TIE ONE ON

Hol­i­day-hair pick: the crown braid. Step 1. Spritz tex­tur­iz­ing spray on damp hair and rough-dry. We love Redken Braid Aid 03 ($25) for vol­ume and hold. Step 2. Start­ing at the side of your head, just be­low the ear, take a sec­tion of hair and di­vide it into three. Tilt your head to the side and braid the hair, pick­ing up more strands as you go, over the crown un­til you reach the bot­tom of your other ear. Do a sim­ple three-strand braid to the end and se­cure with a clear elas­tic. Step 3. Us­ing bobby pins, pin the tail of the braid un­der the ear where it started. Celebrity hair­styl­ist Roger Medina sug­gests criss-cross­ing the pins, with one fac­ing up and one fac­ing down, for max­i­mum hold. Step 4. Take the edges of the braid and pull loosely­; called “pan­cak­ing,” this makes hair look thicker. Step 5. Set with hair­spray, such as Balmain Hair Cou­ture Ses­sion Spray Medium ($31.25). Step 6. Find mistle­toe ASAP.

“IN THE WIN­TER, THE LIGHT OUT­SIDE IS DIF­FER­ENT; IT’S MORE COOL TONED, MORE BLUE. [ OPT FOR HIGH­LIGHTERS] WITH CHAM­PAGNE, BEIGE AND GOLD TONES TO GIVE YOUR SKIN A NICE, SOFT, WARM GLOW.”

– Maxime Poulin, in­ter­na­tional beauty artist (mem­ber of the Guerlain art team), on the art of high­light­ing in win­ter when the sun is weaker
