The term "party hair" has a bad rep. You instantly think of elaborate, intricate styles that require more than one pair of hands; Brigitte Bardot-esqe volume that reminds you of prom (not
the best-looking time in your life); or perfectly coiffed styles that can't be mussed with. That’s why overly complicated 'dos have never been our game plan — even when faced with, well, a party.
So, we're always on the hunt for easy hairstyles that look
like they took longer than our everyday top knot without requiring
us to clock in an hour teasing. And, we're here to report that we've found them.
From a pinned-back 'do for your low-key office party to a decked-out bun that resembles the New Year's ball itself, these four festive styles are modern, sleek, and (best of all) easy to do. All you need are hairstylist Marc Mena
's easy steps ahead and a few Fekkai
must-haves. You'll never look at party hair the same again.
