A sweet bouffant, when done right, can look stunningly chic and sophisticated. And if you're stumped on what kind of updo to try this holiday, a simple, high-volume style can be your ultimate go-to. Bring the style into modern times à la Naomi Watts by keeping your face framed with loose sideswept pieces. After teasing your hair at the crown, smooth it back into a bun, leaving a few pieces free around your face. Smooth them over with a flat iron and mist with a shine spray, like Big Sexy Hair Shine Spray ($16). Keep your makeup palette simple, with inky black liner and a glossy pink lipstick, and you'll be sophisticated and set for the holidays.
Earlier this year, January Jones surprised the world with pink highlights in her blond hair, but now she has gone for a darker hair change. Recently, the Mad Men star was spotted with a new brunette hair color. Is the new color just an update according to the season or is it for a film role? That is yet to be seen. But the deeper color (and matching brows) does bring out the best in her fair complexion. Are you loving this deep brunette hue on January, or do you prefer the bright blond look?

If you're into nail art but have a shaky hand, don't stress for even a second. Revlon's nail art stencils ($5) make creating your own nail designs at home a cinch. The pack comes with 10 individual stencils, so you can create a look for all your digits, or you can use a couple at a time to create an embellished accent nail.
I opted for the curved heart design, which I placed at the base of my nail. All you have to do is adhere the stencil to dry polished nails and apply a generous coat of a contrasting lacquer. After you've polished over the stencil, pull off gently while the varnish is still wet, and admire your handiwork. Interested? Hurry to the drugstore and nab your own limited-edition stencils while supplies last.
