With all the festivities between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve, the party season is on! As with any occasion, you want to look your best! So, what are the best men's hairstyles for these warm and festive celebrations? Have a look at our suggestions and see what you think...

Whether you need something family occasion or a party with friends, there's a look that might just be a perfect fit.

Short Side Part

For an impressive, ultra-smart look, go for a sleek side part. This works really well if your hair is quite short or a little longer. After working some putty into your hair, create a side part on whichever side your hair parts naturally and then sweep your fringe over, making it longer on one side than the other. Comb afterwards for a really sleek look, or, if you want a more textured look, tousle slightly with your fingers.

Messy Flick

For a slightly more casual look, try a messy flick. This works well with a side part, but a center part is also fine. Brush your hair away from your face, and using a small amount of putty, create a flick at the front. You could make it really neat and sculpted, or you could create a messier look by tousling.

For Curly Hair

If you have curly hair, you could try creating a stylish side parting, then letting your curls do the rest. To keep it looking neat, use some deconstructing gum at the front to tame any wild locks. This also stops your hair falling across your eyes.

All of these looks work really well for any holiday occasion, whether you're heading out with friends or to your parents' house and they're all pretty simple to achieve. Just call it a little stocking stuffer from us!
