This season, elevate your New Year’s Eve look with an ultra-glamorous hairstyle. Then top it off with a trendy hair accessory, from velvet bows to decorative barrettes. These accessorized hairdos will be sure to make a festive entrance into the coming year. 

Founder and hair veteran Frédéric Fekkai shares his insider tips on creating classic looks with a holiday flair. How can you get these looks? Why not rely on some of the most coveted stylers from FEKKAI.


“With the sixties-inspired styles still relevant today, we’ll be seeing beautiful bouffants making their way into holiday soirees. This look is all about keeping your hair’s natural texture and adding volume, says Fédéric.

“On damp hair, spray Clean Stylers Root Lift Volumizing Spray at the roots and rub it into the scalp before blow drying. Using a root lift spray will add that lift and extra body you want to this look. After hair is dry, divide hair in half and spray the Full Blown Volume Dry Texturizing Spray throughout to give your hair fluffiness, movement, and texture.

Then with a teasing brush, backcomb the top section of hair and lightly use Clean Stylers Volume Lock Hairspray after you tease to lock in the volume. Once hair is fully teased, use a boar bristle brush and lightly brush the hair backward to smooth out the top layer. Gather the top portion of your hair to create the bouffant, secure with pins. For a more tousled look, leave some strands out to frame the face, and add a velvet hair bow or headband for the finishing touch!

This sleek, simple style is incredibly elegant. I love this smooth updo because it can be dressed down and still look glam,” enthuses Frédéric. “The key elements to this look are shine and smoothness. Add a few drops of the FEKKAI Brilliant Gloss Glass Hair Anti-Frizz Oil Serum to really smooth down those flyaways, add extra shine and protect the hair from artificial heat up to 450º.

Generously add the FEKKAI Full Blown Volume Texturizing Spray to your pony to build volume and texture. Twist your ponytail in counter-clockwise direction, securing with pins, then blast with the FEKKAI Clean Stylers Volume Lock Hairspray for maximum hold. It has nourishing ingredients like Aloe Leaf juice that will keep your chignon looking sleek and shiny. You can add a decorative barrette or bow for some holiday flair.


A high ponytail is a sleek high style where most of the hair is gathered, pulled up and away from the face. Then the stylist secures it at the high point of the back of the head with a hair elastic or accessory, ” explains Frédéric. “Hair can be slicked back and up using the FEKKAI Clean Stylers Glossing Cream+. Hit the pony with a blast of FEKKAI Full Blown Volume Texturizing Spray to add texture, volume and bounce.

For those who prefer a more elevated look, the very high ponytail with leather accessories is a fantastic choice. It adds an edgy and fashionable flair, making a bold statement. This style is great for showcasing volume and movement of textured or coily hair – daring looks are being embraced.
