Next weekend is dhs Christmas party and I don't know what to do with hair and makeup. This is me now, and I'm going to be wearing a knee length strapless cocktail dress in royal blue...

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated :)

This is my hair curled... My hair doesn't hold well... are there any suggestions for keeping curls in case I do curl it??

And this is my hair straight.... so which one do you all think?? I'm going to do a poof on the top I just don't know whether to curl or straighten... Thank you for opinions :)

Can you afford to get your hair professionallydone?

Just bring that adorable baby and they won't notice your hair. :)

Maybe you could do something half up and just curl it. Curls are always pretty in long hair. Since your dress is blue do a neutral brown eye shadow, mascara, and some lip gloss. It would be pretty with out looking like you tried too hard.

I think your hair would look great if you just used a curling iron and curled it in long, thing spiral curls. I think that woud be perfect

With hair, as long as yours is, I'd be doing some major poofing. Bobby pin some of the top hair into a bump. As for make-up, I'd say some eyeliner with some blue eyeshadow, and some good mascara to really bring out your eyelashes.

Here is a youtube link on how to curl your hair without a curling iron.  I tried it and it totally works.  You would have to do a trial first to see what it does to your hair, but with your long hair I think it would look awesome.

Id do some loose curls or spirals. As for makeup, i love the "Marylin Monroe" look: translucent white eyedhadow(NYE makes a powder one in white translucent and one in champagne that would look good), a little mascara, light blush and for the lips i would do a berry tone lipgloss. Also, fake lashes always add a little extra pop! Youtube has great tutorials for help.
