Christmas Hairstyles to Wear on Noche Buena

Get your hair ready for various holiday gatherings. Here are Christmas hairstyles to try. 

Christmas is almost here! In a matter of days, you’ll be sitting down with your family at your dining table on Christmas Eve. You’ll be passing around servings of your favorite holiday dishes while your younger siblings insist on opening the presents already. When you’re staying at home to celebrate, an elaborate hairstyle doesn’t seem practical, right? We’re not saying, though, that you shouldn’t glam up. Keep your hair down and still look stunning on this special day with these Christmas hairstyles. If you have long, thick hair, the down ‘do can even make you feel warm and cozy amidst the cool Christmas air.

In a hurry? Don’t have time to style your hair for noche buena? Quickly jazz it up by wearing a sparkly hair clip. Choose one that has studs or small pearls to liven up your hair with minimal effort. Then, scrunch your hair to add volume and body and voila! You’re ready!

You can also mix and match different hair clips to create a playful Christmas hairstyle. Just make sure your clips complement each other in shape, style, or color to create a cohesive look. You don’t want to look like your Christmas tree, do you?

3. Baby Braid

Braid a little section of your hair to add a festive touch to your down ‘do. You can even wrap a ribbon around your elastic to make your hairstyle more appealing. How about a red or green ribbon for that Christmas look, yes?

4. Bouncy Blowout

If you have a bit more time before noche buena, grab your hairdryer and do a bouncy blowout. If you have long, layered hair, this hairstyle can help define your layers while adding volume to your tresses. It’s perfect for a simple but elegant Christmas feast that you’ll be enjoying with your family.

5. Romantic Curls

Now is the time to try the curling iron that you bought using your Christmas bonus! Creating romantic curls is easy. First, divide your hair into top and bottom sections. Clip the top. Then, take a small section of hair from the unclipped part, wrap it around your iron for a few seconds, then release. If you want tighter, more defined curls, get smaller sections and wrap each around the barrel curler for a bit longer. This hairstyle will make you look glammed up even if you’re just wearing a comfy sweater and jeans—perfect for a stay-at-home holiday feast.

6. Simple Straight Hair

If you’re not into fancy hairstyles for Christmas Eve, you’ll never go wrong with a straight down ‘do. In fact, straight, frizz-free hair looks styled even if you don’t do much. Keep your hair this way by using hair products that fight frizz and make your hair soft and smooth.

You can blow dry your hair to make it straight but still retaining some bounce, or you can create a glamorously straight hairstyle using a flat iron.

Editor’s tip: Say goodbye to annoying frizz and flyaways. Wash your hair with TRESemmé Ultimate Straight & Shine Shampoo and TRESemmé Ultimate Straight & Shine Conditioner. These products have Shea butter oil and Vitamin H to help moisturize your hair and keep it salon-gorgeous. 

7. Pinned back waves

This toned-down version of romantic curls is just as chic. You can even create waves without using heated styling tools. When done creating waves, comb the upper section of your hair back starting from your hairline and pin it. You can even use trendy hair clips for a fun-looking ‘do.

Editor’s tip: For long-lasting waves, spritz TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray on your hair. 

With these Christmas hairstyles, getting ready for your family gathering will surely be quick and hassle-free. Just a few basic hairstyling techniques, and you’ll be all set. This shows that leaving your hair down doesn’t mean leaving it bland and boring.
