Enter the holiday season with a bang(s). Bangs are one of our favorite hair trends this year and are perfect for winter months! Try bangs out for a cozy, effortless look that instantly elevates any hairstyle. 


Embrace Natural Texture

If you have naturally curly or wavy hair, amplify your natural texture this holiday season by defining your hair with a mousse or gel when styling, such as Solutions Curl Whipped Mousse. For best results when styling your natural hair, you’ll want to ensure your hair is well moisturized to combat dry hair during colder months.
