Just weeks remain until the holiday season officially kicks off! Are you ready?

As you may recall, we recently collaborated with Redken Canada and Jorge Joao to create four glamorous, trendy and very cool looks that will inspire you to get creative with your hair this season.

Two of the looks were unveiled last week, and you can find them here. And here are the other two!

Look 3 – A Classic Hollywood Updo

Step 1. This look is very feminine and perfect for a formal night out, a date night or a family dinner. Start off by dividing your hair into two sections, from ear to ear. This will create a front section and a back section.

Step 2. Divide the front section too, and make sure you divide it where your hair part is. This will create a left and a right section.

Step 3. Use the back section to create a low ponytail.

Step 4. To ensure you have the perfect shape, place a foam form at the tip of the ponytail. Next, roll the hair up and pin to secure it at the base of the ponytail.

Step 5. Use pieces of the hair from side sections. Wrap, twist and pin them on top of your wrapped foam form.

Step 6. Continue to do this until you run out of hair on both sides. Spray with Redken’s Triple Take 32 for extra hold. You are all set!

Products to create this look: Redken’s Velvet Gelatine 07 and Triple take 32.

Look 4 – A Funky Updo with a Cool Twist

Step 1. This is a very fun look, inspired by many trends we have seen on the runway recently. You will need a lot of hairspray to keep it perfectly set for the evening. Start off by creating a horseshoe section on top of the head.

Step 2. Turn the hair in the horseshoe section into curls, using Redken’s Iron Shape 11 to set it.

Step 3. The remainder of the hair should be tied off into a loose ponytail, then wrapped into itself and pinned to give you the appearance of a French twist.

Step 4. Next, you will need to release the curls, “froth” them up using your fingers and spray with Redken’s Fashion Waves 07 for texture.

Step 5. Gather your curls and continue to pin to the head to give you a soft, textured silhouette. Continue to do this until you’ve reached your desired shape. Spray in Redken’s Fashion Works 12 for hold and humidity control. And — you are ready!

Products to create this look: Redken’s Iron Shape 11, Fashion Waves 07 and Fashion Work 12.
