Last year we had fun coming up with some new festive Christmas hairstyles, like our Braided Christmas Tree Hairstyle, Santa Hat Hairstyle & our fav from last year, the Christmas Tree Pull-Through Braid.
Today’s style is totally easy and quick so you can still whip together a cute Christmas hairstyle even if you’re in a hurry!
Here’s our quick video, and below that are the step-by-step instructions along with what we used for our decorations and even more pictures of this cute and festive style!
Step 1 – Part on a diagonal from the temples back to the crown so you create a triangle shape section of hair
Step 2 – Make a ponytail with that triangle section at the top point of the triangle near the crown. Secure it with a clear elastic.
Step 3 – Gather all remaining hair down in back into a low ponytail near the center of the nape of the neck. Secure with an elastic or ponytail holder.
Step 4 – With the ponytail on the crown, create a regular 3 strand braid
Step 5 – Leave the top of the braid tight, but gradually make it looser as you go
Step 6 – Begin to pancake the lower portion of the braid so the base is wider than the top, like a Christmas tree
Step 7 – Secure the braid with a clear elastic to the base of the ponytail at the nape of the neck
Step 8 – Once the braid is secured, go back and gently adjust the braid so it has the shape you want for your tree
Step 9 – Optional – Wrap the base of the ponytail with hair to cover the elastics
Step 10 – If desired, decorate your Christmas tree
Last year we used little pom pom’s but this year I found some cute Christmas color sprigs with little beads on the end. I think you’d normally stick these into your tree or a wreath but I cut them off near the bead and then hot glued them onto some hair pins. I created the star out of some fuzzy silver pipe cleaner I had on hand. You can decorate the tree any way you like. You could thread some ribbon around the “tree” like garland and that would look really cute too.
