Natural Holiday Hair Essentials
The holiday season can be a whirlwind, so before you set out on selecting that style, let us make sure we keep our scalp and hair follicles in excellent shape to get us through a rewarding, albeit sometimes challenging, season. For most, depending on what part of the world you live in, holiday hair care involves a couple of considerations.
One, you have to think about the weather. As Fall transitions to Winter, your hair can take a beating. Wind, precipitation, and cold air can suck the life right out of your hair. More specifically, it sucks the moisture out of your hair. Natural hair requires lots of moisture to avoid dryness and hair breakage. But this leads us to the second thing you need to consider, the time spent indoors.
With the weather, now cooler thermostats get pushed up. The result is offices, stores, and homes are flush with warm, dry air. While your body may feel warm and cozy, your hair is not. The result is moisture from your hair gets sucked out while indoors as well as outdoors. Plus, you are indoors much more than in the warmer months. Couple this with the stress of the holiday season, and your hair takes a beating.
Don't forget the clothes either. The need to stay warm and cover your head from precipitation is now a factor. Hats, scarves, and oversized sweaters can rub and snag your hair. Hair that is now more prone to being dry and brittle from dry outdoor cool air and dry warm indoor air. This can exacerbate hair damage.
So, before you can even think about how to style it, make sure you take care of it. Fortunately, there are tools to help you manage holiday or winter hair. Luster’s® Pink® Shea Butter Coconut Oil Collection (SBCO) is a perfect line of hair care products to help you keep your hair healthy and styled over the holidays.

Holiday Hair Styles
Choosing the actual hairstyle doesn't have to be complicated. With healthy, hydrated hair, your style options are wide open. Another consideration is practicality. You want attractive styles but keep hair out of the way while you are on the move. Cooking, shopping, and entertaining mean you are in motion. You want looks that are easy to set and forget. Here are a variety of style ideas you can use and new variations of those looks.
Short And Simple Hair
Short hairstyles offer a lot of options. A short pixie or bob cut affords style but is easy to maintain. Adjusting the taper on the back of the head can allow you different looks. Likewise, streamlining the top or sides can take your style choices in new directions. Even short tapered hair with curls on top is eye-catching. A simple addition like a headband can also give you a fresh look without spending extra time.
A ponytail may be a traditional style. That does not mean you cannot dress it up in new ways, even for the holidays. You can enjoy the holidays with confidence and ease, from a simple traditional style to a textured Pom Pom ponytail.
Keep It High And Simple
One easy way to dress up those natural locks into your holiday party style is with a high ponytail. This is a simple ponytail placed high on top. Accessorize it, and you’re ready for any gathering. This style is easy to do and maintain from a practical standpoint, but it doesn't have to be plain.
Accessorizing The Ponytail And Beyond
An effortless and beautiful way to enhance the look of the natural ponytail is with hair accessories. Clips, pins, bows, string, and hair ties can allow you to coordinate it with different outfits. This is one of the easiest ways to add elegance to an effortless look. You can also style the actual ponytail in more unique ways. One idea is a braided ponytail. Another is a Pom Pom ponytail. You can also do a side braid ponytail as well.
Accenting The Front
A simple accent to accompany the hair is also an option. Tendrils, bangs, or wavy edges are a simple way to add new elegance to this ageless style. The edge gel is perfect for helping you define the edges and eliminating frizz.
Up Up And Away: Putting Your Hair Up
Another practical way to style your hair for the holidays is by putting it up in several ways. If you have curls put it up in a puff or bun shape in the back but let the curls sweep around the bangs. You can even have a messy bun with some hair pulled back and long signature curls flowing over the front. Additionally, you can also let the puff sweep to the side for a different look. For additional variety, add cornrows in front of the puff or bun.
Flip it Up Front
You can also flip this idea as well. A simple bun, puffs, or pompadour can be moved around to create new looks. Just put the hair up in front in a bun or puff but let the curls flow out the back. You can even add some panache to a bun by braiding the top giving a different spin on a classic style. You can also push styles like the puff or bun to the side for variety.
For Longer Natural Hair Wrap It Up
Another idea, especially If you have a lot of hair, is to put it up in a high puff and then accentuate it with a head wrap. You can add braids as well, letting them flow out of the top of the wrap. The wrap will help keep them out of the way.
This look may seem a little extreme, but it is relatively simple. Just push the hair up, and you have a whole new set of looks with this edgy-chic selection. Some variations include having a braided faux Hawk. The sides themselves now offer additional style options. Add cornrows or leave the sides short to maximize the effect.
Bantu Knots are another style option this holiday season. Like other styles, there are many style options to make this look your own. You can alter the size of the knots. Accordingly, you can make bigger or smaller knots. You can even vary their size, position, and symmetry. You can also accessorize them with pins or jewelry. Additionally, you can add tendrils to the front for another take on this style.
And Don't Forget to Moisturize.
Whatever style you choose, always remember to make moisturizing a part of your hair routine. Dry, brittle natural hair can break. Our Shea Butter Coconut Oil Collection is designed to protect your hair on your many holiday journeys.
