Is “sparkle” the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a party or the holidays?

Prep.

Start with hair that is not so clean and has some body to it… Ask any stylist and we’ll all tell you that we prefer working with a dirty mane when styling hair for a special event. That way, you get the most out of your hair products plus lasting structure. A sleek look (like the one we’re creating here) is always a great option for managing next day hair when you’ve got somewhere to be but no time for a salon visit. With the right style, you can really make hair shine by using days of product and natural hair oil to your advantage.
