We gathered the hottest hairstyles for the upcoming holiday season to share with you. No matter what type of hair you want, we have a style for it. Consider this your ultimate guide to holiday hairdo!
Short hair is having its moment in 2022 and will continue to sleigh into the new year.. Your style can be polished, wild, and everything in between. Chopping your locks is one of the most exciting ways to signify “New Year, new me”. We’re bringing you this season's most eye-catching cropped looks and exactly how to style them.
The French bob is currently the easiest and most versatile holiday hairstyle for women with short chic hair. It‘s the true bob length, falling above your chin. It’s the ultimate laissez-faire look, guaranteed to make a statement this festive season. Add a twist that incorporates playful waves and tousled bangs:
If you want to take your bob even further, introduce the micro bob. This is what we like to call the perfect winter-do. Throw on a cashmere sweater and you will instantly turn heads at any holiday party. You can wear your micro bob with or without bangs. It’s a blunt cut that is about lip or jaw length. The style is sleek, straight, and plays up your own personal vibe.
The Twiggy is one of the most iconic hairstyles of all time, and we are living for it this holiday season. It’s cool, low maintenance and versatile. It gives lux sophistication all the way to cottage core. Here’s how you get the look.
This is for all of our naturally curly girls! If you know, you know. Natural curls get fuller, lighter, and just plain better with a shorter haircut. This is an easy, wash-and-go, carefree style that only needs a bit of product to pop. This is great in colder months to fully give you hair a break from heat!
If you keep up with fashion, you have seen this slick style everywhere. Parted in the middle and perfectly slicked back behind the ears. It looks amazing on any cut above the shoulders or a blunt cut. This is your go-to, high fashion style when your makeup and outfit are the main attraction. This makes for the perfect New Year’s Eve look!
If you have a layered cut, you can’t go wrong with messy waves. You can toss through them all night and they only get better, making this a great style for long nights with friends and family.
2022 is the queen of the throwback. The 60s through the early 2k styles are back like low-rise jeans. This is the trend cycle. Trends always come back in style in the same order as they happened back in the day. Think Gwen Steffani in the time of No Doubt with a polished twist. Pinned and tamed with a touch of rock and roll. It’s an awesome New Years Eve look to pair with a mini dress and blazer.
You simply can’t go wrong with mid-length hair. Everything is fair game from updos to voluminous curls. We have the scoop on the latest trends in medium hairstyles (keep in mind that all of these medium-length hairstyles are great for long hair too!). Wow your co-workers at the office holiday party with these cool girl looks.
Here is your go-to quick and polished updo. The best thing about this look is it is great for those dirty hair days, especially if you have parties multiple days in a row. You can do this look in less than 10 minutes and be on the way to your next party in no time.
This style looks amazing at shoulder length or below, that’s where you can see the drama and movement of your layers. You want to keep this cut hydrated and trimmed to avoid flyaways and split ends. This style reminds us of the fall time, perfect to wear to any pumpkin patch and ice skating rink!
This style is quick, easy, and playful. Grab some cute and comfy pjs because this is the perfect addition for a Christmas movie marathon with the family! Also another great hairstyle for dirty hair days.
The shag cut has very short layers from top to bottom. This look is a simple updo for this cut with big messy waves in the front and a pinned twist at the back. This is a fun and care-free style that is sure to turn heads at any party.
Ok, ok, when you hear the word mullet, we know what comes to mind. But ladies, this isn't your uncle's mullet. You wouldn't pair reflective sunglasses or a canned beer with this style. Think short, light, feminine, bouncy layers. It’s easily this year’s hottest new look and isn’t going anywhere. Welcome in the new year by being ahead of the trends with this up and coming style.
When you think “lob haircut” the possibilities are endless, but a straight long bob is this season's medium easy style. Everything is the same length, from the front to the back with short bangs. It’s one of those styles that stays put all day and all night. Perfect for the holiday party season.
This look is quick, easy, and an elegant way to show off your holiday makeup. You can rock this Christmas style all the way from casual to cocktail.
Long hair is a style within itself. A lot of long hairstyle success comes down to what you do before styling. Using the right tools and styling products can take you a long way. When you get your cut and hair care right, long hair is surprisingly low maintenance. Here are a few down styles and updos to wow the crowd this holiday season.
Do you remember Barbie’s thick, long ponytail? This is such a great holiday style, especially when you are booked and busy. Keep the hair out of her face in a trendy, cool way. Wouldn’t it be grand if our ponytails naturally fell like that? Here’s a little trick to add some height to your updo:
This one is a classic that never really went all the way out of style, and it’s definitely one of this season's most popular looks thanks to Cassie’s character in Euphoria. Long hair is already eye-catching. Take it to the next level with soft winged bangs and curls.
This style is a loose, voluminous braid with flowing strandes framing the face. It’s a romantic look that shows off your gorgeous length. This is a great style for ice skating, skiing, and any cold weather activity. It keeps hair out of your face in a stylish way!
Long curly hair creates a glorious, effortless top bun (if you have naturally curly hair, start after the curling wand step in this style guide). This updo is perfect to show off your shoulders in a strapless dress.
French women are known for having an effortlessly striking look. French layers start around the chin and gradually get longer toward the ends. The ends are still full while layers give flowing texture and movement. With the perfect cut, this style is easily achievable and works well with straight and wavy hair types. A great style to try if you’re looking for something new this season.
The bubble braid is a simple, fun twist on the traditional braid. It’s also another one of those styles that will stay put, all night long. Making for a great party hairstyle.
