Top 5 Special Event Styling Tips

Here are some styling tips to help you create looks that are perfect for everything from big, formal events to a throw-on-a-sweater-and-go girls' night out. And remember, if you're looking to make an even bigger special-occasion impression, your Cost Cutters stylist is always there to help with a new cut, color, and more.

1. Easy Volume

Pump up your look with dry shampoo, like Blossom Peppermint and Tea Tree Dry Shampoo and Texturizing Powder. It removes excessive oil on the scalp prior to styling and will add fullness to your hair.

 

2. When in doubt: accessorize

Bring a touch of elegance to a simple style with hair accessories such as an embellished headband, a jeweled pony holder or decorated hairpins.

 

3. Elevate your pony

Add sophistication and sparkle to your quick ponytail. Apply water to a comb and smooth through hair and onto ponytail. Then follow through with a finishing hairspray (we love Kenra Platinum Finishing Spray) to help smooth and shine your look.

 

4. Flatten flyaways

Don't make taming flyaways a bigger deal than it has to be. Spray the backside of a comb with a medium-hold hairspray like Kenra Perfect Medium Spray and comb the offending tresses flat.

 

5. Curl endurance

Want bouncy curls that last the night? Use a thermal protectant (we love Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer) and ribbon sections of hair through your flat iron. Clip each curl while it sets and cools. Then finish it off with a firm-hold hairspray like Paul Mitchell Stay Strong .
