As we enter the last few months of 2014, we also enter the biggest party season of the year. From cocktail parties, family gatherings, and work events, a different look and style is necessary. Eric, one of our hair stylists, shared some insight on holiday party hairstyles for every occasion this season.
Eric says that holiday party hair should strive for an “elevated level of elegance.” This look can be achieved through many techniques at different price ranges, making it easy to find the perfect holiday style. For example, a few strategically placed waves, or a great blow-dry can be a departure from your everyday style. A service such as this would cost about $35. Most importantly, subtle but impactful changes like adding some curls can be styled on short and long hair alike.
If you’re looking for something more dramatic, an up-do is a great option. When considering an up-do, “think of Hollywood red carpet styles, rather than a high school dance style,” Eric said. Up-do’s at Salon Nouveau range in price from $55-$75 and are great for holiday weddings or special occasions like New Year’s Eve.
Today’s trends are also influencing holiday party hairstyles. Braids are incredibly popular now and can be worked into almost any style. If you’re considering wearing your hair down, you could add a braided headband or side-braid for some flair. Braids can also be incorporated into an up-do as a way to visually pull the hair back from the sides, or even up from the bottom!
Still can’t decide? Try a classic look inspired by vintage hairstyles, commonly seen on celebrities such as Reese Witherspoon. Large buns, curls, and soft waves are characteristic of this style, which can easily compliment your holiday party outfits.
To add a final touch, Eric suggests a fantastic new product by Joico called Gold Dust. Gold Dust adds a gentle golden sparkle to hair, and can be used no matter the style or length of hair. Gold Dust is the perfect way to make your holiday hair festive and glamorous, without any permanent changes like cutting or dyeing.
