Fancy Hair for the Holidays

Decorative barrette in slicked back hair

The season of holiday weddings and parties has arrived, and we’re gearing up to help you look your absolute best! If you’ve got a special event coming up, read on and be inspired to find your perfect holiday look.

Elegant updo. This pretty hairstyle is a fabulous look for the office party or an event where you might need to wear it for more than a few hours. Pinned up, but not super formal, this will look as sexy with a dress as it would with jeans and a nice shirt.

Messy bun with braid. Braids- when worn this way at least- are a great way to get noticed at any event. Easy to do by yourself at home, this messy knotted, braided bun looks great all day and night!

Large crown braid and pony. There’s just something about a crown braid that says “I’m ready for fun”. Try this slightly messy style with a long, voluminous ponytail for a night out or a low-key wedding.

Sleek chignon. A classy look, this style is pretty easy to create while packing a mega style punch. Create it at home by first securing a low ponytail before twisting the end around the base and securing it just above the nape of the neck. You’ll look pretty and well put-together for any event with this pretty ‘do!

Slicked back sexy. In the high-fashion world, pulling your hair back off your face to reveal gorgeous cheekbones, a shapely nose, smoldering eyes, and a bold lip is the key to a sexy look.  You can recreate this same sentiment for your party with a smooth blowout and a few bobby pins.  Make sure to use a hair serum or oil to boost the shine on your hair, and add a little volume on top to keep the style from falling flat as the night goes on.
