For fun with the fam, you'll want to look festive but not super done-up. Go for a look that elevates the everyday, like this polished ponytail. The wave at the front is a sweet retro touch, and looks cute with everything from jeans to a party dress.
THE OFFICE AFTER HOURS
"Work party" may sound like a contradiction in terms, but we like to think of it as a delicate balance, which, done right can be fun and professional╌much like this half-up, half down 'do.
