16 Ways to Elevate Your Hair Look This Holiday Season
Bedazzle your bun with a storm of wintery hair pins.
From parties to picture-taking, and even strolling through holiday markets, late December is full of excuses to dress up in something special. But no look is complete without hair. A clip encrusted with pearls might be just the piece to tie your look together, or maybe its a silky ribbon that’s going to elevate your ensemble. To help guide you, we’ve rounded up four basic styles – a bun, a ponytail, accessorized and ribbons – and searched for the best inspiration to take each of them to the next level. The best part is you won’t be mid-conversation at a party wondering if you actually unplugged the curling iron…
Ponytails have matured from lazy to luxe in recent years. Take it up a notch by snatching your pony, or adding some dazzling embellishments.
A ribbon is a dainty and romantic addition to any outfit, and it can be re-worn time-after-time in different ways. Try adding a floppy bow to the bottom of a braid, or wrap it around all types of buns and ponytails for added glamour.
A low, slick bun is the perfect accompaniment to *any* outfit. Keep it simple or add a kitchy-but-cute veil for easy elegance. Feeling up to a little more? Try a French braid up the back of your head or a galaxy of wintery hairpins for ‘gram-worthy style.
Adding accessories is the fastest way to make normal hair, chic. Let your imagination run wild with hair clips, headbands, scrunchies and—from left field—hair nets.
