Creating easy festive hairstyles for the holiday season is something I love doing with my daughter. It’s just a good chance for us to sit and bond over some pretty and cute hairstyles.

When it comes to coming up with some easy festive hairstyles you just need to make sure you have some great accessories. I’m all about red ribbons and bows. I’m all about sparkles and glitter and lace. The “fancier” the better.

The best thing about creating some easy festive hairstyles is that you can even take a basic ponytail and amp it up with the right hair accessories. You don’t have to go crazy coming up with ideas or worrying about having styles that will be intricate or complicated. The simplest is always best.

These hairstyles revolve around to long braids with ribbons. These are so simple to do and really take very minimal effort to create and style.

All you need for this hairstyle is: (6 hair elastics) and (3) ribbons. The ribbons can be any color/texture/pattern, just make sure they’re long enough for you to braid through the hair.

Steps for the Matching Braids:

  1. Make a ponytail in your hair.
  2. Take 2 ribbons and insert into the elastic band. Tuck them in so they don’t hang out.
  3. Divide the hair into 2 equal sections.
  4. Braid each section by using the ribbon as a 3rd braid section.
  5. Elastic band each section and “puff” the braid out (like I do in the video).
  6. Add some extra flair on top of the base of the ponytail.

  3. This will create the braided wrapped bun!

Remember that creating fun hairstyles is something that anyone can do. I started my hair tutorials because I wanted to show other moms and dads that you don’t have to be an expert at hair to create fun and beautiful hairstyles.

I was always daunted my hair tutorials I would watch and see and just think to myself, “I can’t do that!”

These hairstyles are for anyone to do. Moms, dads, grandparents, siblings, babysitters. I’ve working through the tutorials slowly on the YouTube videos so you can see up close and personal. I feel like it’s important to walk through something via video rather than just photos on a page.

Let me know what styles you end up trying and doing. I would love for you to subscribe to our YouTube channel! We’re having so much fun creating videos (we’ve already shot 10 of them, but will release 2 styles a week!).
