Holiday party season is officially upon us, which means your calendar is probably starting to look like the social-event version of Hoarders. Did you really need to say yes to three parties in one night? Who the hell is Steve and why are you going to his “Rockin’ Ugly Sweater Bash”? We can’t help you with the mystery of Steve and his hideous knitwear, but we can help you figure out how you’re going to do your hair for these myriad merrymaking sessions.
Since you’ll be seeing a lot of the same faces as you make the rounds, you probably don’t want to do the exact same 'do at each fete. It'll be deck the halls déjà vu, if you will. Not to mention the fact that your ponytail is going to get pretty tiresome about four days into this marathon of celebrating, trust. That’s why we’ve rounded up some of the coolest, chicest coiffs to help you get into the festive spirit with panache.
In this epic guide, you’ll find seven stunning styles — one for every day of the week! — plus the step-by-step, pro advice to pull them off. Party beauty drama = solved. You’re on your own for the sleep deprivation, hors d’oeuvres overdose, and monster hangover, though.
