I’m all about trying to come up with hairstyles for the holiday that are simple and easy, but I love it when they also come out looking gorgeous, too.  It’s a perfect hair win-win for the holiday season.

I love it when Victoria asks me to do a bun hairstyle because I think they’re so pretty for a special occasion. I don’t always do bun hairstyles for school, so when it’s the holiday season I really try to do them whenever I can!

So cute, right? As you can see, it really is the perfect hairstyle for a special occasion. And you can use any ribbon you want. I smiled recently when someone told me that pink was the new red for this holiday season, so I wanted to go with a gorgeous pink satin ribbon for the bow!


1. Pull the hair into a low ponytail.

2. Three-strand braid the ponytail all the way down, adding a hair elastic at the bottom.

3. Take the braid and wrap it around the base, creating a wrap bun.

4. Take a ribbon and wrap it around the bun and turn it into a gorgeous bow tie.

It looks beautiful!

Hair Products We Love:
