Welcome Andrew to StyleSeat

StyleSeat welcomes a new member, Andrew Dempsey, to the team! Andrew joins us all the way from Scarborough, North Yorkshire in the United Kingdom. He attended school at The University of Sheffield and majored in Electronics. Andrew has over 15 years of technical data product leadership experience in Business Intelligence and Analytics, across multiple business functions and markets. Some of his most valued skills include data product management, data strategy, and data flow and processing; he seems to really likes data! In fact, his highschool nickname growing up was ‘Data’, as in ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’.

In his free time, Andrew enjoys learning something new each and every day. He is an avid crossfit member, partakes in various forms of photography, and sets aside time to read daily. We’re very excited to have Andrew come on board as the Director of Data Analytics and we’re eager to implement his expertise to continue to improve and grow our product!!

Welcome Seth to the StyleSeat Team!

We’re very excited to welcome a new member to our StyleSeat team: Seth Warrick. Seth is from Fort Calhoun, Nebraska- a small town of 900 just 20 miles outside of Omaha. He studied Communication Design at Parsons in NYC and has previously worked as a web designer and brand manager at various successful companies. Seth is joining us as Senior Designer and we’re so happy to have him onboard. He will be applying his amazing aesthetic and ninja design skills to the StyleSeat experience across web and mobile.

In addition to his love for product design (especially at the intersection of human interaction and brand), he has spent substantial time working as a photographer and has periodically dabbled in film. The only thing that rivals his fascination with and around the design world is his love of music, where you can find him producing and deejaying alongside friends. Seth also loves traveling and does so whenever possible, wherever possible. So again, please join us in welcoming him to StyleSeat!

Holiday Party Hairstyles & Accessories

Gear up for the holiday season with these party-perfect ideas!


Braids are so in, no matter the occasion. Try a crown braid over the top of your head that connects down to a low bun for a creative and sophisticated look. Plus, it’s the perfect style to last all day so you can transform from day to night.

High Bun

You can easily dress a high bun up or down. This style is simple, yet so classy for a holiday party. Change it up for your many holiday parties by adding a sparkly hairpin.

Waves will add volume to any hair type and they look great with an LBD. Spice up your party attire with gorgeous, flowy waves or add loose curls to a high, sleek ponytail.

Hair Color

A deep red color is absolutely stunning for this time of year. Use a dark red temporary color (or even clip-in strands) on a few pieces of the underside of your hair. Then try pinning some of your hair back for a subtle, yet fabulous look.

Hair Accessories

Glam up any style with some bling. Adding accessories to your hair will dress up any style. Try a glittery headband, a jeweled hair clip, or a festive hair tie.

Diamonds are a girls best friend! Statement necklaces or dangling earrings can add a lot to your holiday outfit. With an up-do, try a sparkling chandelier earring. Dress up a more simple neckline or outfit with a large, statement necklace. Try experimenting with different jewelry to make every party outfit unique.

Winter Furs

During these cold winter nights, fur fits the bill. Try grabbing something faux-fur lined, like a scarf, gloves, or shawl. Look festive (and cozy) by draping a fur coat over your dress while traveling to and from your holiday parties.
