Holiday Hair: Top 3 Holiday Easy to Style Hair Styles

Posted:
Easy To Style Holiday Hair Styles


1) The Side Part & Tuck.
This is a super easy go-to formal-ish hair style. First part your hair on your preferred side and tuck the parted side behind your ear. This holiday hair style looks beautiful either curled or waved with a wand. Also, pretty holiday earrings compliment this hair style perfectly.


 
2. The Half Ponytail.
Yes, ladies, the 90's is back. Not only are the choker necklaces, but these half high pony tails are in and perfect for a holiday hair style. We think they look best with your hair styled straight. Another option is to hide the ponytail by wrapping a little part of the ponytail AROUND the hair tie to cover it. Then secure with a bobby pin. Voila.


 
3. Center Part, Sexy & Tossled waves.
This is super easy and simple. Part your hair in the center and make sure when you curl or use your wand, keep the iron VERTICAL and curl OFF your face. This way all of your waves are going off your face. This is a simple hair style, but dressy enough for your holiday party.

Hair Supplements:
Do They Actually Work?
Want Stronger, Shinier, Healthier Hair?
Would You Like Your Hair To Grow FASTER!?








Yes, THEY DO! Yes, they will make your hair grow faster and healthier! Vitamins & Minerals are essential to keeping your hair healthy. Are you experiencing hair loss? Weak hair? Supplement with vitamins!

 
Biotin
The lack of biotin in the body causes hair loss, hair breakage, brittle & weakness in nails, and dry, cracked skin. So it makes sense if we give your body MORE of this, then you would get healthier, stronger, faster GROWING hair!
 

The best way to get biotin is naturally from our diet. But, it never hurts to supplement with a biotin vitamin. It is recommended not only to take a biotin vitamin, but to take a "HAIR, SKIN, & NAILS" vitamin. That way you get all of the essential vitamins & minerals that promote healthy, strong, and fast growing hair!

 
Foods that are HIGH in Biotin
Swiss chard, cauliflower, avocados, carrots, whole wheat bread, egg yolks, milk (cow & goat), cheese, most nuts (peanuts, almonds, walnuts), berries (rasberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries), fish (salmon & halibut)


The essential vitamins that help our hair grow faster and healthier are omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B & C, iron, folate, zinc, beta carotene (Vitamin A), protein, & selenium.


 
Foods that are rich in these vitamins are:
Salmon, walnuts, oysters, sweet potatoes, eggs, spinach, lentils, blueberries,  & greek yogurt.

What Hair Color is Most Flattering for Your Eye Color & Skin Tone.

How HAIR COLOR can make your EYE COLOR POP!


GET THE PERFECT TRIO. Match your Hair Color, Eye Color, & Skin Color.

 

GET HAIR COLOR THAT IS FLATTERING.
The most flattering hair color comes when you have "THE PERFECT TRIO". A perfect trio is when your hair color matches your skin tone and eye color. Your perfect hair color will make your eyes POP. Your eyes will appear brighter and bigger. It will also go well with your skin tone. The right hair color will give your skin color, vibrance, and softness. The wrong hair color will do the exact opposite, it will wash you out, make you look drab and dreary.

 

During your consultation at SALON ENVY CHICAGO, we will analyze your eye color & skin tone to determine the most flattering hair color for you.


In case you want to research some pictures before your appointment.. Here are some easy tips for figuring out what hair color scheme is good for you! 


 

Our EYES have two colors. A primary color and a secondary color. The primary eye color is what you see the most of and most likely will be on your identification. Brown, blue, green, & hazel are the most common primary eye colors. The secondary eye color is what may be a ring around your primary eye color between your pupil, it may be tiny specks around the center pupil, too. This color is what we match your hair color to. Golden, copper, platinum,  hazel, or brown colors are most common for secondary tones.
 

 

 

THE THREE CATEGORIES THAT MAKE UP EYE COLOR & SKIN TONE ARE:

WARM, COOL, & NEUTRAL.


WARM- Warm skin tones have a golden, soft honey skin color. Their natural virgin hair colors will have warm hints of tones such as orange, copper, golden, or red. Warm skin tones typically have eye colors that are brown, hazel, golden light brown, or green.

COOL- Cool skin tones are the most common of all skin tones and have a slight red hue. Their natural virgin hair color will have cool hints of tones such as ash, dirty dishwater blonde, black, cool brown, or silver (grey). Cool skin tones typically have eye colors that are blue-green, light blue, dark blue, or brown-black.

NEUTRAL-Neutral skin tones are as easy as this= they are neutral. Neutral skin tones typically have hair and eye colors that have a mix of warm and cool tones. Typical eye colors are mixed, such as blue-green eyes with hints of copper, or eyes that can go from a warm-green to a cool blue, depending on what clothing or hair color they have. This is the easiest skin tone to work with because the possibilities are endless.

You want your hair color to compliment both eye color and skin tone. Here I will list a few common eye colors and hair color pictures to go with them.
