  • Festive outfits and hairstyles are part of the holidays whether you join a friendly get-together or a formal party. Even the family Christmas dinner calls for a festive appearance. Your hairstyle should be glamorous as well. Today, styling is easy and quick with the right styling tools and products, which keep the hairstyle intact all the way through the celebrations.

  • Tools for Styling Special Holiday Hairdos

    Blonde or brown, curls and waves always look elegant. Use a curling or flat iron to give your hair the right texture and manageability. This will make the styling easier, hairpins and slides will stay in place, and every styling element will look better longer.

    Hairspray (extra-hold hairspray if required) provides long hold for your festive hairstyle.

    You don’t have to have fine hair to consider volumising powder an immensely useful styling product because it improves the hair texture and manageability. This is particularly helpful for festive hairstyles, which must stay in shape for many hours.

    A fair amount of extra-gloss hairspray makes even an ordinary chignon look festive. Extra-gloss hair wax adds more glamour still.

    Holiday festivities are also the right time for hair accessories and sparkling hair jewellery. Their playful light and colour play is bound to delight.

  • In his video tutorial, Schwarzkopf hair expert Armin Morbach demonstrates how you can create elegant updos and enhance them with hair jewellery.

If your hair is long enough you can also create a faux bob by first gathering your hair in a ponytail and then sliding the scrunchy down to the hair ends.
