’Tis the season for glitz and glam. Show up to every party looking your very best with simple styling ideas, hair tools and a wide range of products and accessories from Hy-Vee.
The holidays are a special occasion, and part of the celebration is getting to dress up and try out a new look. Hy-Vee has everything to help hair look just as festive as the event:
• bobby pins
• curling irons and wands
• hair dryers
• heat protectants
• styling cream
Trying a new hair style can be intimidating— especially when heading to a big event.
Follow these tips to simplify styling time.
Soft, clean hair doesn’t hold curls or styles as well, so avoid washing hair the day of styling if possible.
Practice any new style so you can nail it the day of the holiday party.
To keep from being rushed, keep track of how long the style takes while practicing.
