Best Christmas, New Years Hairstyles

Here we show off holiday hairstyles for Christmas, New Years and more. See more holiday updos modeled by celebrities in this photo gallery.

This holiday hairstyle, modeled by actress Brittany Murphy, is a classic updo for curly hair. Simply pull hair up and secure on the top of head. Use a dry powder shampoo (baby powder also works well) to add fullness, a rattail comb to tease hair up & a soft-hold hairspray. The looser the curls, the cuter the look.

Women of all ages can get away with this look. It does help if your hair is medium to long.

  The French twist is great for prom, weddings or any formal occasion. Here's how to do it:

  1. Slick back hair with gel. You can part hair on the side for a more stylish, trendy look or slick hair completely back with gel.
  2. Pull hair down at nape of neck & twist it. If your hair is super-silky, you might want help with a 'hair rat.' (I know, sounds awful, but it works). You can get these at any beauty supply store. These were used in the '30s & '40s to help women with upsweeps & French twists.
  3. Pin the twist into place. You will want to make sure you use enough pins.
  4. Spray your French twist with hairspray.
