The perfect party dress, the sexy heel, the red lip. An entrance-making holiday look involves a few moving parts. Here is a little inspiration for your mane, whether you bring to your stylist or try on your own (you brave soul, you).
SHORT AND TOUSLED Use a clip-less curling wand to frame loose waves around your face. (And keep curls crease-free while doing your makeup with our handy little trick.)
A SWEET SIDE BRAIDPull back one side with a horizontal French braid to showcase your smoky eye.
A TEASED PONYTAILMake your pony a conversation starter by teasing, curling and adding about a half a can of hairspray.
A BRAIDED TOP KNOTFor a more traditional updo, take this pic to your local stylist. They'll be able to braid around your ballerina bun.
A HIGH HALF-BUNThat trendy half-bun you’ve been eying? Now’s your time to shine.
A LOW HALF-BUNBut if you're not ready to fully commit just yet, try a half-bun back on the crown of your head.
AN “ELSA” BRAIDChunky side braids are dreamy wherever you are. (But a Parisian backdrop never hurts.)
A TIGHT CROWN BRAIDA Scandinavian-inspired crown never gets old.
A SLEEK CHIGNONNor does a sophisticated low bun.
AN ADDED BOWNo matter your age, a satin ribbon is basically instant holiday cheer.
A LOOSE HALF-BACK BRAIDThis is another one of those styles you could perfect by watching hours of YouTube...or by just asking your stylist.
A SLICKED-BACK PIXIEGo '80s glam--in the very best way.
A VOLUMIZED POMPADOURFor a little more height, tease the front section into a bouffant and set with hairspray.
A MESSY TWISTHey, curly ladies. Twist sections of hair in a somewhat haphazard way and secure with bobby pins. The result is surprisingly chic.
