, gold, and copper hues.

Turn up the heat by going a shade or two darker than usual with your hair colour for added depth. The rich, mahogany tones achieved through John Frieda® Precision Foam Colour 5RV Radiant Red® Medium Burgundy is a perfect on-trend holiday pick-me-up. With the Shade Selector at your fingertips, it couldn’t be simpler to pick the perfect complimentary John Frieda® Precision Foam Colour shade. Or, rev up the shine without affecting colour with Clear Shine Luminous Glaze. Just shampoo, condition, then glaze to give your hair newfound vibrancy. It’s the perfect holiday pick-me-up.

MERRY & BRIGHT BLONDES – WITH A BANG

Tis’ the season to make your blonde bright. Who says you have to go darker during the cooler months? Turn the light on your locks with Sheer Blonde® Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray, which works with the heat of your blow-dryer to gradually lighten. To create highlights, spray on select strands from root to end, then comb through and blow-dry.

Show off your brightened hue with brow-grazing bangs. Think you can’t pull off bangs? Think again. Bangs offer versatility and dimension to your existing style while waking up your face and putting your beautiful blonde colour in the limelight. If you have thinner hair, go with a bold bang to create the illusion of thicker hair.

BRUNETTE GREETINGS OF GORGEOUSNESS

Give yourself the gift of a salon-quality blowout at home and enhance shine to play up your warm dimensions. After washing and conditioning your hair, towel-dry and apply Brilliant Brunette® Liquid Shine Shine Shock® Perfecting Glosser. It will help smooth flyaways, seal split ends and deliver a high-gloss finish that enlivens your multi-dimensional tones.

Next, clip off sections of hair, so you’re only working with small segments at a time. Then let the blow-drying begin. Using a medium or large size round brush, start in the back and move brush and nozzle of blow-dryer together down lengths of your hair. Move all around your head, focusing on the roots first, then working on the mid-shaft and down to the ends. Work slowly and evenly as you move from section to section. If you feel like you need added control or that it’s hard to maneuver the brush and blow-dryer, try holding the blow-dryer near the nozzle instead of at the handle. Polish your finished style with a dramatic side part and let the celebration begin!
