5 Easy Holiday Hair Styles That You Can Do At Home
When we think of holiday parties and family gatherings, many of us also think of how to style our hair- whether it be braids or a beautiful bun! Of course, for your big parties or events we recommend you book an appointment with one of our expert hair stylists, however we understand that with all the different dinners and get togethers, you want to look stylish every day! With that in mind, your South Ottawa hair stylists at Beauty on Bank have put together some helpful tips and inspiration for some hairstyles that are perfect for the holidays and easy to create at home.
Easy Holiday Hair Style 1: Braided Bun
To create this look, start by creating a simple three-strand braid. Once you've reached the end of your hair, secure the braid with an elastic.
Next, take the braid and wrap it around itself to form a bun. Use bobby pins to secure the bun in place.
There you have it! A quick and easy South Ottawa hair style that is great for the holidays and that you can do at home.
Easy Holiday Hair Style 2: Ponytail with Twists
For this holiday hair style, you will need to start with a ponytail. If you have long hair, you can either put your ponytail in the middle of your head or at the nape of your neck. If you have shorter hair, you will want to put your ponytail closer to the top of your head.
Once you have your ponytail in place, take small sections of hair and twist them around your fingers. Do this all the way around your head until all of your hair is twisted.
You can then take the ends of the twists and tuck them into the elastic band of your ponytail. This will give you a tidy look that is perfect for any holiday party or event.
Easy Holiday Hair Style 3: Half Up Top Knot
Looking for a show-stopping South Ottawa hair style? You can achieve a festive and glamorous look at home with this easy holiday hair style.
Start by parting your hair down the middle. If you have bangs, sweep them to the side.
Take a section of hair from each side of your head and tie them together at the back of your head in a half ponytail.
Twist the ponytail around itself to form a bun, and secure with bobby pins.
Take some loose pieces of hair from around your face and curl them with a curling iron for a soft and romantic look. Finish off with Redken Quick Dry 18 or Control Addict 28 hairspray to keep everything in place.
Easy Holiday Hair Style 4: Low Side Bun
Where are our women with long hair in South Ottawa? This hair style is for you! This low side bun is a great holiday hair style for those with long hair. It's easy to do at home, and only takes a few minutes. Here's how to do it:
Start with clean, dry hair. If your hair is oily, you can start with day-old hair or use Redken dry shampoo to help absorb some of the oil.
Create a low side part and gather your hair into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck.
Use a styling brush to smooth out any bumps or lumps in your ponytail, then secure it with an elastic band.
Wrap the ponytail around itself to create a low bun, then secure it in place with bobby pins.
Mist the bun with Redken Fashion Works 12 or Quick Dry 18 hairspray to help keep it in place, and you're done!
Easy Holiday Hair Style 5: High Ponytail
A high ponytail is a great way to style your hair for the holidays. It's quick, easy, and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
To achieve this look, start by brushing your hair back from your face and securing it with an elastic band at the crown of your head. If you have long or thick hair, you may need to use a second elastic band halfway down the length of your ponytail to keep it secure.
Once your ponytail is in place, take a small section of hair from the front and wrap it around the base of the ponytail to cover the elastic band. Secure this piece with a bobby pin and voila! You've got a festive and easy holiday hairstyle that will take you from South Ottawa party to party without any fuss.
