Skip the ponytail, experiment with your hair this holiday season!

Holiday parties are the perfect opportunity to experiment with the most inspiring celebrity hairstyles you spend the rest of the year pining (and pinning) away for. Allure rounded up a month's worth of stunning options, complete with styling tips and product recommendations straight from some of the pros who created them.

There are braids, waves and updos galore. And if you don't have the same hair texture as the woman don't fret, you can still gather inspiration from these styles. A deep side part with a sparkly pin works on any curl pattern, and we think braids always look (and hold) their best with textured hair.
