Party Hair Ideas 2013

Holiday & Party Hairstyles
Inspiration Ideas 2013

We've already seen a few good party dress ideas last week, so it's only appropriate that we find the perfect hairstyle to match. Formal and fussy or laid-back and relaxed, what ever the holiday event you're attending, these runway and celebrity hair ideas will surely inspire you to try something new with your tresses.

Ways with Braids
Braids have been massively popular this year from the runway to the red carpet, seen styled in innumerable ways. Lucy Hale and Alberta Ferretti models wore loosely plaited ponytails, whilst Selena Gomez went edgy with an elevated braid. Wear a romantic braided crown (seen at Rebecca Minkoff) or go goth like Cara Delevingne did with a braided undercut. TV Presenter Maria Menounos showed off a textured mermaid braid.


Elegant Updos
 For those more formal affairs, you can't go wrong with a classic pulled black chignon, French twist or slightly messy bun. An asymmetrical fringe will beautifully compliment this style.


The Faux Bob
Shorten your locks without cutting it off by trying out the uber trendy Faux Bob. Curl sections of your hair with a curling iron, then fasten and tuck inwards towards the nape of your neck with bobby pins. Leave a few strands loose in the front to soften this pretty look.


Plaited Upstyles
Incorporating a plait into your usual upstyle will add a playful party spin.


Half-up Half Down
 If you have naturally wavy hair, the easiest way to add some glamour is with a half up, half down hairstyle. Gather a few strands from the front of your head and either braid it, twist it or pull it back in a pompadour. Let the rest of your locks fall loose in ravishing waves.


The Finer Details
Vivify your normal style with interesting hair accessories. At Marchesa, models were given a fringed finish with feathered clips. Alexis Mabille went retro with beehives and satin bands. Y-3 presented uncombed folksy locks with a side braid and neon rainbow feather. Plait a bright ribbon into your braid seen at Calla. Cover up uncompromising hair with a very trendy veiled beanie a la Jil Sander. Or add a contrast coloured strand for a grungy look as Libertine did.


Straight Forward
 To get your hair this sleek and perfectly straight, smoothen down with a flat iron, using a heating spray before hand and a good serum or shine spray after.


Hair Gems
Ornament your tresses with a range of beautiful hair jewels, floral clips and crowns or try ornate crystal brooches for a vintage effect.


Which of these Holiday Hairstyles will you be trying out?

Morning Sam! Thanks for the hair inspiration, I was just looking for some ideas for holidays. Actually, I used to leave my hair loose, the only hairstyles I usually do are the side braid or a high knot. Wish I was good to recreate something more complicated but my hair is thin and not easy to style. All the hairdos are wonderful, the first and the second are my fav, as well as the straight ones. Kisses dear, have a good day! xo

Serena Macari said...

Love all of these Sam!
I wish I was good at doing my hair.. I can barely do a basic braid and have been trying to learn how to do a fishtail for years! haha

Katie said...

This came just in time! I have a christmas ball tomorrow and I need some kind of cool hairstyle for it... I regularly do a Jessica Chastain style half-up-half down (either twisted or plaited) but I'm eager to try out some braided hairstyles! Thanks for this informative and useful post xx

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

Lovely hair inspirations Sam! Sometimes I wish I had long hair when I see all these swishy updos but I do love the ease of my angled bob. I think I'll probably be wearing a glitzy headband for the holidays.

Ooo Sam, so many beautiful hair-do's! I always try to be a little more creative with my hair over Christmas but annoyingly I have no patience when it comes to styling my hair. I adore the braided styles and I love the idea of adding something sparkly to my hair, like in the last selection :)

Take care,
Daniella xox

Dear Sam, as I´m always looking for new hairstyles (and finally wear my hair mostly a longer time in the same hairstyle if I´m satisfy with one) I´m excited about this post! I think I will try a faux bob, because this is absolutely other than the hairstyles which I wear normally :)

Thanks for your huge effort again!
