Hair Recipes by Sean James: Christmas Curls

Author: Esther Kim & Sean James 

There are always so many events and get-togethers during the bustling holiday season. We all want to look our best, especially for the pictures. Here are our secret formulas to achieving fabulous and festive Holiday Hair looks while saving time, all from the mind of our talented Artistic Director: Sean James.


Super Model Holiday Hair Inspired by Cindy Crawford

1) To towel-dried hair, add two palmfuls of Full Blown mousse to your roots and then brush through your hair with your Unbrush.

2) Blow-dry your hair upside down to add as much volume as possible. Set the heat to whichever setting you feel comfortable with and keep the blow dryer 10 inches away from your head to maintain continuous airflow. Once done drying, smooth out your hair with a large round brush.

3) Point a 1 ¼” curling iron with the nose or tip to the ground, then wind your hair vertically around the iron away from your face. Continue in this manner with all sections of your hair, winding away from the face on both sides of the head. Each section of hair should be no thicker than the barrel and no longer than the length of the barrel. (To protect yourself, we suggest you use a heat protectant glove on the hand grabbing sections of your hair.)

4) Pin each curl section to your head. When done, spray with Stay Put.

5) Brush your hair out with the Unbrush. Add a few drops of Sheer Remedy to your hair. Gather all of your hair into a ponytail and smooth the product through the hair using your fingers.

6) Tease or backcomb at the roots by repeatedly combing the hair towards the scalp (which purposely causes the hair to get tangled). Tousle hair back off of your face and to your best side then brush through with your fingers.

Ingredients:
Full Blown mousse
Blow Dryer
Large round brush
1 1/4” curling iron
Stay Put hairspray
Sheer Remedy
Unbrush

1) To towel-dried hair, add one palmful of Full Blown mousse to your hair and spray High Altitude on your roots.

2) Blow-dry your hair until completely dry.

3) Use a 1 ½” curling iron to curl each section of hair, then pin onto the head. Continue in this manner with all sections of your hair. (To protect yourself, we suggest you use a heat protectant glove on the hand grabbing sections of your hair.)

4) Let cool and spray all over your hair with Stay Styled.

5) Unpin your hair, sweep all of your hair off to one side, then completely brush through hair using the Unbrush.

Ingredients:
Full Blown Mousse
Blow Dryer
High Altitude
Pins
Unbrush
Stay Styled hairspray

Long-lasting Christmas Curls

1) Start by spraying your hair with Fresh Start Prep and Primer heat protectant. 

2) Add a tennis-ball amount of Full Blown mousse to your hair and work it through from the roots to the ends.

3) Blow-dry your hair. If your hair is extremely textured or curly, smooth it out with a brush until completely dry. If your hair is slightly wavy, blow-dry with a diffuser until completely dry.

4) Take your hair and split it in half horizontally. For both the left and right halves, pin the top half of each section to the head. Curl bottom portion of the hair one section at a time, winding one section forward, the next backward, and so on by alternating until finished.

5) Spray your hair using Stay Styled: first, flip your hair upside down and spray at the roots, then flip your hair back and spray into place.

Ingredients:
Fresh Start Prep and Primer
Full Blown mousse
Blow Dryer
Hair Clips
1 “ Curling Iron
Stay Styled hairspray

While flat irons save us from our frizzy-haired woes, there’s certainly a right and wrong way to use them. At the end of the day, hairstyling is as much a science as it is an art, and there are things to be cautious about. Before you grab the iron, take a look at our Do’s & Don’ts of flat ironing to make sure that your styling methods aren’t falling flat (the bad kind of flat!).
