Get your hair in the holiday spirit with these effortless party looks. Easy to dress up or down, they’re perfect for party-hopping and pair just as well with sequins as they do with your coziest knits. Bring on the eggnog and Mariah karaoke!

HALF-UP UPDO

Naughty and nice, this half-up look has a Brigitte Bardot feel.

Start by misting dry hair with Perfect Defense.

Next, curl hair with a 1-inch curling iron, alternating direction of curls to enhance texture.

Spray with Luminous Hairspray Medium to set, then comb through waves with a wide-tooth comb.

Separate top section of hair and lightly backcomb, leaving out front pieces on either side.

Smooth backcombed section and secure with a bobby pin.

Finally, pop on headband, covering with front pieces to blend into hair.

UNDONE PONY

This loose ponytail is just polished enough.

To start with extra volume, section hair. Use a blow dryer to heat each section, directing air flow away from the root, then curl each section inward and set the resulting roll with a clip. (Watch this tutorial to see this step in action—it sounds more complicated than it is.)

Separate top section of hair and backcomb, spraying with Luminous Hairspray Extra Strong to set. Clip up and out of the way.

Blouse bottom section of hair, spraying with Dry Texture Spray for maximum volume.

Unclip top section. Gather all hair into a loose ponytail and secure with a hair tie, leaving out strands along the hairline.

Wrap a piece of hair around tie to blend. Spray with Dry Texture Spray for finishing touch.

EASY PARTIAL TWIST

Let your curls shine with this super-easy style.

Apply 1-2 pumps of Moroccanoil Treatment along with 1-2 pumps of Smoothing Lotion for soft, moisturized curls.

Separate a section of hair above each ear, twist back, and secure with bobby pins. Done!
