Create These Glamorous Holiday Hairstyles In Minutes

November 30, 2022

With the holidays fast approaching and all of the shopping and preparations well underway, your thoughts are probably turning to your holiday wardrobe and hairstyle. When it comes to hairstyles most people want something that doesn’t take a lot of time but still looks festive and glamorous. Here are some of our favorite holiday hairstyles that take only minutes to style but look like they took hours.

Classic Chignon

This is an all-time classic hairstyle that is suitable for any occasion from casual to formal. Unwashed hair works best for this style because its texture helps keep the twist in place. It starts with a tight, low ponytail right in the center back. Divide the tail into two sections. Tie the two sections together forming a loose knot. Smooth any flyaways. Wrap and tuck the ends underneath the knot and secure with pins. Set in place with Eufora Firm Mist Workable Finishing Spray.

Hollywood Waves

This hairstyle simply exudes glamor with a fresh off-the-red carpet look. You’ll start by working Unite Elevate Mousse through damp hair. Using a flat brush blow dry creating lift at the roots for volume. Create a deep side part and section hair into fourths. Using a half-inch curling iron curl one-inch pieces from the ends to ear level pinning each curl to allow it to set while working through the rest of your hair. Make sure all curls are going in the same direction. When all of your hair is curled and cooled, remove the pins and brush through your curls smoothing them into gorgeous waves. Finish with Eufora Style Gloss Dry Shine Spray for the maximum glam effect.

French Twist

A French twist is yet another classic style that works for any venue or occasion making it perfect for the holidays when you might be rushing directly from an office party to a family dinner. To create volume separate a section of hair from your crown to your forehead and comb it forward. Backcomb the back and crown and then smooth the front section back overtop. Gather hair in the back slightly off to the side and place a row of bobby pins in a straight line from the nape to just below the crown. Spritz with Unite Go365 Hairspray. Holding all the hair in one hand, begin twisting up the back of the head in the direction of the pins so as to center the twist and hide the pins. If your hair is very long you will need to fold the twist and tuck it back underneath before pinning it into place. If your hair is shorter you can choose to fold and tuck the ends or pin the twist leaving the ends loose and curling them. Once the twist is secured smooth the front and sides and set everything in place with another spritz of hairspray.

Twisted Low Pony

A couple of twists turn a low ponytail from simple to spectacular. Separate a section of hair above each ear and spray lightly with Unite Texturiza Spray to add some texture and holding power. Twist each section right along the hairline all the way to the back and pin at the nape. Combine the tails of the two twists into one and secure with a hair tie. Take a small section of hair from the bottom of the ponytail and wrap it around the hair tie to conceal it. Pin into place on the underside. Wear the pony straight or curled, whichever you prefer.

Sleek Flat Iron Curls

For this style, you will need a standard 1-inch flat iron. Coat your strands with Eufora Thermal Defense Prep to guard against heat damage and keep your curls smooth. Then start feeding sections of hair through the open flat iron, clamping it down an inch from the root. Wrap the section once around the iron and slide it gently down the length of your hair to the tip holding it almost vertically all the way. When you’ve worked through all of your hair and the curls are cooled, finger comb to separate and style your big bouncy curls into the shape you want. Finish with Eufora Illuminate Shine Mist to give your curls a healthy sheen.
