THE 12 BEST HOLIDAY HAIR LOOKS

Crushing Waves

Amanda Seyfried’s ribbon curls evoke that perfect old Hollywood glamour that’s always in style. For a look that lasts into the late-late hours, set hair in hot rollers and touch up with a curling iron before gently brushing out into cascading waves.

Twinkle Twinkle

Sometimes all you need is a sparkly hair accessory to show you’re having fun, like Milla Jovavich. Pull your hair up and slip on a bejeweled clip or barrette—the key is to keep your hair loose and tousled to show you’re in the festive mood.

Aim High

A bun is just a bun. Until you hike it up really high like Diane Kruger. Then it suddenly becomes statement-y and super dressy. Mist on a shine spray to lend a smooth polish (and make it clear you didn’t come from the gym).

Do the Twist

No one does beachy waves better than Kate Hudson. Here, she shows us how to dress up the surfer style for a night out. After wrapping your hair around a clamp-less iron to get tons of tendrils, twist back a few pieces and pin in place just above your nape. Gather the rest into a low pony and set with a lightweight hairspray.

Smooth Moves

Blake Lively evokes plenty of hair envy and this glamorous blowout proves the point. It’s simple but striking. To get a similarly bouncy effect, blowdry with a paddle brush to eliminate any frizz, then curl just the ends for movement.

The Braid-y Bunch

Although Julianne Hough’s intricate ‘do looks complicated, it doesn’t have to require eighty steps. Just braid back a side section of your hair and secure with pins. Gather the rest into a bun, adding a second twist on the other side of your head, if time permits. Remember, this style actually looks better if it’s not too precise or perfect.

Solange Knowles’s low, sleek loop reminds us of the kind seen on the Altuzarra runway. With a crisp red lip, center part and killer shine (mist on those gloss sprays!), she’s the picture of holiday polish.

Show Some Shoulder

Long hair looks much more elegant when swept over one shoulder, like Kristen Stewart displays. To anchor your mane to one side, twist back a section of hair behind your ear and secure with pins before misting with hairspray.

Turn Up the Volume

Take a cue from Gwen Stefani: don’t underestimate the power of a simple blow-out enhanced with major volume. Tease the under section of your hair before smoothing out the top with round brush for that added oomph.

Pomp and Circumstance
