Updos for holiday parties are a great way to show off a gorgeous neckline or an amazing pair of earrings. This hairstyle gallery features all sorts of updos. From messy 'dos, to formal upsweeps to hair accessorized with headbands and barrettes, you'll find your ideal holiday hair style.
The look featured in this picture works best on wavy hair (hair with natural wave in it holds a curl much better than straight hair) with long layers. Part hair in the middle, then curl hair. Create a messy bun in the back by winding hair into a bun and securing with a ponytail holder and bobby pins.
