We've already showed you how to nail the perfect outfit for your office get-together, and thanks to Melissa Joan Hart, we've found the ideal seasonal hairstyle and makeup combo that's both festive and office appropriate.

To achieve her soft curls, use an inch curling iron to create loose curls. Brush them out to keep them from looking stiff. Then part the hair to the side. Use hairspray to tease slightly at the crown for extra oomph. Finish with a high-shine spray like SHOW Beauty's Premiere Finishing Spray.
As for the former Sabrina the Teenage Witch star's makeup, we're loving her crisp and clean palette. The key to office holiday party makeup is minimal sophistication. Melissa opted for a smooth and even base with an ever-so-slight touch of a peachy glow on the apples of her cheeks. Instead of going for the obvious holiday trend of glittery eyeshadow, Melissa chose full and luxurious lashes to brighten her peepers. To get a similar flirty look, try Kiss Premium Eyelashes, available at your drugstore. Finally, to add just a touch of color to her look without going too bold, the star applied a soft coral (yes, coral!) lip color. If you have fair skin like Melissa, we suggest a sumptuous shade like Coral Berry from Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipcolor collection.
Take a cue from Sabrina—errr, Melissa—and look magically simple this holiday season!
