Get The Look: Styles for Special Occaisions
A hot date is the perfect opportunity to take your look up a notch. The sexiest, most feminine and flattering hairstyles of the season also happen to be perfect for date-night. These pretty hair looks work for every date scenario — from glamorous events to quiet dinners for two.
A smooth blowout with a soft bend and incredible shine is ultra-romantic. Mist styliste ULTIME Satin Frizz Control Heat Protection Spray on damp hair and use a large round brush to dry your hair, adding body all over with a slight curve at the ends (turn your face-framing layers away from your face and your ends under). When your hair is dry, finish with a few spritzes of styliste ULTIME Crystal Shine and Hold Laminating Shine Hair Spray from an arm's length away.
A ponytail is a fun and flirty style that is super easy to achieve start by creating. a deep side part. Lightly tease the section of hair between the temples to add a little height, then secure your hair into a tight ponytail just below the center of the head. Tilt your head back as you do it so that when you straighten it, you won't have loose hair underneath the ponytail. Wrap a one-inch section of hair around the base of the ponytail to disguise the hair elastic, then finish with Biotin Volume Hairspray.
A deep side part instantly ups your style quotient. Gathering your hair over the opposite shoulder gives the impression of hiding under the hair, which is ultra-flirty. The trick is getting it to stay that way for the entire night. To prevent an awkward mid-dinner flop, lightly apply Omega Repair 11in1 around your part when your hair is damp and blow-dry the spot. Insert a clip or a large bobby pin at the temples to help set the style. Place a tissue between the clip and your hair to prevent denting, and remove both before you leave for your date.
The ever-feminine low bun is great for special occasions where you need to be a little more dressed up. Start with side-parted hair. Gather it into a low ponytail, twist once, then wrap it into a loose bun. Pull out a few front pieces from the bun to finish the classic look.
If you’re looking for a chic style for limp hair, adding texture is the way to go. To get boho-cool-girl waves, twist random sections of hair around a one-inch curling iron from the mid-shaft down, then douse them with styliste ULTIME Biotin Volume Magic Volume Powder for a roughed-up finish. By keeping the roots and ends straight, the style stays effortless and laid back.
A ton of volume at the crown makes a half-up style so sexy and Parisian (channeling a very iconic French Bombshell from the past). Prep damp roots with essence ULTIME Biotin+ Volume and Vitality Root Lift Spray, and blast the roots at the crown with a blow dryer while lifting your hair with a big round brush. For extra va-voom, wrap the hair at the crown around large Velcro rollers to set the height. Tousle the rest of your hair while you blow-dry, take out the rollers, and curl the length around a one-inch iron. Secure the half that's up with pins crisscrossed into an X (it looks cute and gives you the most secure hold). If your hair is fine, lightly back-comb your roots for lasting volume and set your look with styliste ULTIME Biotin Volume and Vitality H20 Free Hairspray.
