CC Beauty Live: Holiday Updos (2 for 1!)

The holidays are my favorite time of the year because I feel like it gives us all an excuse to get all prettied up almost every day. There are just tons of holiday parties and gatherings, which I l-o-v-e getting dressed up for. But my favorite part of all? The hair! I mean, how often do we college girls have an opportunity to go all out on our hair?

That’s why I nearly died when I saw a billion gorgeous holiday up-dos in the magazines this month! I decided to walk you through two looks I saw in Cosmo’s December 2010 issue that every girl must try this season. One is a messy up-do and the other is a messy side ponytail.

Do you see a pattern?

Yup, messy is in. But it’s cute messy. Deliberate. Intentional. Not, “I just woke up and threw on this LRD.” How do you get it just right? Let me help.
