Something about the holidays make it extra fun to get dressed up, more so than at any other time of the year. This year, as unique as it is, has all of us left to decide whether we want to get fancied up for the holidays to make it feel extra special, or keep things extremely casual because let's face it, we're not actually going anywhere. Wardrobe aside, our hair has the power to transform us—I mean, it is one of our best accessories. Whatever you decide to do to celebrate from Thanksgiving to the New Year, dressy or casual, creating a timeless style for your hair can elevate your look and your entire mood. Below, we've rounded up 29 timeless hairstyles to inspire every hair type for this unique holiday season.
A deep side part, classic Hollywood waves and a bold red lip? This is an all around timeless beauty look, making it great for a small get together at home or your company's holiday Zoom party. To replicate, all you need to do is wrap sections of your hair around a 1" curling iron going in the same direction all the way around the head. Once the hair is cool, you can brush through those curls to soften it up and finalize your desired shaping with some hairspray.
Spring may be the season for fresh florals, but the holidays are a time for metallic buds. Keep the timeless look alive with a little extra sheen by way of these pins from LeLet NY.
If you have stick straight hair and are looking for a timeless new 'do, chalk your hair full of Oribe's Dry Texture spray and do a lil' hair wrap. This is a super unique, fun updo to try. Part your hair behind one ear and begin to gently tease your hair forward, following the curvature of your head and pinning as you go. Let the ends nest on top near the crown. Hide your pins with something a little extra glitzy when you're through.
If your hair is too thick or slippery to hold this shape, use a wet product to give it some hold like BedHead's Queen for a Day and blow dry the hair in the direction you want to pin it in until it's fully dry.
If you're looking to style your dreads or braids into a timeless style, you have the power of sculpting unforgettable shapes on your side. An exaggerated beehive, bouffant, or topknot can all get a tinge of holiday spirit with garlands of jewels or chains thoughtfully wrapped around them.
Make your glam shine for the holidays. Pick up a can of restorative shine spray like this olive oil spray from ORS to use on your hair and skin. It'll keep your chignons looking sleek and your collarbones extra dewy.
All is bright this time of year, and the hair should be too. For a glassy style that won't budge, set your hair in place with a good primer like BedHead's Queen for a Day. Blowdrying this product into the hair will help it hold it's shape, and finishing each section off with a flat brush and some hair spray will ensure it doesn't move all night. Top it off with a light mist shine spray for that glass-like effect.
