I had so much fun watching the Kérastase Diary contest…now that its over I wanted to show a few of the new styles I tried for mine ;) I got so inspired looking at everyone else's entries!
SOFT AND ROMANTIC CURLS
I started with the Kérastase Cristalliste Bain and Lait Cristal, allowed my hair to air-dry, and finished with the Lumiére Liquide (for the extra shine). I love the new Cristalliste formula, as it doesn't weigh down my hair. I used a Sultra Bombshell one inch clipless curling iron, wrapping small sections of hair OVER (rather than UNDER) the curling iron for more of a forties wave, brushed through with a soft bristle brush, and pinned one side away from my face.
This was a no-brainer. After I did the romantic curls hairstyle, I raked the front part of my hair back with fingers and clipped it with a BIG chiffon bow. I pulled out my bangs and played with them a little bit to make it a little more grown up, and added more of Kérastase's Lumiére Liquide for that extra shine.
SOCK BUN A fashion favorite at the moment ;) Probably because it's cute and EASY! I'm going to give you a basic run-down of it and link you to a Youtube video. Brush your hair into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic. Cut the toe off of a sock and roll it into a doughnut. Or, you could buy a 'hair doughnut' at Sally's Beauty Supply. Pull your ponytail through the sock doughnut, and then start wrapping your ponytail ends under the sock doughnut. Repeat until you've reached the base of your ponytail, and secure with bobby pins!
Here is a video that shows you how!
Now…to announce the winners! Thank you so much for everyone who took the time to enter, I loved seeing what everyone did! Congratulations to the gorgeous ladies below, you will all be treated to the full Cristalliste Collection and a Kérastase in-salon visit!
