Gear up for the holiday season with these party-perfect ideas!
Braids are so in, no matter the occasion. Try a crown braid over the top of your head that connects down to a low bun for a creative and sophisticated look. Plus, it’s the perfect style to last all day so you can transform from day to night.

You can easily dress a high bun up or down. This style is simple, yet so classy for a holiday party. Change it up for your many holiday parties by adding a sparkly hairpin.

Waves will add volume to any hair type and they look great with an LBD. Spice up your party attire with gorgeous, flowy waves or add loose curls to a high, sleek ponytail.

A deep red color is absolutely stunning for this time of year. Use a dark red temporary color (or even clip-in strands) on a few pieces of the underside of your hair. Then try pinning some of your hair back for a subtle, yet fabulous look.

Sparkle and shine this holiday season with an outfit that dazzles. Stand out from the crowd in holiday party dresses with beading, glitter, and metallic accents.

Glam up any style with some bling. Adding accessories to your hair will dress up any style. Try a glittery headband, a jeweled hair clip, or a festive hair tie.

Diamonds are a girls best friend! Statement necklaces or dangling earrings can add a lot to your holiday outfit. With an up-do, try a sparkling chandelier earring. Dress up a more simple neckline or outfit with a large, statement necklace. Try experimenting with different jewelry to make every party outfit unique.

During these cold winter nights, fur fits the bill. Try grabbing something faux-fur lined, like a scarf, gloves, or shawl. Look festive (and cozy) by draping a fur coat over your dress while traveling to and from your holiday parties.

Happy holidays to all from the StyleSeat team!
Celebrity hair stylist Jesse Montana of Beverly Hills, CA has worked in the beauty industry for six years and is currently a stylist for Jonathan and George Salon. He shared his best holiday tips with us for this festive season.
We asked: How do you jazz up a look for the holiday season?
"Schedule fresh color and cuts before the holiday accordingly. Holiday season books up fast, and there’s no better way to showcase your style than with a fresh cut. Freshly cut hair is the perfect foundation for long lasting holiday styles. Book a fun updo or style for all your holiday parties. There’s so many fun and festive ways to sprinkle in some holiday style that only a professional can do for you."
