    Have yourself a very joyeux noel this year by creating a classic French twist. Adorn with a crystal brooch or clip to complete the look. Twist the hair tightly before clipping it into place and you’ll have an updo that stays up longer than you do. 

    Short and Sassy

    Glam up short hairstyles with a nod to the roaring ’20s. Whether you have a geometric bob or a pixie cut, there are so many ways to dress it up. Recreate kiss curls at the forehead or sides of the ears with hair oil, or straighten your bob to recreate the classic flapper look. 

    Undone and Fun

    Looking for a classic style that will take you from brunch to the Christmas party dance floor without needing a retouch? The undone bun is a one-stop style that looks effortlessly chic and needs minimal maintenance. Spritz with a little hairspray to secure your style in place.

    A tousled fishtail braid looks great on long and mid-length hair. This style may take a little time to master but the result is so worth it. Add shimmer and sparkle to your look by weaving gold or silver thread into your hair as you braid it. 

    Chignon Chic

    Give the straighteners a break this holiday season by opting for a chic chignon style that stays in place all night. Secure your tresses at the nape of your neck into a relaxed low bun. Step up your sparkle game by adding a luxe hairpin or two.

    Sectioned ponies, also known as bubble ponies are so easy to achieve and add a touch of glamour to the classic pony style. Simply create a low or high pony and then add sparkly hair bands to create sections, pulling the hair out a little as you go to create the bubble effect. 

    The Statement Braid

    A statement braid can complete your party look and protect your tresses from the elements and dry or humid environments. Try a halo braid for a romantic style that never goes off-trend. Add sparkling crystals to catch the light as you move. 

    Effortlessly Tousled

    When you’re short on time but don’t want to compromise on style, the tousled bedhead look is your go-to party friend. Grab your favorite styling gel, wax or curl cream, turn your head upside down and run your fingers through every strand. 

    Pump Up the Volume

    Nothing says party season like a big and bouncy blow dry. To achieve serious volume, blow dry your hair upside down focusing on the roots to create a voluminous finish that will stay true for hours. 

    You Wear the Crown

    Perfect for short, medium and long hair, a gold or silver crown-like headband creates a majestic style and keeps your hair off your face. Wear your headband at the forehead to give off some serious Greek goddess vibes. Secure in place with some bobby pins. 

    Chandelier Updo

    An exaggerated topknot, beehive or bouffant is the perfect blank canvas for some serious sparkle. Simply create your updo and adorn it with garlands of crystals crisscrossing as you go to create a spectacular effect reminiscent of vintage chandeliers. 

    Bangs For Days

    Now is the perfect time for a new holiday winter hairstyle. From curtain bangs to a blunt fringe, bangs shape your face and look as good with a short style as they do with a high pony. Bangs also look great peeping from under a beanie hat long after the party season is over. 

    Finishing Touches for Holiday Hairstyles

    Everything should have a little extra sparkle and glamour during the holiday season, your hair included. Adding a stack of diamante hair clips, a dusting of gold glitter or a luxe sparkly hair band will make your holiday hairstyle dazzle.
