The holiday season is here and it’s time to celebrate with friends, family, and colleagues. Perhaps you have a holiday soiree, a dinner gala, or just drinks right after work. Maybe you’ll be whipping up a festive dinner for your ugly sweater party. Whatever it is, it’s helpful to have a versatile hairstyle that can take you from day to night with a few simple steps.

Starting with a great foundation will help in the process. Begin with freshly washed hair using Creme of Nature Pure Honey Moisturizing Dry Defense Shampoo and Conditioner.

Follow it up with Pure Honey Moisture Replenish & Strength Hair Mask for added moisture, prevent breakage, and tame and control frizz so that your curls pop. Let sit for up to 15 minutes and rinse with warm water.

Now, it’s time to set those curls. Make a cocktail using Creme of Nature Pure Honey Curl Texturizing Setting Lotion with the Pure Honey Moisture Whip Twisting Cream.

Now, section hair in the desired size for twists and apply the cocktail along the hair shaft — from roots to the end — in each section before two-strand twisting.

Pro Tip: Twist hair in small to medium twist for varied textures.

Once all hair is twisted, let air dry overnight. To speed up the drying process, sit under a hooded dryer with medium heat for an hour.

For a perfect twist-out, hair MUST be completely dry. Not sure? Test a section in the back. Once dray, unravel and separate twists with your fingers and style accordingly.

To add lift and height use a hair pick to lift from the root only as to not disturb your curls. Adorn with stylish hairpins to create your frohawk or updo.
