Who said holiday hair required hours of effort? Virtue® ambassador Rena Calhoun shows us her quick and easy approach to achieving a volumized half updo with a festive twist.

Rena's Tips & Tricks

Start by putting a soft bend in the hair with a flat iron. On each section, go over and under in opposite directions until you’ve achieved a gentle wave all over.

Next, use Lifting Powder on the roots and backcomb at the crown for more volume. This helps build the shape.

Pull the top half of hair back and secure with a small elastic.

Spray Texturizing Spray through the bottom half of hair for volume and instant texture.

For an extra festive twist, tie a holiday-inspired ribbon around the elastic.
