party season hairstyles

Dear December, you know we love you. What with the champagne showers and gift-giving, you pretty much win as far as months go. But sometimes? Well…you stress us out. Particularly in the sartorial department. We’ve figured it out though and have the perfect antidote to combat those “What the heck am I wearing to the 5th cocktail party of the season?” doldrums and it all starts with fabulous HAIR! There’s no denying that a chic ‘do can elevate an outfit from “Oh, hi” to “Hellloooooo!” and we’ve rounded up 4 hairstyles that will make you party perfect in no time. The best part? They’re super simple to recreate—maximum style with minimal effort—just how we like.

Vintage Waves

Look like an old-school Hollywood diva with these vintage, glamorous waves—a fitting tribute to the ’40s. It gives the hair ample movement and structure, and a certain je nai se quoi too.

Luxemi’s Foil Printed “Club” Pallu Saree by Satya Paul is begging to be worn with vintage waves. Don’t you agree? A 10/10 look for a cocktail party! You can also team this hairdo with a sequined evening gown.

Flaunt the neckline and bodice embellishment of Luxemi’s Green Brocade Halter Suit with Zari Work and Sequins by opting for the side swept bun. We suggest wearing the look for a friend’s sangeet or dinner party. It will work like a charm with a black jumpsuit, printed skater dress or embellished blazer too.

Messy Side Braid

If you feel a fishtail braids are done to death, trust style goddesses like Blake Lively to give it a unique uodate. This messy side braid is oh-so-chic and effortless, how can you not love it?

Complement Luxemi’s White and Silver Gota Angrakha Salwar with the messy braid for a divine look. Recreating this look with a breezy maxi or sheer top is a good idea too!

Perfect Ponytail

There’s nothing as fuss-free as a ponytail. And a flirty ’50s high tail with extra bounce is just what this season calls for. You can even go a step further and embellish it with a sparkly hair accessory.
