hair how to: too mod

This updo is one part Bardot, two parts Twiggy for this 2011 take on the bouffant-twist.

1. Divide the hair into two sections, parting it across the back of the head.

Winter Wonderful

We’re already imagining this style on your heads for new years eve, a special occasion or brides (and ourselves).
1. On damp hair, spray Bb. Thickening Hairspray to the root area and ends of hair.
2. Turn head upside down to achieve maximum volume and dry the hair with a blow-dryer, continuously running your fingers through the hair while it is drying.
3. Once the hair is dry, use your fingers to create a very natural part and make sure to keep it soft in appearance.
4. On one side, take a 3-inch section of hair with your fingers and start to turn the section away from the face until it shrinks or twists down towards the scalp. When 50 percent of the hair has been wound down towards the head, add another 3-inch section to what you’re already holding and repeat. Do this until you reach the center of the back of the head, and secure with a few bobby pins. (The volume at the back appears naturally while gathering and twisting sections of the hair.)
5. Repeat this on the other side. Leave any pieces that accidentally fall out as this creates the softness that finishes this fun look so well.
6. Finish with Spray de Mode hairspray for a gentle but effective hold. Pin It

hair how to: elfin

One of our favorites! (this is from BHLDN as well). Perfect for the bride picturing an outdoor, candlelit ceremony, inspired by medieval hairstyles. This look has an earthy feel to it, especially when you add the feathered hair piece, but it forms this beautiful halo around the head, which adds drama.

1. On dry hair create a side part and began braiding around the face, starting with hair closest to the hairline and adding to the braid with hair further back on the head. Continue this until finally coming full circle.

2. Secure the tail of the braid into its beginning with a bobby pin.

3. Begin pulling at the braid gently with you fingers, concentrating at the nape of the neck to anchor the style.

4. Finish with Spray de Mode hairspray and add a feather or hair pin for added drama.

hair how to: the pin-up

Another beautiful style from BHLDN. This was inspired by Rita Hayworth, keeping the hair full and loose, pulling it back just enough to let the Peony Hairpin share the spotlight.

1. To start this simple yet head-turning style, comb Styling Creme through wet hair.

2. Get hair completely dry, and then set the entire head with a 1-inch barrel curling iron.

3. Let the hair cool. Let the hair down and comb through. Start at it with your hands to get right amount of volume and shape.

4. Spray hair with Spray de Mode and pin in a flower for the final touch.

hair how to: bouffant

Voluminous hair was all over the runway this season, 60's retro is definitely back in full force! We love the elegance, sexiness and whimsy of the bouffant that Bottega Veneta sent down the runway. Want to add some texturized glamour to your own fall repertoire? Follow these steps:
1. It's best to start this look on unwashed hair, if you are add some Bb. Hair Powder for to get rid of shine and add texture. If your hair is wet spray hair with Prep and then smooth Bb. Texture through your roots and ends. Blow dry hair completely dry and round brush for volume.
2. Split your hair into two sections using your fingers. The top section will begin behind your ear and move up to the crown. The bottom section will be the remaining hair.
3. Secure the top section off to the side with a clip, brush the bottom section up into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic.
4.. Take the top section and secure the front two inches of hair off to the side. With the remaining strands, tease your hair. Spray with Spray de Mode for lasting hold.
5. Take the separated top section and brush it neatly over the teased portion and towards your ponytail, making sure to smooth out the front and sides as you go.
6. Secure the top section into your ponytail with a generous spray of Spray de Mode. Roll your ponytail and top section under towards your scalp and secure hair up with pins.
7. Smooth your updo with Styling Wax and finish with a little more Spray de Mode! Pin It

Holiday Pin Tin

50 winter white styling pins (with stylist know-how to match) neatly packed in Bb. engraved tin. Limited-edition and perfect for gifting. Often compared to needles and thread by hairdressers, pins are essential style underpinnings, having played infinite - and invisible - supporting roles. That is, until the late 1990s when two Bb.Editorial Stylists "outed" the pin, sending hair down runways bedecked with visible pins, to elegant and dramatic effect. We offer this Bb. Pin tin as an homage to their ground-breaking ingenuity, and hope it inspires you.

hair how to: romantic twist updo

For the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing some of our favorite holiday styles and how-tos to help you get ready for the holidays. Also keep in mind we have a few Updo Specialists in the salon that would love to help you through all your holiday events! First up is how to recreate Lauren Conrad’s Romantic Twist updo.
1. On damp hair spray Prep all over hair. Smooth Grooming creme through your the middle and ends of your hair for shine and smoothing (this updo would also be awesome to do on second-day hair). Spray Thickening hairspray on roots and ends of hair.
2. Get hair completely dry with a blow drier.
3. Use a 1” curling iron to curl the hair. Spray with Spray de mode while curling.
4. Once the entire head is curled, secure the curls by pinning them in a woven fashion to create a style that looks loose and effortless. Once the style is achieved, lightly spray Spray de Mode for lightweight and soft, yet controlled, hold. Pin It

hair how to: high ponytail

We love this high ponytail on Nicole Richie. It's super chic and great when you're in a rush! Here's how you can get this look at home:
1. On dry hair pull a mohawk section of your hair and leave out. Pull the rest of your hair into a super high pony on your crown with a bungee or elastic.
2. Take the mohawk section of the hair you left out and lightly shake to let a face-framing fringe (bangs) fall.
3. Separate the remaining hair into 2 sections on both sides of the head. One at a time, wrap the sections around the pony. Pin and secure with pins to hide the elastic.
4. Smooth flyaways and set the ponytail with a light mist of Spray de Mode hairspray. Add some red carpet worthy shine with Shine Spray. Pin It
