Chic and Casual Hairstyles for Parties

1. Face-framing lace braid

This simple but stylish hairstyle can jazz up a simple down ‘do.

Braids are charming ‘dos, and they’re also cute birthday hairstyles! And if you want something unique and creative on your special day, try the face-framing lace braid. Lace braiding is similar to French braiding, wherein you cross the right section over the middle section, then the left over the right, except you only add in small sections of hair to the right side as you go along, instead of to both sides. We can already imagine everyone asking you for a step-by-step tutorial!

Editor’s tip: Get your hair to cooperate by making sure it’s soft, smooth, and easy to style. We recommend washing it with Sunsilk Smooth & Manageable Shampoo to help control frizz so you can lace braid your hair with ease. It can even make your tresses smell fragrant!

2. Baby braid

This hairstyle also works on a lob or shoulder-length hair.

This hairstyle, also called peek-a-boo braid, is actually very simple but has quite an appeal. It’s also easy to create: just take a random section of hair and create a basic three-strand braid. You can take one or two sections—it’s completely up to you! It works on long or medium-length hair and can be a great look for a beach party.

3. Messy bob

Keep your lob or bob from looking flat by going for this messy look. There’s no hard and fast rule about how messy you can make your hair look. What’s great about this hairstyle is that it adds texture and body to your hair, making you look effortlessly chic for a daytime party.

Editor’s tip: Rock this look by spritzing TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray on your hair to keep it from looking flat.

4. Scarf braid

Here’s an easy, no-brainer way to upgrade your regular three-strand braid. Pick a bright-colored scarf, tie one end near the base of your ponytail and start plaiting like it’s part of your hair. Then use the other end of the scarf to secure the end of your braid. Voila! Say hello to a cute yet dramatic hairstyle.

5. Scarf bun

Take your scarf braid to the next level by creating a scarf bun out of it. Aside from parties, you can also wear this hairstyle at work to inject a summer element into your corporate attire. Keep the bun low so your hairstyle stays laidback.

6. Half ponytail
