How to Create a Quick & Easy Holiday Party Hairstyle

Step 1

Refresh your hair with dry shampoo.

Spray Dove Detox & Purify Dry Shampoo throughout your hair, focusing on the roots to soak up excess oil as you refresh your second or third-day hair.

Step 2

Part and separate your hair.

Create a side part on the right side of your face. Then create another part on the side of your hair to separate a section of your hair. Repeat the same steps on the opposite side of your hair then clip up each section while you style the back of your hair.

Tease and create a low bun.

Separate the back section of your hair in half and tease your hair to create some volume. After teasing, gather your hair into a low bun.
