You've been invited to a great party or wedding, and you've got your outfit sorted and you know what make up look you're going to be serving... but what to do with your hair??

You'll need to comb out your hair for this one, possibly using heat. Then, create a top knot and sweep the rest of your hair to the back of your head and pin in place before adding your accessories.
