Pull hair into a low ponytail just above the nape.
Using a few pumps of Split End Serum, rub between hands and into the ponytail, and create a sleek and simple braid.
Lift the braid vertically and secure with U-pins. (See Adir’s texture-grabbing technique for getting pins to stay put.)
Add a festive accessory to finish.
Twist your sleek and simple braid around the base of the hair band to create a refined bun.
Secure with U-pins and add a festive flourish on the side to finish.
Pull your sleek and simple braid horizontally and pin the middle just right of center with a U-pin.
Cover the hair band with the remaining braid and secure on the other side to show off your gorgeous plait.
Use Shaping Spray to set the look, pulling out wispy bits where necessary.
Add festive pins to finish.
