10 Holiday Hairstyles to Inspire You

Keep reading to get inspired by the hottest trends of the season, styled in a way that is fit for the holiday season.

1. Balletcore Updo

This understated updo is perfect for any holiday occasion.

Channel the balletcore trend into your holiday looks with an elevated ballerina-inspired updo. Create a center part in your hair and use a hairbrush to comb the hair back into a high ponytail. Coil the ponytail around the base of the style and use bobby pins to secure the bun. This style depends on an undone finish, so skip the styling products and let it shine as-is.

2. High Shine Lob

Add a high shine finish to your style.

Prep your hair with Dove Hair Therapy Brilliant Gloss Repair + Ceramide Serum to ensure a high-shine finish. This ceramide-infused formula is ideal for damaged and color-treated hair but works well for all hair types! A shiny style is perfect for the holiday season.

3. Feathered Ends

Add some easy movement to your style.

Roughly blow-dry your hair to recreate this laidback style. Channel your blow-dry skills into styling your curtain bangs and leave the rest roughly dried for easy texture. Pair this relaxed style with a fancy accessory like a pearl necklace to make the style holiday party-friendly.

4. Easy Volume

The beauty of the sleek low ponytail is just how versatile it is. Create a center part on day two or three hair and comb your strands back into a low ponytail. Use a hair tie that’s the same color as your hair to create a super seamless look.

6. Twisted Updo

This Pinterest-worthy updo is all about the twists and pins. Make sure to pull out some face-framing strands before you secure the style for an overall soft and chic style. Finish with a mist of hairspray like TRESemmé TRES Two Ultra Fine Hair Mist to keep the style in place all night long.

7. Red Bow

This pop of red is super trendy.

Red is officially the color of the season! Wearing a red bow in your hair is a low-stakes way to get in on the trend. To recreate this style, use a 1-inch curling iron to add loose waves to your hair. Brush through the curls to soften them, and tie your hair back in a ponytail before finishing it off with a bow.

8. Understated Headband
