When it comes to hair, makeup, and fashion, few times during the year are as festive and fun than holiday party season. It’s a time when breaking out your most festive looks is called for. And with a quick trip to the Health and Style Institute, you can be glamorous and looking for a chance to show off your shine.

Lovely Locks

Ask your stylist to try something with a significant part to one side.  This makes almost all your hair go in one direction, giving you shocking volume.  With this as a base, you have complete freedom for how to style the rest of your hair.  Whether you love curly, sleek, or tight up-dos, a deep part will add an interesting element to your look.

Another great effect of these parts is they sweep your hair to one side.  This is perfect for showing off some holiday fashions – whether it’s the fantastic neckline on your dress, your beautiful necklace, or a gorgeous collarbone, you’ll display exactly what you want to with this style.

Jewels

Consider decorating your style with some eye-catching accessories.  Using jeweled or metallic hair clips will keep your hair in place, while showing your festive spirit.  Even the simplest hairstyles can get a touch of glamour by adding a little bling.

Waxing is a procedure that, when done correctly, can leave your face smooth and free of hair for weeks. However, while waxing is convenient and effective, it can also leave you open to infection on the delicate skin of your face. Take precautions by using a professional to wax your face rather than going the DIY route. Then post-wax, adhere to any guidelines given about facial products and makeup. With the right care, you’ll easily see the benefits of waxing your facial hair compared to other methods.

No Stubble
When you shave your face – it might surprise how many women DO! — the facial hair is cut off at the surface of the skin, leaving it blunt-edged. When it begins to grow back, it grows in the form of stubble. While a five o’clock shadow is fine for most men, it is unsightly on a woman. Waxing removes the entire hair shaft, meaning it grows back naturally and without the stubbly look that shaving can cause.

Longer Results
As the entire hair is removed from your face, you are guaranteed much longer-lasting smooth skin. The root of the hair is removed completely, meaning that it needs to reform from the root before appearing on your face again. Most wax jobs, depending on how fast your hair grows, can last up to two weeks. Shaving your face or using a depilatory only lasts up to five days.

Precision
With waxing your face, your salon technician has complete control over which parts of your face are waxed and which stay untouched. For instance, if your salon technician is working around your eyebrow, you can be sure that only the area that has wax on it will be removed, leaving you with perfectly shaped brows. Waxing gives you greater precision over shaving, since the hair is only removed when it has wax on it. This is ideal for the small places on your face that need waxing and shaping.
Less Hair
The more you wax, the less hair you’ll grow. Waxing ultimately damages the hair follicle. After having it done repeatedly on your face, the follicle will stop producing hair and you’ll become hair free. Of course, the reduction and essential cease of hair growth can take years to occur, but unlike shaving, you’ll start to see less hair each time you wax.
