Dove Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend’s Holiday Hair Tips & Tricks



Tip 1: Braids are all the rage these days, so try a festive fishtail for this year’s family holiday party! Keep it simple and sophisticated, or pull some pieces out around your face and loosen the braid for a more laid back look.
  • Part dry hair to one side and gather in front of the shoulder; create two even sections.
  • Begin the braid by taking a small piece of hair from the outside of the first section, crossing it over and adding to the inside of the opposite section.
  • Continue until the braid is complete and secure with an elastic.


*Bonus Tip! For next-day texture, remove the braid and shake hair out. Apply Dove Invigorating Dry Shampoo to roots and lengths to absorb oil and refresh and revive hair



Tip 2: A textured bun is a great alternative to the side chignon, and an elegant yet fun look for your holiday office party. Take the look from the office to the after party by adding a touch of sparkle with a beautiful holiday hairpin!

  • Take small sections of dry hair, beginning at the hairline, and twist upward – continue picking up hair as you go until you reach the back of the head.
  • Secure each twist with a bobby pin and repeat 4-5 times.
  • Gather the remaining hair and blend it with the twists, twisting all of the hair into a loose bun – secure with additional pins as needed.
  • Finish with Dove Style + Care Strength & Shine Flexible Hold Hairspray to keep the style in place all day!




Tip 3: All it takes is one good hair day (or night) to send your confidence through the roof, so start the New Year off right with a timeless style and own the night with a shiny, voluminous blowout!





Tip 4: If soiree season has you strapped for time, opt for a trendy top knot for a sleek and sophisticated look!




*Bonus Tip! Spray hairspray on a reusable mascara wand and use it to smooth down any flyaway hairs, especially around the ears and at the nape of the neck.
