Short hair can be styled in various ways to be party ready; Short Curls can be achieved with a curling iron and hairspray; A Half-Up Party Lob is easy to do by twisting and pinning a few strands of your hair from the front of your face back over the crown area allowing your bangs and the back of your hair to fall freely; A French Braid With A Top Knot can be done in a similar manner by braiding the top of your hair and allowing the end to be looped in the hair band creating a mini bun. A Messy Bouffant With A Low Bun creates volume over your crown area and is held back neatly into a low bun which is easily achieved by sectioning your hair and styling it separately. The Sexy Mohawk look is if you have very short hair or a pixie cut, this can be a dramatic party-ready look which also looks very chic in the day.

Updos for long hair for the party season:

Long hair is easy to style and can be worn in so many different ways to suit your outfit or your mood. The Long Wavy Hairstyle allows your hair to create volume around your face; The Bouffant Ponytail, gives the regular ponytail look an elevated style by simply pulling back a top section of hair from your crown and backcombing it before fixing the rest of your hair into a high ponytail; The Braided Bun is better achieved if you have long thick tresses and since most of the artwork is at the back of your head, it is recommended to let someone do it for you so you can get neat braids that are twisted together and pinned into a bun. The Textured Half-Up style can be very chic and classy when done right, style your hair into loose curls and pin up a few strands over your crown area allowing the rest of the curls to open out and cascade down over your shoulders. The Large Crown Braid with a Ponytail is loud and funky, you can try this slightly messy style by braiding the top of your hair and tying the rest of it in a long, voluminous ponytail.

Updos for wavy hair for the party season:

If you love your big curls then use some styling products to lock in lustre and shine for best results, but if you want to try something different with your long hair there are quite a few styles that you should try for this party season; like the Messy Up-Do that doesn’t look too flashy, using a curling iron create loose waves and then pin them back with pins to hold it in place, careful not to pull them all the way back so they can remain loose and messy. A Side Fishtail Braid can look complicated to achieve but it’s definitely worth it and it’s actually not difficult to master, after braiding your hair towards the side of your face leave a little of your hair a little tousled. A High-Volume Ponytail is definitely a party favourite and will complete your high-fashion look. A Pinned Back Retro Glam look also takes your style up a notch by using an antique hair clip to pin up the hair from one side of your face, letting it cascade over the other side.
