Get Tressed Up With An Unexpected Bit Of Bling



The Tip: You don’t need to splurge on pricy hair accessories; dress up your ‘do using a favorite belt or necklace. Part your hair in the center, then divide it into sections in front of the ears and behind. Backcomb the crown of the hair, then wrap the front sections of hair around a curling iron. Wrap a belt around your head, between the two sections of hair, then clip the ends together at the nape of the head. Brush the ends of your hair together to combine the front and back sections, then finish with hairspray.

The Tools: Thin belt or necklace, Kérastase Double Force Buildable Hold Hairspray, curling iron.

The Trick: To get beachy waves, place the curling iron close to your roots and only wrap hair around it once or twice, leaving ends natural.
