Glam Hairstyles Ideal for the Holiday Season

There’s no season like the Holidays more perfect to channel our inner glam and to embrace the fashionable wind of change. While we already got covered the party dresses and the sparkly accessories that go with them, it’s now high time to switch our focus onto the hair department, where some more inspiration is always welcomed. If you though about attending the December festivities wearing your hair straight, we challenge you to rethink the plan in order to add an extra dose of charm to your future appearances. We’re not talking anything too complicated.

But once in a while we must absolutely break of our routine and experience something new and that’s exactly why we plan on inspiring you to go beyond your limits and reach your best version at the end of this year. Here is what we have in mind when we think party glam!


We might have said it before but Diane Kruger is definitely one of the best sources of inspiration when it comes to stunning red carpet appearances, meaning glam, polished, chic and feminine. Paying special attention to even the most unnoticeable details, the gorgeous actress loves to experiment with clothes, hair and make-up. Maybe we should do too.

We thought her classic bun sported at the “Inescapable” premiere was the most glamorous yet edgy thing ever. Perfect for the Holiday season, the pretty top-knot inspired by the Valentino Fall 2012 couture show gives a soft edge, to a otherwise very feminine up-do. The trick to achieving this flawless hairstyle is to broke the ponytail into three sections and make sure to wrap them around the base one at a time. Some loose tendrils framing the face might make this look appear less stiff.


The utterly romantic “Anna Karenina” promo tour brought to our attention a series of beautiful up-dos that made Keira Knightley shine brighter than ever on the red carpet. One style in particular seemed like the perfect embodiment of grace, femininity and glamour.

Ideal for family dinners and chic parties held during the Holiday season, the romantic chignon is all about an understated sense of elegance that perfectly complements even the simplest gown in the best possible ways. Achieve this hair-style by parting your locks in two equal sections and proceed with twisting your hair around the neckline, then secure it with bobby pins.


Kesha really impressed everyone this year with her dramatic change of style spotted first at the the 2012 American Music Awards. We are all for this super-feminine and polished version of the young singer, and we hope that she will keep the inspiration bars high even from now on.

HerĀ deep-center part with soft curls channeled that old Hollywood glamour we all admire so much and determined us to select this hairstyle for our Holiday inspirational mood board. Complemented by an exquisite ear-cuff, this lovely side swept hair-do would make for an elegant but modern approach to the end of the year glam. And it’s not even that complicated to achieve.


If you long for something more intricate, more sophisticated and more loud for the Holidays, you should really take a cue from Amy Heidemann. Known for always sporting the most unusual and bold hairstyles that are equally cool and beautiful, the American singer, part of the duo pop sensation Karmin, is the one bringing the sophistication today.

Her amazing braided up-do sported at the 2012 American Music Awards is really to die for. The creative style, featuring a braided crown and an adorable knot at the top might not be the easiest to achieve, but it will surely be worth all the time in the world. Complemented by fiercely cat eyes and bright red lips, this hair-do is definitely one to keep in mind.
