Festive hair flair doesn't stop at Santa hats. Whether you're staying home with your family or going all out for a swanky soiree, tons of items can add seasonal mirth to your look. For an easy DIY option, create a low side ponytail or messy knot and secure with a thin elastic. Then loop a ribbon or bobby pin through the base of a colorful gift bow (make sure to remove the adhesive first!) and tie or pin near the elastic. For a bit more glitz and glamour, check out our top picks in this winter’s hair accessories.
Not a fan of the traditional red, white, and green hues? Try this delicate neutral headband, which has tiny metallic threads woven into its lace design. Add a boho vibe to your holiday look by placing the band across your forehead.
If you feel like splurging on a luxe hair accessory this winter, opt for this star pin made of Swarovski crystals. The snowflake-inspired design—which comes in gunmetal or champagne—will be the crown jewel of your ensemble.
A holiday party isn't complete without boughs of holly! Pair these sparkling berries with an updo or weave them into a braided style for a flirty yet subtle effect.
With bows making a huge comeback in hairstyles recently, it’s the perfect time to add a few gift-inspired versions to your look. Choose a fun holiday color like this red silk style. The fancy effect will make a statement even without show-stopping shimmer.
