It's time for sequined dresses and statement tresses. Think big curl energy, slicked back glossy buns and volume for days. Our guide to styling your hair this season is going to see you through every party, from Christmas to New Year's Eve.
The most exciting part of the celebratory season is getting dressed up. Plus, who doesn't love great pictures? This year, we're not following any rules-OTT sequins are encouraged, sky high platforms are preferred, and voluminous statement locks are a must. If, like us, you plan your party hairstyles way in advance, this guide will tide you through every event on your calendar.
Want a sure shot way to stand out at any party? The answer is statement braids. Take a leaf from model Pritika Swarup's book as she opts for a single long braid with slicked back hair. Plus, when your hair is tucked away from the face, it's a great opportunity to wear bold earrings to accentuate your look. Our favourite party girl and actor Vanessa Hudgens loves to take a risk when it comes to her glam. If you have as big an appetite for adventurous hairstyles, opt for her two, high braids. Make sure to use a generous amount of the Livon Anti Frizz Serum for a smooth and glossy finish.
It's A Ponytail Party

A night of carefree dancing with no worries about flyaways and complicated up-dos? Sign us up! There's nothing more stunning and yet practical, than a glamorous party ponytail. High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens opts for a side-parted, vintage inspired look while singer Ariana Grande, aka the reigning queen of ponytails, opts for a mid-head classic version. It's super easy to achieve at home with a straightener, tight rubber bands and bobby pins to keep it from moving all night. Livon Shake & Spray Serum will be your best friend on party night, for that expensive salon-finish gloss.
It's Giving Modern Mermaid

If popstar Dua Lipa says side-parted waves are in, then so be it. We're rocking this hair for every party we attend this season. We promise you can get this look in just fifteen quick minutes. First, part your hair to the preferred side. Then, use a dollop of the Livon Damage Protect Serum to prevent heat related harm. And finally, with a triple barrel waver, give yourself mermaid inspired curls.

Sunshine girl Gigi Hadid turns the heat on at every party she attends. Sure, she may have a glam squad to get her ready, but we're here to tell you that you can get her salon perfect locks at home! Middle part your hair, leave two fairly heavy front sections out while you take the rest up in a messy top knot or bun, as you prefer. Use Livon Super Styler Serum on the front portions before using heat to make them poker straight. Pair your look with a sparkly dress, as Hadid does, and you're ready to go! Alternatively, you can opt for model and beauty goddess Hailey Bieber's similar up-do with textured front sections instead.

Nothing like a good old 90s blowout to make you feel like you own the night. Take a cue from reigning glam queen Kim Kardashian who pairs her silver, space inspired look with equally statement, blow dried blonde tresses that are no doubt inspired by the greats-models Cindy Crawford and Tyra Banks. To get the look you need three things-a great round brush, a blow dryer and Livon Damage Protect Serum. Expert tip: make sure to blow dry your hair in portions to get that really voluminous look.

Everything actor Zendaya touches turns to gold and this hairstyle is proof. One might think it tricky to pull off curly, hip length voluminous locks on a petite frame, but Zendaya proves us wrong, one killer look at a time. For those of you who naturally have tresses this length, we salute you girl! Like us, if you can't put in the hours this length of hair demands, keep a good quality set of extensions handy that you can pull out for party season. Use an iron with a larger barrel for loose waves towards the bottom. Up top, opt for an iron with a small barrel so your waves are nice and tight.
