Get Red Carpet Ready for New Years

Tim Rogers’ Tips To Achieve Dazzling, On-Trend Holiday Coifs

Top NYC stylist & Editorial Spokesperson for Charles Worthington London, Tim Rogers, “ups” the glam factor this coming season with essential how to’s for achieving runway worthy styles just in the time for the holidays. Just a few twists and a dollop of professionally formulated products will have your in party perfect hair…

Scruffy, bouffant up-dos.
Rock and Roll meets Victorian punk. Vamp it up this holiday season… and combine the best of both tradition and trend.

Set clean hair on large electric or small velcro rollers. Use Charles Worthington London BIG HAIR Texturizing Salt Spray on the root of each sectioned roller setting to create texture and substance at the roots. Back brush the roots throughout the head using and ultrafine aerosol hair spray (try Charles Worthington London BIG HAIR Ultrafine Hairspray) on each brushing. The goal is to create a wispy, whimsical texture.

Divide the hair in half, splitting at the crown between hair behind the ear and hair in front. Create a French twist using the back section. Integrate the front section using pins to create a fun, high party shape.
Slicked high bow pony.
Ideal for going straight from the office to the holiday shindig, this sleek look is classic, polished sophistication with a “twist”.

Prep hair using Charles Worthington London BIG HAIR Texturizing Salt Spray on damp, damp hair. Make pony by following the line of your jaw using a hand mirror.

Twist the pony over to create a 'bow' effect. Good for longer layered hair, or one length hair.

Shiny braids.
A modern take on the archetypal braid… that can be worn down or twisted into 'figure-8' over scaled chignon for and updated, slick style.
Start with damp hair. Add a texturizing balm mixed with a gel for shine and control, I like Charles Worthington London Moisture Seal Leave-in Conditioner or BIG HAIR Amazing Finishing Balm.

If your hair is shorter than your collar bone, consider a ponytail 'switch' extension. Make a pony, add the extension that has been color matched in daylight, dampened with water and with balm/gel mix added. Pin the extension into the ponytail band holding your own hair in place using large bobby pins. Divide the combined hair into three sections and braid conventionally.

If you choose to wear the pony down and slick, considering adding a hairline gripping bandeau OR make figure-8 chignon by twisting the hair into shape and securing with long hair pins for an update on the popular chignon.
