  • Wavy hair is always a winning hairstyle

The holiday season is upon us, and it's time to start planning outfits and hairstyles. There's no need to worry though, as we have you covered! Take a look at our selection of party hairstyles and see what you think would suit you best.

The Fishtail Braid

This is a classic look which is elegant and festive. Start by dividing your hair into two sections, then take a thin section from the outer edge of the left side and weave it over the left section and under the right section. Repeat on the right side – take a thin section from the outer edge of the right section, pull it over the right side and weave under the left side. Continue in this fashion until you reach the bottom of your hair. For an ultra-neat look, pull the sections tightly. If you want a softer look, keep the weaving slightly looser.

The chic Ponytail

This is a favorite of the stars and is so easy to do! For extra elegance, create some soft waves first by curling your hair loosely around your curling irons. Leave a small section of hair loose on one side, then tie your hair in a ponytail and secure with a hair elastic. Wrap the loose section around the elastic to hide it and secure by pulling the end under the elastic. Stylish and oh-so-simple!

The Wavy Look

If you'd like a beautiful and elegant look which doesn't involve tying your hair back, try this gorgeous wavy style. Separate your hair into small sections, then wrap these sections loosely around your hair straighteners or curling tongs, then let them loose. Once you've done every section, give your hair a shake, and use some strong-hold hairspray to help the waves last even longer.
