There is no better occasion to wear big hair than the end of year holiday season! Christmas and New Years parties are the perfect place to go crazy with the volume and big bouncy curls to really amp up the glam factor. If you like to play it safe with your hair all year, it's time to let loose and go big or go home! Check out these recent red carpet snaps of celebs rocking big hair and see which 'do is right for you.
Carrie Underwood is always rocking big, bouncy 'dos that look oh-so-fabulous! Here, she looks dazzling in her side-swept curly hairstyle that is fit for a goddess. To get this look, Carrie set her hair in large rollers, rolling the front sections away from the face to get that cool cascading effect. After the curls had set she brushed through them to create that silky finish while softening up the curls and adding extra bounce. Carrie's hair may have been too voluminous left all down, so she has cleverly swept one side back to reduce any excess bulk and add a classy finish.
If you're looking for a big up-do, check out Kate Beckinsale's gorgeous bun. This hairstyle is anything but boring thanks to all those curls and the volume at the crown. You can transform your festive look this year by styling your hair just like Kate. Start by giving yourself a voluminous blow dry and then use large hot rollers to set your hair. Once the curls have been set, unroll them and add backcombing to the roots all over, and then pull the hair back into a high, loose ponytail. Finally, take sections of the ponytail and create loops before pinning them down.
For ladies who like straight, sleek looks, check out Lisa Kudrow's big bouncy blowout. This look is perfect for women who want to wear their hair down but don't want to miss out on all that volume. This hairstyle can be achieved by using a strong root booster and then blow-drying the hair to add volume at the roots. Finish it off by rolling sections of hair in large or extra large Velcro rollers to set. This will give your hair all that lift in the roots while keeping the ends smooth and sculpted.
Here, Tricia Helfer shows ladies with short hair how they can go big this holiday season. Tricia has given her angled bob some body and bounce by focusing on the roots and adding volume in the crown area. This can be achieved at home by blow-drying the hair with a good root booster and round brush, concentrating on the root area first and then drying the rest of the hair sleek.
Finally, if you have naturally curly or wavy hair like Beyonce, then you are already ahead of the big hair game this season! Just let your natural curls do their thing and enjoy the natural body and bounce of your tresses. To jazz it up a bit, try a new colour or some highlights to freshen up your look.
