The holidays are here, and so are the festivities! Whether it’s a black tie event, social gathering with friends, or even the annual holiday work party… your desired hair style for these events will certainly be on your mind. There are many on-trend styles this season for both short and long lengths. Some genres that usually inspire me for these types of events are soft and romantic, urban and modern, or classic – like Grace Kelly, for example, who in my opinion transcends time, and is always appropriate for any formal event.

This holiday season there are a few styles that are relatively easy to create yourself. (For those of us who don’t have the pleasure of having our own personal hairstylist!) Dramatic side parts and low pony tails are very simple to style. Combine the two for a great fashion-forward look! You can also create a beautiful chignon by using either a rolled sock or, my personal choice, an over-sized hair donut. The donut can be purchased at any accessories store, such as Claire’s, and is used to create fullness in the bun. Another great holiday hair trend is the addition of hair adornments such as clips, combs, and barrettes in various styles.

The pompadore is yet another holiday style that works with both a ponytail and as a half-up/half-down look, as well as messy or sleek. The look is created by teasing top portions of the hair to create height, then smoothing a front section of the hair over the teased portions to create a puffed up bump of hair – the pompadore.

For those who desire a more intricate look, braids are still very popular this season. Depending on the intricacy of the braid, this style can become a little more complicated, and is not as easy to create as a part or ponytail. If you have concerns about creating any of these looks yourself, you can ask the many talented stylists at Capristo Salon and Wellness spa for some tricks of the trade the next time you are in for your hair services. You can also make a holiday hairstyle appointment and we will transform you into your beautiful holiday vision!
