Party Hairstyles: chignon

Hot Bun
There's nothing schoolmarmish about this chignon. Braided and placed slightly askew, it's a modern take on the classic bun.

1. Start with a low side part, then gather all of your hair into a side ponytail and secure it with a clear elastic band.

2. Braid the tail and secure the end with another clear elastic.

3. Wrap the braid around its base to form a bun, and anchor it to your head with bobby pins. For a secure hold, stab the bun, then slide the pin into the hair along your scalp and hook the pin downward. Use about eight bobby pins around the base of the bun.

4. Pick a lightweight shine spray such as Tresemme No Frizz Shine Spray ($5, drugstore.com) to smooth down any flyaways (mist your palms with the shine spray, then glide your hands over your hair).

5. Dress up your bun by adorning it with a few jeweled hairpins placed side by side.

Party Hairstyles: headband

Crowned Jewel
Hey, it's cocktail-party season. What better time to let loose? Allow your curly or textured hair to get a little wild, then top it off with a stylish headband that matches your hair color. The headband adds glamour, but it's discreet.

1. Sprinkle a waxbased root volumizer such as Aveda Pure Abundance Potion ($23, aveda.com) onto your scalp, then flip your head and massage it in with your fingers. Hair wax is great to use at the end of the day, when your curls are drooping.

2. Flip upright—your hair will be full of volume—and slide on a dressy headband, like the black satin one shown here from Spring Street ($30, Enterprize Brooklyn, 718-769-5800).

3. Don't smooth the frizzy bits. When you're out dancing, the flyaways will catch the light, creating a soft halo.

Party Hairstyles: ponytail

Pretty Pony
The beauty of the messy side pony: It's dressy and casual at the same time. This look works best on thick hair, whether it's straight or curly, because you'll want a substantial tail—it's the focal point.

1. Pull your hair into a low side ponytail and secure it with a clear elastic. Don't use a brush. This is meant to be sexy and dreamy, and it's OK if a few hairs are out of place.

2. Get tousled volume by grabbing your crown and giving your hair one big squeeze. This adds to the sexy vibe, like you just made out with a guy in the elevator. Then spritz all over with a light-hold hair spray.

3. Pull a quarter-inch piece of hair out of the ponytail, coat it with hair spray until it's damp, then wrap it around the tail's base to cover the elastic band. Hide the tip of the piece in the tail's underside and pin it neatly so it doesn't show.

4. Finger-comb a dime-size amount of anti-frizz shine serum through the tail to smooth flyaways and add a gleamy finish. Try Organix Revitalizing Pomegranate Green Tea Anti-Frizz Serum ($7, amazon.com).

Party Hairstyles: teased

Big Tease
Thin is great—unless you're talking about your hair. This sleek style will add lots of luscious body (plus a bit of drama) to fine or limp locks.

1. Run an open palm through your hair, from your forehead back to your crown, and gather that chunk of hair into a clip and secure it on top of your head.

2. Above each ear, brush a two-inch section of hair back, mist each with hair spray, and secure the sections together at the back of your head with a clear elastic band to form a tight ponytail.

3. Unclip the top portion, and tease the hair with a rattail comb. Comb downward starting two inches above your scalp. Work from your hairline to your crown.

4. Gently smooth the teased section with a brush, just enough to tame flyaways.

5. Set the style with hair spray. Try Nexxus Natural Hold Design & Finishing Mist ($11, cvs.com).
