Now that he's proposed, it's time to start planning your engagement party — and perhaps just as important, your engagement-party hair. Help is here! Read on as New York City hairstylist Harry Josh gives you the step-by-steps for three party-ready styles — all perfect to show off that new diamond ring.

First, prep wet hair with a frizz-fighting serum. (This helps keep everything sleek and flyaway-free.) Then, blow-dry your hair straight using a boar bristle brush. Pull your hair up into a high ponytail, securing with an elastic. Twist the ponytail around the elastic, wrap into a bun, and pin into place. Finish with hairspray for a result similar to Olivia Munn's 'do.

Spray damp hair with with a volumizing spray to add tons of body to get a look like our former cover girl Olivia Palermo. Josh likes John Frieda Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blowout Spray ($10; available at Ulta). Next, blow-dry your hair in sections with a large round brush. Once it's all dry, wrap your hair around a 1.5-inch curling iron, going section by section. At the end, gently brush out the curls, then flip hair over, and spritz with a light-hold hair spray for a final boost of volume.

Pulled Back with a Sparkly Barrette
First, prep hair with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner. After your shower, apply heat-protecting spra to damp hairy, then blow-dry it in sections using your fingers. (You want a slightly messy, undone look.) Next, part your hair in the center and grab a two one-inch piece from one side of your face. Loosely pull it back and secure with a pretty glittery clip like Lauren Conrad did.
