The most wonderful time of the year is here! And, if you’re lucky enough to have a ton of parties and get-togethers to attend, you may be looking for some easy ways to dress up your hair for the festive occasions.
Whether you have short, medium, or long hair, there are some simple touches that can add a beautiful dose of glam to your holiday hair. Here are some ideas to inspire you:
Make It Sparkle!
Nothing says holiday like some glitter and shine. Add some sparkle to your hair with accessories like clips, pins, headbands, or barrettes. You can also use hair products like glitter spray or gel, to create a shimmering effect. Choose colours that match your outfit or contrast with your hair colour for a stunning look.The best party-ready shades to look for are platinum and gold. Obv. They pop up against those dark and dramatic shades we all love to wear for more formal occasions.
Try a New Braid
If you have medium or long hair, braids are a great idea to play up any hair texture. (It’s not a secret why brides have been choosing this simple way to elevate their hair look for the big day.) Want something a little bit different? Choose a braid style like a fishtail, a waterfall, a crown, or a French braid. You can also add some flair to your braid with ribbons, which are definitely trending hard this year in everything from home decor to fashion and beauty. Choose a beautiful and festive satin or grosgrain ribbon to dress up your braids.
Curls or Waves for a Big Night
These fab game changers for hair add volume and movement to hair, instantly making it look more festive and glamorous. You can use a curling iron, a flat iron, a wand, or hot rollers, to create different types of curls or waves. And don’t forget to apply a heat protector before using your hot tools, and also include a mousse, styling cream, or spray, to enhance hold. You’ll want to make sure your hair stands up to your evenings’ dancing and socializing.
Play With Colour
If you want to change up your hair colour for the holidays, you don’t need to commit to a complex colour process. You can use temporary products like sprays, or even pigmented masks, to deepen a shade, to create fun and festive hues. You can also use hair extensions or clips to add some highlights or lowlights to your hair. Choose hues that complement your skin tone and eye colour, or go for bold and bright tones for a more dramatic effect.
These are some simple touches that can glam up your holiday hair vibe. Mix and match them as you wish, or explore them solo to glam it up for your holiday parties. Happy holidays from the entire team at Pure Montreal salon! 🎄
