This Christmas will be far different from the last. We’re back with festivities, parties, and spending time with loved ones. But that also means getting party-ready for all the Christmas dos and New Years’ parties to come. 

We’ve all faced the struggles of finding the perfect outfit, makeup and hair to pair together last minute. Whether you’re going out for a party or spending it at home with loved ones, you want to be wearing something that makes you feel the most confident – and when it comes to holiday hairstyles, we’ve got exactly that covered, with plenty of hair styles and hair tips for all types and lengths. You’ll be feeling and looking your best in absolutely no time at all.

Here are some easy party hairstyles for you to get excited over and rock over the festive holiday season. 

Beach wave bob

We all love the classic beach wave look – but it’s not just for the summer. With bobs in trend this season, the simple, stylish beach wave bob is an easy hairstyle to wear at a Christmas party, and all you really need are a pair of straighteners and a curling wand!

The backcombed blowout

A backcombed blowout is a timeless classic and can completely revitalize a whole entire look. It’s equally appropriate for a quiet family lunch or fun girls’ night-out. With the right roller brush, hairdryer, and mousse combination, it will quite literally take your hair from flat and lifeless to full and bouncy in ten minutes. And if you want to add a little more to the look, turn the small waves into a half-updo with some bobby pins. Simple!

Choppy faux bangs 

Want the bangs without the commitment? Faux bangs are the answer you’ve been waiting for.

Styling Choppy faux bangs is a straightforward process (and far less maintenance than actual bangs). And all you need are bobby pins. Take front pieces of your choppy hair into sections and pull to the back of your hair – like you’re creating an up-do. Secure with bobby pins near the root and bring the rest of your hair forward. Ta-da!

Sleek high ponytail

When you have short hair, up-dos aren’t always the go-to. But that doesn’t mean you can't style one with short hair. Grab some hair extensions, a good bristle brush, and you’re well on the way to a sleek ponytail. For that Ariana Grande look, section a piece of hair to create a wrap around the ponytail and secure it down with bobby pins. 

The asymmetric cut

An asymmetrical bob or asymmetric haircut is easier to pull off than most think and has been worn by the likes of Margot Robbie and Rihanna. With a burst of color and good mousse, you can create a shiny and bouncy bob just in time for 2022. What better way to start off a New Year than with a hairstyle that screams fierceness and personality?

Layered waves

Feathered layers and beach waves in combination create the perfect free-flowing layered wavy look with ease. You can create this look with your natural hair, human hair extensions or adding a little color to embrace your inner bombshell. Bangs and waves are universally flattering for the face and bring your whole look together.

The low ponytail

There are plenty of styles to choose from when it comes to low ponytails. It’s one of the most popular and all-around hairstyles that’s suitable for running errands or dressing up for parties. Opting for a simple low ponytail not only looks and feels effortless but also keeps hair out of your face. You can even add a sparkly hairband, a festive-inspired ribbon or create a wrap around ponytail to make the most out of the festive look.

Timeless low bun

The low bun is a timeless hairstyle. It triumphs for any occasion – including your Christmas and New Year parties. It’s a great look that can take you straight from work to the dancefloor, and the best part is that it’s low maintenance and incredibly simple to get right. All you need are a bobble and bobby pins and you’re good to go. To achieve a fuller, more volumised bun, try adding hair extensions to take your look to a whole new level.

GHD curls

Whether you’re after thick, bouncy curls or soft beach waves – creating GHD curls hairstyles using a pair of straighteners works every time. To create this look, make sure to use heat protection on your hair or hair extensions to prevent any damage from heat. Wrap each section of hair around the straighteners like you would a curling iron, clamp down and pull slowly away from your head. This should leave you with the most satisfying, perfect curl. Repeat all over until you curl your entire head of hair.


New year, new hair?! Enter the New Year with a fresh look and a new you. Why not try something daring and like that awestriking mid-length bob you’ve always wanted. Luckily, there are plenty of options to bring your bob to life, like adding funky colors to take it from plain jane to disco queen in an instant. Embrace the festive cheer with a mix of festive colors and layered locks.

Bubble braids

Quick and convenient, bubble braids are very similar to normal braids, and can be worn in a few easy ways like ponytails or pigtails. They’re super adorable and dress up any outfit. All you have to do is tie your ponytail with multiple hair ties an equal distant apart and tug on your hair strands in between the hair ties to create that bubble shape. Cute!

The 70s flip

The 70s flip, also known as the ‘Fawcett Flip’, became an unexpected popular trend this summer. It’s all about embracing the au-naturel. See into the New Year with an iconic hairstyle to bring some 70s vibes to your seasonal party style. Curl the hair away from the head and toward the root to perfectly frame the face.

Mermaid Vibes

It’s no secret we all love the mermaid hairstyle. Who doesn’t adore those flawless waves and vibrant colors? Embrace the funky “mermaid hair don’t care” personality and add a splash of color with luscious red waves for a fiery mermaid feel. Stun your family, friends, or co-workers with this daring style this Christmas.

Hollywood glamour

Looking for a classic glam style? The chic look will have heads-turning and even the paparazzi at your door. Popular amongst celebrity red carpet looks, this elegant and retro vibe dresses up or down. A great way to style your long locks this party season. This hairstyle is all about those perfect Marilyn Monroe Hollywood curls so that you’re always looking picture-perfect ready.

Half up half down

The ultimate classic, half up-and-half hairstyle is simple and easy, yet radiates elegant and effortless chic. It’s your usual hair down look but just slightly elevated, and can be great to show off a pair of statement earrings or a choker necklace.

The list of easy hairstyles for a Christmas party and New Year night-out is absolutely endless, so be sure to take your look to the next level and make use of hair extensions, accessories, and styling tools to help you create the perfect look for you to wear at your own Christmas and New Year parties.
