When we say Christmas, it’s not obligatory to image complicated and quite hard to sport hairstyles. Forget about numerous hair styling tools and products, too profound skills and lots of time, and go instead for some easy party hairstyle ideas that look quite chic for any special occasion. Take a look at the simple tricks and tips presented below and draw inspiration for your breathtaking festive look!
It’s definitely easier to imagine various creative hairstyles, if you have long gorgeous locks. Don’t go for too complicated options, just use a simple curling iron and some hair spray and your marvelous look is ready in just a few minutes. You can sport messy or dressy waves with a subtle rock ‘n’ roll effect, or go for super-chic and glam curls, taking into consideration your style and preferences. To get the relaxed style, start wrapping random, sections of your tresses around the barrel with a curling iron. Shake it all up with your fingers and apply some hair spray to guarantee the long lasting fixation of you party hairstyle.
It’ll certainly be impressive to try the old Hollywood sophisticated look with some glossy, cascading waves. To get this effect, first apply some hold spray and start wrapping your hair sections around the curling iron. Make sure to pin into place each rolled section. Once your hair is cooled down, remove the pins and style your hair using a bristle brush. For the ultimate seductive allure, make a deep side parting. You can also get this effect by setting the parting in the center and finally applying some shine serum.
Make a show-stopping entrance with a mesmerizing Brigitte Bardot half updo. It’s extremely easy to obtain this look: just use some voluminising mousse and backcomb the hair at the top of your head. Brush the tomb layer carefully and apply some hold spray, loosely pulling back the upper part of your tresses. Finally secure it at the back with some pins or a precious hair comb. It’s equally interesting to try a lovely half updo. Make soft waves first and a small center parting. Afterwards, secure the hair in the back with a delicate hair pin, leaving a few face-framing flyaways, which will soften your look.
If you like to combine comfort with chicness, and don’t want to stray away from your timeless, versatile ponytail, you can still create a nice ‘do for special occasions. There are so many interesting ways to wear your ponytail. You can upgrade this style into an elegant, backcombed pony by taking a hair section and wrapping it around the pony’s base. If you want to really impress, try a side fishtail braid, adding a sexy vibe to your overall look. For a glossy effect, think a higher pony at the crown, finally creating a fishtail braid.
A loose bun with an embellished headband also looks incredible on special occasions. To get this hairstyle, make a tousled chignon and use a headband with chains, beads or crystals, this way boosting the chic touch in your look. Another option is taking two hair sections from either side of your head, braiding them and making a cute headband with them. Gather the rest of your hair in a bun and use some hold spray. For an elegant chignon, start curling your hair with a large-barrel curling iron and then sport the ‘do. It’s so fit for the holiday season and is also quite easy to do at home. You can also try a big and bold bun for a slightly undone elegance. Just add texture with a special spray and style it with your fingers.
Short hair also allows numerous interesting styling options for the holiday season. Go for the sleek, sexy version for sophisticated bobs, using a flat iron for an ultra-glam and soft effect. You can also try the voluminous style, which looks so feminine and chic and is sure to glam up any outfit. To get this result, start with a volume mousse all through the hair, and then turn to a curling iron to create delicate waves. Finish off your holiday hairstyle with a hairspray to ensure your lovely bob is into the place.
Whatever hairstyle you choose, don’t forget to pay attention to your party dress and style, making sure they look harmonious with each other.
