More Formal Hair Styles I Love!

Formal hair styles require a little TLC!

Isn’t she lovely? The model with the pale skin tone, blue/gray come hither eyes and volumous auburn hair is wearing an utterly stunning formal hair style, don’t you think? But you may ask . . . what makes this a ‘formal hair style? Haven’t you seen a similar hair style on Santa Monica Pier, but it looked more like the ‘boho’ look on Kourtney Kardashian? So what makes the difference?

“More Formal
Hair Styles”
The difference between a ‘boho’ half updo and a similar one that looks like a formal hair style is all in the prepping and finishing of the hair. What’s needed for this hair style to look more like a formal hair style is the use of the right hair care products, finishing tools and techniques. That might sound elementary however, I think many people underestimate the power of finishing techniques!

Half up formal hair style!

Kourtney Kardashian’s half updo for a formal occasion . . . not looking like a formal hair style.

For this formal hair style, run a shine hair care product through clean damp hair, like Paul Mitchell Gloss Drops. Next, prep the hair with a volumizing curl enhancer like Big Sexy Hair Blow Dry Volumizing Gel and blow dry. Lightly mist with a thermal protector and wrap 1 inch sections around a 1 or 1 � inch curling iron. Lightly mist cooled curls with finishing spray, like Sebastian Shaper Plus.

Pull through curls with fingers to separate. Backcomb crown, spray and smooth over top. Brush back sides and secure with criss-crossed pins just below the occipital bone. Leave out a curl or two to frame face. Lightly backcomb hair for fullness and spray with finishing spray.
