Party-ready hairstyles with all the flash and none of the fuss
We know the holiday season is fun and festive, yet also demanding and hectic. And through it all, circumstances call for us to look our best. A party here, a gathering there; seeing family, friends – both old and new, etc. Here are a few party-ready, glam-ready hairstyles that I know you can do with little effort… yet, all of the elegance.
I see short, textured hair with a decorative clip as a perfect, polished, holiday look. Go straight from work to an office party or drinks. The trick is to aim for a “pieced out” look with lots of separation. Use a flexible, grooming paste to provide separation. Rub a little between your hands and use your fingers to piece out the ends of your hair. Add in a festive clip with rhinestones, pearls, or feathers to make it pop! Another fashion-forward style I recommend is loose, sexy, hollywood waves. Before heading off to work, mist your hair with a flexible, holding hairspray. Pretend you are going to pull your hair back into a ponytail; but instead, twist it until it spirals toward the scalp. Gather your hair into a loose bun and secure it with hairpins. At day’s end, simply undo the hairpins and scrunch a little body-building, texturizing paste into your hair, and you’re ready to party.
A modern chignon is also on trend. My take here is that hair styles better when not freshly shampooed. Use a dry shampoo, like Tela Beauty Organics Dri, in the morning and brush it through your hair. Next, pull your hair off your face and gather into a low ponytail. At the end of your work day, mist the ponytail with the same dry shampoo, and dry-scrunch it through your hair for texture. Work the ponytail into a low bun and secure it with hairpins. Be sure to leave a few pieces sticking out here and there! Finally, you can get my Venexianna’s NYC Fashion Show crimp-your-style look! Pull your hair into a ponytail and pull out a veil of hair along the front of your hairline, ending at the top of your ears. Crimp-iron the veiled area, misting as you go with a product designed to protect your hair and hold the crimped texture. P2 Purely Professional RefresHair does the trick. Twist your ponytail down to create a bun. Secure the bun with hairpins and pull a few pieces of the crimped veil for a messy, sexy style.
