FHI Holiday Makeover


FHI Holiday Makeover

Les Haverty, Artistic Director for leading styling tool manufacturer FHI HEAT, says “it’s never more important to have power-hair than during the holidays.”

Supple, sensuous waves are Haverty’s pick for holiday ‘dos, achieved by using two or more curling irons with different barrel-widths. This variation allows for a more natural-looking, seemingly random placement of waves. “What you don’t want,” he says, “are tight, consistent, Shirley Temple sausage-rolls. You want sexy, slightly undone waves.”

This quick holiday hair Step-by-Step will definitely turn some heads for that last minute client looking to make a grand entrance at her company holiday party!

    Hair has more life and texture. It has that “lived in” stylish texture your client will just love.  Use finishing spray to hold.
