One of best parts about the holidays are the parties. Getting dressed up and looking your best is fun. But it can also be a lot of work. When clients turn to you for some holiday hair inspiration, they’re hoping you will give some ideas that will make them look and feel special. Here are some holiday hairstyles that can make your clients excited to show off their hair. Some are more complicated than others, but there’s something for everyone. Here are 10 holiday hair inspiration styles that will surely turn heads!

1) @nastya_kopach

This low braided ponytail hair design is sleek and sophisticated. Of course, it will take some know how but other types of braids could be substituted for this one if it’s too complicated. This hairstyle would go well with a simple outfit so there’s not too much competition between the hair and outfit.


2) @alishajaredhairartistry

Whether the client has short or long hair, a pomp is always classy and sexy. With a lot of teasing and hairspray, you can achieve great volume. And the bigger the pomp, the bolder the statement. Use cute hair clips to accessorize the style. A pomp hairstyle looks good with a sophisticated, sleek outfit with simple lines.


3) @hairandmakeupbysteph

The 50’s look is glamorous and beautiful. Pair it with some red lip stick to complete the look. 50’s hair is characterized by big barrel curls which can look great on long or short hair. The old Hollywood glam is always a winner for holiday parties. Just remember to use a lot of hairspray to keep the shape!

A simple low bun is always an option. If wearing the hair down or up is not ideal, a low bun could do the trick. With a lot of bobby pins and some hairspray, this could be the simplest of the looks yet. But it’s still beautiful and timeless and sometimes people don’t want to stand out too much.

How about a blowout? Big hair is always a great party pleaser. Give some body and volume with just a blowdryer and brush. Add then add a touch of product if needed. Give it some curl and bounce and she’s ready to go!

Want to add some sparkle? Nothing says holiday more than a bit of tinsel or glitter. Use any color tinsel, perhaps a color that matches the outfit. Adding tinsel to the hair is an easy and fun way to play up the holidays but keeping the style simple.

7) @michelle_walker_hair

For something more professionally done, this one is gorgeous. Pull the hair back into a stylized ponytail and accessorize it with a hair clip. It’s a sophisticated look that will turn heads and earn compliments.

8) @crimsonandclovehair

A full updo could be in order. Resembling a wedding hairstyle, this one is adapted to a holiday theme. Pinning up curls and adding some holiday inspired trinkets to the hair can bring that extra flair that makes it more than a traditional updo.

If the client is into color, perhaps adding touches of red and green to the hair is enough to inspire some fun. Adding some temporary color (or permanent) can give extra pop to the hair. Then, curl the hair or even put it up. The rest of the styling is up to you!

10) @thehourglass_studio

Keeping things simple, this beautiful wavy long hair is super shiny and healthy. With perfect waves that cascade down, it’s romantic soft. Use a little bit of hair gloss to give a beautiful overall shine, keeping the hair tame and smooth. This hairstyle looks good with a feminine outfit and soft makeup.

The holidays are among us and with it comes parties! Having gorgeous hair to complete the look can make the client feel confident and happy. And with these hair inspiration pictures, we hope they will give you some fun and innovative ideas for how you do your clients’ hair this season. Happy holidays!
