Holiday season is officially here with all the necessary decorations, exciting preparations and gift hunting. And while Santa Claus is working on my extended wish list this year, I started to gather ideas on how to make myself look special during this festive time.


One of the hardest parts of the Christmas outfit is actually the hair. You want it to look outstanding, that’s why before you go to your hairdresser, it is always better to have a proper idea in mind. I always come prepared and send pictures with the look that I want to achieve to my stylist in advance. This saves a lot of time, energy and nerves, especially before important events.

So, here is my list of the coolest 11 Christmas party hairstyle ideas, which will be perfect for New Years parties as well. I have also added video tutorials of these hairdos, which I found on YouTube, just in case you want to try and do it yourself. And if after browsing all these hairstyles you will still feel like it’s not enough, check out my list of other 10 hairdos here.

Braided hairstyles are still one of my favorite. You can never go wrong with such hairdo. You can wear it like a french fishtail braid or can gather all your hair in a neat updo. Either way this look is very feminine and stylish. The only important thing to remember is that the braid should be done very neatly and professionally. I won’t trust myself to make such hairstyle on my own.
