5 Christmas Hairstyles & Holiday Hair To Try In 2022 546 450 Number 4 High Performance Hair Care

BONJOUR DAH-LING!

Want to know what’s sleigh-ing this winter? Let Number 4 High Performance Hair Care guide you through the top trending holiday and Chrsitmas hairstyles to get you done up and decorated this holiday season!

Read on to find the high performance hair care products you need to pack for Xmas Vacations!

Holiday hairstyle ideas for 2022

1. Get in the holiday hairstyle spirits with liquid hair

Just like Santa, this look is everywhere, and it doesn’t look likely to go away any time soon. Zendaya, Kim K, J Lo, Duo Lipa… They all have hair so smooth it looks like liquid.

Everyone envies sleek and shiny liquid strands no matter the occasion, and good news, dah-ling, this look is possible with your basic hair styling tools and Number 4 Hair Care products.

So what’s the secret to smooth, silky hair that glows and shines without succumbing to frost-related frizz?

Smoothing products like N4’s Blow Dry Lotion worked into the hair during your blow out, followed up with the Smoothing Balm, and a follow-up with the flat iron will give your hair a silky, smooth, and frizz-free finish.

If you require lots of heat to straighten your strands, remember to use heat protection like N4’s Thermal Styling Spray before you go at it with the dryer and flat iron.

Point your dryer’s nozzle down and away from the scalp to achieve the desired flat and flowing look. Parfait!

2. Yule love these vintage 20s curls

Well, it is the roaring 20s! Of course, heat styling tools were not commonplace a hundred years ago. Stylists worked with wet hair, a handful of hair gel, and their fingers to achieve this famous look.

These days, we have faster, arguably better means of achieving the same goals, which is just as well, seeing as modern-day fast-paced lifestyles sometimes leave us wishing we had more time to squeeze everything in!

Treat yours-elf to this fun and fancy vintage style if you’re heading out to a cocktail party, posh meal, or simply just because. To achieve this iconic style, simply grab your comb, a curling iron, some clips, and N4’s Texture Styling Cream, then follow the Dah-ling Blog with hair tutorials.

3. Gin-gle all the way back to the 70s with this viral blowout!

A whole generation of social media users just discovered who Farah Fawcett is when this hair-styling hack suddenly went viral in 2022.

Yes, my bon-bons, the iconic 70s look is back in fashion, and we’re starting to notice a trend for the winter of 2022…

Thousands of content creators flocked to a popular social media page to recreate the bouncy, voluminous tresses with frankly surprising results.

Otherwise known as the Butterfly Haircut, this fierce do will look great at that work’s Christmas party, or even as a way to keep it simple for the festive family dinner.

There are dozens of different techniques to learn, so shop around and find one you like.

Pump up the volume on this dramatic ‘do with the N4 Volumizing Shampoo, don’t forget to follow up with the accompanying Conditioner for extra bounce and elasticity. Both products are sulfate and paraben free.

Use N4 Blow Dry Lotion for a fast and effective blowout, and don’t forget to add Thermal Styling Spray before going at your hair with the dryer!

4. Sleigh – away like an Ice Queen with this regal crown braid

Simple, quick, and easy and perfect for when you don’t have time to wash and dry your hair before that long-awaited festive fun.

Spray your hair before braiding with N4’s Sugar Texturizing Spray to create a sweet, touchably soft, flexible braid that aids your tresses in defense against environmental stresses and other damage.

Dress up your queenly braid with some baubles and shiny clips, and accessorize to your heart’s content; the more glitter, the better!

Give your crown the royal seal with N4’s Non Aerosol Hair Spray for all-day (or all-night) hold without stiffness or stickiness.

Safely re-apply this hairspray, confident in the knowledge that your hair-do isn’t contributing to harmful aerosol emissions.

5. Ready, set, glow- with a quick and easy tight twist bun

Another holiday hairstyle theme popping up in 2022 is the slicked-back, sleek, and shiny style like this tight, low bun.

This ‘do is easy and simple to recreate. Comb through some N4 Fluoro5 Elixer to boost that shine and add some extra protection from the elements before using a narrow tooth comb to pull your hair straight back.

Twist and wrap the hair at the bun’s base and secure it into a knot with your hair tie.

Don’t forget to accessorize that knot with a neat bun claw clip, especially if your hair is long or dense, to prevent collapse later in the day.

Spray with N4’s Non Aerosol Hair Spray for a smooth recovery throughout your festive hangover and beyond.

If you need more advice, simply tune in to our tutorial videos on the N4 website!

Don’t forget to snap an ‘elfie for social media and tag N4 this ho-ho-holiday season.

My go to product

I’ve used it on wet hair, dry hair, before bed hair, hurry and get ready for work hair and it has never failed me! I use it on my three year old granddaughter’s hair, which is wavy and frizzes easily and one use after bath and she good to go!

Best hair product

I have tried so many different hair products for my curly hair and nothing would work. My hair gets frizzy easily, so this calms my hair down very well and gives me nice curls. I use this product + the styling foam!

6 reviews for Smoothing Balm 4.9oz

  1. Michelle

    This product mixed with the Blow Dry Lotion leaves my hair looking so soft and shiny, like I just left the salon. I highly recommend.

  2. Rosella Morgan (verified owner)

    This stuff is AMAZING!! Seriously, hands down the best product I’ve used. It leaves my hair so soft, I can’t keep my hands off of it! I have natural curly hair and this keeps my straight style smooth and perfect all day – even with my contestant touching. Don’t hesitate, buy this – it’s worth it!!

  3. courtneymckibbin (verified owner)

    This stuff is incredible… I threw all of my other products away after one use. I have thick, naturally curly hair, and this deflated it without making it greasy. My hair is so soft and transformed; I can’t stop touching it! It works great for air drying or blow drying. Paired it with the hydrating shampoo and conditioner, and will never go back.

  4. lbeird (verified owner)

    I ordered the full sized Smoothing Balm after receiving a mini in a beauty box. I have very, very fine hair, styled in a pixie cut. I have a lot of hair, albeit fine. You wouldn’t think from the product details that this balm would work on my hair… but it does! It takes out static and smooths, but doesn’t weigh down my hair. I blow dry upside down, run a mini flat iron through, smooth a little balm on, and hair spray – DONE. It takes all of 5 minutes!

  5. ginnygirlu2

    This makes you feel just like you stepped out of a salon. the scent is so fabulous. I was hopeful it would smooth my thick hair but I was not expecting it to make it feel so healthy and like silk. I straigtened my hair and again, I did not expect it to help with my tools but it really cut the drying time down. I can’t believe it! It is that good & smells that good! kind of like a very light high end cologne. I don’t think it would offend many people’s nose. It is hard to find other than here. I received a small bottle in my #birthbox Need the big bottle but a little go’s a long way and I have long hair.

  6. vickisorders

    I’m 65 years old and used to have thick, heavy, lovely hair; I could do anything with it. Now, like most older women, my hair is thinner, drier, and more brittle. I still wear it long, so I’ve been looking for a product that will moisturize my hair and make it more elastic, will reduce the tangling at the ends (which leads to split ends), and will restore the smooth shine that I used to have. This is it. I still blow my hair dry for styling, and it left my hair smooth, shiny, and with thicker volume without feeling sticky, stiff, or oily. It almost feels like my 20-year-old hair again. Lovely product.
