Top 12 Party Hairstyles Ideas

There’s nothing quite like having a special event to go to that makes you want to step up your style a notch. Whether you’re getting ready to attend a formal affair like an engagement party or wedding reception, the holiday party for your office or you're heading out for a more boisterous affair like a bachelorette party, having the perfect hairstyle is an absolute must.

Here we’re showcasing 12 popular party hairstyles that range from fun and flirty to elegant and dramatic. You’re sure to find one that will add the perfect flare to your ensemble at your next fiesta.

Textured Half-Up

This textured half-up style is a little bit classy, a little bit glamorous, and a whole lot of sexy. To make it your own, first dry and style your hair with loose curls, and then use hairpins to secure your tresses in back leaving a few pieces to fall in your face. Add volume by teasing your strands before you pin them back.

Fishtail Crown Braid


A crown braid adds a charming bohemian touch too long, wavy hair. This style is perfect for a professional setting, like an office holiday party, or a more casual affair like a summer wedding reception.

Large Crown Braid with Pony


Something about a big, funky braid just screams “I’m out to have a good time.” Try this slightly messy style with a long, voluminous ponytail for a night out with the girls to celebrate a birthday or upcoming nuptials.

Bombshell Curls


Big, boisterous bombshell-style curls a la Marilyn Monroe are perfect for party situations that require glamor and finesse. Get the look using hot rollers, curl-enhancing styling products, and a serum to lock in luster and shine.

Cute Hairstyle for a Birthday Party


This birthday hairstyle is perfect for a night out with friends. A top knot with a shiny ribbon looks very festive, and rhinestones on the head complement the look. Definitely, with this hairstyle, you will be a true superstar.

Dutch Braid Low Ponytail


The Dutch braid is a twist on the traditional French braid. If you know how to do a French braid, you simply flip the braid inside out. Rather than weaving the sections of hair underneath, you’ll weave them over the top to create this unique look. In this style, twist your hair right to the nape of your neck and then secure your strands into a low ponytail.

Take a small section of your hair and wind it around your hair tie and secure it behind with a bobby pin to cover up the elastic and give your style a classy finish.

Crisscross Braid Crown


These beautiful braids combined with luxurious waves will make you feel like a fairy princess at the party. You’ll want to dry and style your hair first, creating loose curls that fall down your back.

Next, take sections of hair near your temples on both sides of your head and braid them back. Finally, pin the braids crossing behind your head to create the crown. If your hair isn’t quite long enough to pull off this style, consider adding some clip-in extensions.

The braids do an excellent job of hiding the faux hair and making the style look natural.

Double Dutch Braid with a Bun


Scoring the perfect up-do for your party that both pull your hair up off your neck and has a little personality and flare can be a challenge. With this double dutch braid, you’re sure to have a unique design that has a little bit of whimsy and a whole lot of vogue.

One-Sided Braid

Braids can be both beautiful and elegant, or they can be funky and a little punk-rock. This fun side braid is the latter, giving your style a little edge without going overboard into Goth territory.

Double Upside Down French Braided Buns

Not everyone can pull off the double, mini buns a la Princess Leia in the first Star Wars movie, but if you can, this is a brilliant way to take them up a notch further. Start by parting your hair down the middle, and then flip your head over to French braid your tresses starting at the nape of your neck and working towards the top of your head. When you reach your crown, tie off your strands. Finally, wrap the length of unbraided hair around your elastic, pinning it as you go to create a perfect bun. Repeat the process on the other side taking care to ensure your braids and buns are symmetrical.

Ballerina Bun with Braided Crown


The magnificent ballerina bun has been a long-time go-to hairstyle for elegant girls who need a quick and easy up-do. This stunning twist adds a thick braid that winds around the bun, decorating the style for a classy night out. Are you heading to a wedding reception or a fancy cocktail party?

This might be the perfect party hairstyle for you.

Messy Side Bun


If Hollywood darling Jennifer Lawrence wore it to the Movie Awards, you know that it’s a perfect party style. The low, messy side bun is a little bit classy and a little bit fun, making it the perfect choice for any soirée, day or night.
