Holiday hair

Whoa! I literally gasped when I saw this fiery red side chignon. The instructions are here, and her tomato red lipstick is Clinique's Red Red Red. Even if you wore a black turtleneck and jeans, you'd be the most glamorous girl at the party.

I think her beautiful hair color is part of what makes this so classy and beautiful!

nicole said...

Love this! Gee, I wish I were brave enough to go red!

waitingforulises said...

It´s SO BEUTIFUL

Joanna Goddard said...

seriously, these photos make me want to run to the drugstore and get a box of bright red dye!!

gab said...

This is so pretty! I love her hair color too.

Melanie's Randomness said...

How pretty! *bookmark* I'd love to have this do!

alex said...

okay so then its not just me! I have seen such beautiful redheads all over the place: magazines, street style blogs and the other day when I literally stopped on the street to stare at a woman with the most beautiful red hair I've ever seen. Her confident stride was pretty impressive too.

Though I normally wear my hair down, I'm dying to try some dramatic updo. I was thinking maybe something a little Bridget Bardot, but this side chignon is quite glamorous ....now I just need somewhere to wear it!

Wendy said...

Gorgeous!!!

Katherine Fugit said...

my (gorgeous) red-headed friend was just lamenting to me the other day how she was afraid to wear red lipstick. pshaw! I'm showing her these asap. red heads + red lips= total knockout

Marsi @ The Cottage Cheese said...

Wow, she has the most gorgeous hair! I often consider going red, this puts me in that mood once again :-)

wonderchris said...

Amy Rene said...

I think I'm going to try this for christmas! it's so gorgeous.

KiraLynn said...

Joanna, you read my mind! I saw this yesterday and I loved her lipstick. I have the same skin tone and a similar hair color to the model so I think it might be perfect for me. Now I know what it is, thanks!

jana said...

thank you so much for posting - i LOVE this!

xoxo.

Christine said...

this makes me want to grow my hair out longer! she's beautiful and i ditto the red-hair love in the other comments.

Diana Mieczan said...

Ohh I feel the same, Joanna...Im in love with her hair colour! She looks so elegant!
Wish you a great weekend

Hermione said...

That's so impressive! I will ponder in front of the mirror for a while tomorrow and see if I'm up for the challenge... Hmm.

Fashion Flirt said...

I LOVE that hair style. I have a serious bobby pin problem, and they are scattered around my apartment at all times. It is super easy to pull off - I just did a rough version without a mirror.

Thanks for sharing, doll!

Olivia said...

beautiful!!!!!

Georgie Lowen said...

That is simply stunning! My hair is far too long to do something like that! Boooooooo!

I love that. Though being a redhead, I'm a bit bias! :)

Dancing Branflake said...

Makes me wish I was a redhead going out for a night on the town. Perfection!

Tish said...

while it looks easy enough, i'm sure i could muddle it. when it comes to creating pretty things i'm awkward as heck. lol. but it's dream hair of mine...

emma said...

I posted on that today too! So beautiful

Sera Pie said...

Cute!

Bookmarking this for holiday parties. :)

Heidi said...

So Gorgeous. This makes me happy I'm growing out my bangs, but it would work with long, sideswept bangs too.

abigail said...

Gorgeous!
I will have to throw a party over the holidays just so I can wear my hair like this!

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

Must. Try. This.

Charlie, Feminine Bravery said...

That is way cute, I am definitely saving this so I can give it a go!

Julie-Inspired said...

I love this...I posted it a while ago and it made me dream of having red hair. I guess I'll be a blonde for ever, but at least I can dream. I tried going red once...big disaster.

Notes from Holly St. said...

so stunning! i have a feeling i wouldn't be able to do this 'do on my own.

Wendy said...

I'm with you! I think I WILL run to the drugstore and dye my hair red. Looks perfect for the holiday season and I could use a change!

Jennifer said...

This DIY style is just what I needed for the Marine Corps Ball tomorrow. It's perfection! Here's hoping I can actually pull it off...

holly said...

This is beautiful! Perfect for a bride on a budget- and it looks simple to do! I just wish I could pull off that red lipstick...

Gosia Myƛlicka said...

Wow, that's so beautiful...

jenbern said...

Carissa said...

beautiful! not sure I can pull it off, I'm kind of challenged when it comes to any kind of hair styling, but it is so gorgeous I'd want to try! and I love love love her red hair. I've been contemplating going red and every time I see a pretty red head, it makes my heart swell! haha.

The Bees Knees said...

i might try & mimic this. This is way too cute to pass!

Monique said...

My heart goes bumpity bump for red heads. I love the sexy swoop and the overall unforced, whimsical look of this hairstyle.

The Wanderers' Daughter said...

Yummy, the whole look ! And I love the whole Joan-from-MadMen redhead/red lips thing. Reminds me of an ad from a Holiday issue of Life magazine circe 1963 or so.

Liz said...

So stunning, but mostly I think it's because the model is gorgeous!

Tracey said...

pretty perfect. Off to grow my hair now!

Mariel Torres said...

kristin elena. said...

can't remember where i first saw this, (maybe martha stewart mag) but i instantly fell in love. her color is so stunning! but i'm such a goof, i'd prbly have a hard time getting my hair to do that, and it's def long enough.

Monica from Hola!design said...

I gasped, too! I'll try to recreate this hairdo! it's so chic!

Flora said...

Gorgeous and very useful, tomorrow I have a party and I would try this, hope I can pull it off!

kater said...

After I saw this last night I tried it this morning for work! It was so easy and I got sooo many compliments on it! It's going to be my new go-to hair for work days (I work at a pastry shop and have to keep my hair up!).

Meg said...

whoa that is gorgeous!! i'm definitely going to try it. too bad i don't have her hair color!

Dawnica said...

all right, i've never been more frustrated. just gave up after 35 minutes of trying to do it. maybe it's just me but i'm pretty sure the how-to is USELESS?!?! maybe my hair is just too long... i have sore arms and a grumpy face. help?

Francesca said...

ah! and she makes it look so easy and effortless. and it doesn't hurt that she looks a bit like joan too. stunning.

p.s. dawnica's comment is so funny! so sweet that she tried it already. that will be me at about half past eleven.

Rachel said...

So pretty! I want red hair now. Wonder how it would look in black? I just dyed mine. And why is that I am completely unable to resist a good red lipstick? I have plenty already, but I kind of want that Clinique one now!

candy apples said...

This is really pretty, both color and style♥ I'm not sure if I could pull it off tho since I've got curly hair from the roots

Love your blog :D

I had the same reaction. What a beauty, and gorgeous hair. I have to try this.

Though without that bangin' hair, don't think it will have the same effect. ;0

Grandma Kathleen said...

Hair color from a box but love the style!

Jessica said...

ya know, I had found this picture set awhile ago & took it to a hairstylist for inspiration for a wedding I was in---unfortunately, it did not turn out like this lol. Maybe I'd have better lucky trying it myself? It's just too darn gorgeous!

Roxanne Matiz said...

Wow! Gorgeous hair and style. Must try soon. I, like many other commenters have a lucky red-haired friend who is unfortunately not appreciative enough of her luck. She dyes it brown in the winter and doesn't generally like it. I will have to show her this post to prove to her how beautiful and rare red hair really is. Thanks for sharing the tutorial, Joanna!

myworldinmywords said...

Hi Jo. Love your blog. That Chignon picture is the exact one that I took to my hairdresser for my wedding hair. Isn't it amazing. So simple, and elegant. If you are interested in how it translated in real life, my wedding pics are up on my blog right now. I got tons of compliments on the 'do and a month later, my husband's cousin had almost identical hair at her wedding. Coincidence...;)

Gorgeous,but what a stunning girl with that red hair and fair skin.

Love this hair-do so much that I used it for my own wedding! Printed all the photos out and took it to my hair dresser in the Riviera Maya. It was great that I had photos since I barely speak Spanish and she didn't speak a lick of English! It turned out beautiful! Thanks for the inspiration!

Ok, so I'm with Dawnica... is there a couple steps missing? I don't see how the other hair was pulled back after the twist to the side. Bunched and pinned? Rolled into buns and pinned?
Can someone advise?
