December has arrived, which means the next few weeks will consist of gift giving, tree trimming and our favorite part of the holiday season—parties. As we inch closer to the New Year, it’s time to revel in milestones; another year at the job, 365 more days with your significant other or another grueling college semester. So, when invitations to office celebrations and ugly Christmas sweater parties hit your inbox, be sure to RSVP! While you may feel compelled to let your hair down, updos are actually the perfect party-proof hairstyle. With your hair out of the way, you can dance and not worry about your hair falling flat and sneak a kiss underneath the mistletoe without having to pluck strands from your lip gloss. From braided crowns to top knots, the possibilities are literally endless. Skip the drama of unruly hair and rock one of these celeb-inspired updos for your holiday mixer.
