Half-Up Hair With Braids

Show off your neckline and face while still letting your hair down with the half-up braids style. Style the bottom half with bouncy, loose curls framed with textured braids. The best way to achieve tousled hair is with long layers. This hairstyle is sporty-chic and easy to pull off.

  • Create a wave pattern with the bottom half of the hair.
  • Use pins to loosely secure hair.

Half-Up Hair Tied Up in a Bow

Nothing says holiday cheer like a festive bow. For a pristine and playful style, wear your hair half up tied in a bow and the rest down with loose curls. Surprisingly, this hairstyle takes little effort and is easy to achieve.

  • With a comb, separate and gather your hair up and back.
  • Secure with a rubber band and tie the bow around the band.

Scarf With a High Bun

A scarf wrap with a low or high bun is very chic. A silk scarf is an elegant and winter-approved accessory with two functions: to add glamour to your look and keep your head feeling cozy during Great White North’s frosty nights.

  • Choose a long scarf that will cascade below your neck.
  • Pin up a loose, high bun.
  • Wrap the scarf around your head and create a loose bow above the nape.

Low Bun With Headscarf

We’re predicting a full wind hair scarf revival this winter. Wear with full-fringe bangs to frame the face. This old-Hollywood glam look is perfect for any holiday soiree.

  • Style an easy-to-achieve low bun.
  • Once the scarf is wrapped around the head, tie it around the neck.

Topknot With Accessories

The samurai-inspired topknot is fun, bold and ideal for a relatively no-fuss updo. The higher the bun, the better. Festoon your hair with your favorite hairpin bling to finish the look. This is an effortless, versatile style that works with any ensemble.

  • Spray your hair with a nourishing sheen spray before styling hair.
  • Use a comb to pull hair up in a taut ponytail before creating the topknot.

Messy Pigtail Braids

Messy pigtails are youthful, flirty with a Lolita-esque vibe. For a low-maintenance hairstyle, create loose braids and gently pull strands of hair out to frame the face. Virtually anyone can pull off braids. As a perk, you’ll have soft wavy tresses when you take the braids out.

  • Use a comb to separate hair down the center.
  • Use your hand to gather and loosely braid.
