For this season's holiday parties, it's all about volume and glam. The holidays are a great time to try something new & different with you hair, Sally Hershberger, the celebrity hair stylist who has salons in New York and Los Angeles, told Luxist what she believes are the best styles to wear during the holidays.
"Ponytails are an easy alternative to an up-do. They are so chic and easy to do at home---perfect for the holidays!," says Hershberger. "First, I like to use a root lifter in the hair like my Shape Up. It boosts the hair from the root and gives amazing texture and hold. Then, blow dry with a round brush to give hair insane volume and polish. Next, loosely pull your hair back and secure it into a ponytail- low or high. Spray Body Fix on the ponytail to give it texture and make it slightly edgy, or keep it smooth and shiny with Smooth Fix. I like to wrap a small piece of hair around the elastic and secure with a bobby pin."
"The chignon is one of my favorite looks for the holidays," says the celebrity hair stylist. "This style gives off an old Hollywood vibe that is elegant and easy to get at home. Prep your hair as you would a ponytail. I like to keep chignons low right now at the nape of the neck. Wrap the hair around the elastic and secure with pins. For a more polished look, spray Smooth Fix in the hair for a glossy finish. And for a fresher party style, pull some pieces out from around the face and spray a texturizer on the chignon."
