Listen up ladies! Hairstylist Taylor Sutton of Dead Swanky in Fayetteville is so sought-after that her hair appointments have to be booked months in advance, but she took time out of her busy schedule to show us her very favorite holiday hairstyles, and explain how to get them too. They’re intended for women of every age and hair length, and are as easy as 1-2-3! So go ahead and try them for this weekend’s holiday bash. We may not have personal hairstylists for our big nights out, but these tricks will have you feeling red carpet ready in no time.
Thanks for stopping by, Taylor. The stage is yours!
There is little else that can put you in the holiday spirit like getting ready for a holiday party. Whether it’s slipping into that perfect cocktail dress or a new killer pair of heels, getting ready can set the tone for the evening. And having a hairstyle that is simple, chic and easy will only make the evening better! Here are a four of my favorite holiday hairstyles that work on short, medium, or long hair and that are guaranteed to turn heads at any holiday soiree. So grab a some hair tools and a glass of champagne… remember, getting ready is half the fun!

Loose Knot

The prettiest, easiest updo ever. This style looks great on hair that is a bit above the shoulders, but works for all lengths. First, let hair air dry a bit messy. Next, take a curling iron or flat iron and make some random curls throughout your hair, curling away from your face in the front. Tease roots and gather your hair at the nape. Shake your head a bit until some loose pieces fall down around the fringe area and top. Twist the remaining hair and loop around, randomly adding bobby pins. For a smoother knot, pull hair into a low ponytail first, then roll the end of your ponytail up and under the elastic, then secure bobby pins on each side. Use a smoothing pomade to tame any flyaways.

Vintage Waves

This look has been all over the red carpet lately. First, give hair a deep side part. Starting at the nape and working up in sections, curl hair with a 1-inch curling iron, wrapping all curls going the same direction around the head. Next, take a boar bristle paddle brush and brush the curls out, starting at the bottom of the hair and working up. It seems scary, but this gives the smooth, vintage look. Next, tuck hair behind one ear and secure with a bobby pin or sequin hair piece. Using hairspray, smooth down any flyaways and mist over entire style.

Glamorous Ponytail

This look is so easy and stunning. First, blow dry hair smooth with a paddle brush. With a fine-tooth tail comb, tease the crown of the hair. If your hair is especially fine, spray some dry shampoo at the roots for a little more lift and texture. For a sleeker look, comb hair straight back into a ponytail at ear level on the back of your head, being careful not to flatten too much on top. Secure with elastic, and wrap a small piece of hair from underneath the ponytail around the elastic with a bobby pin. If you have fringe, style as usual, then tease the crown and pull hair into a ponytail at the base of your neck. Secure with elastic and wrap hair around. Finish by using a flat iron to smooth the ends of the ponytail and spray with light hairspray.

Holiday Hair Accessories

The holidays are also a perfect time to experiment with hair accessories. A small jeweled clip or feather headband can transform your every day style into an elegant evening look. You can find clip-in hair pieces at your local beauty supply that can add length to a ponytail or a little more hair to your loose knot. The possibilities are endless… have fun trying them all! Happy Holidays!
