Decked Out Christmas Tree Hair
Go big or go home for the holidays! Why decorate a Christmas tree when you can be the Christmas tree? We love this soft but festive combination of light pink and green. Lock your look in place with a high hold hair spray like Redken’s Triple Take 32.

Christmas ornaments look great on a tree, but they look even better nestled in a stunning half-up crown braid. Complete your look with a few sprigs of holly and some red and green temporary dye and you’ll be the talk of your holiday Christmas party.

Going to work with an entire Christmas tree on your head may be a lot to ask for, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find a work-appropriate compromise! Stick a spring of pine and holly in your hair for a yuletide hairstyle you can wear anywhere.

Christmas Tree Lights
Ornaments get most of the attention on Christmas, but we all know string lights are the real MVP. With this style, you can light up the room with Christmas cheer wherever you go—literally.
We’re dreaming of a white Christmas, but climate change may have another idea in mind. If you’re missing snowflakes this holiday season, adorn your hair with snowflake ornaments. Finish your style with Redken’s Triple Dry 15 to give your strands some much-needed texture.
