Zendaya and Blake Lively have holiday hair looks down pat! A celeb stylist is breaking them down so you can create these looks at home!

Nick Arrojo, Celebrity Stylist and founder and owner of ARROJO salons, is breaking down two sexy looks seen on Zendaya and Blake Lively earlier this year, so you can look sexy and stunning at your holiday event!

Nick told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY how you can copy these two sexy styles:

“Best Holiday Accessory –– The Gilded Headband: The holidays are a time to make an entrance. Put on a sparkly dress, slap on the lippy, and try a fun new accessory, like one of the lovely golden headbands currently trending. A thin gilded ringlet goes with any outfit (and especially well with black) or occasion and looks glamorous adorning loose waves or on top of a dramatic updo. It’s subtle enough for casual ensembles but dressy enough for cocktail hour.

When selecting your headband pick one that gives you a little contrast. Flowers are a great choice if you tend to stick to solid colors and simple patterns. If you love feminine prints, try feathers or a motif of leaves. Make sure to select a band that fits snuggly and has a sufficient attachments. Small combs or loops where you can add bobby pins will help your accessory feel secure.

Play around with placement. You can wear the band at the hair line, around the crown, or vertically just behind the ears. Try wearing a few pieces pinned on top or use it to tame crimps or manage tight curls. Have fun and make it your statement. Hold your look in place with Holding Spray.”

Holiday Hairstyles — Romantic Waves You Can Do Yourself

“Vintage Romantic Waves with Side Part: Glamorous waves combined with a stylistic side-part is a classic and romantic style from the Golden Age of Hollywood (think of Veronica Lake’s tumbling tresses). The face-framing asymmetry and the cascading curls will never go out of fashion because it’s one of the best styles for framing features, like eyes, cheekbones, lips and chin. In days gone by this look would have been created with a roller set; nowadays, though, instead of having to set hair over several hours, or even overnight, you can use hot-tools to make this look as quick as a flash.

On clean, wet hair, apply Styling Crème liberally from roots to ends. Mist in some Protective Thickening Lotion, too. Using a 1 to 2 inch curling iron, curl whole head of hair. After making each curl, use a pin-curl clip to pin-in each curl. Once all curls are pinned, mist Primp Working Spray over them.

Switch your blowdryer to cool and apply cool air to curls until they have cooled completely. Unclip curls. Using outside arch of eyebrow as the guide, make a deep side-part. Now simply brush out curls until they form the vintage and romantic shape you want. Mist fierce Firm Fierce Hold Hairspray over finished style for extra hold and support.”
