Holiday Hairstyles to Steal from the Red Carpet

A stale hairstyle can throw off even the most consciously-constructed ensemble. Thankfully, when your inspo tank is running off fumes, there’s one place you can turn to breathe in fresh festive hair inspiration—the oh-so-reliable red carpet. Below, a supply of holiday hair how-to’s—from majestic muses Rihanna and Priyanka Chopra—straight from their hairstylists.

  1. Start by washing the hair with a gentler formula like MOP Gentle Pear Shampoo.
  2. Blow dry the hair completely straight.
  3. Run MOP Mixed Greens Leave-In Conditioner through the ends to smooth the hair back and tame flyaways.
  4. To make it pin straight, flat iron with the Cricket Ultra Smooth Styling Iron and comb all behind the ears.
  5. Place bobby pins on each side of the hair behind the ears and smooth hair over the pins.
  6. To finish, spritz with a firm hold spray like MOP C-System Firm Finish Hair Spray.

  1. Start by washing with MOP’s Mixed Greens Shampoo to help hair withstand humidity and heat from the tools.
  2. Mist MOP’s Pear Detangler and comb through hair to untangle and minimize frizz.
  3. Smooth MOP Mixed Greens Leave-In Conditioner from the mid-shaft to the end to help coat any damage or dryness.
  4. Rough blow-dry the hair with the Cricket WavePro Dryer until 80% dry, then detangle with a Cricket Heat Boss Paddle Brush.
  5. Create a deep side part and flat brush blow-dry the hair straight then go over each section with the Cricket Ultra Smooth Styling Iron from mid-hair shaft to end.
  6. Apply a dollop-sized amount of MOP Orange Peel Molding Cream from the root to mid hair shaft on the side of your hair. Brush through and then with a twisting motion, twist the hair from the scalp to behind the ear and down the back of your neck.
  7. Repeat this same technique minus the twist and gather hair into a low ponytail, secure it with a hair bungee and wrap a section of hair around the bungee to conceal it.
  8. To finish, spray MOP’s C-System Firm Hair Spray around the hair line and around the ponytail.
