How To Style The #ODLRxTZR Headband For The Holidays

by Stephanie Montes

We’re completely smitten with the headband from our new collaboration with legendary designer, the late Oscar de la Renta. It’s the perfect holiday-party accessory, so we created 4 festive hairstyles to go with the Swarovski-embellished stunner. These ’dos are so showstopping, they’ll likely make you the talk of holiday soirees. With an accoutrement this sparkly and fabulous, make sure your party dress is simple and let your gorgeous coif make the statement!

Volume For Days

Add edge to your glam hairstyle with a moto jacket and deep coral lipstick.

Step 1: Create an exaggerated side part and smooth with a shine-enhancing styling cream.

Step 2: Prep dry hair with a heat protectant and curl half-inch sections with a ¾-inch wand, making sure all curls go in the same direction.

Step 3: With a boar brush, gently comb out curls starting at the bottom and working your way to the top.

Step 4: In sections, back comb to push curls up and add fullness at the ends.

Step 5: Finish with a strong-hold hair spray and style with the headband.

Romantic Bun

Add a touch of classic polish to an ultrafeminine look with a simple button-up and deep plum lipstick.

Step 1: Create a center part and loosely curl hair outward with a 1-inch wand.

Step 2: Bring hair to the nape of the neck, secure into a loose ponytail and braid from the base to ends.

Step 3: Wrap braid around the base of the ponytail and pin in place.

Step 4: Finish with a firm-hold hair spray and the headband.

Short Story

This look is all about textured hair and a bold red lip. Pair it with a simple silk top in a solid hue.

Step 1: Prep hair with a heat protectant and curl scattered pieces with a 1-inch wand in all directions.

Step 2: Use a texturizing spray to create volume and finish by tousling ends with a light pomade for a lived-in look.

Step 3: Position the headband and spray loose ends in place.

Pretty In Plaits

Keep things pretty and festive with a ruffled white blouse and pink lips.

Step 1: Prep the hair with a volumizing dry shampoo to get maximum texture from roots to ends.

Step 2: Tease at the crown and gently smooth the top layer.

Step 3: Braid hair to one side, pin any loose ends and spritz with a strong-hold finishing spray.

Step 4: Accessorize with the headband.
