Holiday Hairstyles


The side ‘do

The side ‘do is popular and you can create texture by using dry shampoo. You can also back comb hair for extra volume. You want to work with hair that’s not been freshly washed so it doesn’t slip around on you.

How to create the Side ‘Do? Pull hair into a ponytail holder on the side. Backcomb the ponytail so it maintains its texture. Then, wrap the ponytail into a loose bun and secure with pins. Add a little bling by using clips or pins with embellishments, or a festive ribbon.
