Apply REJUVENIQE™ to prep hair for an updo. Use a nylon and boar bristle brush to smooth strands. Smooth the sides with ReStyle Instant Sculpting Taffy then spritz on Refinish Control Hairspray. Lastly, take a small section of hair from underneath it and wrap it around the bungee to conceal its appearance for a chic, pulled-together look.

FEEL LIKE NEW WITH A NEW HAIR DO


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.


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!


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!


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.


So if you’re looking to feel like new this New Year, why not go for a different hairdo?

Wave That Ponytail Hello
Who says all ponytails are created equal? It’s time to shake things up, whether you have straight of curly hair.
