Holiday Hair Ideas: 20 Chic Looks to Consider This Season
1. Classic Bun
Buns are easy to turn into a glam holiday look. Gather your hair into a ponytail, then loop the ends into a bun. To maintain a cheerful shine for the holidays, spray Bed Head by TIGI Headrush Shine Hairspray.
2. Textured Side Braid
Not one of your average holiday hairstyles, right? Take the risk with a hairstyle that is totally unexpected. To update the look for your holiday festivities, slide gilded bobby pins into the mix.
3. Braid Accessories
Clips and embellished headbands are so passé; this season, it’s all about hair jewels. Rock the night away with a braid amped up with a pretty set of hair piercings or jewels.
4. Pull-Through Ponytail
If you want a standout hairstyle, then this one is definitely for you! Tip: Try to get hair ties that are clear or close to your hair color to add to the optical illusion of this style.
5. Voluminous Low Ponytail
Create a holiday low pony by giving it some volume. A little teasing and gentle backcombing will create the sophisticated style you’re after.
6. Voluminous Half-Updo
This half-updo demands attention and helps give a slight “face lift” for a more intense look. Spray your style with a hairspray like Dove Style+Care Strength & Shine Flexible Hold Hairspray for flexible hold and you’re ready to have a holly jolly time!
7. Half-Updo Knot
For those who don’t want a high half-updo, you can add some spice by creating a looser knot in the back.
8. Tousled Waves
Tousled waves are always a go-to because they add the perfect amount of texture. If you want to create this style, we recommend styling hair in braids or rollers the night before so hair has more grit to it on the day-of.
9. French Twists
More of a classic holiday hair ideas gal? Why not go for the chic and elegant French twist style?
10. Crown Braid
The crown braid is undeniably a fan favorite—it’s the style less chosen since it takes a little more effort, but the end result is always worth it.
11. Deep Parted Afro
Sometimes all you need to do is switch up your part and suddenly you’ve got a whole new ‘do! Deep side parts are a holiday classic because they take you out of your everyday look.
12. Unicorn Braid
Looking for one of the more unique holiday hair ideas? The unicorn is the new, edgy braid on the scene, and is a cool way to switch up your look for the holidays.
13. Accent Braids
One of our favorite holiday hair ideas, just add some accent braids to your style for a low-key—and last-minute-friendly!—’do.
If you aren’t into creating a whole new style but still want to switch it up, add a glitzy headband to your look. It’s one of the simplest yet most effective holiday hair ideas.
15. Soft Bend
Run your curler through your hair in larger sections and only for about 5 seconds to achieve some sultry soft bends in your style.
16. Bubble Half-Updo
This is very similar to the pull-through pony, but with more mini sections to create a textured, bubble-like style. This is definitely one of the more complicated holiday hair ideas, but why not give yourself a fun challenge?
17. Sleek High Ponytail
Keep it sleek and simple. If you’re short on time then just create a high and smooth ponytail. Give it a fancy-feel by hiding the hair tie with a strip of your hair. Bonus points for a fancy New Year’s Eve outfit to match!
18. Voluminous Curls
19. Statement Hair Clip
Not into complicated styles? Have fun by adding a statement hair clip instead!
20. Accent Braid
For those who love to braid, try adding an accent French or Dutch braid to whatever look you choose.
