The Holiday season is a time for spending quality time with friends, family, and of course, co-workers! It’s no secret that the

First the makeup…
Since Marta does not usually wear a lot of makeup, she has chosen a subdued bronze palette with a deep red lip. If you usually wear more makeup during the day, you can be more bold with your Holiday makeup, opting for a bright red lip or even glittery eyeshadow to play up the festivities.
Now on to the hair
As mentioned before, Marta wears a mixture of
Since Marta has short hair, she will be stacking her wefts together to thicken them up and ensure that the shorter pieces blend seamlessly with the longer pieces. If you have longer hair, you can skip this step, or double stack the wefts using two different colors to achieve that highlighted look we mentioned earlier.
In order to make sure that your Luxies blend seamlessly with any shorter pieces, we recommend curling your extensions with your hair as you go. Clip the wefts in, then curl your hair, combining shorter pieces with longer pieces so they blend together.
Marta’s hairstyle will need to last all night, so here’s a little trick to make your
Once you’ve clipped all your Luxies in, add a 1-clip weft at your temple. This will add a bit of hair to the braid we’re about to make for that extra thickness.
Take the front section of your hair on one side and begin to French braid it toward the back of your head. Once you reach your ear, take all the hair and 3-strand braid it until the bottom. Then, tuck the braid in under your hair at the nape of your neck and secure with bobby pins.
Take another section of hair on the other side of your face and 3-strand braid the hair. You can either French braid this section or not—it’s up to you! Once the braid is complete, tuck it under your hair and secure with bobby pins.
Now it’s time to get into your outfit for the night. Marta has chosen some statement earrings and a delicate necklace to keep all eyes on her hair, with a sparkly black dress to make her blonde hair pop.
And that’s it! Getting dressed for a Holiday party has never been easier, and if you follow Marta’s simple steps to create this glamorous half updo, your hair will be party ready in no time. Want more behind the scenes at Luxy Hair?
