How to Achieve Holiday Hair with Hair Extensions and Simple Accessories

The holidays are right around the corner and now’s the time to start planning your holiday looks. Whether you’ll be celebrating with family and friends, or more intimately this year, ‘its the season for getting dressed up and showcasing glamorous hairstyles. Make this year’s celebrations truly special by spending just a few minutes to create beautiful, festive looks with the help from these tips, accessories, and hair extensions.


Practice 5 Minute Curls

When you’ve spent all day shopping, decorating, or getting your house ready for guests, master party-ready hair in five minutes flat with these super easy curls.

Put your hair up into a high ponytail and begin curling one-inch sections. Clip each curl in place while it cools. If you have hair extensions to style, curl each weft while your ponytail curls are cooling. Once all of the hair is curled, take out the clips and shake out your hair. Install your clip in hair extensions as you normally would and give all of your hair a light spritz with hairspray. All it takes is a few minutes to create voluminous, bouncy curls that’ll have you party-ready in no time.


Stand Out with a Fishtail Braid

At your upcoming work holiday party or family Christmas party, you can stand out in a sea of curls with a chic fishtail braid. Not only is this look different and unexpected, it’s also super simple to create!

Jazz up this look by putting in a glam headband to start. Pull out a few pieces at the front to leave down, and start braiding your hair in a fishtail braid beginning at the nape of your neck. Secure with an elastic and wrap a piece of hair from the ends around the elastic. Secure that with a bobby pin. Gently tug some pieces of the braid to make it appear thicker. Spray some light hold hair spray and voila!

If you’re feeling really into the holiday spirit, pin some holly leaves and artificial berries down the braid for an ultra-festive touch.

Turn Heads with a French Twist

When you’re just not sure what to do and you really don’t feel like creating a full head of curls, the French twist is here to the rescue for glam holiday hair. Create a side part and begin on the thicker side. Take two sections of hair on the top of your head at the front and start twisting them, gathering more hair on either side as you twist the pieces around each other. Once you’ve made it all the way down your head, secure the French twist with a sparkly elastic or bedazzled bracelet secured with a bobby pin. Curl the hair below the twist and spray with hairspray.


Bump it Up with a High Half Updo

The high, ultra-bouncy half updo is a surefire go-to for modern yet feminine holiday hair this year. Start by styling your hair to create large, bouncy curls. Create the section for the half updo, bringing it up to the highest point on your head. Secure with an elastic and wrap a piece of hair around it with a bobby pin, or use a glam elastic or barrette to add shine and shimmer.

Create a Hair Crown

The holidays are all about glamorous styles and accessories, and what could be more glam than a crown? Creating a crown with your hair is not hard to do, but looks intricate and complex.

For this look, we recommend trying the French crown, styled with a French braid. Begin by parting your hair however you wish, whether that be a deep side part or a middle part. Start on one side, French braiding your hair until you reach your ear. Once you reach your ear, continue making a regular three-strand braid until you reach the ends. Secure with two bobby pins crisscrossed over each other. Do the same thing on the other side.

Once both sides are braided, bring them to the back, crossing them over each other and securing with a few bobby pins. Take out the crisscrossed bobby pins on the ends of the braids and you’re done! Add a shimmery, metallic accessory and you’ve officially nailed the best hairstyle at the party, guaranteed.

Use Simple Accessories to Elevate Your Look

Simply yet elegant accessories will be your best friend this holiday season to achieve easy yet glam styles in no time. Here are a few options to consider for your different looks:

  • Sparkly headband – headbands can be worn with so many different styles, from ponytails to braids to down styles.
  • Pretty bobby pins – Bobby pins are the easiest and most effective hair accessory. Choose pins in a shimmery metallic shade or glittered with sparkles to add glimmer and shine to a deep side part.
  • Gold leaves – Simple metallic gold leaves pinned into a bun gives an understated yet oh-so-elegant look.
  • Fake holly berries – Attach a few artificial holly berries you can find at your local craft store to bobby pins and place them into a ponytail, half updo, braid, or crown style for a beautiful Christmas look that isn’t at all cheesy.


Add Hair Extensions for Instant Drama and Style

While you can create these looks without hair extensions, extensions make these styles even more dramatic and stunning.  Add instant length and va-va-volume to your hair with human hair extensions and easily create the most beautiful hairstyles you’ve ever worn.

By pre-styling your hair extensions with a curling iron or flat iron, you can save so much time getting ready for holiday parties and gatherings and achieve “holiday hair perfection” in only a matter of minutes.
