1. Half updo
Jazz up a half updo with a accent hair clip to add a touch of glam, especially with a faux pear clip or two.
The look also keeps long fringes away from the face, effectively enabling you to have an obstruction-free CNY cookie binge.
2. Side braid
Another fuss-free way to sweep up unruly fringes and to keep the hair off your face to let your make up shine, try the side braid that is perfect for both short and long hair.
Spritz a texturising spray to add some texture and hold to the hair before braiding.
3. Voluminous sleek pony tail
When the feasting begins, we know it’s serious business. This hairstyle has got you covered for both the gut and the glam.
The trick to nail down this look is to back comb your hair first before tying it into a low ponytail. Section off enough hair to wrap around the hair tie to secure that effortless sleek look.
