The best updos for every holiday occasion

As department stores roll out their ornament-adorned garland and holiday sale signs, it's time to think about how you're going to decorate - your hair, not your house - this festive season. When picking out your ensembles for your slew of holiday-themed parties, consider these various beauty trends: 

For a family affair
Just because you're hanging out with all your great-aunts and uncles doesn't mean you can't have a bit of fun with your hairstyle. When attending a family get-together, keep it subdued and opt for a braided fishtail ponytail. Skip blow drying and instead, gather your hair into a ponytail that sits at the crown of your head, wrapping a small section of hair around the base of the pony to hide the elastic. Next, split the hair into two sections and begin your fishtail braid. Within 10 minutes, you'll have a fresh look that'll keep your strands off your face - which will definitely make your mother happy. 

For a casual affair
If you're attending a low-key party at your friend's apartment, try a loose braid pulled to one side, which is flirty and romantic without being overdone. After making a deep side part in your hair, loosely braid your hair starting around your chin, pulling out a few strands as you go. For extra hold that won't weigh down your locks, spritz on the Steiner Stay Put Extra Firm Finishing Spray after roughing up the hair with your fingertips. 

For a formal affair
When rocking a little black dress or body-skimming gown, it's all about the slicked-back bun, which doesn't distract from your attention-grabbing frock. But be careful - the wrong type of bun can create harsh angles for your face, making you look far too stiff or austere. Have some fun and add a twist to the classic high bun with a wide sparkly headband placed an inch back from your hairline. Or, opt for a classier take on the top knot. Back-comb the front of your hair before you gather it into a high ponytail, which will give it an extra lift. Then, split the hair into two sections and twist one around the other until your have a coil, and pin it to the crown of your head. Finish the look with the Steiner Gloss Mist Shine Spray for an all-over sheen.
