(Getty Images)Don't let fancy pants updos intimidate you this holiday season. You can rock a glamorous style—without the fuss. One of the most elegant (and easy) ways to dress up your tresses is a soft, side swept bun.
Stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Charlize Theron, Darby Stanchfield, and more have made the 'do a red carpet staple. Now let this lovely style become your holiday go-to look with these simple steps.
1) Apply a volumizing mousse evenly throughout the hair. Blowout hair using a medium round brush. This will give hair lift and bounce at the roots.
2) Spritz a heat-protector all over hair to prevent damage. Once dry, use a one-inch curling iron to add some waves and curls. Depending on how curly you want your locks, you can vary the tightness of the curling iron.
3) Brush hair back to one side and twist into a loose bun. Secure bun in place at the nape of the neck with bobby pins. Once secured, use a strong-hold hairspray to set the hair. Pull out pieces around the face to give a textured, tousled look.
See. We told ya it was simple!
