After your fourth eggnog-and-champagne-fueled holiday bash of the season, you may feel like branching out from your usual hair and makeup routine. Celebrity stylist Robin Watson (and three beautiful viewers) are here to help with three different hairstyles and makeup trends that will have you feeling festive and flirty in no time. Which holiday style will you test drive?
Try: A fishtail braid - Celebrities like Nicole Scherzinger and Blake Lively know that a fishtail braid is an unexpected yet totally cute style. Pair the 'do with subtle kittenish eyes and a plum lip for a surprising yet subtle beauty look--especially for those with ivory skin tones.
Try: A darker hue - What better time than winter to warm up your look with a darker shade? Try Clairol's Nice N' Easy in a dark caramel color for an effortless change at salon quality. This coloring kit comes with a conditioning gloss to help seal in intense color and add shine. Style it sleek and straight with a spritz of shine serum to add sheen. We recommend trying out your new darker tone with some peacock-colored eyes--jewel tones look great on brunettes--just be sure to keep lips simple with a clear gloss.
Try: A top knot - This style has taken Hollywood by storm, and it's not going anywhere (yay!). A versatile 'do, this look can go casual to dressy, depending on how tight you make the knot. For a truly jolly look--try the knot with a bright, bold lip. If you're a blonde, an electric red with yellow undertones is all you need. A swipe of mascara et voilà! You're ready to party hop with the best of them.
