If you’re going somewhere for the holidays, whether it’s a family dinner or a big New Year’s Eve party with all of your friends, the occasion calls for a special hairstyle that you don’t do all the time. The holidays are a time when you can get all glitzy and fancy and look a little more done up (as my grandma would say). And if you’re going to wear a pretty dress, why not pair it with an elegant hairdo?
Wondering where to start? YouTube has the answers. There are a bunch of fun holiday hairstyles out there and I picked a few that are easy to recreate on your own and will make you look a little more glam than usual. Wear these around Christmas or save them for New Years Eve – or use them twice! Here are 10 pretty and easy holiday hairstyle tutorials:

This is a two-in-one tutorial – the girl shows you how to make a pretty DIY headband. If you want to use one you already have, just skip to the 2:00 mark.
Holiday Braided Updo
This one is a lot easier than it looks. Bonus: it will keep your hair off your face for a worry-free style that will last hours.

Another ridiculously easy hairstyle that looks like you put a lot more effort into it than you did? The fishtail braid. It’s my favorite go-to. Watch my queen Lauren Conrad show you how to do it. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll be doing it in under two minutes.
