Updos Add elegance

Want an elegant style that keeps your hair out of the way for mingling and dancing? An updo is a classic yet dazzling option for your Christmas party.

  • Try a twisted chignon at the nape of your neck for understated glamour. Finish with a glitter hairspray for subtle sparkle.
  • Braided updos remain a favourite. Go for an intricate lace braid wrapped into a low bun for romantic flair.
  • For drama, sweep hair into a sleek high ponytail. Upgrade it by teasing the tail and lightly backcombing the crown.

Updos suit both long and short hair. So let your inner bella bunhead run free with a graceful upstyle.

Half-Up, Half-Down Do's are Versatile

The best of both worlds - half-up, half-down 'dos allow you to highlight your gorgeous locks while keeping some hair down. The style also enables you to show off statement earrings.

  • Create a braided crown by plaiting front sections and joining them in the back. Let the rest fall freely.
  • Gather and pin up top layers, forming a pompadour-like bump. Boost volume with some backcombing.
  • For textured hair, twist random pieces into miniature buns all over your head. Effortlessly eye-catching!

Half-up styles transition beautifully from day to night. Easy, breezy - and party perfect!

Low Buns and Chignons Bring Back Old Hollywood Allure

Channel your inner starlet with a glamorous low bun or chignon. Positioning it at the nape of your neck creates a graceful, leading-lady effect. Go sleek or messy - either way, Old Hollywood waves are sublimely chic.

  • Create a chic chignon by twisting hair into a knot and securing with pins. For softer framing, leave out some face-framing tendrils.
  • Try a sideways low bun. Part hair dramatically, sweep it to one shoulder and twist into a loose, low style.
  • For loads of drama, spritz waves with hairspray and loosely roll into a bun at the base of your neck. It's relaxed yet ravishing.

Fine hair? Enhance volume with some backcombing first. Show off your neckline with these sublime retro buns.

Half-Down Curls Mix Stylish and Sexy

Blending curled down locks with a partially pinned-up style creates jaw-dropping texture and dimension. It's an alluring twist on traditional party hair.

  • Create tight ringlets on mid-lengths and ends with a curling wand. Pull up one side with jewelled pins. Gorgeous.
  • For relaxed yet bombshell waves, spritz lengths with sea salt spray and scrunch. Sweep one side up high with a pretty clip. Va va voom!
  • If you're hair isn't naturally curly, roll large sections into pincurls as you dry. Take out for bouncy half-up hair.

This hairstyle oozes effortless beauty and charm. Make it your go-to for instant glam this season.

Slick Back a Sleek Ponytail

For a polished, elegant take on the classic ponytail, try slicking back hair for a smooth, sculpted shape. It lengthens the neck and highlights your gorgeous bone structure.

  • Apply a smoothing hair gel to control flyaways and achieve a super slick look. Brush hair straight back and gather into a low pony, securing with an elastic.
  • For volume, backcomb the ponytail base before sweeping up. Twist slightly before wrapping the elastic.
  • upgrade your slicked pony with a fishtail or waterfall braid woven into the length.

This tightly pulled style makes a real statement. Amp up the glam factor with bold chandelier earrings and a striking red lip. Sleek ponytails are sublimely chic and so versatile.

So whether you fancy an ornate updo or bombshell waves, there's a Christmas party style for you. Amp up the allure with shimmery makeup and standout accessories. And let your holiday hair shine bright all season long!
