Quick Holiday Hair Ideas for Women

It’s called the most wonderful time of year, and while there's nothing quite like the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, the “to do” list can feel pretty intimidating. Between the shopping, wrapping, gifting and baking, it can feel overwhelming to find an outfit and hairstyle for all the holiday parties and dinners. But it doesn’t have to be a chore—there are easy ways to get dolled up without spending hours in front of a mirror. Try these easy hairstyle ideas for a festive look that can be created in minutes.


Create a classic pony tail

Ponytails aren’t just for the gym, they can be a simple and elegant option when style time is limited. Whether sleek and chic, or loose and lovely, wrap the base with a small section of the pony tail to hide the rubber band and make it look more polished.


Get tied up in braids

Never before have braids been so popular. From milk maid to fish tail, double dutch to French, when it comes to braids, you can’t go wrong. For a simple style, try a basic side braid, starting behind one ear. Tug the sides to soften it up and make it romantic.

Short hairstyles don't have to miss out on festive looks. Try an accessory like a headband or vintage barrette.

Add accessories

Boost the festive factor fast with a hair accessory. The fashion runways were sparkling this year with vintage-looking barrettes, headbands, and clips. Make a simple ponytail or bun glam with an eye-catching rhinestone piece.

Make a messy topknot

Pretty party looks don’t have to be smooth and perfect. Sometimes a messy, chaotic top knot is just the thing—especially when glammed up with a sparkly hairband or ribbon.
