Looking to switch up your hair for the holidays?

Julien Farel’s Director of Style, Kevin Lee, shows a simple and unique style that you can wear at a cocktail event, casual party or even at home with family.  In only 5 steps, you will be holiday ready so you can hop from event to event with chic hair intact.

Here is what you need: Flexible Gel, Flexible Styling Balm, Hair dryer, Curling Wand, Medium Round Bristle Brush, bobby pins and an elastic.

1. Apply a quarter size amount of Julien Farel Flexible Gel from root to end. Rough dry hair and smooth out the front with Medium Round Bristle Brush.

2.  Add a drop of Julien Farel Flexible Styling Balm for a piecy texture that preps the hair for the curling wand. Curl big sections of the hair with wand.

3. Pull the hair from the ear back into a low side ponytail and secure with an elastic.  Piece by piece, pin back the hair from the front of the face.
