The holiday season is well underway and while most are concentrating on finding the perfect gifts for everyone on their list, some of us are brainstorming fun and creative ways to add some fun and festive flair to our holiday hairstyles. Here we’ve put together some ideas to do just that easily and without busting your holiday shopping budget. With a few unconventional accessories, you can create a hairstyle that’s sure to be a conversation starter at all of your holiday get-togethers this year.
Braids of all kinds are one of the hottest hair trends of the season. You can use this idea to jazz up any braid you choose, but we love the look in a classic French braid. You’ll need a simple blinking LED light necklace, or two if you want double braids. If your hair is shorter, pin or clip the center of the necklace at the top of your braid and incorporate the strand into two sections of your braid. For longer hair secure the necklace at the end and weave it into a single section.
A slim strand of tinsel garland makes the perfect addition to a simple twist. Use a bobby pin to hold the end of the tinsel at the base of your twist and let it add a strip of fun holiday color and sparkle to your style.
Festive Crown And Curls
You’ll look like the Spirit of Christmas Past with a festive poinsettia or holly crown atop your luscious curls. Start with Leaf and Flower CBD Instant Frizz Remedy to ensure that your curls stay smooth, then simply curl your hair in the way you prefer and adorn yourself with a lovely seasonal floral crown. It’s as easy as that. Add a strand of battery-operated white led lights to the crown for even more holiday charm.
Buns are glamorous and beautiful on their own, but when they glisten like freshly fallen snow they are even more special. Create a sleek or slightly messy bun, whichever is your preference, and then stud it with some tiny snowflake pins. Finish with a sheer glitter hair spray to give it that spectacular frosty sparkle.
Ribbons And Bows
The ribbons and bows need not stay on the gifts. You can have fun with them in your hair. Whether you choose a half-up style with a simple ribbon bow, an impressive bow made of your own hair, or ribbons interwoven into beautiful braids the options here are limitless. Have as much fun with it as you do wrapping the gifts. If you’re creating a hair bow you’ll need Davines This Is An Extra Strong Hair Spray to keep it in place.
DIY Tinsel Hair Extensions
All you need for this look is flat ironed strands, some tinsel, and some replacement hair extension tape. You will stick some strands of tinsel onto the tape to create your “extensions”. Then part your hair in various places and tape your tinsel in place. Trim the tinsel to match the length of your hair, being very cautious to not catch your hair with the scissors. Gently finger comb to smooth everything into place and spritz with Davines This Is A Shimmering Mist for extra shine and to keep flyaways at bay.
Waterfalls And Holly
A simple and elegant waterfall braid is easy to dress up with any season accessory you choose, but we love the look with some beautiful holly hair clips on the sides or in the center back. Weave a small glittery red ribbon into the braid to give it an even more festive look. Use Davines This Is A Dry Texturizer to add a gorgeous texture to your style.
