If you’re still pondering over hairstyle ideas for the next few weeks of early Christmas parties and celebrations, we’re here to lend you some sparkle. We’ve got plenty of ideas – many pinched from the best celebrity ‘dos of the year – and we don’t mind sharing.
This Christmas, low maintenance glam is going to be big. It has been quite an eventful year and the general feeling is that we all need a stiff drink and a carefree holiday season to make up for it. So, expect to see lots of simple but elegant hairstyles. Think basic braids with a party twist and a return to long, straight ‘dos and hair extensions.
Keep reading for some serious style inspiration and a whole load of winter looks to die for.
The Subtle Surprise
One hair trend that seems to be catching on fast at the moment is subtle, little details – fine additions that don’t shout their presence but just add texture and interest. Check out Hailee Steinfeld on Instagram for some ideas. The singer is a master at rocking simple down ‘dos, with a little twist, braid, curl, or coil for extra cool. In fact, the mini braid is a great example of how you can do this in an easy way. Style your hair with a gentle curl, leave it long and loose, but with a cute little braid that starts above one ear.
The Bedhead Wave
You’ve taken extra special care of your tresses all winter and now you want to show them off, right? This is why Christmas 2016 is the perfect time to create some epic down ‘dos. And nothing says glam like shiny, vital hair extensions. Clip in hair extensions are the best option for a hectic time like Christmas because they can be applied in minutes. The bedhead wave is a favourite of supermodels like Adriana Lima. Use a curl defining balm, after styling, to fight frizz and maintain the hold. Start curling halfway down the hair for a more relaxed, tousled vibe.
The ‘Double Up’ Pony
If you’re looking for something new and quirky, however, a simple wave might not do it for you. Fortunately, the double pony is being styled to perfection by Hollywood divas like Shay Mitchell. The Pretty Little Liars actress shows the world just how it’s done with this bold and brilliant triple updo. Personally, we think that two ponies is ample for a super cute party ‘do, but feel free to throw caution to the wind if you’re daring enough for three. The positioning has to be right, though, so you might need a bit of practice. If they are uneven and out of line, it will look a bit haphazard.
The ‘Don’t Worry About It’ Bun
Yes, it’s the messy bun – perfect for all occasions and all hair types. It is the go to look for anybody who has ever had a stressful Christmas Day morning and has no time for preening. It is for all the mums who have ten minutes in front of the mirror, instead of the thirty that they’d like. It is for the lazy girls who like their cocktails long and their ‘dos quick and easy. We’re in love with the messy bun because it is just so easy to create. And it can look like a million dollars too. We recommend piling your extensions up into a casual updo like this when you’re a little worse for wear after the office Christmas party.
