Party dresses are all well and good but if your barnet looks like a beehive on a bad day then all that dress up effort will have gone to waste. After all, when you're sat at the table, waist up is the only thing people will notice. So get your Christmas hair right and you'll be rocking those festive PJ's without a care in the world.
Upgrade your bun with a bow or slip in a couple of sparkly bobby pins to an up do, there's never been a better time to opt for a statement hair accessory. If you can't get away with it at this time of year, then...you can't get away with it.
OH, HALO PLAITS
The best option for those who don't like to look too groomed. A halo plait actually looks better if it's messed up and teased out a little, so start by prepping the hair with a texturising spray then plait away and pin up. Pull on small sections of your finished plaits to loosen it up and avoid the strictly Sound of Music.
Wearing a high neckline? Go for a high ponytail to show off those cheekbones. Rocking something a little loose and fun? Go for a half-pony with a loose wave. Low-back dress? You cheeky minx! A sleek side part or centre parting and comb into a chic low pony.
If you haven't had time to wash your hair ahead of your big Christmas event, a tousled bun is your best choice. Liven up your locks with a little dry shampoo then wrap it all up into a high, medium or low bun and fix with a few grips. The secret to keeping it looking undone is to do as little as possible with your hair. Keep everything to a minimum, including product and bobby pins.
