Hair Style by Daniel Fortunato

Getting ready for your next stylish event/function? Let Hair Styling expert Daniel Fortunato share his top 3 thoughts and wisdom for these festive moments!

Tips for Curly Hair

Keeping your curls looking their bounciest this holiday season all starts in the shower. First you’ll want to brush your hair before washing. After shampooing your hair, work your conditioner through with a wide tooth comb, this will eliminate any tangles. Rinse and towel blot the hair (note: Any friction with the towel will lead to frizz). Apply a curl cream to the hair, twisting locks away from the face to define your curl. Let air dry for beautiful frizz free curls.

Tips for Limp Hair Needing Volume

Got fine, limp hair and want voluminous waves? Start off by shampooing your hair with a volumizing shampoo and just a little conditioner on the ends. Towel dry the hair to about 50% dry then apply a pea-sized amount of blow dry gel to the roots and a soft mousse through the ends. Flip upside down and blow until completely dry. Now, take large vertical sections, mist a light working spray over the section and wrap around a one inch curling iron away from the face. You’ll end up with six to ten sections depending on the thickness of your hair. Once done comb through with a wide tooth comb to blend curls and finish with one last burst of hairspray.

Quick Holiday Updo

Section the hair just below the top of the ear into two ponytails. Keep the two ponytails low and close together. First twist the bottom pony and start pinning into a figure eight formation.
Do the same top ponytail interlocking with the first pony for a chic low textured chignon.
