10 Christmas Party Hairstyles
1. An Extra Dose of Volume
Elevate a classic updo by giving it an extra dose of volume as you create your style. Use a teasing comb to backcomb the hair at your crown to create a bouffant-style as the base for your updo. Then, gather your strands back and tie them into a low bun to finish off the look. This is one of our favorite hairstyles for a Christmas party because it’s both elegant and playful at the same time.
2. Sleek and Straight
Give your straight hair a sleek and shiny finish by combing hair oil into the lower half. We love using Love Beauty and Planet Hope and Repair Coconut Oil & Ylang Ylang 3-in-1 Benefit Oil to add softness and manageability to our strands for easy styling and sleek results.
3. A Throwback Style
Pin retro curls up into a low updo for a bold and impactful throwback style. Be sure to finish off your style with a mist of TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Extend Hold Level 4 to keep the look in place all night long.
4. The Easiest Waves
The best Christmas party hairstyles are ones that you can create in 5 minutes or less. Saving more time on your hair means spending more time enjoying your family, right? Create these easy waves by using your hair straightener to create super easy flat iron curls. Leave them product-free so they fall out into an easy and loose texture.
5. Faux Natural Curls
Give off the illusion of natural curls by using a 1-inch curling iron to create curls that twirl in alternating directions. You can wear these curls down, use them as a base for a more intricate braided hairstyle, or pin them up into an easy updo.
6. Amp Up the Volume
Use your hair brush to revamp classic curling iron curls and create loads of volume. The more you brush out your curls, the bigger the style will be.
7. The Side Part
An easy way to revamp your style in just a few seconds is by changing your part to the opposite side. By flipping your hair over to the other side, you give your style a totally different look while simultaneously achieving major volume.
8. Let Loose
Wear your wavy strands long and loose for a easygoing and laid-back style that works for everything from a family dinner to a late night with friends.
9. Highlight Your Curls
Give your curls extra definition by combing Dove Style+Care Curls Defining Mousse through your strands while they’re still damp from your shower. This mousse ensures that your curls dry smoothly with extra definition.
10. Perfectly Styled
This textured lob is easy to create and will score you major points in the hair trend department. Use a large barreled curling wand to create oversized curls and be sure to create them in alternating directions to maintain a messy and textured vibe.
