Happy Holidays from Eva NYC! To get into the holiday spirit, we asked celebrity hairstylist Olivia Halpin on her go-to hair look for any holiday festivity.

Olivia uses the Spectrum Far-Infrared Dryer, the Spectrum Far-Infrared Styling Iron, and everyone’s favorite Kweeen Glitter Spray.  

Step 1: Style Bangs

Start with slightly damp hair. Find your middle part and section out your bangs, or the front pieces of your hair with a comb. Use the Spectrum Far-Infrared Dryer to dry those pieces forward, away from your face.  

Step 2: Blow Dry

With your dryer, take the rest of your hair and begin to blow dry the pieces towards the back. This will make tying a ponytail much easier! 

Step 3: Slick Back

Using a brush, begin to brush back the hair back and start to collect hair to make a ponytail. Use movements going straight back and apply a firm tension with your hand to hold your ponytail tight and tie with an elastic. The sleeker the better.  

Step 4: Heat Style + Twist

Turn on your Spectrum Far-Infrared Styling Iron and set to 400 degrees. Take the iron and straighten out hair in the ponytail in large sections for a sleek, polished finish. Once finished, twist the ponytail and wrap it into a tight bun. Use bobby pins to secure. Leave the ends of your hair untucked for a spiky, fun twist! 

Step 5: Touch Up

To smooth out the front pieces or bangs, comb through and then take the Spectrum styler for one pass on each side.  

Step 6: Glitter
