Holiday Hairstyle Ideas

Whether you’re embracing a white winter in the north or a breezy one in the south, holiday cheer has finally arrived! The holidays are sure to look a little different this year, but there are still styling opportunities.Dressing up for a Christmas zoom or a New Year’s Eve with your pandemic pod is reason enough to get those tresses looking effortlessly chic.

The holidays can be stressful enough, so we’ve come up with some gorgeous seasonal styles for you. It’s one less thing you have to worry about as you scrounge for some last-minute gifts. These are our favorite holiday looks for 2020!

Reindeer Braids

We’re starting with the easiest style on this list. It’s one of those looks that you can keep in your back pocket for times when you are in a rush. It also works on any hair texture and almost any length (you just need to have enough hair to braid). Using a middle part, twist your face-framing tendrils into thin braids. Then, pin them to the back of your head towards your neck. Our favorite way to style these braids is with smooth ironed tresses and a spritz of hair mist.

Merry Micro Fringe

This look is perfect for the holidays and ultra-chic. If you’re feeling bold, you can give yourself some glamorous micro fringe (also known as baby bangs). This style was popular back in the 50s-60s, with stars like Audrey Hepburn modeling them. And they’ve made a comeback, probably because they do wonders for face-framing and cheekbone highlighting. If you get them, you’ll need to use a dryer to blow them dry and use a light, flexible hairspray to style them properly.

Festive Swoop

We’ve seen tons of celebrities rocking swoop bangs lately, and it’s a style that looks good on just about everyone. The best thing about swoop bangs? You don’t need to have any fringe to create them! You can make the illusion of side bangs by gelling your locks in a deep side part and pinning the length behind your ear. If your hair is naturally curly or wavy, be sure to iron the hair you’ll be swooping with a styler. The differentiating textures make for a glam fashion moment.

Ribbon Curls

These billowing ribbon curls create a retro look that oozes timeless beauty. It’s how old Hollywood stars would have styled their tresses before a holiday cocktail party. You can achieve this style by curling sections of your hair inwards and pinning the curls to your head. Keep in mind that medium to short hairstyles work the best. If you’ve got a long mane, you can always style the hair framing your face and pull the rest back. A wide-barrel curler will make your hair look more voluminous. Finisher is a must if you want to keep the curls intact.

Oversized Holiday Headband

Holiday fashion pairs so well with headbands, and oversized headbands are wickedly on trend this season. Because the headband is bulky, you’ll want a sleek and manicured look to pair with it. A low ponytail with a middle part is the perfect way to style this type of hair accessory. We suggest using a titanium straightener on your locks before you slip them into a low elastic. Use a touch of finisher to ensure those strands stay sleek. Finisher also adds texture, which keeps the headband in place.
