Glamming up for your Holiday Christmas Party

December is here and with it some of the best holiday parties begin to emerge, making for fun with family and friends, great food, and time to reflect back on the past year on all that has been accomplished, and what there is to be grateful.


Amidst all the good times and cheer comes a certain level of stress and planning. Whether you are having a holiday party in your home, or going elsewhere for the festivity, there are many things that need to be considered. Take these into account before starting out to save yourself the stress. Plan beforehand not only your outfit, but your hairstyle as well. You can find the most festive styles that will fit the feel of the party you are attending.


The outfit


Depending on the type of party you are attending, there are a few different options as far as outfits go. Find out beforehand if the party is casual or more formal. You don’t want to be the only one showing up dressed down, or far overdressed. If you are the one planning the party, be sure your guests are aware of what is expected of the dress.


Some Christmas parties focus more on clothing choices anyways, such as ugly sweater parties where the objective of the party is who can get the most outrageous sweaters. If not, choose something that is festive, yet fits in with the rest of the party. Choose the colors that fit, such as green, red, white, and gold.


Hair and makeup


The thing that will tie everything together comes from the way you style your hair, and the way your makeup is done. Depending on your style and how long your hair is, there are a few different options for you:


  • Soft curls are just what can get you into the holiday spirit. These are easy to do using a large barrel curling iron, and last long if done right.
  • Pull your hair back in a festive bun. This is easy to do and will keep your hair out of your face for the duration of the event.
  • Try using variations of braids in your hair to accentuate your style. You can incorporate these other styles in at the same time.


For whichever hairstyle you choose, select the makeup style that will accentuate it. For those who want to get the most out of their holiday style, come in to Taylor Andrews.
