5 Bejeweled Hairstyles That Are Perfect for the Holidays

The holidays are officially in full swing and that means it’s time to start planning your holiday party looks. While red lipstick and glittery eyeshadow have become makeup staples this time of year, there’s never really been a defining holiday hairdo. We’re thinking that bejeweled hair could quickly become the signature festive style. Get inspired to add a little razzle dazzle to your hair with these magical jeweled styles, below. 

Fairytale Magic

Weave delicate strings of pearls or crystals through any updo for a whimsical effect. When the light catches the gems just right, your hair will look aglow like twinkly holiday lights.

Pearly Bun

Adhering mini pearls to a chignon bun (or any style) is actually quite easy. According to stylist @polishedstylejustine, you can use eyelash glue to sturdily attach gems to the hair.  “The glue comes out with shampoo and a thorough combing,” she says.

Icy Gems

If you plan on rocking a slicked back style, scatter sparkling jewels all over your head for a look that commands attention. Tame any flyaways by spraying a strong hold hairspray — like the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Humidity Aerosol Hairspray, onto a toothbrush and brushing the hairs into place.

Confetti Party

Take the meaning of party pony to a whole new level by incorporating glittering confetti streamers. This hairstyle is perfect for New Year’s Eve parties.

Raining Pearls

Whether you have a winter wedding or just want to jazz up your holiday party ’do, adhering pearls to your loose waves subtly elevates the style.
