New Year’s Eve is the ultimate party, and Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany is the ultimate party girl! Her jeweled french twist is just waiting for a flirty, festive NYE celebration. And when it comes to the makeup–a black, glitter lip and liner adds edge, just in case anyone thinks they can kiss you at midnight without asking your permission first. Below, the oh-so-talented Michael Angelo from Wonderland Beauty Parlor in NYC breaks down how to turn yourself into Holly before the clock strikes midnight.
Prep the hair for the twist with Shu Uemura Texture Wave and tease upwards before loosely brushing to one side of the head. Place a few vertical bobby pins up the center. Sweep the hair that’s down back toward center, twisting upwards as you go. Secure the back with horizontally placed hairpins, interlocking with the bobby pins as you go. Pull out a few strands around the face to keep the look modern and hold it all in place with Shu Uemura Sheer Lacquer. Add on Jennifer Behr crystal encrusted bobby pins for extra glam and glitter.
