Haven't washed your hair this week? We know: Life gets hectic over the holidays. Luckily, all you need is a round brush, some shine serum, and a spritz of hairspray to tame fly-aways and you'll be the belle of the ball once again. This sleek bun is perfect if you're running late to a Friday night dinner party.
Casual French Twist
This easy-to-do chignon is girly and pretty. Pros: It's great for a low-back dress, it takes under five minutes to complete, and it'll still look good if you get caught in the rain. Cons: It won't take long for your BFF to rush to a mirror and steal your look!
A little curling, a lot of teasing, and voila! Nothing says sexy like big, voluminous hair. Save this show-stopping 'do for New Year's Eve and play up the sex appeal with dangly earrings and a chic body-con dress.
Channel 1970s glam, and spice up even the simplest party dress by parting pin-straight hair down the middle and wearing a shimmery, lacy headband to a festive event, like your city's tree lighting ceremony.The best fashion moments of 2011
Here at Marie Claire, we go ga-ga for braids! Although this hairstyle takes some time (and a lot of skill), we're loving the crown-to-ear fishtail plaits that end in one big (can we call it a low-knot?) bun. A swanky Christmas party would be the perfect place to rock this hair.
