Bangs can be incorporated into many popular holiday party hairdos. They are also a great way to spice up a common hairstyle and add texture, volume, and enhance facial features. There are several different types of bangs that can be added to any hairstyle. These include straight bangs which are combed straight down around the eyebrows, parted bangs that are parted down the middle or to the side, choppy bangs which included choppy or uneven layers of hair, side swept bangs which are swept to one side, wispy bangs which are sprinkled across the forehead, blunt bangs which come over the forehead and wavy bangs which are curled before being swept across the forehead. Different bang features can also be combined as well to create the perfect hairstyle for your holiday party.
The sophisticated updo is a great look for professional holiday events or classy parties. To create this look, you’ll need a blow-dryer, brush, wide-toothed comb, styling mousse, one-inch curling iron, bobby pins, hot rollers, and hairspray. Begin by washing your hair, towel-dry it, and then work the styling mousse throughout from root to tip. Blow-dry the hair thoroughly as this hairdo works best with very dry hair.
Begin rolling one inch sections of hair into large hot rollers. Give each section of hair a spritz of hairspray to be sure the curl holds well. Allow the hot rollers to set in the hair for 20 to 30 minutes. Once the curls have had sufficient time to set, take out the rollers and tease the roots to provide maximum volume. Pull all the hair back into a loose ponytail in the center-back of the head.
Next, take chunks of curls and roll them into the scalp and pin securely to the head. Continue to do this with each chunk of hair, alternating directions as you pin. Bangs work well if parted to the side or smoothed along the sides of the face for this style. Add extra bobby pins and hairspray to keep the hairdo in place during your holiday party.
The Casual Updo
For more casual holiday party events, this updo is perfect for showing a sexy neckline and a fabulous pair of earnings. This look is best for wavy hair and will require a brush, styling mousse, ponytail holder, one inch curling iron, and bobby pins. This look can also be accessorized using barrettes, headbands, and other hair accessories.
To create this hairdo, part the hair down the middle and curl using the one inch curling iron. Spray each section of hair to keep the curls in place. Once all the hair has been curled, gather and create a messy bun in the back by winding the hair together into a bun. Secure the messy bun with a ponytail holder. Twist and secure any fallen pieces with bobby pins. Allow the slightly curled bangs to fall against the side of the face.
Wear Your Hair Down
Some women prefer to let their hair down for the holidays. There are many different styles that can be incorporated with bangs when the hair is left down instead of in a holiday updo. For this hairdo, you will need styling mousse, a brush, a wide-toothed comb, hairspray, hair-dryer, and your choice of sponge rollers, hot rollers, or a curling iron.
Begin by washing the hair, add styling mousse from root to tip, and drying the hair with your head flipped down and a hair-dryer nozzle for maximum volume. Be sure that all the hair is completely dry before you attempt to curl. Next, curl the hair with small sponge rollers, small hot rollers, or a small barreled (1/2 inch) curling iron. Sponge rollers work best as they create small ringlets that hold very well for a long period of time. If you use sponge rollers, they must be applied to damp hair and allowed to sit until the hair is dry.
Finish this look by removing the rollers, allowing the curls to cool, and spritzing the hair with a light-weight hairspray as not to weigh down the hair with too much styling product. This tight-ringlet holiday party look works best with longer bangs that are slightly curled and swept to one side. Bobby pins can also be used to pull back sections of hair.
The Holiday Party Look
Women can incorporate their bangs into a limitless amount of beautiful holiday party looks. Whether casual or formal, these looks will go well with any holiday fashion choice. These hairdos are also easy to complete at home by an average person inexpensively. You’ll love showing off your new holiday hairdo at the next Christmas or New Years party.
