To get your hair looking fab, here, step-by-step tips on how to create the perfect holiday party style from hairstylist Patrick Melville. Celebrate your holiday season in high style!

1. Blow-dry hair with Mason Pearson Brush or round brush, when hair is dry, spray hair with the AVEENO® Dry Shampoo at the root to create texture

2. Take a small tail comb and tease very gently at the root throughout the head, flip hair upside down and break up hair with your finger

3. Grab hair at the nape and secure with hair tie, this should create a little texture and softness around your face

4. With the tail comb, gently tease the ponytail to create more texture, spin ponytail around to create a chignon at nape of neck and secure with a straight pin or bobby pin

5. Break up with fingers on the bottom, use a lightweight hairspray to secure in place, finish with a sparkly headband or clip
