Holiday parties are the perfect excuse to try out a new updo. The bun remains a classic go-to, so twirl it up, tuck it under, or add some accessories and you've got a look that is sure to stun.
Heidi Klum's low tucked under bun
At the 67th Bambi Awards Berlin Heidi Klum complimented her elegant purple ball gown with a low bun, a look that was trending on the red carpet this year. Her hairstylist chose to move away from the deep side part or striking middle part that accompanied most of the buns this season by brushing all of Klum's hair back and leaving the chignon loose. This look would be gorgeous with a high neckline like a turtleneck, and statement jewel stud earrings.
Kendall Jenner's high topknot
One SS16 trend is the higher the topknot the better. Kendall Jenner embraced the look at the American Music Awards and took it a step further by rocking it with straight long bangs. People have been questioning if the model's bangs are real or not, proving that it may be entirely possible to pull off clip-on bangs if they are matched to your hair color perfectly and cleverly placed.
Ariana Grande's braided topknot
Ariana Grande's topknot shows that it's possible to give the classic look a creative twist by creating a fishtail braid and wrapping it around the bun. The braid keeps the look romantic but the overall messiness makes it easy to replicate, and fairly quickly. Any time that can be saved during the busy holiday season is definitely welcome!
