  • 4 Easy Hairstyles to Keep the Christmas Spirit


    You think Christmas is over? Pretty sure you still have that holiday hangover and deep inside you do want it gone. Here are 4 easy Christmas hairstyles, so you can bring the holiday spirit even after the 25th day of December!

    Ultra Deep Side Sweep by Steph

    1. Begin by creating a deep side part.
    2. Tuck the hair on the shallow side behind your ear, and sweep it across the back and over your shoulder.
    3. Use bobby pins to pin your hair across the back, pinning a few inches behind your ear.  It is helpful to use x-large bobby pins. 
    4. Using a 1 inch curling iron, curl all of your side-swept hair towards your face.
    5. Once all of your hair is curled, gently brush out the curls to form a wave.
    6. You can add a hair accessory at this point if you'd like to. 

    Brigitte Bardot Mermaid Braid by MissySue 

    1. Begin by separating a portion of head at the back of the crown and gently back comb the hair underneath to create volume.
    2. Take the same portion of hair and wrap it towards the back of the head.
    3. Separate the section into three pieces and cross the side strands over the middle, beginning a regular braid.
    4. Next, take a small section of hair, on the left side, directly in front of the portion being braided, and add it into the braid to create a french braid.
    5. Now repeat step 4 on the right side, bringing in a small section of hair.
    6. Incorporate the small sections into the french braid.
    7. Continue braiding, bringing in small sections of hair, working towards the front hairline.
    8. Repeat steps 4 through 7 until the strands around the face and above the ears are brought into the braid.
    9. Tie off the end of the braid with a clear elastic band.
    10. Tie a hair ribbon over the clear elastic band to hide it.

    Fabric Maiden Braid by ABeautifulMess 

    1. Divide your hair into two sections and pin the scarf into the back of your hair. This will prevent it from sliding while you are braiding.
    2. Braid each side of your hair using the scarf as one of the three sections in the braid.
    3. Pin the braids in place all the way to your crown.
    4. Take the leftover sections of the scarf and tie a knot. Continue tying knots until you reach the very tips of your scarf.
    5. Roll the knotted part of the scarf forward. It should look like a snail shell from the side.
    6. Pin it down in the front. All done!

    Simple Gibson Tuck by Sara 

    1. Pull your hair into a ponytail. You can make it high, semi-high, or low, as this looks great in all three.
    2. Next you’ll want to gently pull on the ponytail, almost as if you were going to take it out, and then take your finger and wiggle a gap into your ponytail (in between your scalp and the hair tie) making a sizable nest.
    3. Twist your ponytail around your finger with one hand and then roll it up into the neat little nest you made.
    4. Now this part can be tricky: keep rolling it up until your ponytail holder can be tucked flush against your scalp and then use the bobby pins to pin your hair tie against your scalp, keeping the style in place.
    5. It’s important that you pin the hair tie because not only will it keep the look in place, but it will hide your hair tie all together.
