Special Occasion Holiday Hairstyles

The holidays are a special time of year that often have us feeling festive and glamorous but finding the right special occasion style can be difficult. Events during the holidays often mean a lot of photo opportunities and we always want to put our best face forward! Read on below to discover the hottest special occasion hairstyles of the season to help you look as glamorous as you feel!

Bohemian hairstyles add a free yet elegant feel to any holiday look! This season, loose curls and braids create relaxed, flowing lines that are anything but ordinary. Tight fishbone braids offer an interesting contrast when paired with flowing, loose curls, add to the look by placing sparkling gems or flowers throughout! Looking for a bohemian updo? Try a braided messy bun, the messier the better! Ombre or balayage strands really add an interesting complexity to this style, pair with a sparkling pin or sleek headwrap to elevate the look!

Sleek & Stylish
Wanting a more sleek, stylish hairstyle for a special holiday event? A smooth, low bun accentuates your beautiful face and won't overpower your outfit and jewelry, or channel your inner Audrey Hepburn with a gorgeous, teased top bun! Volume and teasing create the elegant tousled chignon look, perfect for any holiday event, add a pair of dazzling earing to get the most out of this look! Wanting to really let your hair down? Curls are always in style but can seem a little boring for such a glamorous time of year, spice up traditional curls by placing a jeweled clip long a hard side part.
