Quick and Easy Glamorous Hairstyles You Can Do in Minutes

Turn heads with glamorous and easy holiday hairstyles from Nadwa Yono, owner of Nadwa Hair Spa in West Bloomfield.

Need a quick, glam makeover for the holidays, but don’t have the time or money for a professional creation? Nadwa Yono, owner of Nadwa Hair Spa in West Bloomfield, shares secrets that will transform your hair from ho-hum to a head-turner at your next holiday event. The secret?

“Braids and braid extensions,” said Yono. “Braids are the hot trend this season, and you can add elegance and style in just three steps, even if you have short hair.”

If you are creative with your hair style, try this at home:

The Holiday Bun

Ideal for short-to-medium length hair

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Braided extension
  • Bobby pins
  • Rubber band
  • Teasing Comb (optional)


1. Start by pinning the braided extension into your hair at the crown or along your hairline. Make it unique by playing up holiday colors or mismatching shades for the ombre effect.

2. Next, tease the hair at the crown for added volume (optional). Grasp two sections of hair directly above the braid, and twist over to cover the attachment.

3. Finally, gather the hair into a loose bun, and pin until the desired look is achieved.

The Braided Twist

Ideal for long hair

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Bobby pins
  • Rubber band
  • Braided extension (optional)


1. Start by splitting the hair into two sections and French braid all the way down tying with rubber band. If you have short or thin hair, pin in a braided extension and blend with hair.

2. Next, pull pieces out of the braid to frame face.

3. Finally, twist braids into a loose bun, pinning until you have achieved the desired look.

“Not everyone is good with hair,” said Yono. “But have a little faith, there is hope even for the most ‘hair challenged’ who take my free how-to class.”

In addition to the hair how-to there will be a make-up artist from La Bella Donna to do your holiday make-up to go with your new holiday hairstyle.  La Bela Dona is the first mineral make-up to hit the market. It is 100 percent natural and Nadwa Hair Spa has been using and carrying it for more than 18 years.  After you learn a new holiday hairstyle receive a complimentary make-up application or get assistance with your hair. Hors d’oeuvres will be provided. 

Seating is limited for this complimentary hair workshop on Thursday, December 13, 2012, 3 to 4 p.m. at Nadwa Hair Spa (6923 Orchard Lake Road, West Bloomfield, Mich., 48322).  A reservation is required and can be made by calling  (248) 851-8100.
