Fishtail Braids

Something about a fishtail braid screams holiday cheer, especially when styled in an updo with added details. This braid can either be made polished and pristine or as messy and wild as you prefer.

Upside Down Braid

Incorporating a braid into your festive hairdo shows off your holiday spirit. Take your braiding skills to the next level and try an upside down braid. It adds great detail and a dash of texture to your high pony or perfectly undone topknot.

Faux Bob

Maybe it is the holiday season or the new year approaching, but does anyone else have a strong urge to chop off their hair and start fresh? If you have long locks and are deciding whether or not to go short, this may be the style for you. The faux bob gives you a shoulder-length cut for the evening without committing to a whole new style.

Twisted Updo

The twisted updo is simple to achieve, yet still allows you to play around and be as original as possible. Add a pop of texture with braids or a mixture of smaller and larger twists.
