The radio stations are playing Christmas carols and hairdressers are squeezing in last-minute appointments to get their clients ready for holiday affairs.

Every year, the season kick’s off with Cosmetologist Chicago’s annual holiday event. Held on the first Monday of December, this show always features a guest artist and lots of great hair. This year was no exception.

CC hosted Fabrice Gili, Creative Director of Frederic Fekkai Salons and David Cotteblance, a Fekkai alumnus, to inspire CC members with amazing updos and modern cuts and styles. The event took place at Chicago’s Alhambra Palace, a cool venue with an Aladdin-style vibe.

Attendees were able to mingle with CC board members before hand and enjoy cocktails. As always, it was a festive, fun event—the perfect way to kick off the holidays.

Below are some of the cool creations from Gili and Cotteblance.
