BLOGMAS Day 22 // Christmas Hairstyles

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!

xmas hairstyles 2Cute 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!xmas hairstyles 3Messy 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.xmas hairstyles 1Half 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!xmas hairstyles 4Fishtail | 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!

Back To School 4 Easy Hairstyles

Easy Back To School HairstylesI know, how you’re going to wear your hair for when you go back to school isn’t at the forefront of your mind when you think about back to school. So don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. Today I’m sharing with you guys, 4 super easy hairstyles that you can wear when you go back to school!

High Ponytail with Headband | This hairstyle is super easy, and also great for hiding a bad hair day, or if your hair isn’t feeling really fresh, and you just want it up and out of the way. The headband makes this style look super cute and adds another element to it.

Two Braids | This hairstyle is a little more work, but if you can french-braid hair, then this style is very achievable. You simply braid your fringe back from your face, and secure it with a hair elastic, then you braid a section of hair that’s roughly the same size away from your face on the other side. Then you join the two braids together.

High Messy Bun | This hairstyle is one of my favourites when I really don’t want to do anything with my hair, but I don’t want it in my face, or getting in the way. (This style is also super useful for if it’s a really hot day, as all of your hair is up, and not tickling you neck, or making it sweaty!) I have a post on how to do this style, but all it really is, is a high ponytail, you twist is to collect all of the hair together, and then wrap it around the base of the ponytail, then secure it all with another hair tie.

Messy Braids | If you’re not a particular fan of a ‘styled’ look, and you prefer to have your hair down and messy, then this style could work for you! All you have to do is flip all of your hair to one side of your head, then secure it with some bobby pins, just so you don’t have to keep moving it all back over to one particular side. Then just add some random braids in wherever you like, the point is to make it look messy and casual. You can add some salt spray if you’d like, to keep your hair tousled all day.


That’s it for some simple hairstyles for back to school, I hope you guys try these out! If you do, be sure to let me know which one was your favourite!
