Holiday Hairstyles to Make You Sparkle

The holidays are officially in full swing, and you know what that means…holiday hairstyles are here! Between company holiday parties to celebratory end-of-year galas, dinners and festive winter weddings, we know your social calendar is probably more filled to the brim than Santa’s sleigh.

Lots of parties and get-togethers also means you’ll want to look your best for all those pictures that are sure to be captured. While we can’t help you on the party wardrobe front, we can certainly give some insight in to our favorite holiday hairstyles that will make you shine more than any strand of tinsel or silver bell!

P.S. – Make sure to check the bottom of the post for links to any holiday hairstyle tutorials. 


Holiday hairstyles that incorporate a jeweled piece like a comb or barrette are an easy way to glam up a simpler style, which is also ideal if you’re not great with updos. We especially love a jeweled barrette paired with big, retro waves for the holidays.



We’re not big fans of holiday hairstyles that take the season too literally (a bun that look like a reindeer anyone?). Of course, those are great for more fun, laid back festivities, but if you can’t resist bringing some added flair to your holiday hairstyle, we recommend using a nice piece of ribbon as an accent as a headband or a bow.


We’re loving these pompadour and faux-hawk holiday hairstyles for ladies with short or natural hair! Not only do they deliver on the volume, but these styles will also look stellar with a beautiful pair of statement earrings (we say, the glitzier, the better).



You can’t go wrong with a classic twist or braid for a soft and romantic holiday look. Don’t be intimidated with these undoes, they’re all easier than they look, we promise!





Ok, we know we said we didn’t care for holiday hairstyles that take the seasonal thing too seriously, but we couldn’t resist this last one! Doesn’t this make you want to be a winter wonderland bride, or at least go make a wintergreen and berry crown and go blow up Instagram with all your gorgeous pics?!

Ok, enough of our gushing, we hope you give these holiday hairstyles a try for your next event, and make sure to snap a pic and share with us on social @bangsalondc or with the hashtag, #bangsalondc.

Happy holidays!
