It's the holiday season. The gifts are wrapped, the dinner menu is set, but your look.... well let's just say it could use some holiday glam. 

No need to worry.  Nadwa Yono, owner of Nadwa Hair Spa in West Bloomfield, Michigan paid a visit to Fox 2 to share secrets that will transform your hair from ho-hum to a head-turner at your next holiday event.

The secret? "Braids and braid extensions," said Yono. "Braids are the hot trend this season, and you can add elegance and style in just three steps, even if you have short hair."
So if you are daring and creative with your hair style, try this at home:
 
The Holiday Bun
Ideal for short-to-medium length hair
Here's what you'll need:

·       Braided extension
·       Bobby pins
·       Rubber band
·       Teasing Comb (optional)
 
Directions:
1.     Start by pinning the braided extension into your hair at the crown or along your hairline. Make it unique by playing up holiday colors or mismatching shades for the ombre effect.
2.     Next, tease the hair at the crown for added volume (optional). Grasp two sections of hair directly above the braid, and twist over to cover the attachment.
3.     Finally, gather the hair into a loose bun, and pin until the desired look is achieved.

The Braided Twist
Ideal for long hair
Here's what you'll need:

·       Bobby pins
·       Rubber band
·       Braided extension (optional)

Directions:
1.     Start by splitting the hair into two sections and French braid all the way down tying with rubber band. If you have short or thin hair, pin in a braided extension and blend with hair.
2.     Next, pull pieces out of the braid to frame face.
3.     Finally, twist braids into a loose bun, pinning until you have achieved the desired look.
