This holiday’s trending looks are all about glitz, glam, up-dos, and curls, including the Holiday Half-Up Crown created by Keratin Complex artist, Haley M. Estep (@haleymestep), which combines all of these. This hairstyle is elegant enough to wear to a holiday party but casual enough to rock during the day as well. With a little bit of holiday spirit and award-winning Keratin Complex hair care products, this is the perfect look!     

How to achieve the Holiday Half-Up Crown

  1. Shampoo and condition hair with Keratin Complex Keratin Care Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner
  2. While the hair is damp, spray hair with Keratin Obsessed Multi-Benefit Treatment Spray, a lightweight all-in-one spray that is formulated with keratin and that delivers healthier hair with every spray. 
  3. Brush through and follow with Keratin Complex Styling Lotion throughout damp hair for lightweight styling control and protection.
  4. Blow dry using a round brush to accentuate volume and movement.
  5. Create waves throughout the hair. Starting on either side of the head, curl hair away from the face working to the middle of the back. Repeat on the opposite side.
  6. Lightly brush through the waves and spray the hair with Keratin Complex Texturizing Spray at the base of the hair to enhance volume and on the mid-shafts and ends to add definition and separation.
  7. Take a small section of hair from the front of both sides of the head and loosely twist each section to the center back of the head.
  8. Combine both twists with a band and softly pull edges of the twists to create a soft elegant crown.
  9. Use a stylish clip to anchor the twists to the style and to cover the exposed band.
  10. Spray finished style with Keratin Complex Firm Hold Hairspray for a strong brushable hold. 
  11. Add some holiday glitter or confetti for an effortless festive finish!
