The Most Photographed Season

The holidays are the most photographed season, and we know that having the perfect hair is a must! We understand the importance of getting it just right, which is why we want to give that little extra inspiration. In the most photographed season of the year, the holidays, how do you choose the perfect hair? Well, we asked our stylists their “go-to” holiday looks, and how to make it easy or doll it up!


Make it Easy, or Doll it Up?

At Dosha, we say you can have it both ways! Choosing your holiday hairstyle, whether it be the perfect blowout, an effortless topknot, or amazing curls is ultimately about your preference.Dosha Blog "The most photographed season" - image of a topknot hairstyle

For Stylist Olivia Paulsen, her “favorite holiday hairstyle is the effortless topknot. It’s an easy style I can wear for a few days to avoid overwashing.” To refresh the style, she likes to “use Aveda Shampowder™ on day two or three”. For our Stylist Jordyn Davis, “the easiest holiday hairstyle is definitely the blowout! It is the perfect way to do my hair for the holiday season - the quicker the better”. 

Now let’s talk texture! We cannot deny how beautiful curls makes the holiday look. For those natural curls, whether it is pinned up or loose, we recommend using Aveda Be Curly curl enhancer on damp hair. It simplifies your curl care so that all you need to refresh those curls is dampen your hair and re-apply on day two or three. You’ll see the difference!


Styling Holiday Hair with Ease

Holiday hairstyles can be as “easy as pie”, especially with practice, and we have ways to help you simplify the process and make your most memorable “picture” moments last. 

If you like to keep your hair up and out of the way, creating the effortless topknot is as simple as its name. To start, Master Stylist Olivia recommends “using a Mason Pearson brush to smooth the hair into a high pony leaving some hair out around the face to elevate the bun. Then, wrap the hair into a sleek roll and pin”. To keep give extra volume, add “Aveda Shampowder™ (on roots) to keep it looking fresh and finish with Aveda Air control™ to secure”.

For those long layers and wispy bangs, the perfect blowout is also a seasonal must.Dosha Blog "The most photographed season" - the perfect blowout For Stylist Jordyn, they “feel the most beautiful when I wear my hair down and it looks shiny and healthy”. To create the easy blowout, Jordyn recommends “using Aveda Botanical Repair™ Styling Cream or Smooth Infusion™ Perfect Blow Dry Spray. For a little texture and volume, I love using Invati™ Thickening Foam or Texture Tonic. If I am feeling up for it, I will add beach waves using my flat iron or a large barrel curling iron, and lots of Shampowder™!

When you want natural curls to make a statement, try “smoothing Aveda Be Curly curl enhancer generously on damp hair. Dry naturally or blow-dry with a diffuser for added volume and curl definition. For wavy hair, take large sections of hair, and create twists with your fingers. Let air dry. For extra hold, pair with Be curly curl enhancing hair spray".
