5 Runway-Inspired Ponytails For Any Holiday Occasion

While the usual low-slung pony is great for day-to-day, holiday party season provides the ideal opportunity to experiment with a different style. That’s why we’ve teamed up with one of our favorite sites, Beauty High. Each week, they’ll be sending over a few runway shots to inspire you to try something new for your upcoming festive fetes.

One of the biggest trends on the runways for the past couple of seasons has been the dressed up ponytail. From slicked-back to slightly disheveled, there is a pony out there for you, no matter your style. And we’re not talking about that haphazard, running-to-the-gym ponytail—we’re talking about a ponytail that you can wear to your boyfriend’s parent’s house.

With all of your holiday events over the next few days, having a couple of great sophisticated styles to rely on is a must. Check out a few of our favorite runway-ready ponytails to try below.

5 Sleek Runway Hairstyles to Wear to Your Holiday Parties

While the usual low-slung pony is great for day-to-day, holiday party season provides the ideal opportunity to experiment with a different style. That’s why we’ve teamed up with one of our favorite sites, Beauty High. Each week, they’ll be sending over a few runway shots to inspire you to try something new for your upcoming festive fetes.

This holiday season, the hairstyles du jour aren’t glam curls or impossible-to-achieve updos. If there’s one thing that we learned from the fall 2012 runways, it’s that sleek and straight will always be an old standby, and when done right, can take our look to an entirely new level.

Although the line between shiny and greasy can be a hard one to walk, stylists have shown us how just a touch of sheen can add class to any ponytail or chignon. We drew inspiration from the runway shows below to get us through our packed holiday party schedules and beyond.

5 Braids You Can Wear to All of Your Holiday Parties

With holiday season in full swing, having a few go-to hairstyles in your arsenal is pretty essential. Most of us have our favorite bold lipsticks that we keep in our purses to swipe on when we realize we have to run from work (or school) to three different holiday parties, but our hair can be a completely different issue. Luckily, the trends on the fall/winter runways had plenty of different styles to inspire us, from bouffants to braids.

Most of us have been braiding our hair since we were in elementary school, so we immediately took to this trend—and it’s one that has become a runway staple ever since Guido Palau sent girls down Alex Wang’s runway in spring of 2010 with disheveled side braids. This season, we saw the braid take on a few more forms, from the milkmaid to cornrows, and they all work equally well for your holiday activities. Click through to find some inspiration for your packed holiday calendar, and for how to adapt these looks to your off-the-runway life.
