Tis the season for fun and festive Holiday hairstyles, right? Every time I have a holiday party, ugly sweater day at work, or virtual gift exchange, I have to have a holiday hairstyle! In this post I’m sharing styles, that are super simple, but look so good for any holiday occasion!
I started these looks with clean hair. I have been using Philip Kingsley shampoo and conditioner for months now and absolutely love it! I towel dried my hair and added the Maximizer Strand Plumping Cream before blow drying the rest of it. They have the prettiest gift boxes, so if you are looking for a gift for a hair care lover, check out Philip Kingsley! After washing my hair, I curled it with my Drybar 3 Day Bender curling iron.
5 HOLIDAY HAIRSTYLES FOR LONG HAIR:
For this first Holiday hairstyle, I just pull my hair into a ponytail at the base of my neck. Make sure the top of your hair is smooth. Then I take some twine or string and wrap it around a bobby pin several times. Slide the bobby pin under your ponytail and start wrapping the string around your ponytail. Once you get to the end of the string, use another Bobby pin to secure the string at the bottom of the ponytail or, into the middle of the ponytail.
Little Back with a Bow
For this next simple look start on the either side of the middle of your head and circle around the crown of your head. Meet in the back and secure with a rubber band. Next we tie the ribbon around the ponytail.
Make sure you have a few bobby pins on hand for this next style. We’ll be creating a side twist. Start by with the front pieces of your hair. Twist the pieces of hair away from your face, and pick up small sections as you go. Stop when you get to the back of your head and pin down with bobby pins. Pull out pieces to make the twist look larger and grab a decorative clip to cover.
I was a ballerina for more than sixteen years and during that time, I perfected the ballerina bun. Pull back your hair into a low ponytail, slightly above the base of your neck. Split your hair into two sections and put one to the side. Start twisting and swing your hair around your ponytail across the top to the other side then stop. Put a few bobby pins in to secure it into place. Next, take the other half and start twisting around and swing around the bottom of the ponytail. Then continue twisting the first section around the outside of the other layer, and pinning as you go. wrap each section inch by inch and continue along until each section is fully pinned and wrapped! You can adorn the bun however you want with decorative pins, a ribbon, scrunchie, or anything else you wish!
This last style is one of my favorites! I love the classic low ponytail look, so pull your hair back again at the base of my neck and secure with a rubberband. Grab mini ornaments and slide the end through a bobby-pin. Take the bobby pin and push it vertically into your ponytail.
