8 Extra Festive Hairstyles for the Holidays

Read more on cute winter hairstyles that seamlessly transition from night to morning, and make you look the coolest one in the room!

  • Intricate Updo with a Velvet Ribbon
    Incorporate a velvet ribbon by weaving it into a loose braid before twisting and and pinning it into an updo. A charming style, with a vintage touch.
  • Soft Brushed-Out Curls
    The big sister to beachy waves, brushed-out curls are a softer, more romantic holiday hairstyle for curly hair.
  • Crown Braid
    Try a royal twist on a typical braid with a wraparound crown. Bonus- this style has staying power and will look just as good at your holiday brunch the next day.
  • Loose Curls
    Big loose curls work especially well if you've got a lot of texture in your hair. Place a sparkly barrette vertically behind one ear.
  • Fishtail Ponytail
    Throwing a fishtail braid into your ponytail is another easy way to glam up an everyday hairstyle. Use a velvet ribbon to tie off the ends of your braid.
  • French Twist
    The french twist is officially back this season with a modern, slightly undone version. Keep your messy twist in place with bobby pins.
  • Tight Pony
    A tight ponytail keeps you looking chic and put together. Add an extension or hairpiece for a voluminous statement pony.
  • Pin-Straight Center Part
    This hairstyle references the 90s with a classic middle part and serious volume at the crown. Pair it with a brown lipstick to complete the throwback party look.

Festive Holiday Hair Accessories

Deck your hair with the season’s must-have accessories. Here are our favorites for keeping strands in place.

  • Hair Ties
    Hair ties make ponytail-induced breakage and scalp pain a thing of the past.
  • Gold and Silver Barrettes
    Gold and silver barrettes are multitasking accessories that work to both glam and hold up your strands.
  • Skinny Barrettes
    Mix and match layers of skinny barrettes and bobby pins onto the side of any hairstyle for an embellished twist.
  • Hair Jewellery
    Adding dainty hair jewellery in gold finishes with rhinestones and pearls make any hairstyle look a little more dressed up.
