close formula

It’s never too early to prepare for one of the busiest seasons in the salon, so Joico Guest Artistic Director Vivienne Mackinder took over our Facebook Live to demonstrate not one, but four holiday-ready hair how-tos. Watch the video below to see all four looks!



The Looks
1. High-Volume Half-Up—a super textured ‘do that is perfect for more casual festivites

2. Romantic, Twisted Updo—a quick style that is both elegant and soft

3. Old Hollywood Glamour—a deceivingly intricate updo with a touch of glamour

4. Modern, Big Volume Bouffant—a classic style for clients who want the ultimate updo


Watch the Facebook Live at the bottom of the article for Vivienne’s techniques and to pick up tips like this:

  • Vivienne says the key to her styles are making them balanced and proportionate. She does this by studying the face shape and then aiming for an oval and straight profile plane. Check out the diagram she shared:


  • Struggling to keep your deconstructed looks from falling out? Vivienne says the way you pin is a game-changer.  Japanese pins are her go-to because they have a better grip.
  • Vivienne has five backcombing methods that she uses to create the foundation of the bouffant—stack and pack, cotton candy, meshing, french lace and classic backcombing. Skip to 34:40 to see what each technique does!
