Dressing for an after-work holiday event? Received a last-minute invite to a formal dinner party? With a few tips and tricks in your back pocket this holiday season, you can approach all your special events with celebratory style.

Instant Glam Situation #1: Take Your Look from the Office to an After-Work Occasion

Prepare ahead of time for that office party or the after-work festivity that always tends to pop up on your packed calendar. Invigorate your scalp—and your senses—with Root Awakening® Shampoo and Conditioner. This eucalyptus-enriched formula delivers the best of both worlds: an invigorated scalp and beautiful hair you can style for any occassion.

Start the workday off in office-appropriate slim trousers or dark skinny jeans and a tailored blazer over a flow-y, silky top. To take the look from day to night in a snap, simply switch out pretty flats for striking high heels, take off the blazer, and add a little sparkle with dangly earrings and a lipstick that shimmers.

Finally, complete the evening look with an instant hair refresher. To add some oomph to your style after a long day of work, simply spray Luxurious Volume Anytime Volume Refresher at the roots and work through with fingertips. And voilá!—Instant glam!

Instant Glam Situation #2: Formal Party Invitation

When it comes to a last-minute invite to a formal dinner party or a New Year's celebration that requires a bit of instant sparkle, raid your own closet for flattering and sophisticated looks. Add a long string of faux pearls to a favorite, long dress, and wear with sheer stockings and a chic, platform heel. For elegant comfort, reach for a silky wrap dress in a bright, celebratory colour—instantly flattering, and effortlessly stylish. For makeup, choose a red lip for instant drama and polish.

Finally, pull the look together with a sophisticated hair style that you can achieve in moments. To create a quick and cosmopolitan look, pull hair back into a sleek chignon and secure with a sparkling brooch or rhinestone hair pins. Or create an elegant bend just in the ends of long hair by using a large curling iron. To add polish and shine to either look, smooth flyaways and broken ends with the Full Repair® Touch-up Flyaway Tamer.
