The Best Styling Products for Holiday Hair '23

Unveil the secrets to a stunning holiday hairstyle with our guide to the top professional styling products designed to enhance, hold and add a touch of festive glow. From glamourous curls, to high ponytails, chic looks or sleek up-dos, these styling essentials are key to creating your best holiday hair for the season.

PRE-TREATMENT

It's all in the set up. The foundation to an unforgettable holiday look starts with a quick detox treatment to remove product buildup, clarify, revitalize, and prep the hair for styling. Reach for Wella Professionals Elements Renewing Shampoo, formulated without sulfates and silicones and made with up to 99% of natural origin ingredients. The Elements Renewing Shampoo nourishes and revives the natural smoothness and shine of the hair from root to tip. This shampoo also gently cleanses the hair with a luxurious foaming experience, without stripping hair moisture. Ultimately, it restores hair vitality and shine for a healthy look and feel.  HOW TO APPLY: Place a small amount onto damp hair, massage, and rinse thoroughly.
Short on time? Try Wella Professionals ColorMotion+ Pre-Color Treatment. You might be familiar with this product to prep the hair before color services, but did you know it can be used prior to styling services, as well? ColorMotion+ Pre-Color Treatment enhances the hair surface, balances porosity, smooths, hydrates and adds shine. These key components are essential to long-lasting curls and product performance throughout the styling process. HOW TO APPLY: Spray Wella Professionals ColorMotion+ Pre-Color Treatment on unwashed, dry hair, concentrating on porous ends. Dry hair lightly with a hair dryer. Proceed with styling.

ROOT BOOST

Working at the very foundation of the hair, volumizers and root boosters elevate the hair to a whole new level of glam. Literally. Check out these must-have recommendations to achieve the perfect volume, movement and texture in all your holiday styles.
After shampooing, apply Wella Professionals INVIGO Volume Boost Bodifying Foam to damp hair. Distribute evenly, and comb through. Do not rinse. Blow-dry for maximum effect. With Volume Boost-Blend™, the lightweight formula delivers manageability and shine without weighing down the hair. (Even fine hair!) The Bodifying Spring Force Polymers surround the hair fibers, stabilize, and work to create a soft, voluminous result.
Another product we love for maximum volume is Wella Professionals EIMI Extra Volume Hair Mousse. Create perfect body and provide a strong hold to the hairstyle for a look that will last. This volumizing mousse formula helps protect hair against dehydration during blow drying and gives voluminous support for any holiday style.

HEAT PROTECTION

Shield the hair during heat styling with Wella Professionals EIMI Thermal Image Heat Protection Spray. This professional hair spray is a two-phase formula, designed to protect the hair, while adding smoothness and natural hold. Phase 1: of EIMI spray nourishes the hair and provides heat protection of up to 220°C. Phase 2: leaves hair smooth for a flawless and shiny result.
Provide protection and add sparkling shine to hair with Sebastian Professional Trilliant Spray. Formulated with rock crystal extract, this lightweight hairspray gently conditions hair, protects the strands from heat, while leaving a little extra shimmer behind. An essential tool to bouncy curls and healthy hair.

DRY SHAMPOO

Can we agree... not all dry shampoos are created equal. We found TWO options to deliver the right amount of texture, reduce oil and leave a clear, YES! C-L-E-A-R finish, perfect for any hair type. We recommend: Wella Professionals EIMI Dry Me, Dry Shampoo or Sebastian Professional Dry Clean Only. Achieve volumized and manageable hair texture, absorb unwanted oil and leave the hair instantly refreshed. The ultimate hair hack to achieving the right amount of texture, manageability and hold within your holiday styles.

HAIRSPRAY

Finish your holiday look with a variety of hairsprays to secure the style, while leaving the hair soft and touchable. One of our favorites is Sebastian Professional Texture Maker. This professional hairspray has a remarkably light formula, that allows the hair to expand to provide a versatile and reworkable texture. Enriched with sea salt crystals, Sebastian Texture Maker delivers a medium hold and a matte finish, enabling the creation of any shape.
Looking for another great choice? Try Sebastian Professional Shaper Hairspray. Numbers don't lie... it's a top seller for a reason and a heritage product that has delivered beautiful results for decades. This flash-dry, brushable hairspray has a lightweight flexible control that defies gravity. The finish of Sebastian Shaper is so light that you'll hardly know it's even there. Create a touchable, moveable style with flexible control and a beautiful satin finish.

SHINE

The finishing touch to any holiday hairstyle is SHINE and we can't get enough of these two products that deliver the perfect sheen. Try Wella Professionals EIMI Glam Mist Shine Spray, and finish your glamorous style with dazzling shine. Formulated to protect the hair from humidity and UV. Or add, Sebastian Professional Dark Oil Silkening Mist to your styling kit. A lightweight fragrant mist, infused with a special blend of oils, including jojoba and argan oil, for added shine and a silky feel. The ideal choice before a blow-dry or for a finishing mist to complete the look.
