We are heading into the most festive and social time of the year and everyone wants to look stunning or all of the family gatherings and holiday parties. It’s true that holiday hair does require a bit more pizazz than your typical workweek styles, but that doesn’t mean that the styles have to be complicated. Short, medium and long hair all can be glamorous with the right styles and a bit of bling. So gather your holiday hair accessories and let's dig into some glamorous hairstyles for the holidays.
Slicked Back Chic Chignons Or Buns
Start this style with hair that is detangled and free of knots. Part your hair in the middle or brush straight back and apply Redken Max Sculpting Gel and brush through to smooth. Secure a low ponytail in the back and proceed to twist the tail into a sleek chignon or bun. Pin it into place and add your favorite pearl or jeweled hair comb or barrette just above the bun.
Smooth Sleek Long Hair
To achieve this look apply Pureology Style + Protect Weightless Volume Mousse and blow dry straight. Finish with Redken Shine Flash Glass Like Shine Spray to get smooth, sleek strands with loads of shine.
High Ponytail With Curls
This is the perfect style to showcase your curls while keeping them contained and out of the way. Apply Redken Curvaceous Spiral Lock Gel throughout your damp hair. Secure into a high ponytail and then finish with Redken Shine Flash Glistening Mist to lock in a glamorous glossy shine.
Big Voluptuous Style With Sexy Soft Curls And Waves
If you have natural curls and waves, take advantage of them. Apply Pureology Style + Protect On The Rise Root Lifting Mousse to damp curls. Flip your head over and hit the roots with a diffuser to give them plenty of lift and volume. Allow the rest to air dry and finish with Pureology Style + Protect Lock It Down Hairspray to boost shine and keep everything in place.
Get this 60s-inspired style by applying Redken Full Frame All-Over Volumizing Mousse and blow drying, pulling hair up on top and at the crown to create maximum root lift. Then apply Redken Backcombing Finishing Spray and backcomb the crown and create the bouffant. Finish with the spray to lock your style in place.
These waves are glamorous any time of year. Start by misting damp hair with Pureology Color Fanatic Multi-Tasking Leave-In Spray. Blow dry smooth and then curl one-inch sections of hair, all in the same direction. Brush out into smooth aligned waves and finish with Pureology Style + Protect Soft Finish Hairspray to keep your waves soft and smooth with unstoppable shine.
This one is awesome for super long hair. Use gold or silver ponytail holders to create the bubbles to add festive bling to the style.
Pull naturally textured hair back on one side with a sparkle comb to add glamor to the easiest style you’ve ever created. Sometimes an accessory is all that’s needed to take a style from simple to stunning.
Braids in all styles are always a hit, from French braids, to crown braids, to flowing mermaid braids. Weave in strands of pearls and other festive bits and baubles like holly or mistletoe to make them even more special.
