Looking to style your bangs for a holiday bash? Take a cue from the '60s—and Dakota Johnson. Part them down the center and gently sweep them to either side to frame your face. Balance out the severity of a precise part by adding a volume to the crown of your hair and pulling it loosely back into a rounded chignon.
Upgrade a simple pulled-back hairstyle with a statement making headpiece like Elizabeth Banks—because after all, your hair is your crowning glory. Can't afford an actual designer tiara? Try one of these beautiful alternatives from Etsy instead.
Ginnifer Goodwin's chic crop highlights her bright eyes and fine features. To give a pixie hairstyle a party feel, rub pomade on the edges to give it a piece-y, tousled look—and why not add a delicate headband to add some additional sparkle?

A deep-parted hairstyle is always stylish—create the look of bangs (like Julianne Moore has) by combing the front section of your hair slightly down over your forehead and securing them behind one ear with a bobby pin for a sleekly festive look.
Rocking a mid-length 'do with loads of layers? Sweep it sideways like Malin Ackerman, fixing it in place with just a hint of flexible-hold hairspray. Bonus—this will also add loads of shine!
And if you want to go really big—literally speaking—you can't go wrong with a soft, curly updo like Rihanna's. Pull your hair into a mid-height ponytail and curl each section with a wide-barreled curling iron, gentling pulling them forward and pinning them around your face for a retro-inspired party hairstyle that will have everyone talking.
