One of the perks of this season is the ability to add some extra glitz and glam into your wardrobe and beauty ensembles. Choose a sparkly and star-studded headband to wear on your head over wavy hair. The headband will draw attention to you—so shine, baby, shine!

Elegant Updo

For an elegant look, put your hair up and pin it back. Updos can either be messy with fallen strands strategically framing your face, or sleek with every hair in its proper place. You should choose which version of the classic updo to recreate based off of the event that you are attending. Updos show off your face and make you look extra sophisticated. This look is perfect for holiday parties and office parties.

Holiday Bow

For an ultra-feminine look, tie a ribbon in a bow and add it to your hair. You can tie the ribbon around a ponytail, a top-knot, half up and half down styles, or even as a headband. Choose whatever color matches your outfit best!

Half Up Half Down

Hairstyles that are half up and half down are playful and flirty. This style allows you to embrace the sophistication of the updo and the playfulness of mermaid hair—all at once! This style can be as simple as pinning two strands of hair from the front of your head to the back. If you have some extra time to experiment, this style can also include intricate braids and twists. This style is perfect for those who can’t commit to one distinct look or perhaps don’t want their hair to be the center of attention (hello holiday makeup!).

Go All In

If you really want to take the plunge and embrace this season, consider dying your hair to include red tones. Red is this season’s signature color and it really stands out in a crowd. Another option is to maintain your base color, but dye your tips bold and adventurous colors that you wouldn’t normally try—all in the name of the season! There is no wrong way to be festive, so you might as well use the holidays as an excuse to finally make the statement you’ve been waiting all year to make.

It’s no secret that this time of year allows us to channel our creativity into fun holiday outfits and beauty looks. Our hair can say a lot about us, so be sure to finally set aside time to experiment with these new hairstyles to show off to your friends and your family!
