Get ready to party

Do you have long, short or curly hair? Celebrity hairstylist and author Rochelle Mosley gives her hair tips on how to look drop dead gorgeous this holiday season.

Whether she's styling Serena Williams' hair at her Harlem-based Salon 804 or promoting her book How To Do Your Hair At Home, Rochelle Mosley is a true hairstyling force that lives and breathes beauty.

The recipient of The Oprah Winfrey Show's Golden Scissors Award sat down with us to discuss what hairstyle to rock at holiday parties this season.

Long curly or long straight hair

"A Princess Leia bun is a super cute style to rock for the holidays because all you need to do is part your hair down the middle, secure each section with a rubber band, twist each side up and pin up on both sides with bobby pins," she says. "Instead of two, you can pull your hair to the side and have one side bun."

If you're looking to keep your hair down, Mosley recommends the following: "For long hair, pull it to a side ponytail and accessorize with your favorite clip."

Tip: We suggest pairing this style with a strapless dress and a dangling earring for that Hollywood glamour look.

Short curly or short straight hair

"If you have shoulder length hair, wear your hair half up by parting your hair down the middle," Mosley says. "Grab one to two inches of hair in the front of your head on both sides and twist backwards by pinning on both sides."

Tip: Try Barry Fletcher's Lasting Desire Holding Spray and add a fun rhinestone clip to secure the hair.

The bob

"Funk a straight-hair bob up with a cute colorful clip-on hair piece," she says. "Clip on your bangs to really make a statement or clip right behind the hair."

Tip: If you're not quite ready to rock the colored hair piece, try these colored feathers for that edgy rocker holiday look.

No matter your hair type, you will be sure to impress any boss, co-worker, friend or crush this holiday season with these easy hair styling tips. It's time to show off, ladies!

some accounts just have the father and Dzhokhar arriving which would make sense because the State Department in granting tourist visas looks for family connections (such as a family) back home But other accounts have both Anzor and his wife Zubeidat Tsarnaeva arriving in April with either one or both boysOnce in the United States Anzor applied for asylum According to his sister Maret she helped him write the petition (Note that there is a : Applicants apply for refugee status if they are outside the United States; they apply for asylum once they are in the United States or at the border) But in any case a spouse and children under the age of 21 are by one parents status The rest of the family could be brought into the United States under a policy of family reunification as long as the petition is filed within two years of being granted asylum Finally the family did not emigrate from Chechnya; they were only ethnically ChechenAnzor apparently grew up in the former Soviet republic of Kyrgyzstan though he may have lived briefly in Chechnya in the early 1990s Both boys also were born in Kyrgyzstan but the family left after run-ins with government authorities and settled in a Russian region that borders Chechnya known as Dagestan (Some accounts say Tamerlan was born in Russia but traveled on a Kyrgyzstan passport) From a US immigration perspective the family came from "Russia" not a particular part of Russia Moreover of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that "everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution"At this point we do not know the case Anzor made in seeking asylum but apparently it was compelling enough to be granted Interestingly despite the relatively few ethnic Chechens have sought refuge in the United States Almut Rochowanski coordinator of programs and advocacy for the said there is no hard data but she estimates that only about 1000 Chechens are living in the United States She said Chechens have preferred to settle in Europe where there are more than 100000 refugees and the few who made it to the United States are rather spread out across the country In the case of the Tsarnaev family there were already other relatives in the United States and Canada which was probably the attraction We sought further clarification from Paul spokeswoman Moira Bagley but as usual did not receive a responseThe Pinocchio TestWhen asking provocative questions it is important to get the facts correct Paul appears to suggest that US immigration officials in granting an asylum petition from the father could have discerned that two minor children after living in the United States for a decade would eventually commit a terrorist act That would require an extraordinary amount of clairvoyance In any case the key question for immigration officials was the asylum case made by their father; the minor children had nothing to do with it Moreover Paul misidentified the region from which the Tsarnaev family emigrated The boys who allegedly turned into terrorists may have been ethnic Chechens but they did not emigrate from Chechnya Paul is a member of the ;

Siddity,I think you are right, there are a lot of other factors that go into this other than hair. Self etesem is definitely part of the equation. Personally, I really love my body! I work very hard to look the way that I do and I'm proud of the way I look. I know that I don't look like a supermodel- and I never will- but I'm okay with that. I like that I have natural curves without having plastic surgery. Can Kate Moss say that? LOL! Also, having someone in your life who will tell you that you're beautiful or that You look hot does help- AND may even serve as motivation (I may blog about that at some point). So you're very lucky in that regard Sid. I also realize that this is me and that not everyone woman- black or white- is going to be as comfortable in their skin as I am. The media and the BC don't help either. I find it very ironic that the BC praises BW for having curves (booties and butts) and then chastises us for getting too heavy. We can't win. So the first step is loving and accepting you, then everything else will come into play. Moreover, you have to find a work out plan that works for you. I like hitting the gym, it's the only place I can really focus on my fitness. I also really like doing cardio, everyone else I know hates it, LOL! On the other hand, I don't like outdoor activities like jogging or swimming, they just don't do it for me. If the gym isn't working for you, than you've got to find something else that will. I also don't deny my cravings. I don't think it's healthy. Your cravings won't go away even if you try to ignore them so embrace them but have a limit. When you try to ignore them sometimes you end up giving in and going overboard.
