Beauty Bible; Your Christmas party Whether it's a work 'do or a festive gathering with your family, we've got a stunning hair style, a glitzy manicure, and tips on how to up your glam factor for the big night.

The twisted bun You don't need to head to a hairdresser to get a perfect up-do. This quick step-by-step guide will show you how you can create this pretty (and easy!) look in just a few minutes.

STEP 1: Prep your hair by applying a volumising mousse to mid-lengths and ends. If you're starting with wet hair, blow-dry until completely dry. Brush through.

STEP 2: Take the front side section of your hair and bring it around to the nape of your neck, twisting it slightly as you go. Secure in place with a bobby pin while you do the same on the other side. Remove the bobby pin and tie the twisted ends and the rest of your hair together into a low ponytail.

STEP 3: Bring the end of your pony up to the V section where your twists connect and create a little hole in the hair, behind the hair tie. Pull the whole pony through the hole and wind the hair around the newly created twist to cover up any visible bits of the hair band.

STEP 4: Fold your ponytail up toward the V section again, but this time, tuck about the last inch or two of your hair into the twists. The longer your hair, the more you may need to tuck in, or else you'll be left with a very large bun.

STEP 5: Continue tucking in the hair until it forms a nice, neat bun, then coming from an upward angle, push bobby pins into where you've just tucked in the hair, and secure as neatly and out of sight as possible. Spritz with some shine-enhancing hair spray to keep your look in place.
