The holidays aren't just coming... they're HERE!

In this quick how-to, Joico’s "Glam Hair Expert" Katie Bilovol, and TV fashion pro Sydne Summer, demonstrate how to create a beautiful and easy holiday look that that can be completed in four simple steps.

Prep: To set a foundation, apply Power Whip to wet hair and blow dry. Create loose waves wrapped around a one-inch curling iron.

Step 1. Work in Instant Refresh to absorb extra oil and leave hair shiny. Make a center part and take soft sections backcombing at the crown hair so it has volume.

Step 2. Separate the sides from the top of the head, parting right behind the ear on both sides.

Step 3. Pick up the entire side part and create a very loose braid, braiding towards the back. Repeat on the opposite side. Loop ends of braids into the elastic.

Step 4. Take one braid and wrap it very low to the head, creating a crown effect on the back. Take bobby pins and criss-cross to secure the end of the braid to the opposite side of the hair. Repeat with the opposite braid. Mist hair with Power Spray to tame flyaways and keep humidity at bay.
