Choosing the perfect holiday hair style
Jetting off on your long-awaited holiday gives you a perfect excuse for trying out a brand new and exciting barnet. You can go as freaky, sexy or preposterous as you like, and get away with it. It’s your holiday, and you deserve it.
From waves ready for a seaside to some tousled tresses, braided bangs or easy updos, sky is the limit of possibilities. I’ve rounded up for you some celeb inspired hairstyles that are a must-try if you’re about thinking outside the box when it comes to your “recharging the batteries” time of the year.
So, let’s cut the chit-chat and see some simple yet effective holiday magic.
It gives off a very elaborate feeling to it, but it’s quite simple to make. It’s also a girl’s favorite for those rushed mornings, as it’s very generous with your time. It’s even more of a hit if your hair is exceptionally long. It’ll blow your hair out of the water if done correctly.
We saw this hairstyle as Blake Lively proudly flaunted it in front of us, proving that there are other ways to go besides perfectly groomed tresses. The thing about her mammoth fishtail braid is the fact that it gets better as it gets messier. That being said, it’s a perfect hairstyle for sporting all day. Whether we’re talking sunbathing, sightseeing or other holiday activities, it’s a definite yes in every department.
Just allow yourself to mix things up a bit and awaken that boho goddess that slumbers inside every girl in the world.
Kissed by the Sun
If you’re in any kind of doubt, and we girls always are, picking lighter shades as a part of your holiday look could be a definite hit.
Sunkissed sections paired up with some blond highlights will provide pretty much any hairstyle with that quirky summer edge. That’s a true “let’s party” look right there.
Carrey Mulligan provided us with inspiration for beauties with short hair. Her tousled pixie crop with golden highlights is just what your short hair desires. Just make sure you’re using the right conditioner and shampoo that will help you keep your holiday barnet in top shape. That’s a must-do if you decide to go blonder.
Tidy Top Knot
All praise the omnipotent top knot! It’s a hairstyle made in heaven for your special holiday.
It’s insta chic, very easy to do, and it works well whether you washed your hair previously or not. We all like to be a bit lazy sometimes when it comes to our hair, and this hairstyle gives us a chance to get away with it. It’s a perfect answer to all your conundrums concerning holiday hair.
Good choice is bunging it up high like Kelly Osborne tends to do. You can even soften the overall look if you tease out some front baby hairs. Texturizing spray will provide you with a firmer hold in case you just washed your hair and can’t handle how slippery it is.
All that heat might get your fringe all hot and sticky. If you’re experiencing that kind of problems, you could go Kim K’s way, and simply braid it away.
It’s very simple to do. You start with center parting divide of your fringe and just plait it into your hair’s bulk. You can make it stay in place by using a simple kirby grip on each side.
Tousled tresses teamed up with this hairstyle will amplify your holiday glam factor to the max.
Tresses swept on the Side
This hairstyle will put you in the company of Jessica Alba, which is always a good place to be. It’s what I like to call “effortlessly sexy” hairstyle.
If you’re going to some location that’s very sunny, without the necessary time for topping up your roots, this hairstyle will make the most use out of your two-tone hair.
It’s the best way for blending your grown out roots that can be done very easily. It’s even easier if your hair features a natural curl while wet.
The Side Pony
This is a look that will turn some heads for sure. It’s most often described as super cute and insanely adorable. It’s also very easy to do, which makes it a perfect holiday option.
Daisy Love is really showing us how to own this look. Just be sure to make it work for you specifically by framing your face with some locks.
Sea Salt Waves
Holiday is the perfect time to give your hair that exotic beachy texture. This look is extremely easy to do, and it just spells get up and go. Perfect for our needs here. Just make sure you don’t overdo it with the bleach. If you do, your ends will look a bit frazzled, and we definitely don’t want that.
Just find a product that’ll add those beautiful windswept waves and body to your hair and spritz it all around while it’s still damp. Kate Hudson gave us the inspiration for this hairstyle.
Dianna Argon always manages to look super cute with this hairstyle. It will also make you look never less than perfect during your holiday time.
Ideal team-up for this style is a night of partying, freshly acquired tan, cocktail dress, and a Pina Colada in your hand. Just pin up and backcomb your front section to tease in some crown volume.
The ends should be tongs-curled and then set with some hairspray. All you have to do then is dance the whole night away.
Instead of talking in circles without offering anything concrete, I’ve decided to give you some of the hottest holiday hairstyles our celebs are flaunting currently.
I think I gave you a lot to think about, and all that’s left for you to do is explore, experiment and have fun. That’s what a holiday is all about after all.
