It’s that time of year where you and your friends are sending pictures of potential new hairstyles to the group chat, by the dozen. And while some friends may be aiming for the big chop or wet and wavy look, you have your eyes set on styles that are a bit more, in the words of Joanne the Scammer, iconic.
Here are four holiday hair looks that will have old baes hoping and praying that you’re under their Christmas tree.
Santa Baby Red
You’ll make Santa late with his gift deliveries (and forget he has a Mrs.) with this fiery-red color and sleek bob, . To achieve this look, purchase two bundles of our 14” Indian Straight Dark Blonde hair along with its matching frontal closure, then find the right shade of red that will complement your skin complexion. I’m a fan of Crème Of Nature’s Exotic Shine red dye line because it’s made with argan oil—perfect for keeping your extensions moisturized and looking healthy. Once you've dyed and styled your new red hair, get ready to find yourself under a mistletoe or two!
Stealing Hearts And Christmas
With this edgy look, you should expect your conservative aunties to sing your (style) praises and not throw shade.
Create this lob look by using three 12 “Brazilian Straight blonde bundles for a sew-in or clip-in extensions. To ensure that you don’t end up looking like the Grinch, watch beauty blogger Chimere Nicole’s video on how to correctly dye your extensions green. To get started all you’ll need is a green hair dye to deposit the color. We recommend Adore’s semi-permanent dye in Lime to achieve this specific look.
Winter White Christmas
When OITNB's Dascha Polanco debuted her Storm inspired hair-do last year, many of us couldn’t wait to follow in the Dominican actress' footsteps. But before you jump to recreate her or the model above hairstyles, don’t purchase bundles that match your hair color.
To achieve this look, start with Mayvenn Loose Wave blonde hair in 14”, 16” and 18” bundles. If you don’t want to fuss with your natural hair, make sure to also add a matching a closure or frontal.
Before dying the hair gray, make sure to also grab a purple hair toner. Why? According to Buzzfeed Style Editor Julie Gerstein, “It directly counteracts the yellow undertones in hair to give you the white-silver color.” After setting the purple toner on the blonde bundles for 20 minutes, rinse it out and then add the gray hair dye (which will look purple) on top of your toned hair. Let it sit for 30 minutes. Once you rinse out the color and let it dry, you should have the flyest ice cold color for winter.
Be Someone’s (Gold) Star
If you want to feel Hollywood this Christmas definitely turn up your blonde hair color, a shade or two. After purchasing and receiving your Straight Indian Dark Blonde bundles from Mayenn, use our “Which Blonde Is Right For You?” quiz to find the perfect blonde shade!
For the holiday season, we’re feeling the Golden Blonde and Ombre Blonde looks. You can achieve the Golden Blonde look by highlighting your bundles with Revlon’s Color Effects Frost & Glow Honey dye. Or, if you’re interested in the Ombre Blonde shade, hair blogger Dee Doherty said she used the following products: Schwarzkopf Blonde Ultîme in LXX and Clairol Nice'n Easy in 6A Natural Light Ash Brown to achieve the sultry color.
