Holiday parties are just around the corner and there's no better time to start thinking about your look. Your hairstyle can quickly take your look from everyday to holiday-ready. Below, we've sharing a few of our favorite holiday hair ideas that will work for all of your upcoming events, from an afternoon office party to dinner with family and friends.
Keep It Simple
If ponytails and braids are your go-to look from day to day, you can stay in your comfort zone while adding some fun to your look. Try a new braid style like the fishtail or the waterfall. Even a simple ponytail can get a holiday update.
Start by sectioning your hair with a horizontal part. Pull up the back section into a normal ponytail. Then, split the front section into a right section and left section. Pull back the right section, wrap it around the ponytail, and secure with bobby pins. Repeat with the left section. You'll have a ponytail with more volume and a fun twist detail.
Pump Up The Volume
Channel your inner classic Hollywood star by adding volume to your hairstyle. Using a root lifter and volumizing spray, you can bring your normal hairstyle up to a new level. For a new look, try a deep side part. Add root lifter and tease the hair at the crown of your head. Then, pull the hair over, to create faux side bangs, and pin the hair back with bobby pins.
Create A Quick Updo
A quick braid and a simple chignon will give you an updo that will look like it took much longer. Start with a braid along the crown of your head and secure the end with bobby pins behind your ear. Then, gather up the rest of your hair and put it into a messy chignon by twisting and wrapping pieces and securing them with pins as you go.
Add Glitz And Glam
When it comes to holiday hair, details are everything. Add some sparkle to your look to get into the festive mood. A beaded headband can add something special to ponytails and braids, while jeweled clips can be used in place of simple bobby pins. This is the perfect time of year to step up your accessory game and choose fun pieces that may seem too lavish for everyday use.
