The Christmas holidays are almost here and people are doing their best to cope with all the preparations. They have to buy presents, organize holiday trips, prepare the Christmas supper, or all of these combined. If you are one of these people who have a lot of thing in their plate before Christmas, then we suggest you start doing all the things earlier. This way you will manage on time and you will have time for yourself as well.
Even if you have a lot of things to do, you should also not forget to look at your best during the holidays. That is why we have prepared for you some ideas for holiday hairstyles. So, if you are having some holiday celebration with your colleague, or if you are celebrating New year’s eve and you need a special hairstyle to match your outfit, but you still cannot decide, here are some ideas to inspire you.
#1 Do not forget about hair jewelry
This season’s holiday hairstyles are the ones which have hair jewelry in them or at least some kind of hair accessory. There are some New Year’s tiaras with the number of the upcoming year on top. Or you can get a Christmas one with something like “Marry Christmas” on it. Of course, such tiaras are more party-like. If you are with friends it is OK to wear them, but if you are celebrating with your colleagues, I hardly believe that you would want your boss to see you wearing such a tiara.
For more of an elegant kind of look, choose a head band, like the ones which were popular at the time of the Great Gatsby, in the 1920s. It could be a satin black headband with some big stone in the center of it, which to be the centerpiece of your hairstyle.
#2 A flower in your hair
Even though a hairstyle with a flower in the hair is often though to be a hairstyle suitable for the warmer months of the year, when flowers bloom. However, on Christmas and New year’s eve you can break the rules, and complement your outfit with a beautiful flower as a part of your hairstyle. If the party you are going to has a special theme, you can match the color of the flower with it, like white, gray, or sparkling. As for the rest of your hair, it is best if you have some big loose curls. The flower could be even attached to a headband, this way you will be able to secure it more easily.
#3 High Ponytail
This is one of the most elegant hairstyles if executed properly. This hairstyle will also add length to your look. You need to make sure that all of your hair is sleeked back. You will probably need a lot of bobby pins to catch all those small sections of hair around your ears and hairline. You can also make your hair completely sleeked by using some hairspray or even some hair gel.
If you choose this hairstyle for the party, you can best match it with big long earrings. They will be matching the length of your hair, flattering your party look.
#4 Ribbon braid
If you are having a thematic party, you can choose a ribbon braid hairstyle. This way you can choose a ribbon matching the color of the theme. This kind of hairstyle is not difficult to execute, so you will not have to spend hours in front of the mirror trying to make the best of it. You will just need a long ribbon and a small elastic band.
Get the ribbon and wrap it around your head, as if it is a headband. Then tie it well on your nape. Then make a side braid including the rest of the ribbon in the braid. When you are ready, just secure it with the elastic band and your party hairstyle it done!
#5 Big curls
Since this is a big holiday, it deserves a big hairstyle as well. You should not be modest at this time of the year and go big and voluminous, especially if you have curly hair. Do not make it straight, but exaggerate your natural curls. You can use a curling iron and a hair product to help your curls stay the way you made them longer, even all night.
If you, however, have naturally straight hair, you can make more loose curls, because it will not take you that much time and it will look natural on you. Of course, you can add some more volume to your hairstyle as well. Just tease the roots of your hair a little before you start with the waves. And when you are ready do not forget to apply a reasonable amount of hairspray to fix the hairstyle.
