How To: Holiday Hair

Happy Friday! Happy second day of winter! Happy day 23 of Blogmas. While you're reading this, I'll be making the 5-hour pilgrimage home for Christmas and my Brother's Christmas Eve wedding. I'll be attending parties and the wedding, so I'll need lots of hair style options. I thought I would share some of my ideas with you--these styles would be perfect for holiday parties, gatherings, or even New Year's Eve. Enjoy!
Loose Curls 
2 in curling iron and use this tutorial
Velcro Roller Curls
See tutorial here.
Poof & Pull 
Poof hair & pull back
Try this look instead.
Twist
Take 2 sections of hair and twist together. Secure with pins. If desired, repeat on other side.
Braided Headband
Take a section of hair behind the ear and braid.
 Bring through hair and over your head, like a headband. 
 Secure and repeat on the other side.
Braided Bun
Divide hair in half. Make 2 braids and pin in a bun.
Bun Behind Ear
Pull hair to one side and loop into a bun. Pin and add a pin/brooch.
Pony Pin
Pull hair to one side and fasten in a loose pony. Add a pin/brooch.

How do you wear your hair for the holidays?
Which style would you like to try?

  1. I tell you, if my hair were actually long enough to do anything with it I would so be all over these tutorials - I honestly can't even tell which look is my favorite. You've got gorgeous hair!

  24. Lovely lovely styles. My vote is for the loose curls and braided bun. You're so good with hair, I can barely use a hairdryer, lol.
    P.S
    Just wanted to wish you a very Merry Christmas!
    May it be a blessed one filled with peace & prosperity.

  26. These look lovely, although my hair is way shorter and so such things don't always work for me.

    Have you seen the hair tutorials on A Cup Of Jo? They're also pretty awesome.
