It's that time of the year again when the air has a whiff of festivities and we get into the mood of celebrations. The holiday season is almost upon us; what could be a better way to welcome it than by looking our very best from tip to toe! Here are three super easy holiday hairstyles for women that will make sure you look great at all times – whether you're at home, enjoying a special family dinner or out partying with your friends:
1. Half-up Hairstyles
Half-up hairstyles look quite chic, keep loose strands off your face and work with all types of hair – straight, wavy and curly. Add a little sparkle to your regular medium-length hairdo by sporting an ultra-feminine half-up hairstyle that will match all outfits and occasions.
Wear your face-framing hair up in a quiff, make a half-crown braid or simply tie up your front hair in a half-up ponytail – there are several beautiful half-up hairstyle options to try out this holiday season. A gently spritz of hairspray will ensure that your strands stay put while you get busy!
2. Alternative Ponytails
The best thing about ponytails is that they can be made to look sleek and sophisticated or voluminous and sporty. Why not try out a couple of alternative ponytail styles this season and look chic and unique?
Do you like wearing a low pony? Give it a twist by making a side pony instead! Work in some strand smoother serum spray to make your hair soft, smooth and shiny; create a sharp side part and gather all your hair into a neat pony on the side of your neck.
Do you like to create high ponytails with your long hair? Spritz some high-lift creation hairspray all over your roots to give your strands an instant boost; flip your head forwards and gather your hair into a high ponytail at the back or the side of your head. Using a fine-toothed comb, tease the bottom layers of your pony to make it look chunky and super-hot! Better still, wear your high, chunky ponytail scraped to one side for a bold new style!
3. Sleek Updos
There's something about updos that makes them so appealing! Subtle texture, intricate details, careful tucking and accessorizing – all go a long way in creating a perfect updo that can be worn to any occasion.
If you have medium-length to long hair and want to wear a gorgeous hairstyle that'll keep all your hair off your face and back and look glamorous at the same time, a high chignon or a braided bun will fit your bill perfectly!
To make your updo look extra sleek, mist your hair with some strand smoother serum spray prior to styling. The product will lend a soft texture and beautiful shine to your stresses and make your hairstyle look gorgeous. However, if you're after an ultra-glossy finish, gently dabbing your hair with a tiny amount of hairstyling gel will help to create a polished finish without weighing your hair down or making it look greasy!
