Updos for the Holidays

We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Can you believe that Christmas will be here before we know it?!

Christmas has us thinking about all of the different hair styles that are available. When you have a party to get ready for, for your company party or if you are going to a party hosted by friends, you want to look your best. There are so many hair styles to consider and play around with. If you feel comfortable curling and styling your hair, experiment with the following styles. However, if you prefer to have your hair stylist do it for you, you also have that option as well.

Half  Up and Half Down Updo

If you prefer to have some of your hair down in loose curls, consider the half up and half down hair do. Divide your hair into two sections. Taking the bottom section of your hair, divide it into smaller sections of about 1"-2" each. Curl each smaller section of hair until the entire layer of hair is curled.You can either lightly spray hairspray over your curled locks or leave them natural. They should hold in their curl.

Now it's time for the next step. With the top section of hair, you will be forming a bumped up hair look. To do this use bobby pins. Bobby pins effectively pin up the top section of your hair while forming the "bump." You now will have a chic hair updo that looks fabulous.

Messy Updo

If you're going for something a little bit messier but still want an updo, start pinning up your straight hair on different sections of your head. Play with your hair until you find the desired style.

Keep your hair straightener near by because you might want to straighten strands of hair here and there. Depending on the look you are after, you can have hair frame your face or have your hair pulled back more.

There are several other updo's to consider when you're planning on getting all dressed up for your party. If you feel like you can't conquer the style on your own, consider having a hair stylist do it for you. Or, if you have a friend who is familiar with updo's have them come over to your home and play with your hair. You never know what you may come up! Your hair is going to look fabulous this holiday season.
