4. High Bun
Wearing your hair up for parties can feel a bit boring when you wear it up all day erry day at work.
But, instead of letting your locks down (literally and figuratively) try this messy, voluminous high bun using halo hair extensions.
High buns are probably not the first things that come to mind when it comes to hairstyles for halo hair extensions.
But not only can it be done, it also looks cute as well.
So, how to style halo hair extensions in high buns?
To get this cute Christmas party hairstyle start by loosely curling your hair and halo separately.
Pull your hair into a high pony.
Remove the wire from either side of the halo and replace it with 2 bobby pins.
Push one pin into the base of the ponytail and wrap the weft around it, also pushing the other bobby pin into the ponytail base once the entire length is wrapped.
From there simply pin and place sections of hair around the base to create a full and flirty messy bun.
5. High Ponytail
High ponytails should be high on your list of Christmas party hairstyles.
But only if you're prepared to up your pony game with a halo.
Why you ask?
Similarly to the high bun, the high ponytail is a staple style for the office.
So usually you should think twice before putting those locks up for an office shindig.

7. Vintage Waves
Vintage waves are another classic Christmas party hairstyle perfect for formal functions.
Recreate these sleek water waves by beginning with clean, dry hair and apply heat protection spray.
Blow-dry your locks with a wide barrel brush to create some extra volume and add some texturising spray to the roots and mid-lengths.
You can either curl your halo before you place it or when you curl your natural hair.
Volume is key and nothing adds body like a halo.
If you are adding your halo before you do your curls, separate your hair and place your extension a few inches back from your forehead.
Keep your hair separated to curl. This will allow you to be more thorough when styling.
Use a large curler or waving wand and curl inch wide sections of hair.
Keeping your hair flat while you wrap it around the iron is the most important thing when creating vintage waves.
Brush the waves out so the halo blends beautifully with your hair locks and apply some anti-frizz.
Hair behind the ear is this style's signature.
Push your hair into a side part and using a tail comb slick one side behind your ear.
Secure with a bobby pin or a festive clip.
Cover the weft with a small section of hair if needed.
