The holiday season is in full effect, and that means it’s time for holiday parties! Brian and I will be attending his company party this weekend, and I have no doubt that gatherings with friends—casual and dressy alike—will happen several times before we ring in the new year.
With parties, of course, comes dressing up a bit. Even casual Christmas hangouts beg a bit more of dressiness than the usual get together. Thus, I wanted to share some fun holiday hair ideas to help you feel fabulous this holiday season…

Big, Soft Waves
Soft waves are classic. They work for casual and dressed-up events, and sometimes can carry over from one day to the next—when I curl my hair like this for a Friday night dinner, I find that I can often just touch it up a bit on Saturday and it looks just as nice, if not better than the first day! This look is 100% my go-to style this season.
The sock bun is both playful and elegant, perfect for a company Christmas party or New Year’s event where you just want your hair pulled back and out of the way. It’s no-fuss and simple to do, which will certainly cut down on your getting-ready time (something we all can appreciate, I’m sure).
Though I haven’t yet finished this series (I promise I will one day!), I have shared a few video guides to help you with your braiding skills. The fishtail is fun for a more casual look, and the double braid/bun variation is lovely for a fancier affair.
Thus is by far the most glamourous of hair styles. I love the retro feel of it! This is perfect for those of you (like me!) who have long hair and want to have a totally different look. This would work well with a dress that has a nice back detail—a cutout, an exposed zipper, etc—as all of your hair will be pulled up by your neck.
How do you tend to wear your hair for holiday festivities?
