30 Gorgeous Holiday Hairstyles
Soft waves – There is something so elegant about soft waves. I was reading an article with Sofia Vergara and she thinks older women should not wear their hair up, because it ages you. What do you think? It’s not my favorite look on myself, but sometimes I just want to mix it up, ya know? But, maybe she’s right. If you like to always wear your hair down, you can change up your look with soft waves like these.
Up-do’s – I need a lot of practice when it comes to achieving an up-do that looks good. My favorites are the ones with headbands, a beautiful clip or a braid. It really adds something to the look and kicks it up a notch. When I do an up-do, I almost always wear my bangs down. I have a heart-shaped face and to me, it just looks better that way. Here are a few up-dos that caught my eye that I thought would be perfect for the holidays – whether it’s a Christmas get-together or a New Year’s Eve party.

The Top-knot – Have you tried a top-knot? I have and am still not sure how I feel about it on me. I was reading another hair article this morning that suggested women over 30 shouldn’t try this look. What do you think? Here are a few top knot hairstyles.

Slick and straight – I noticed at the recent AMA awards that quite a few celebrities wore their hair parted down the middle and straight as a board. This is definitely not a look for everyone, but wow it can make a statement. You can also wear it straight and slicked back for a dramatic look. Here are a couple of examples.
Short with a deep-side part – I had to include this holiday hairstyle idea featured on Julie Bowen because one, I like her and two, it’s a no-fuss, easy to achieve look if you have short hair like she does. I did a similar look, which you’ll see below, for a feature I did with Suave. It became one of my favorite ways to wear my hair. You can see the tutorial and which products I used to achieve the look here.
Top it with a bow – I thought this look via Lauren Conrad’s amazing blog, was too cute and fun not to share. It’s easy and simple.
