During the holiday season, there are a handful of opportunities to shine—but, not just with festive outfits and glittery makeup. Rather, the holidays are the perfect time to amp up your hairstyle and try something new. From glamorous updos and playful braids to elegant waves and classy buns, the opportunities are practically endless. To help you embrace all the beauty opportunities this season has to offer, we curated a list of the 10 cutest, easiest, and most versatile hairstyles for any and every holiday celebration.
Whether you’re attending a glamorous soirée, hosting a cozy gathering, or simply looking to elevate your everyday look this winter, these hairstyles will effortlessly elevate your look.
1. Sleek bun with feathers
This super easy low bun has a super glam and trendy twist, thanks to the addition of fluttery white feathers. All you have to do is take a strand of feathers, bobby pin them, and twist them into your hair while you wrap your bun. How easy is that?
2. Curly bun with headband
If you’re running low on time, a high bun with a headband is always a put-together yet effortless style. Just style your hair into a high bun, toss on a headband, and you’ll be ready to go. We encourage you to embrace your natural hair texture and pull out some face-framing pieces, too.
3. Half-up with satin bow
It’s a fact: A satin bow makes anything look polished and classic. This season, add one to your half-up hairstyle when you’re in a pinch but still want it to seem like you put a lot of time and thought into your look. Pro tip: Switch up which color bow you wear depending on your outfit.
4. Loose waves with sparkly pins
Want to wear your hair down but add a little oomph? Opt for sparkly hairpins. You can place them anywhere, but we love when they are front and center. The best part of this style? You can throw a few pins in when you’re en route to the party. No mirror necessary.
5. Defined curls with a side part
Side parts are in right now, so count on them to make your style stand out. Defined curls add an element of glam that can be taken from casual holiday get-togethers all the way to your company party.
6. Low bun with pearl accents
Don’t have time to heat style your hair? Went too many days without washing? No problem. Pull your hair to the nape of your neck, secure it with a hair tie and some pins, and throw in a handful of pearl or jeweled accents.
7. Low pigtails
Pigtails are a playful hairstyle that we will never get sick of. They are easy, unexpected, and fun to wear, no matter where your holiday plans take you. If you want to spice them up, secure them with fun hair ties.
8. Braided claw clip bun
Big claw clip gal? Us too. Take things up a notch by pulling your hair back into a ponytail, braiding it, wrapping it into a bun, and securing it with a claw clip to look like the ultimate cool girl.
9. Textured low ponytail
This textured, effortless ponytail is the hairstyle of our dreams, and it’s extremely easy to achieve. Start by giving your hair a little bit of texture with a texturizing spray and separating face-framing layers. Then, loosely pull your hair back into a ponytail and hide your hair tie by wrapping and pinning your hair around it.
10. ’90s blowout
The It-Girl hairstyle of the year must make its debut this holiday season. Achieve this easy, trending look one of two ways: sleep in rollers or use a blowdry brush.
