Holiday Hair Ideas by Dove Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend

As we are suddenly in the midst of soiree season – wanted to share the below holiday hair ideas from Dove Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend to help you achieve the perfect holiday hair for any occasion. From office party to New Year’s Eve bash, Dove Hair wants to make sure every woman looks and feels her best all throughout soiree season. Please find Mark Townsend’s curated holiday hair tips and how-tos below, straight from the red carpet!

Dove Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend’s Holiday Hair Tips & Tricks

Look 1: If soiree season has you strapped for time, opt for a playful ponytail like THIS look Dakota Johnson rocked at this year’s LACMA awards.

1. Start by applying a dollop of Dove Style+Care Nourishing Curls Whipped Cream Mousse to damp hair and blow dry with a round brush to get the hair smooth and shiny with lots of body and movement.

2. Then, gather hair into a ponytail and secure with two tight elastics like these from Blax (I always use 2 elastics to keep the ponytail nice and tight throughout the night).

3. Next, use a 1 inch curling iron like Harry Josh Pro Tools Curling Iron to add waves to the hair inside the ponytail

4. What makes a ponytail red carpet ready is the details, so I spray Dove Style+Care Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray on a reusable mascara wand to clean up any loose hairs at the nape of the neck and around the ears, before wrapping a 1 inch piece of velvet around the base of the ponytail (you can also wrap a small section of hair around the pony-tail and secure with a bobby pin).

5. To finish, spray dry shampoo like Dove Refresh+Care Dry Shampoo on the ponytail for texture and hold. If you have fringe like Dakota, dry shampoo will keep hair in place without making it stiff!

Look 2: I’m obsessed with bobs and deep side parts for winter. If you have shorter hair, go with THIS cool-girl, modern style with a touch of sophistication sported by Rachel McAdams at the Gotham Awards.

1. Start by liberally spritzing Dove Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray throughout damp hair and blow dry with a round brush for long lasting volume.

2. After hair is dry, create a deep side part about 4 inches from the top of your ear, then wrap 3 to 4 inch sections of hair around a 1 inch Harry Josh Pro Tools Ceramic Curling Iron to create loose bends in the hair.

3. For added texture and shine, spray Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black Dry Shampoo throughout hair while scrunching with hands.

Pro Tip: To keep the deep side part in place and tame any flyaway hairs, spray Dove Style+Care Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray on a natural bristle toothbrush and run it over any areas in need of some extra hold for a totally polished style.

Look 3: For a fashion forward yet festive look, try a wrapped ponytail like THIS one as seen on Elizabeth Olsen that was inspired by Michelle Pfeiffer in Tequila Sunrise. The best part about this style is that it looks perfect on clean or unwashed hair!

1. Prep hair with a smoothing shampoo and conditioner like the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil line and blow dry hair with a paddle brush.

2. Next, section hair into three sections and secure with elastics to create three separate ponytails; one just below the crown, the next at eye level, and the last at the nape of the neck.

3. Spray Dove Refresh+Care Dry Shampoo on all three ponytails for extra grip, then wrap a long velvet ribbon of your choice around the ponytails starting from the top, connecting them together as you move down, and using black bobby pins to secure the ribbon as you twist to the end.

Get The Look: Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Johnson at the Toronto International Film Festival

See below for details on how Mark got Elizabeth and Dakota ready for their respective premieres, thanks to Dove Hair!

Elizabeth Olsen Premiere Look
“For the ‘I Saw The Light’ premiere, Elizabeth and I talked about doing an up-do and we wanted to keep it chic and not too overdone. Textured up styles are such a huge trend because the hair is away from the face but still has a style to it.” – Mark

Get the Look!

Step 1
Start by placing a few drops of Dove Pure Care Dry Oil on damp hair and comb it through. I’m obsessed with this oil because it nourishes the hair from the inside and then seals the cuticle for smooth, silky hair. It never weighs the hair down!

Step 2
Add a dollop of Dove Style + Care Nourishing Curls Mousse to hair and scrunch while blow-drying for texture.

Step 3
When the hair is dry, take a small amount of Sally Hershberger 24K Texturizing Paste in hands and rake it through the hair for cool texture, hold, and to tame the flyaway hairs.

Step 4
Then pull the hair back and twist it into a bun (you could easily pull hair into a ponytail and then wrap the ponytail around the base) and secure with bobby pins. When putting in bobby pins, always use an even number and apply them in “X” formation for added security.

Step 5
To keep the hair in place (throughout the premiere and after party), finish by liberally spraying Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray all over.

Dakota Johnson Premiere Look
“For the premiere of ‘Black Mass’, Dakota Johnson inspired and encouraged me to do my favorite thing ­ a textured up do! When I first saw the stunning Alexander McQueen dress she chose for the premiere my mind was overloaded with inspiration. We made the decision to do messy knots in the back and a side part with her fringe. I loved the finished look and so did she!” – Mark

Get The Look!

Step 1
Start by applying a few drops of Dove Pure Care Dry Oil to damp hair from mid lengths to ends to seal the cuticle.

Step 2
Spray Dove Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray on roots and blow-dry with a round brush. When the hair is dry, take random sections of hair varying from 1 inch to 4 inches and wrap the hair in a figure 8 using the R Session Pro Tools Tidal Waver to create bends throughout the Hair.

Step 3
Take Sally Hershberger 24K Texturizing Paste in hands and rake through hair to make it piecey and to give some hold to the hair.

Step 4
With shoulder length hair like Dakota’s I knew it would be difficult to pull it all back and up in one action — take 2 to 4 inch sections of hair and twist back to create little knots at the nape of the neck, securing each one with 2 bobby pins in an “X” formation. I left the back quite messy because we liked the juxtaposition with the smooth front. Leave some whispy pieces around the face if you wish and blow-dry the fringe to the side with a flat brush.

Step 5
Finish by very liberally spraying Dove Style + Care Extra Hold Hairspray all over hair (to last all night!)
