Styles for your tresses this holiday season

Holiday season is upon us! As you browse through those holiday party invitations, you may be thinking about what to wear, but you cannot forget your tresses. If you are the type to experiment with several new styles or if you simply just want to mix it up, there are a plenty of unique and fun hairstyles to create for each party this year.

Who said it had to be complicated?

You may not believe it, but those glossy perfect waves you have been drooling over can be yours! After blowing out your hair, take a large-barrel iron and curl. Then, brush through the spirals (gently!) and finish with hairspray to keep them in place.

If you want to go for that sophisticated-chic look of a blowout, separate the hair into different sections, and use a large round brush to blow your hair out straight. This will give the hair some texture. Don’t forget to flip the brush so the tips are curled oh-so-slightly.

The wonderful world of braids!

It seems as though you can add a braid onto any hairstyle and it will give that extra boost you were looking for. One braid that would look lovely with that festive red dress is the hairline braid. First, create piecey waves with a large barrel curling iron and some hairspray. Then, start a French braid at the side-part and stop just above the ear. Secure with an elastic or bobby pins and you are good to go!

If you are a pro at French braiding, the double duty braid is the style for you. Split your hair down the middle and create two French braids on each side. After both are complete, spin the remainder of the hair into a bun.

Half-up, half-down – I’m a fan all around!

There are tons of half-up and half-down inspired looks, but one of the best is the pinned back with texture curls. Start by blow drying hair without the help of a brush to make it easier to work with. Then, curl your hair to create some loose waves. Follow this up by backcombing the hair at the crown, and then pulling the hair back loosely, letting the face-framing pieces hang. This is a put together look that is also carefree and fun!
