Hi there friends! Christmas is only a week away and I feel likes I've neglected some of the holiday-themed posts I could have done. Well, hopefully today's post will make up for it, a little.
I have three simple hairstyles that are perfect for any of your holiday events or gatherings you have left this season. Really, they are good for any dang time of the year, but I tried to go for looks that were a little more classic and timeless, which is what I usually associate with Christmas/Holiday time.
Also, these are very simple. I'm certainly no hair guru by any means. If I can do these, you can do these. Repeat after me, "I am a strong, independent woman, and I can create these hairstyles."
Alright, enough fluff, let's get to the looks.
The first look I created is this classic, sophisticated low bun. I think this is just the most chic looking up-do that you could pair with any party dress or cozy sweater alike.
To create this look you'll need a bun maker, hair tie and some bobby pins. You simply pull your hair into a low side pony tail and use the bun maker to create a voluminous, well proportioned bun. Then you secure the whole thing with bobby pins. It's crazy easy and takes less than 5 minutes.

Meet the pull-through braid. It's like the regular braid but it says, "I'm fun and classy" (as opposed to the regular side braid which says, "I'm either on my way to soccer practice or I'm hungover.")
To create the pull-through braid you need a handful of polybands in a color close to your natural hair color. The pull through braid is SUPER simple, but trying to explain it in words...not so much. Speed up to 00:00 in the video to quickly see how simple this braid is.
The perfect, classic curls. Not too tight, not too small, just big, sleek and timeless.
You'll want a larger barreled curling wand or iron to create these curls along with some bobby pins. Taking 1 to 1-1/2 inch sections curl the hair around the barrel TOWARDS your face. After letting the hair heat up, drop the curl into your hand and pin in place. Allow the curls to completely cool in the pins before releasing them. This will ensure the curl lasts throughout the day (or night).
Thanks for stopping by! Let me know which 'do was your favorite!
