December is a month where you are busier than ever and your social calendar is booked. Friends and family are throwing ugly sweater parties left and right and your fancy work holiday bash is just around the corner. With everyone having instant access to a camera on their phone, there is no doubt that you want your look to be on point during the holiday festivities and that includes your hair. Let’s be honest, the winter climate isn’t exactly friendly to our locks. Low humidity paired with the elements in the form of snow and rain, can really make our hair look lackluster at best. When preparing for your next holiday party, here are a few tips to consider for getting a great look for your hair.
Keep Your Hair Healthy
When you want to get great holiday hair to rock at a party you want to make sure that your hair is healthy. To help with dry, winter hair many stylists recommend using a type of hair mask. Nikki Lee, celebrity hair stylist to clients such as Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez, recommends using a deep conditioning mask once a week. There are also ways to get your hair healthy right in your kitchen. Try covering your tresses in olive oil, egg yolk, or even avocado to heal dry hair. Healthy hair is sure to be the centerpiece of your look at any holiday party.
Get A Great Updo
The downside to attending parties this time of year is Mother Nature herself. Your hair plans can easily be foiled by a winter weather advisory or a snow storm. You may have planned on rocking the perfect blowout, but braving the elements such as rain and snow could ruin your look. The answer is simple. Go with an updo! Try putting your hair in braids for a festive and funky look. Goddess braids, fishtail braids and French braids all provide a classy way to display your locks. Buns are also worth rocking and a great way to complete any outfit.
Work A Cute Hat
If you are in the mood to really make a statement, you may want to opt for a hat. Just remember to take into consideration a few things before choosing a hat for your holiday party. June Ambrose, a stylist for clients like Justin Timberlake and Jay Z, advises taking into consideration many things when choosing the right hat like looking at the scale of your face and the size of the brim. Wearing a hat can be a great way to give your hair a little flair, or cover it if your locks are hard to tame the day of your holiday function.
Hopefully, a few of these tips will help you achieve the perfect look for your hair at all of the parties you attend this holiday season.
