A sleek, low bun is the perfect complement to fierce holiday makeup.
To get this look, you start by making a deep side part and smoothing a small amount of
styling cream through damp hair, flattening the hair against the head.
After securing the ends into a ponytail at the nape of your neck, you then weave the tail into a
three-strand braid, coiled it up into a chignon, and secure it with bobby pins.
Finally, spread a drop of shine serum over the whole shebang (we like our own EC Weightless Glaze) for a finish as smooth as ice.




The Slicked Back

The slicked back hairstyle may look simple, but it makes a bold statement for holiday parties.
All you really need is mousse—and lots of it. On damp hair, put the EC Bounce Mousse 
from the roots to mid-length and blow-dried just the ends.
You can then add more mousse to the front, sides, and crown of the head, then used a Mason Pearson hair brush to blow-dry the hair flat against the head.
After smoothing out the bottom half of the hair with a flatiron,  spray the whole thing with hair spray and tempered any flyaways with a small teasing brush. Voila!




The Half-Up

This glamorous, sexy half-up look is trés sensual and perfect for holiday cocktail parties.
It’s also incredibly easy yet will make sure you look as elegant as ever.
Just tease the crown of your dry hair toward the front with a fine-tooth comb, stopping at your desired height.
Make sure to use a good quality hairspray (We recommend the EC  Light Hold Hairspray) and pin your newly created bouffant in place with a few bobby pins.
For classiness sake, try to hide the bobby pins or place a stunning barrette over top. Finish with the Organza Shine Spray for a flawless luster.
