Updos for a Timeless Look
Updos are the epitome of glamour and are perfect for those who want to make a striking statement at holiday events. With an updo, you can achieve a polished and refined look.
One popular option for an updo is the classic bun. This sleek hairstyle works well for both formal and informal settings. To add a modern twist, you can experiment with different variations, such as a high bun, a low bun or a side bun.
Another stunning option for an updo is the French twist. This hairstyle oozes sophistication and is perfect for those who want a sense of old-world charm. Gather your hair at the nape of your neck, twist it upward and secure it with bobby pins. Finish off with some hairspray to ensure it stays in place all night long.
For a more daring look, consider a braided updo. Not only are these elaborate & gorgeous, but they also give your entire appearance a boho feel. From fishtail braids to Dutch braids, there are endless options.
Elegant Waves for the Win
Consider styling your hair into soft, flowing waves to achieve a classy holiday hairstyle. This classic hairstyle adds a touch of romanticism to any ensemble. Whether looking for short hairstyles or hairdos for longer locks, creating elegant waves can take your look to the next level and make you feel like a true star.
To begin, ensure your hair is clean and dry before styling. To prevent heat styling tool damage to your hair, apply a heat protectant serum such as the Hair Protection Serum or the Intensive Hair Care Serum. Next, divide your hair into small sections to make it easier to work with. Wrap each part around the barrel of a curling iron or wand, holding it in place for a little while before letting go. This will create loose, natural-looking waves.
If you prefer a more relaxed and effortless look, you can also achieve waves by braiding your hair before bedtime. Simply braid your damp hair into two or more braids and fasten the ends with hair ties. Leave the braids overnight and unravel them in the morning to reveal beautiful waves.
By styling your hair into elegant waves, you'll create a classic vibe that pairs perfectly with any holiday outfit. The softness and femininity of this hairstyle will add a timeless charm to your overall appearance.
Sleek and Chic Ponytails for a Modern Twist
Ponytails are no longer just a casual hairstyle; they can be elevated to a sophisticated look that suits any festive occasion.
To create a sleek and chic ponytail, start by brushing your hair back and securing it at the desired height with a hair tie. For a sleek finish, smooth down any flyaways using a small amount of hair serum or the 100% Pure Argan Oil. This will ensure a polished look and prevent any frizz or unruly strands.
You can also opt for a low ponytail instead of a high one. To hide the hair tie in your party hairstyle, you can also wrap a tiny length of your hair over it.
Effortless Braids for a Bohemian Feel
Perfect for those who want a relaxed and carefree look, braided styles are some of the best hairstyles to try, guaranteed to elevate your holiday ensemble with a touch of boho flair.
Braids are all about embracing a more natural and undone hairstyle. Whether you opt for a loose fishtail braid, a boho crown braid or a simple side braid, these styles exude a sense of effortless charm that pairs perfectly with any holiday outfit.
One of the best things about braided hairstyles is their versatility. You can keep it simple with a single braid framing your face, or you can go for a more intricate look with multiple braids intertwined throughout your hair. Experiment with different braiding techniques and find the one that best suits your style.
Don't be afraid to embrace a slightly messy and undone look to complete the bohemian feel. Loosen a few strands of hair around your face to create a softer look. You can also gently pull apart sections of the braid to give it a more voluminous appearance.
Accessories to Elevate Your Party Hairstyles
One accessory to consider is a jewelled hairpin or clip. Whether you opt for a classic design or a more intricate embellishment, a jewelled hairpin can instantly transform your braids into a hairstyle fit for any holiday party.
If your style is more boho, try incorporating delicate hair chains or flowers into your braids. They can be woven through your braids for a whimsical effect.
Another accessory that can instantly elevate your hairstyle is a statement headband. Whether you opt for a bold, jewelled headband or a more subtle one with intricate detailing, a well-chosen headband can add a touch of drama and flair to your braids.
Lastly, you can add a flower crown or hair comb. Choose a flower crown with lush blooms or go for a hair comb with crystal accents for glamour.
Tips for Lasting Party-Ready Hairstyles
Having the perfect holiday hairstyle isn’t just about finding and mastering the right hairdo. Prepping your hair beforehand will ensure a better look without compromising your hair’s health. Here are a few things you can do to prep yourself:
- Start with clean hair: Before you even begin styling your hair, it's crucial to prep it properly. Cleanse and condition your hair using products that suit your hair type. Take iluvia’s 3-wash challenge to know which products suit you best.
- Shield your hair from heat: From blow-drying to flat irons, getting the perfect hairdo for a party most likely involves using heat styling tools. While it’s well-known that these tools damage the hair, you can protect it by using a serum that protects from heat damage – the Intensive Hair Care Serum for thin, limp hair or the Hair Protection Serum for heavy, coarse hair.
- Don't forget about hairpins: Hairpins are not just for securing updos – they can be your secret weapon for keeping any hairstyle intact. After styling your hair, use hairpins to anchor the sections together and prevent any loose strands from escaping. When inserting hairpins, cross them over each other in an X-shape for extra security.
- Plan for touch-ups: Despite all your efforts, some hairstyles may require a little extra attention as the night goes on. Pack a compact mirror and a few extra bobby pins in your purse for quick touch-ups if needed. This way, you can effortlessly maintain your party hairstyle without missing any fun.
- Think about aftercare: Once the night has ended, it’s important to wash out any product you may have used so it doesn’t dry out your hair further and cause breakage and frizz. Wash your hair with gentle hair care products that will not only cleanse your hair but continue to protect it, such as the Pro Maintenance System.
