Holiday hairstyles for the multi-tasker…
If you’re the kind of woman who’s always got a dozen different things going on at once, you may appreciate a holiday hairstyle that allows you to focus on another element of your prep at the same time. Have you tried hot rollers? Great for hair that takes to curls and manageable with products for hair that sometimes resists them, this helpful styling appliance even clues you in when curlers are ready to be applied and when they can be removed. While your curls are setting, apply your eye makeup, perfume, jewelry and other fancy holiday accessories.

Holiday hairstyles for the glamour girl…
If you’ve got time to spare, you can really enjoy the full experience of getting dolled up! Whether you prefer cascading curls, soft waves or shiny and straight hair, your evening outfit will be complete once you adjust the finishing touches on your tresses. Consider a head full of spiraling curls, accented by a few silver hairclips. Dress up a traditionally straight style with micro-braids and festive little barrettes or hair accessories. Weave miniature flowers or tiny ribbons in a perfect French braid, allowing a few strands to sneak out and rest against the back of your neck. Finally, you can twist and pin your hair up with a large hairpin and curl the locks that spill out from the twist. If you select this style, use additional bobby pins to fasten the twist securely to your head.

Holiday hairstyles for the chic pixie…
If a shorter style is the name of the game, this holiday season you’ll be anything but lame. Arm yourself with some styling products, especially a good gel and mousse. For a flirty look, apply gel and work some of your short locks into curly sections and pin them wildly about your head. This look will be nicely accented by your choice of makeup, especially around the eyes. You can also use a styling product by itself to encourage your own curls or waves to come out to play for the evening. Experiment with straight styles and curly styles, and both straight and zigzag parts.

Holiday hairstyles for the last-minute lovely…
If you’ve only got a few moments to spare, simplicity will be your best friend. If your hair responds well to blow-drying, consider getting sassy with a zigzag part. After washing your hair, dry it straight. Take a comb and trace a zigzag from your forehead back. Brush your tresses as you normally would, being especially careful not to disturb your new part. Adorn your sleek style with a delicate yet fancy hair clip. Better yet if you can find one to match your outfit.

Once the primping process concludes, kick back, relax and prepare to have the time of your life. No matter which style you choose, step outside with confidence and realize that you are the spark that lights up the party.
