Holiday Hair Vibes

  • The Fishtail Bun: Add elegant drama for that office party. You just straighten your hair and part it on the side. Sweep it back into a low ponytail and then weave a small section into a fishtail braid. Twist your un-braided pony into a bun and wrap the fishtail braid around the base. Fair warning—it takes up to 50 bobby pins to keep it snug!
  • The Half Bun: Pull the top section of your hair into a tight bun and tuck up any loose ends. You can do it on your crown or base of the neck or halfway in between. It’s that easy.
  • Side Swept Waves: Create large bouncy waves with a large barrel curling iron. Make a deep part on one side and then secure the back (by your neck) with bobby pins.
  • Crimped, Braided Pony: Just blow your hair out straight and put it up into a high pony. Remove a section of hair on each side and braid them upward until they reach the ponytail. Tuck the braids in. Crimp the hair in your pony. Wrap a piece of hair around the elastic and secure it with a bobby pin.
  • Slicked Back: Apply gel at the front of your hair and brush it straight back. Secure the sides with bobby pins right behind your ears to help it stay put.
