As the Christmas season nears, a multitude of holiday get-togethers, parties and office gatherings are held. Whether you are ironing out the wrinkles of an old party standby or need something to complement a new purchase, changing your hairstyle and/or hair color makes one of the best accessories for any Christmas event. For this special holiday season, why not try something new with your appearance? Starting with your hairstyle and hair color, you will be able to leave a longer-lasting impression on family, friends and co-workers that will continue well after the presents have been unwrapped and the Christmas tree taken down.
Choose an Updo
Holiday parties are the perfect place to reveal your new Christmas hairstyle or coloring. When it comes to bringing out the best of a sleek cocktail dress or just brightening up your spirits, you cannot go wrong with an updo. There is just something quite sexy and appealing about the tantalizing arrangement of locks on the crown of your head.
With side swept hair, you can breathe life into the classic chignon, which brings about a touch of class and sexiness with its alluring strands of hair peeking from the top of a twisted creation. Often created without a bang, this year, bangs are once again a rage when it comes to enhancing some of the hairstyles we all know and love. This is a great choice for people who have medium to long lengths of hair.
Give It a Flip
You have the cutest party dress in your closet that you have been dying to pull out. What kind of hairstyle will complement this attire choice? A flip accentuates cuteness, as well as oozes a fun and vibrant appearance. Flips also give character to shorter hair lengths. The two main hair flips to try out this Christmas season is the fun and flirty look of hair that is flipped on both sides of the face. This is one of the best options to consider when bringing out a free flowing party dress. Another popular flip for this year focuses on the turning up of hair located close to the base of the neck.
Do you want to hide your fun personality all at and wish to present a little bit of mystery? Try the more sophisticated and toned down version of the flip by focusing on turning up the bottom portion of longer hair lengths. Use a side part to shift hair across one side of the cheek to further display an alluring look for this Christmas season.
Cannot Go Wrong With Ringlets
Looking for a new hairstyle for the Christmas season that is the complete opposite of how your peers normally view you, turn straight hair into an explosion of seductive ringlets. People with ultra-curly hair have been utilizing this sexy look for years, but for those who have straight hair, spiraling your locks will offer a new you for the holiday season.
Work Those Highlights
For those holiday get-togethers that arenot formal enough to bring out your tight sequined dress, a simple, yet appealing casual hairstyle is needed. Highlights are perfect for gift exchanges between friends, who are more concerned with passing the egg nog and sitting in front of the TV for a host of Christmas-related movies than partying the night away. Use soft highlights to achieve a fresh look that will receive subtle attention. Using highlights with a new hairstyle also brightens the face.
Add Just the Right Accessories to Classic Hairstyles
Hair accessories can turn any classic hairdo into a sexy new look or allow you to express the fun side of the holiday season. Loose curls flowing from the top of your head or a sleek ponytail with accentuated bang or side sweep are just some of the many choices for a new hairstyle during the Christmas season.
Decorative bobby pins and barrettes are great at holding back the sides of a new hairstyle or creating just the right position for a fresh set of bangs. Add softness and class to your hairstyle by choosing pearl or rhinestone-encrusted selections. Delicate crystals set in silver or gold also bring out the most of a Christmas ensemble. Covered rubber bands (gold, silver or brightly colored) can add pizzazz to newly colored hair tied back in a ponytail. These enchanting accessories can also make French twists sparkle and tight buns dazzle.
Flappers Have All the Fun
With a seductive wave of hair, the hairstyle associated with the 1940s flapper is still a novelty style that adds sultriness to a Christmas wardrobe. Although this hair choice best complements naturally wavy locks, it is still possible for other types of hair to benefit from this conversational piece of a hairdo. A hairstylist might just have to use extra gel, hairpins and curlers to bring this look together for you.
Loose is Good
Loose hairstyles can serve a purpose for both an intimate gathering and a casual get-together. Loosely pin up the bulk of your hair to the top of your head and allow the loose strands of hair on the sides of your face to work wonders for the frame of your face. This Christmas season, you may also utilize a zigzag part in your hair, which will take you well into the New Year.
Gel is Your Friend
Short hair will rock this Christmas season when you make gel your best friend. Pixie hairstyles give women with super-short hair a boost of fresh attention and possibilities.
Curls, Curls Everywhere!
Curls have really worked for women with long hair for many years, but ladies with straight locks can also benefit this Christmas season with an infusion of this sexy feature. Leave straight hair to lie to your shoulders with the ends curled. Your sure to have heads turning at any holiday event.
Hair Coloring for the Holidays
The Christmas season brings about change and rebirth. Why not revamp your hair with a new color that will also make New Years Eve all the more pleasant? Not ready for the commitment? Take baby steps and invest in highlights. Sexy shades like toasted almond or golden honey are popular highlight options. Amber and caramel tones really bring out sexy eveningwear as well.
There are a wide range of colors to choose from that can provide any style or new look you desire. Surprise friends with a sun-kissed blonde coloring job. Darken your current color, which will create the perfect frame for your face. Lighten your locks to soften facial features. The possibilities of a new hair color are endless, as are the new hairstyles awaiting your holiday upgrade.
