MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE EVE EVE EVERYONE! Ok, maybe that’s a bit of a long shot, but I can definitely feel the Christmas spirit in the air now (never has a sentence reminded me so vividly of Phil Collins…) but today I thought I’d show you guys some of my favourite hairstyles for the festive/party season!
Cute Half Up | This hairstyle is so cute, and one of my favourites. It’s so simple to achieve, especially if you have naturally curly hair! All you have to do is part your bangs to one side, and take the top section of your hair and secure it in a ponytail, then tie a ribbon around the hairband and you’re done!Messy Pony |This hairstyle is another one of my favourites, and again, perfect for if you’ve got naturally curly hair. Instead of a typically sleek and ‘perfect’ ponytail, this one is messy and playful. Just throw your head upside down and collect all of you hair into a very high ponytail, then tie a piece of ribbon around it.Half Up | This style is my most-worn hairstyle, but to make it fitting for Christmas, I’ve paired it with my antler headband from New Look! Again, just part the top section of your hair, going diagonally up from behind your ear, gathering all of the top section of your hair, including your bangs this time, and secure it in a ponytail, and you’re done!Fishtail | This style is really pretty, and once you’ve learned the technique, you can actually achieve it in almost no time at all! I’ve actually got an entire post on how to fishtail braid HERE and a quick ‘Faux-fishtail’ hack HERE. All I’ve done here is a regular fishtail, and secured it with a pink ribbon which I’ve tied into a bow!
Those are my top 4 hairstyles for the festive season, I hope you guys enjoyed them, let me know which one is your favourite in the comments!
I recently noticed that my most popular hair tutorial is the Fishtail braid, so I figured since a lot of you guys liked it, but I know it can take a lot of time, if you want a similar effect but much quicker, today I’m sharing with you the 5 minute cheat version!
So as per usual, start out with a rocking side pony.
Then, part the hair above your hair elastic in two, and twist the ponytail back into itself.
Then tie another hair tie a little lower down on your ponytail and repeat, bringing the rest of the pony back into itself.
I then did that once more because my hair is a little longer. Then just take the hair elastics out, secure the end, and you’re done!
And just like that, you’ve got a faux-fishtail!
I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial, let me know if you try it out! And as always, don’t forget that you can request a post by going to my Contact Me page!
