Still searching for the perfect holiday beauty look? Well, look no further! Rita Ora, 24, had jaws dropping when she hit The X Factor stage on Nov. 14, stepping out in an intricate side braid and smooth, retro-inspired waves. The look was stunning and would no doubt make a pretty addition to our party looks this holiday season. Get the details on how you can copy Rita’s bombshell hairdo with expert tips from her hairstylist below!


Rita has been killing it recently when it comes to her X Factor beauty looks and on Nov. 14, we feel particularly in love with her cool, retro-inspired hairdo. Created by celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton, the look was comprised of long, glossy waves that looked super glamorous, while the left side had a Dutch side braid that gave the look an edgy, cool vibe.

Rita Ora’s Glamorous ‘X Factor’ Hairstyle — Get The Look

To copy Rita’s look in time for your next holiday party, start by creating a deep side part with damp hair. From there, blow dry the hair smooth using a heat protecting spray for a sleek, healthy looking finish.

Using jumbo heated rollers, wrap your hair around the rollers until your entire head is covered. This will give you a sexy soft wave that oozes glamour. From there, make sure you add a blast of Fudge Urban Iced Raspberry & Vanilla Hairspray from mid-length and down to the ends to give extra hold and structure.

After 10 minutes, take out the rollers and gently brush out the hair. On the lower side of the part take a 3-inch section of hair and braid along the scalp to add subtle, but beautiful detail to your waves. This is perfect to jazz up you hair for the party season.

Finally, to create added volume, Chris recommends using Fudge Urban Sea Salt Spray at the roots, which is great if you hair is fine or in need of extra volume.
