Best Hairstyles for Holiday Parties

You waited all year long for the chance to mix, mingle and be merry at the annual holiday bash. You snagged the perfect party dress with just the right amount of sparkle; your makeup and nails set the tone of fabulously festive… but – what “do” is the right one to complete your holiday ensemble? If you’re looking for inspiration to make your crowning glory the perfect accessory to your holiday look, you’re in luck! We’ve got some of hottest holiday hairstyles decking halls everywhere this season!

Go big or go home – Channel your inner glamour this holiday season with a retro, voluminous style that feels classic, yet modern all at the same time! Elevate your volume to new heights by teasing the top into a beautiful – circa 1960’s bouffant. Accessorize with a sparkly headband pushing the front of the hair up and back.

Feel like roaring a little? Roaring 20’s that is. Hair cropped fairly short, parted on the side or down the middle and styled into flapper waves is another vintage look that just seems to mesh with the holidays! Top off this super cute look with berry-red lips that are bursting with holiday magic!

On the fringe of holiday spirit – Sweet, wispy fringe across the forehead makes the eyes pop and heads turn! If you think bangs can’t be dressy enough for a holiday bash, think again! Pair your wispy bangs with a half up, half down style for a little romantic holiday flair.

A holiday hairstyle with a twist – Yes, literally! A classic French twist is elegantly practical. To get this look, pin the hair into 3 sections from the top of your head to the nape of your neck. Twist the middle section up and secure with a bobby pin. Follow by twisting the bottom section into the middle, again securing with a bobby pin, before taking the top section and twisting it over the middle and bottom sections. Twist again and lock it down with more pins.

The holiday season marks the closing of another chapter as we cruise into the new year. So, why not mark the occasion with an unforgettable look? If you like the sound of creating signature looks on holidays and every other day – you might be the perfect candidate for a career in cosmetology!
