Check out these cute hair extension ideas for the perfect holiday hair!

Holiday Hair Extension Ideas

Bigger can be fabulous when it comes to holiday hair, and extensions are a great way to add volume and texture to your standard haircut. For the best holiday hairstyle results, use a hair mousse or volumizing shampoo before styling, and spritz with a light coat of hairspray to lock in any flyaways. All of these hairstyles look great under beanies and earmuffs, too!

Glamorous Hollywood Curls

Need hair extension ideas for long hair? What better way to celebrate the holly jolly season than with big Hollywood curls! Hair extensions look best when they’re styled with some texture, and big, sweeping curls are just the thing to show off your long locks. 

Try overnight heatless curl methods, or curl your hair with a large curling iron. Curling irons with a one or two-inch barrel are ideal for adding big waves and volume. You’ll look like you stepped straight from a classic movie!

Bright and Bouncy Braid

Braids have been used for centuries to mark special occasions and celebrate natural beauty. This is the perfect hairstyle for a casual holiday party or night out on the town. Plus, it’s super easy to create and helps your extensions blend seamlessly!

Pull your hair up to the crown of your head and secure it in a ponytail. Loosen and flip the ponytail under and through itself to hide the elastic and add volume to the base of your head. Create a large braid and secure it with elastic, then gently fluff each loop on the braid to make it bigger. 

Merry Messy Bun

A messy bun is one of the best hair extension ideas for short hair. A messy bun allows you to keep your locks up and out of your face while still enjoying some extra oomph. 

Sweep your hair up to the crown of your head and secure a ponytail with a hair elastic. Use your fingers to gently tease the ponytail until it becomes messy and fluffy, then pin it into a big, voluminous bun. For an extra holiday flair, tie a velvet bow into your hair.

Fierce and Festive Colors

Let your hair extensions themselves do all the talking; opt for extensions and a fresh hair color that compliments the season. Think warm gingerbread, sleek raven black, or even festive red or green. Any hairstyle will look gorgeous when your hair color suits the holiday season!
