10 Christmas Party Hairstyles – Cute Holiday Hair Ideas 2020

Christmas parties are probably the most waited and the most adored ones during the cold season. However, being caught between gift shopping, party planning, cooking, and home cleaning might be a little bit stressful and you can neglect some other important things, such as taking care of yourself. 

Christmas is a special time for all of us, and you’ll want to look your best exactly at the arrival of Santa Claus, right? This year, don’t let your hair be messy on the most memorable night. Since in my previous article we discussed the most popular hairstyles for women, in this one I’ve rounded up my favorite Christmas party hairstyles and holiday hair ideas that will keep you in the festive spirit well into the new year. 

1. Vintage Hairstyle

From perfect shaped waves to curly bobs and detailed updos, the vintage hairstyle is back on top in 2020. It stood out in front of the test of time, and from the ’20s until now, vintage hairstyles are the perfect option for the modern-day, especially when we talk about an event that requires an elegant etiquette. Whether you think about having a charming look or a classic hairstyle, vintage is here to stay this Christmas.

2. Easy Waves

If you want to look like a fairytale princess on Christmas eve, waves are the perfect choice. Because there are so many styles that fall in the category, you can look unique by making it the way you wish. The best part about this hairstyle is that hot tools aren’t needed to get the look. You can get incredibly easy waves in your hair by simply coating your wet hair in a styling lotion and let it dry in two or three braids. Anyway, I’d recommend you to opt for the method that works best with your hair type. Last but not least, if you choose to get the perfect waves at home, check out this tutorial about how to get waves by making a sleep-in ponytail braid.

3. French Twist Hairstyle

There’s one classic thing you can rob from french women: their elegance. More specifically, their impeccably put-together hairstyle. Well, if you’re planning to go to a classy event this Christmas, a french twist might fit your elegant dress. 

A French twist updo is a stylish idea for a more formal event, but you can do it only if you’ve got long or medium length hair. This Christmas party hairstyle has a great advantage: as it’s light enough, it will easily last the whole night long, and you can enjoy the party without checking the mirror very often. Here’s a guide from L’Oreal Paris about how to create a classic french twist on your own.

4. Ponytail 

Practical, classy and chic, the ponytail is always a good idea. This Christmas party hairstyle is ideal for day or night, and it looks awesome both during the afternoon meetings and evening cocktails. The hair can be flawlessly straightened or even wavy, detailed with a hair wrap around the ponytail’s base. 

5. Side-Swept Hairstyle

Being the most often seen hairstyle on the red carpet, the side-swept, be it the whole hair or just the bangs, tends to be one of the cutest holiday hair ideas during the cold season this year. This look will keep you looking fresh, no matter the time of the day. What’s more, the side-swept hair highlights the jawline, making you look more skinny and also accentuates your jewelries. So, if you’ve got the perfect earrings this Christmas, be ready to wear them with a side-swept.

6. Hair Ribbons

Have you ever asked yourself if you still have the appropriate age to tie your hairstyle with ribbons? Don’t do it anymore, because in fact, hair ribbons have no age. A little black ribbon is a pretty touch on any elegant outfit, while a colored ribbon is a fun addition to your look. This is just a cute holiday hair idea, yet easy and fast to do. 

7. Boho Braids

The bohemian braids are best known for their effortless, carefree vibes and party-inspired styles. There are combinations of twists, partial updos, and even messy braids, all of them creating a beautiful bohemian hairstyle. Be creative this Christmas and get yourself one of the best Christmas party hairstyles.

8. Twisted Tie-Back

This is probably the most simple and classic hairstyle ever. All you have to do is to part your hair from the middle of your forehead, roll the right and the left sections towards the back of your head then attach some pins. As an extra, you can also put a ribbon for a plus of style and that’s all, you have a pretty Christmas party hairstyle in just 2 minutes.

10. Fishtail

Braiding is the easiest hairstyle skill that almost everyone masters, and even if fishtail looks a little bit more complicated, trust me it isn’t. You just have to divide your hair into 2 sections, take small parts from your original sections and weave over each other until you create the fishtail effect. That’s all you need to know if you want to create a fishtail for your Christmas eve: fast and effortlessly, looking stunning.
