The holidays are hard — if we don't get invited to parties, we're upset ("I thought so-and-so and I were closer than that!") and if we do get invited, we're upset ("What am I gonna do with my hair?!"). But, luckily, the latter issue is now far easier to solve than the former (although, surely your invitation was just lost in the mail, right?), all thanks to super-stylist Michael Dueñas.
Ever aware of our limitations in terms of time, ability, and patience when it comes to doing our hair, Dueñas showed us how to do a braided updo that looks way fancy and sexy. Watch as our assistant managing editor Sharon tries this party-ready style on for size — and earns herself a permanent place on our guest list.
