4 Festive Hairstyles to Take you from Christmas to New Year

We love the festive season as it’s the one time of the year that you can quite simply, show off! It’s ‘OK’ to dress head-to-toe in sequins, adorn yourselves in bling and dance from dusk til dawn! With this in mind we think you’re going to need some hair inspiration to take you from Christmas eve catch-ups to New Year’s Eve celebrations. Here is our 4 top picks!

Slicked Back

Slicked back hairstyles scream ‘high-fashion’ and they have been everywhere this season. Add some edge to a pretty dress with a super-straight, high-shine do. You’ll need our DiamonSilk flat irons to complete the look as the diamond-coated plates add an unparallelled shine!

Soft Waves

Soft waves aren’t just for the beach, Sarah Jessica Parker shows they can look very chic and feminine with a LBD! To achieve this look twist small strands of the hair before wrapping around the barrel of your curling tong.

80s Inspired Curls

Remain on-trend with 80s inspired curls and a deep side-part  – the TwinFusion, is an ideal tool for this –  add texture by backcombing through the curls to give a less structured finish.

The Perfect Blowdry

Sleek hair is trendy this season, and it’s perfect for the holidays because it looks well finished. After blowdrying your hair using a round brush to smooth and curl under, use a wide-barreled tong to curl under the ends to add definition and the illusion of extra volume.

Which Curler Does What?

So you long for loose long curls like the Victoria’s Secret models, but you keep ending up with springy spirals? We think you may be using the wrong curler size!

There are several different sizes to choose from, which can be confusing! Each barrel size has its own unique finish, which can drastically effect the outcome and your desired look. So we have decided to take the hassle out of choosing and listed below each curler size and what it can be used for.

38T Big Curls & Salon Blow-driesImage

This is the largest curler with a 38mm barrel. It’s great for achieving  the very wide and thick curls we often see on Hollywood starlets such as Kim Kardashian. This curler is also perfect for achieving the Chelsea blow-dry look, but curling under the ends. This creates the illusion of volume and is great if you want to fake a salon blowout!

19T Naturally Curly & Perfectly Defined

If you have naturally curly hair you will want a 19mm barreled curler like the 19T to ensure your curls are perfectly defined. We have seen a lot of shorted hair lengths with curls or waves recently, so we will call this a trend! This barrel size is crucial for shorter hair lengths that want gorgeous, defined curls.

You can now get Maya Diab’s fabulous hair by following the next steps and using EIDEAL™’s E-PRO ELEGANT CURLING IRONS.

Always start by washing your hair. Then, put some hairspray at the roots for extra volume and gently massage that area. If your hair is thick, you could use a little balsam and massage gently one more time. After that, comb your hair to distribute the previously applied products evenly.

Once done with the preparations, blow-dry your hair.

Divide your hair into 3 sections and catch each section with a hairpin. Depending on how you like your curls, choose the thickness of the strands.

Now is the time to start curling! Take each strand and twist it around the curler and then catch it with pliers at the tip of your hair. The estimated time for keeping the strand caught in the curler is 30 seconds to the maximum, but this time may vary depending on your hair type.

Important tip: don’t you get the idea of combing your curls! For a denser look, simply run your fingers down the curls. When done with the curling process, apply some more hairspray for extra hold.

Get curling, ladies!

Now you can get the waves you’ve always wanted in 3 extremely easy steps with the E-CURLER from EIDEAL™.

Step 1: Section your hair by placing your thumbs above your ears and drawing a line around the back pf your head until your thumbs meet. After that, simply gather the hair above your thumbs and clip it out of the way.

Then, place the E-CURLER in at the roots, rotate it 180 degrees and glide the curler through the hair till you reach the tips. Catch each section as it falls, and then twist it around your finger loosely so as to define the wave.

Step 3: The same technique should be used for the rest of your hair. If you like to create soft curls at the ends of your hair, simply straighter the latter and then rotate 180 degrees towards the end. Finish off your hairstyle with a little bit more hairspray to make sure the waves will hold better.

So what are you waiting for? Get those curls on and add instant glamour to your look!

Haysam Eid, The man behind EIDEAL™

Haysam Eid, The man behind EIDEAL™

Haysam Eid, The man behind EIDEAL™

  1. Haysam you are a young and ambitious person doing business in the beauty industry. How come you chose this sector?

I was raised in a family where Art and Beauty are major. Mr. Younes Eid, my father, is one of the most famous hairdressers worldwide and the owner of Salon YOUNES EID the 3rd Best Salon in the World as ranked by ESTETICA Design in 2005. In fact, he is not only a hair stylist, but also a painter. My talents, ability and proficiency flourished owing to his constant support and back up. He granted me his good taste and savoir-faire in the world of beauty, and he still inspires me in each and every step toward success and special achievements. I myself won the first award of Fabriano painting competition at school, when my artistic tendency was discovered.

2. As far as we know you started your career after graduating from the worlds’ greatest hairstylist academy in London. Share with us your experience there.

After finishing school, it was the time to take a major decision in my life: shall I join university as most of people do or follow the path I finally chose? At that time, everything was just a simple idea I had to share at some point with my family before taking the final decision. For me, I always wanted to do something different; I don’t necessarily mean by different something that no one ever did, yet different is to have a unique twist. I thought I would do it the other way around; I would learn hairdressing at a young age and then join the university. On one hand, my father disagreed since he never expected nor wanted me to become a hairdresser; on the other, my mother supported me to the end and advised me to follow my instinct. Therefore, after convincing my father, I decided to join the world’s greatest hairstyling academy in London, where I completed my cutting and styling studies and accomplished TONI&GUY Cut & Color NVQ course (in 2004). I went to London when I was a kid, and this country played a major role in my life: I found out a lot about different cultures and people where I learned how to be completely independent. When I first joined the academy, it was weird to have student from abroad since the majority of students came from England itself. I had to work hard and to prove myself. And I did it. I still remember the last day of the graduation when I did a photo shoots for the models; I made every possible effort and I used all my skills to succeed. My goal that day was to surprise my father who couldn’t attend the graduation. I also owe my mother this success for being present besides me on my graduation day and for doing the makeup for the models; it is noteworthy that makeup was her passion and so art runs in the family. Finally I came back to Lebanon with a pleasant and rich portfolio, from which many pictures are picked up for the salon ads.

3. Up to now you are the only hair stylist in the Middle East region that you successfully completed the prestigious L’Oreal Professional Specialist Degree. What does this means for you?

Being the only hair stylist in the Middle East to have successfully completed the prestigious L’Oreal Professional Color Specialist Degree means a lot to me, especially that it wasn’t easy to get there. I first had to sit for an entrance examination to ensure that I enjoy the right level. I was first rejected not because I failed in the examination, but because this course was designated only for the hairdressers in England, as I was informed later on. At this stage, I got really upset, because despite the fact that I have passed the examination and achieved great results, they didn’t offer me the opportunity to proceed. Thus, I sent an email to the competent party insisting that it was unfair to take such a decision and objecting to the fact that they made me sit for the test knowing in advance that my candidature is rejected. I think my persistence got me there, because I finally got an acceptance. I even graduated with 94%. The last day, the director came to me saying, “Did you notice that you were the 11th student on the course this year?” I said, “so what?” He answered, “We usually take 10 people only since it’s an intensive course and you were an exception, very well done, I am proud of you!” I will never forget those words. I will never forget the tough moments when I saw some people leaving the course crying, while I had the chance to continue till the end. I am definitely proud of such an achievement.

4. Your father Younes Eid runs a really well known Salon in Beirut in Lebanon. You mentioned that he is your idol, the person who inspired you most. Tell us some things about him and what lessons did he teach you?

Yes, my father has always been my idol, at the very beginning; he taught me the modesty, an essential component for success, in addition to the hard work to achieve the goals. He used to tell me “no one is better than you Haysam, if something is doable, then you can do it!” I believe in these words and that’s how I have made it here so far.

5. Who is the most famous person that you ever took care in the Salon there?

For me, every client is famous; she comes to my salon to make her feel famous. She comes to me to take good care of her beauty and to give her all the needed professional attention and advice. This is hairdressing. For me, the hairdresser is a physician. A client wouldn’t go to the hairdresser if she hasn’t a problem with her hair, and by fixing this problem, you should make her happy, satisfied and self confident, because she wears her hair every day. If she doesn’t like it, she can’t take it off! I believe I got the trust of all my clientele, and I have taken care not only many people well known in the art field, but also of famous men and women in the high class society, but I prefer not to mention their names as respect for their privacy.

6. You grew up in Beirut. May you describe us the neighborhood where you spend your childhood?

I was born and I grew up in Sidon (Saida in Arabic), the capital of the South of Lebanon; I lived in that town until I changed school and moved to Beirut. Saida is a small city, where people know each other. It is surrounded by beautiful orchards of oranges, lemon, banana and loquat trees. I lived a beautiful childhood with my family and school friends.

7. What your country, Lebanon, means for you?

Lebanon is home for me, it’s where I belong, where I was raised and where my best memories are. It’s where I got my education and culture.

8. At this moment you have created your own brand, EIDEAL (www.eidealonline.com) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Tell us some things about your company.

EIDEAL™ is a leading appliance and hair accessories brand known in the MENA region, setting new standards for professional hair care in the beauty industry.

9. How the idea of your company came in your mind?

I joined university to major in Business Management and I learned to combine the artistic and creative sense with my entrepreneurial and managerial capacities. My vision was to create a brand for my own salon use, as to complete the march of my father, the designer and creator of a small range of personal use brushes, and to take it to a higher and more developed level. Thus, it is only through holding to this vision, that my work and accomplishment were brought into manifestation. However, my ambitions were limitless and my dreams were ever growing. Charged with enthusiasm and backed up by persistence, I decided to establish EIDEAL™; a brand combining my name with idealism and specialized in hair appliances, accessories, brushes and scissors for professional hair salons. In fact, the idea of EIDEAL™ came to my mind in 2008, started with one product and didn’t take long to expand and cover a wide range of products.

10. What kind of difficulties you faced in your early beginning? May you share us some experiences from that time?

Difficulties are always there at the beginning, especially when you start something from scratch, I built the brand from zero, coming up with the name, concept, products, designs, technology, etc…, and I set up the whole team and distribution channel, trying to convince people about the brand, product and quality. But we finally got to the point where people loved the brand and trusted it.

11. What is your vision for EIDEAL?

Currently, EIDEAL™, the pioneer hair appliances and accessories brand in the region is growing at a very fast pace, thanks to the creative designs and first-class techniques used to provide the customers with great products and unsurpassed services. This is just the beginning of a long promising future in the beauty field; I will always dedicate my creativity and technical hair skills, sense of innovation and the world’s most refined techniques to develop my brand to be Excellent and IDEAL.

12. Dubai is a place where a lot of global celebrities are choosing either to live or to visit. Do you believe that this city may play a major role in the future of the beauty industry?

Absolutely with all what we’ve seen so far in Dubai, I believe everything is doable.  In fact, it is a favorable place for the businesses prosperity. Dubai is a very modern and flourishing city and I am sure that it will play a major role in the future of the beauty industry as in other fields because it is becoming the hub of development in the region.

13. Do you have any expression that represents the way you live?

I can make it…

14. Has your life been different than you have imagined?

I don’t think my life has been so different than I have always imagined. But definitely it was affected in a way or another by different factors. I am definitely still heading to my main goal and objective set from the very beginning. However, I had to change some tactics to get there, and hopefully I will make it!

15. If you could have the chance to do the hair stylist of a celebrity, who this one would be and why?

I would like to do the hair of Penelope Cruz.

I personally love simplicity and I find her simple yet so attractive, charming, elegant and sexy.

16. In order to close this interview, will you tell us how you define beauty?

Numerous are the magazines featuring the most beautiful people in the world, and they are all trying to answer this question “What is beauty?” In fact it’s very simple; beauty is the combination of qualities pleasing the aesthetic senses and especially the sight.
