Holiday Hair: 3 Party-Perfect 'Dos.


The holiday season is in full swing which means party invitations are sure to follow. Every girl panics about what she's going to wear and how to do her hair - but don't worry lovelies, I got you covered. These ultra fab hairstyles courtesy of Total Beauty are sure to be a hit at your next party. So glam!

Claire Danes
Follow these steps to master Danes' classic updo:

Step 1: Apply blow dry lotion (try Shu Uemura Art of Hair Satin Design White Tea Polishing Milk, $30) to wet hair then blow dry your strands section by section with a round brush for a shiny, smooth finish. Create a side part.

Step 2: Loosely curl the ends of your hair (from mid-shaft down) with a medium-sized curling iron held vertically.

Step 3: Start gathering your curls to the back of your head (leaving a few face-framing layers free) and begin securing them with bobby pins. Pin all of your hair up into a chignon-like shape. Continue adding bobby pins until the style feels tight and secure. Set with hairspray (try Dove Flexible Hold Aerosol Hairspray with Natural Movement, $4.29).

Kate Beckinsale
Create Beckinsale's chic bun with these steps: 

Step 1: Start by backcombing the front of your hair. Spritz volumizing spray like, Frederic Fekkai Full Volume Instant Root Lifting Spray, $20 on each section before teasing to get mega lift. Leave a half-inch of hair in the front hanging, and once you're done teasing, smooth that front layer over the teased area to hide it.

Step 2: Secure hair into a slick, mid-height ponytail.

Step 3: Brush the tail, spritz it with styling spray (try Bumble and bumble Spray de Mode, $25) and twist it tightly then secure it into a ballerina-like bun.

Lucy Liu
Follow these easy steps to recreate Liu's glam, curled pony: 

Step 1: Apply a combo of shine serum (try Ken Paves Shine Serum, $30) and blow dry lotion (try Redken Satinwear 02 Ultimate Blow-Dry Lotion, $19.21) on wet hair, then blow dry hair straight.

Step 2: Curl the mid-shaft to the ends of your hair with a medium-sized curling iron held vertically. Mist with hairspray for hold (try Aveda Air Control Hairspray, $24).

Step 3: Finger comb your curls and secure them into an off-center low ponytail. Flip your tail onto your shoulder so it's visible from the front.
Step 4: Pull out a few face-framing pieces to add softness to the look.
