We are making our list and checking it twice.

With the holidays upon us, it’s time to get set for seeing friends and family… and generally looking your best.

From Minnesota School of Cosmetology, here are 12 beauty trends to get your holiday started off right!

12. Bold lips for the holidays

Bold lips are in—try a red, maroon or mauve color to make your lips pop!

11. Add a touch of sparkle

Adding a touch of sparkle to your daily look will take it from voom to va va va voom! Such a simple addition that you can do for the holidays!

10. Luscious Lashes

Apply dark brown or black eye liner on your top eyelid, not directly on top of your eye lashes but in between them, apply a clear coat of mascara, and then add your usual mascara.

9. Delightful treats for your hair

There are many things you can do to make your hair healthy. Treat your hair to a conditioning treatment.

8. Instant facelift

With the winter weather doing damage to your skin, make sure you pamper yourself with a facial. MSC uses Dermalogica products and offers wonderful facials. If you haven’t tried a facial at MSC, give us a call today (1-877-541-8777) to schedule yours!

7. Flawless foundation

Check out Glamour for a great article with tips on how to have flawless foundation.

6. Color hues for the holidays

Trending this winter has been face-framing highlights and adding some shine! Check out this Harper’s Bazaar article for other trends.

5. Mistletoe ready lips

That time of year is quickly approaching when mistletoe will be all around. Michelle Phan has a great post on how to prepare your lips for the season.

4. Knock your socks off

Baby it’s cold outside! Make sure you aren’t forgetting about your pretty toes. Even when it’s cold out, it’s still important to take care of your feet. Get out of the house and relax at the salon with a pedicure.

3. Mani-cure your winter blues

It is important during the winter months to exfoliate your hands and keep your nails and cuticles conditioned. There are a lot of fabulous nail polish colors out there for the winter months and many fun designs.

2. Holiday hairstyles

With the holidays around the corner—and wrapping presents, cooking and cleaning still needing to be done—the last thing on your mind is how you are going to style your hair. We love these holiday hairstyles from about style.

1. December discounts, deals and steals

MSC-Plymouth is currently offering buy one-get one of equal or lesser value free on all products. We also have a $50 gift card for only $37.50.

Happy Holiday’s from Minnesota School of Cosmetology! We wish you a safe and beautiful holiday season!
