Kerastase Paris - Jason Wu SS 2016

The holidays are a time to take your hair and makeup to next-level status. A little sparkle, a red lip, an elegant updo. With some easy tips from Kerastase, you can recreate the chic braided chignon from the Jason Wu show at Fashion Week. It perfectly transitions to a holiday updo…the gold standard of party hair!

What if I told you that this look only takes two hair products?

Kerstase Updo Essentials


To create this updo, apply Kerastase Forme Fatale (a blow-dry gel that gives extra body, as well as shape and structure) to blow-dried hair. Construct the braid as shown in the diagram. Then, finish up with Laque Noire, which is my gold-standard hairspray. I love it because it holds hair in place, adds shine and never builds up. As an option, tuck a Carre Lissant smoothing sheet into your handbag for the errant flyaway.

What’s your go-to holiday hair style?
