Chop Salon shares the secret to this holiday hairstyle

The last thing you want from a holiday ‘do is hair that overwhelms or distracts. To go with the classic elegance of the season, Kihan, co-owner of Chop Salon at Restaurant Row, suggests a look that’s smooth, chic and simple in front, with exaggerated volume in the back for that unforgettable “Wow” factor.

“Fashion has gone really simple, so it’s all about accessorizing, pairing a simple dress with strong heels, wearing something beautiful in your hair,” Kihan says.

Just don’t overdo it. “You don’t want to look like a Christmas tree,” he said.

To create the look on this page, Chop products were used. Hair was blow-dried with Smoothing Gel, followed by Silky Style Cream and Hair Repair Serum for shine, Nourishing Volume Foam for volume, and Firm Hold Spray to keep tresses in place. Hair can be parted in any place comfortable to the wearer. The look is finished with a jeweled hair clip ($139.99) from Soho, Ala Moana Center.
