    Vintage Coif/Formal Updo’s ~ the formal updo is hottest hairstyle worn this year on red carpets. Inspired by the 40s hairstyles and 50s hairstyles look, this hairstyle can be worn with short, medium or long hair. After setting the hair on small or medium sized rollers, hair can be molded into a soft wave pattern or pinned into a french braid or chignon formal hairdo. Be sure not to over saturate the hair with hairspray, so it stays soft and easy to manage.

    Coordination ~ One of the biggest mistakes we make during the holidays are over coordinating our image. A fabulous formal hairdo combined with a sexy dress, bright make-up, and over the top accessories, can make for an overdone mess. Be sure your entire look is coordinated and everything complements each other. If you decide to wear a classic cocktail dress and add a bold vintage accessory, don’t over due it on the formal hairdo or make-up. Instead, try opting for a formal updo. Remember you don’t want to be in competition with the holiday décor, so keep it simplistic and sheek.

    Preservation ~ Lastly, to ensure your formal hairdo lasts for your entire event, keep your hair pinned or wrapped while you enjoy cooking, decorating, and wrapping gifts.

    3. Saleemah Staten,

      Could you please tell us who the celebrity is in the photo? and if you know, what event it was or time frame. I’m in a themed wedding in a few weeks and I want to get my hair done like this, but I don’t think this is enough of a picture for my hairdresser.

    9. After shampooing and conditioning hair, squeeze out any excess moisture. Then apply a small amount of John Frieda’s Frizz Ease Hair Serum throughout wet hair prior to drying and/or styling.
