6 Holiday Updos We Love!

6 Holiday Updos We Love!

It’s not too soon to start thinking about your hair for the upcoming holiday season. “Hold the dates” are already being sent out! Instead of last-minute panic over how to wear your hair in a style that goes with your gorgeous outfit, here are our favorite six updos. When it comes to hairstyles this season it’s time to have a real “look.” The days of simply brushing your hair and going for that bed-head look are over. It’s time to make a grand entrance…so read on!

Take an ordinary bun and add glamour with a low side part. Teasing at the crown and an over-the-ear sweep heighten its drama. Blow out your hair with Blow Out Cream for a smooth shine and knot it at the nape of your neck, draping one side over your ear. Finish with Refinish Control Hairspray for a style that’ll last the entire night!

Holiday Updos We Love

The French twist is always elegant but add dramatic height and you can make it over-the-top impact! Blow out your hair and set it with Velcro rollers, then separate and tease the top section using Reshape Root Lifter to build body as you go. Pull back the sides, twist and secure with pins. Finish by brushing back the top layer so it’s smooth. Use a little Restyle Instant Sculpting Taffy to keep the strands secure.

Here’s another! The halo braid is wildly chic yet needs only basic braiding skills and a few bobby pins. Start with a little THE CHAMP Conditioning Dry Shampoo to create some hold! Form a center part, separate your hair on either side of your head and braid pigtails. Keep the braid thick and loose. Then wrap each section over your head, securing it in place with bobby pins as you go.

The large teased bun is a stunner. Volume is the key to making hair appear thick, thick, thick! Start with Moxie Magnifying Mouse to make it fuller. Tease your crown as well as the large bun. To create a larger chignon, use a bun maker underneath your backcombed locks.

One of the best things about choosing an up-do (instead of going for a full chop) is the lack of commitment involved. All you have to do is add some glitter! One of our all-time favorite looks is to wrap a glittery, sparkly headband around an updo for instant full glamour.

If you really want to go slightly casual, you can always create the “updo ponytail.” It combines both the sophistication of an updo with the fun twirl of a ponytail. And it’s still quite elegant! Learn how to master one by clicking here.

This holiday season is the time to pull out ALL the stops and you’ll be a real head-turner, for sure!

  • Spray Reshape Root Lifter onto roots and blow-dry upward. Then mist with Tousled Texturizing Mist.
  • Curl hair in small 1-inch sections. The smaller the section, the tighter the curl and the tighter the curl, the bigger the hair!

FEEL LIKE NEW WITH A NEW HAIR DO

[wc_divider style=”dashed” line=”single” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=””]

Have you ever left a beauty salon feeling wonderful and confident, or frustrated and uncomfortable? Studies have shown that our hair can have a great impact on how we see and feel about ourselves, and even on how we behave in social environments. A hair style can even alter the perception that other people have of us. But that’s ok, diversity is a beautiful thing! And hair can be so versatile and fun, that by changing your style you can easily reinvent yourself over and over again.
[wc_spacing size=”5px”]
We see a lot of this among Hollywood stars. They have good and bad hair days, just like us, but they’re constantly setting the pace for new trends in fashion, hair and makeup, and many times they are the ones who inspire fashion designers. Good thing awards show season is just getting started and we can get a few ideas from what’s ‘in’ now!
[wc_spacing size=”5px”]
At the Golden Globes for example, we saw a few really pretty cool hairdos, some of which are not hard to put together at home, like Eva Longoria’s old-fashioned low chignon, Rachel McAdams’ high pouf, and Taraji P. Henson’s messy side coif. We loved these for their elegant simplicity and full of body-ness!
[wc_spacing size=”5px”]
And you know what can definitely help you add more body and volume to your locks? You got it: MONAT! Each one of the MONAT products and Systems are specially formulated to nourish your hair and scalp and help you have visible longer, fuller, stronger, youthful-looking hair.

REJUVENIQE™

REJUVENIQE™ Oil Intensive

[wc_spacing size=”30px”]

The science behind the proprietary formula

[wc_spacing size=”10px”]

REJUVENIQE™ Oil Intensive’s exclusive ingredient is Abyssinian Oil. Abyssinian oil comes from the crambe abyssinica plant native to the Mediterranean and East Africa, and currently the oil is produced on Prince Edward Island in Canada.

[wc_divider style=”dashed” line=”single” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=””]

[wc_row][wc_column size=”two-third” position=”first”]

[wc_spacing size=”20px”]

Abyssinian oil is a 100% natural, non-gmo product.
This eco-friendly oil is fully biodegradable and free of any harmful additives.
Abyssinian Oil has a unique molecular structure that is not found in any other naturally occurring oil.

It has been shown to significantly improve the skin’s complexion and the hair’s luster through unique Omega 9 fatty acids composed of Erucic Acid, Oleic Acid, Linoleic Acid, Palmitic Acid and Stearic Acid.

In our search for a unique product unlike any other on the market, we began to meticulously engineer what has now become our signature blend. When it came down to buttoning up the formula for REJUVENIQE Oil Intensive, we chose Abyssinian Oil not only for it¹s remarkable rejuvenating properties, but also because of the way it is grown and processed. We are committed to ensuring our Abyssinian growers are using sustainable farming practices in their daily operations.

Where we source it from

We are committed to ensuring our Abyssinian growers are using sustainable farming practices in their daily operations. Farming these days is not a simple task, and many factors must be considered. All of our crops are grown on land with known, suitable cropping history and sustainable rotations with other crops. Abyssinian fields are identified and logged to provide a permanent record of previously grown and nurtured crops.

[wc_divider style=”dashed” line=”single” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=””]

[wc_row][wc_column size=”two-third” position=”first”]

[wc_spacing size=”20px”]

The production of healthy, viable Abyssinian relies on the planting of unmodified, high quality seeds. Through rigorous testing and evaluation, we select only the best hybrids available.

Oftentimes this method of producing multiple lots of seed allows us to personally choose the best seed available for producing the purest oil. We maintain and monitor all Abyssinian crops to ensure that there is no contamination with genetically modified organisms from other crops grown nearby.

[/wc_column][wc_column size=”one-third” position=”last”]

[/wc_column][/wc_row]

How we’re giving back

Our production team is dedicated to moderating consumption of all natural resources through recycling, process improvements and innovations that minimize consumption while improving efficiency. We also give back a percentage of our profits to the farmers who grow and maintain our crops in the spirit of gratitude for our planet.

QUICK FACTS ABOUT HAIR LOSS

Did you know…?

  • According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), Female Pattern Hair Loss, also known as androgenetic alopecia, affects about 50 million men and 30 million women in the US.
  • Up to 40% of women in America experience hair loss.
  • It’s normal to lose between 50 and 100 hairs each day.

[wc_spacing size=”20px”]

Besides hereditary thinning or baldness, other possible causes of hair loss include:

  • Stress experienced due to traumatic events, such as the loss of a loved one
  • Nutritional deficiencies caused by low intakes of protein, iron, vitamin D, and calcium
  • Hormonal changes like those experienced during menopause
  • Illnesses or medical conditions such as thyroid disease, diabetes, lupus or anemia
  • Excessively pulling your hair throughout the years with tight ponytails, buns, and braids
  • Excessive use and application of chemicals such hair relaxers, perms, bleaches, and dyes

[wc_spacing size=”20px”]

How MONAT Can Help

Excessive sebum in the scalp, often accompanying thinning hair, is attributed to general inflammatory conditions in the body. MONAT’s seven Treatment Systems have been specially formulated with key ingredient Capixyl™, which aids in hair regrowth and maintains a well-hydrated scalp. With Red Clover Extract, Capixyl can boost stronger, thicker and healthier tresses.
