Fashionistas, the holidays are here and it’s our best excuse for sequins, ugly sweaters and boots galore! It’s time to wrap those gifts and wrap up the year with a fresh, new look!

The weather outside can be frightful, but keeping warm does not have to be a fashion block. In a city like San Francisco, the chilly air makes winter coats and Uggs a go-to look day after day. And in the hustle and bustle of city life, it’s easy to feel like you’re drowning in a sea of peacoats and rain boots of nudes and blacks. Keeping warm is number one! But taking a detour to a beauty bar on your daily fashion journey can be a great way to accessorize and differentiate yourself from the hundreds of bundled up busy bees.

Flat irons and curling devices can be tucked away this season because your natural curls love this weather! This curly cat knows how to play up her makeup and hair to create a unique and personalized look. Her curls add personality and spunk to any winter outfit. They are sassy, sensual and super soft…often replacing the need for bulky scarves and hats! Big, bold hair is fashion forward, cozy and back in season! Not only is fluffing up your hair an added layer of warmth, but curls are chock full of personality. With the perfect amount of moisture in the air, the humidity is long gone and the crisp, cold fog is back on your beauty side!

This Fashionista wears a bold eye and a nude lip to accentuate her fiery, short hairdo. To top it off, she wears a personalized leather jacket, and goes for a punk-rocker all-black look! With added details like leather gloves, some funky socks and a pair of black leather booties, this diva creates a fresh, feminine and edgy cold weather outfit.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: Get this look with a bold eyeliner, waterproof mascara and a nude lip! Be bold and funk up your curls with great recommended products like DevaCurl, Kinky Curly Curling Custard and my personal favorite: Ouidad.
