The holiday party invites are starting to pour in which means it's time to step up your hair game! Don't worry, we've done most of the hard work for you. Just take a look at some of these hairstyles celebrities have been rockin' on the red carpets to get some ideas.
One of the easiest ways to get party ready? Throw your hair into a high ponytail! Beyonce rocks it best here by pairing hers with a strapless dress.
Keep it simple by pulling back your hair and showcasing thick, blunt bangs like Kerry Washington’s.
An easy way to instant glamour? Slick back your hair with a hair gel and add in a front side part like Jennifer Hudson’s.
If you have a cropped ‘do (like Halle Berry’s) use a matte hair paste to pull hair in different directions for a chic, spiked look.
Have fun playing with hair color (like Mary J. Blige) and lighten up the front part of darkly colored hair with a hint of blonde.
The layered look is in and Keri Hilson rocks it oh so well! Consult with your hairstylist and ask about adding in some funky layers to your ’do.
Pump up the volume in your hair by slicking back the sides and teasing the top part (like Paula Patton’s) for an edgy, urban look.
Another option to rock your part is to put it right in the middle (like Ciara’s) and slick hair back into a ponytail.
Don’t feel like slicking back all of your hair? Take a cue from Sanaa Lathan and let your curls hang on one side and pull the rest back for a sophisticated, glamorous look.
A simple bob can go a long way! Taraji P. Henson opts for easy glamour with this cropped bob ’do.
