Choosing the Best Holiday Hairstyles

Simple Hairstyles Everyone Must Try This Holiday Season

By on November 18, 2014

With holiday fast approaching the one major dilemma in my fashion arsenal is how I am going to maintain the hectic schedule that comes with this time of year, and still focus on creating the signature looks that I have become known for. My five minute beauty routine means that I have a plan for keeping my face in tip top shape this season, but what about the rest of me? How am I going to balance the schedule that comes along with being in retail this time of year, and still being ready to knock it out of the park at all my events? Then, the answer came to me almost as if the fashion fairies were there whispering in my ear. What I need is a list of go to hair styles that will set my look apart from the crowd this holiday season. There are definitely two looks that will be my trademark this holiday season:

The Bun

The  burning question: What do I do with my hair when I have almost no time on my hands?

The obvious answer? The bun.

From start to finish a bun can provide an elegant look that can be completed  in less than 5 minutes. The key to making the bun work is to find the right tool to make the top of the bun look effortless. That task may be easier said that done. I  tried no less than 10 tools before I finally found the one that worked best for me:

The thing that I love the best about this particular tool is that you can wrap your hair after it has been rolled, which means that it is super simple to use by yourself and still get a straight polished look.

 The Side Ponytail

Another quick and easy option is to opt for a side ponytail. I love this look as an alternative the basic ponytail because I feel like this look is a slightly more sophisticated option which lends itself to a holiday party quite well. The trick to choosing a side pony is to find a hair extension that matches your natural hair color so that unless you want to reveal your secret people will simply think you have a fabulous hand at hair styling. My favorite place to pick up hair extensions is at my local Ulta. The store is reasonably priced and has several options that fit my style profile.

This season there is no need to lose sleep or lose face when it comes to rocking it out at these holiday parties. Instead choose one of these fabulous tools, and get ready to dress to impress, or if you have a favorite tool feel free to share those with the rest of us die hard fashionistas.
