Easy Holiday Hair Looks & Tips

Celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with a Christmas hairstyle that will wow your friends and family. No hair salon needed.

Glossy Ponytail 

Sometimes, less is more. If you have long hair, a sleek ponytail is an easy way to create a timeless Christmas look. This classic hairstyle can easily be decorated with a festive bow, ribbon, or headband.


Curls are a beautiful way to add a touch of class to your crown. Whether you’re rocking your natural curls or need a little help from your curling iron, curls will transform your hair into a romantic Christmas ‘do.

Updos have been a staple since the towering beehives of the 1960s. Whether you’re going big or subtle, an updo can be shaped into a holiday-ready hairstyle with a little finesse—and some help from unique hair accessories.

Christmas Hair Accessories 

Who says the decorations have to stop at your Christmas tree? 

Adorn your hair for the holidays with fun garlands, bows, ribbons, and bands for a fun holiday hair-do that will surely have heads turning. Decorating your hair with accessories will also give your hair a much-needed break from damaging hot tools.

New Year’s Eve Hair Styles

New year, new ‘do. Ring in the new year with some bling. Try any of these easy New Year’s Eve hairstyles for a fun pop of glitz and glamour. 


Take your hair to tinsel town this holiday season and make your crown shine. Whether you’re using rhinestones, sequins, or gems, these unique glitzy hair accessories are the perfect addition to your New Year’s look. 


Grace Kelly once said, “The pearl is the queen of gems and the gem of queens.” People have been wearing pearls for centuries. This timeless gem has most notably been worn as a necklace, but what about as a hair accessory? Dress up your locks with as many pearls as you like for a classy holiday look.


If you’re sporting a low bun, ponytail, or updo this New Year’s, then add a ribbon or two decorated with jewels for a stand-out look. Depending on your taste, these jewels can be as big or small as you want.


What’s New Year’s without glitter? Throw some sparkle into your hair and make your locks shine like a firework. Hair glitter is a low-effort holiday hairstyle that makes a huge statement. Simply spray as you’d like throughout your hair, and bam—your New Year’s hairstyle is complete.

Quick Holiday Hairstyles

The holidays are fun—but they can also be exhausting. 

Between decorating, wrapping, cooking, and hosting, it seems like there’s no time to even think about your hairstyle. Luckily, you don’t have to put in a lot of effort to create a beautiful holiday hairstyle.

Loose Braids

Long, loose braids are versatile and can easily be dressed up or down. Loose holiday braids give your locks a soft, romantic appearance without much effort. 

Half-Up, Half-Down 

Can’t decide between loose hair and an updo? Get the best of both worlds with a half-up, half-down hairstyle. Top knots and waterfall braids are some of the most popular half-up, half-down Christmas hairstyles.

Low Buns & Ponytails

Pressed on time? Try a low bun or ponytail. Like loose braids, a low bun or ponytail can convey the same romantic holiday look you’re wanting to achieve without the need to block out a significant amount of time.
