The holidays call for a little something extra for hair and this year some of the hottest trends are all about color and sparkle. From giving your hair a holiday color makeover to incorporating the kind of sparkly hair accessories that may be too much for any other season, here’s what to expect to see for holiday hair trends in 2017.

Add some Holiday Color

If you love to experiment with color, ask your stylist to give you a seasonal color makeover! This bold holiday hair from @thehairstylish is inspired by Christmas holly and features a powerful punch of red and some stunning holly hair ornaments. The fishtail braid pulls it all together for a stunning look for this festive season. After the holidays, head back to the salon to try a new shade or revert to your usual color.

Holiday Hair Bow

This fun bow style is gift and holiday inspired and works well with any hair color, though it is particularly stunning in silver. A half pony tail and some creative pinning are all that is needed for this delightful look, which is popular for both kids and adults. Tuck in some special ornaments or use hair gems for added bling on a special occasion.

This style features a slightly different take on the same idea of incorporating bows into the style for a holiday effect.

Sophisticated Updo

This year’s holiday looks are all about sophistication, and you can’t go wrong with a stylish and elegant updo. Sweep hair up into an elegant bun and accent with braids and metallic pieces for holiday cheer.

Dazzling Accents

Holiday parties are the best time of year for breaking out the hair accents that are too sparkly, too glittery and too over the top for any other season. Tuck a few shiny pieces into a braid, add to a sweeping updo or even include as an accent in your typical style. Metallic, glittering silver is one of the hottest style trends for 2017 holiday, so incorporating something special will make your holiday style truly stand out.
