With Halloween securely in the rearview mirror, the holiday season -- and all that comes with it -- is absolutely here. Soon, every public landscape is sure to be draped in twinkly lights, shimmery evergreen trees, red cups from Starbucks, and metallic wrapping paper. Not to mention all the trappings of Thanksgiving, from pumpkin pies to Black Friday sale guides. 

One of the most beloved aspects of the season is, of course, getting together with loved ones, co-workers, and old friends to celebrate over delicious comfort food and merry-making cocktails. But for many of these occasions, dressing up isn't exactly optional.

From low ponytails to outrageously pretty braids that look far more complicated to achieve than they actually are, hair tutorials all over the Internet have harried, exhausted women covered during the festive season!
