Festive Hairstyles to Glam Up your Holiday Look

Published date 14 December 2023

Back to article listing

Party season is upon us, and what better way to enter the new year than with a banging hair-do?

We get it - a fresh out-the-salon look never lasts as long as we'd like it to. But fear not! We have the best solution for your clients who want to revive their salon-styled hair at home. From chic accessories to full-on glam, let's dive into how your clients can achieve these easily re-createable hairstyles for any festive occasion. 

Hollywood Curls

Achieve timeless elegance with these vintage-inspired Hollywood curls that are red carpet worthy. Start by applying the Shed force-field heat protectant to your whole head, and go in with the Alfa Italia Tropea pro multi-curl kit using the 32mm barrel (the bigger the better!). This will create the stunning formation of a Hollywood curl - full, voluminous, and classic. Once finished, spray the Shed Highrise hairspray so your curls last all night long. Gently brush through the curls to achieve the finished soft Hollywood hair-do that will be sure to steal the spotlight. 

A Spiky Bun 

This off-duty model flicky bun is the ideal low maintenance hairstyle to recreate for your Christmas party. With only a few simple steps, achieve elegance within a short span of time! For this tightly slicked-back look, we recommend using the Denman Edge Tamer brush to slick back any loose strands or flyaways, to ensure a precise and polished finish. Make sure to leave the ends loose for the spikes, to create a dramatic 90's flair finish.  

Sleeky Straight

If your go-to hairstyle is curls or waves, why not switch it up? Achieve the smoothest hair of your dreams with the amika velveteen dream smoothing shampoo & conditioner, for your silkiest mane yet! For that extra glossy feeling, we recommend going through your hair with the Alfa Italia Sessione Lustro Grande styler that tames frizz and flyaways, due to their ionic titanium plates. Say goodbye to frizz and transform your tresses into silky smooth locks that will shine throughout the night. 

Mermaid Waves 

Want to flaunt your luscious long locks? We have just the hair-do for you. This winter, release your inner summer vibe with these glamorous waves that will last for days! We believe these beachy waves add style and glamour to any look, at any time of year. To achieve these curls, use the Alfa Italia Tropea pro multi-wave styler to create the ideal mermaid wave. If you want to create a tighter and more defined wave, we recommend curling smaller sections of hair. For a looser wave, use larger sections of hair for a more effortless look. Finish with the Shed Mirror mirror for a super shiny result.

Voluminous Pony

Don't settle for a flat ponytail this party season when you can elevate your 'do' to new heights! Give your hair that extra oomph to an everyday style that will bring drama and ultimate volume. We recommend using the Shed Foam party to plump up your hair while protecting it from heat. Simply add the mousse onto damp hair, from root to tip, and blowdry to watch the volume come to life. Upgrade your go-to style with this easy-to-do lifted look.

Bouncy Blowdry

Unlock the secrets to an at home salon-style blowout and master voluminous curls all year round. Create *the* bounciest curl with the Alfa Italia Bella blowdry brush that combines a hairdryer and round brush into one. The key to mastering the at home blowout is precisely sectioning the hair and working in small segments. This will ensure no strand goes untouched by volume! Elevate your styling game and achieve a glamorous hair-do bound to make heads turn.

A Preppy Accessory


Let your hair take centre stage by accessorising this party season! From ribbons and bows to headbands, we are obsessed with these add-on accessories that take every hairstyle to the next level. For extra preppiness, we love creating a flipped-out end to the hair that pairs perfectly with straight, glossy locks. To achieve this, we recommend using the Alfa Italia Sessione Lustro styler, which easily glides through the hair and allows for a bending motion once it reaches the ends of the hair. Results will show a super chic hair flip that adds extra oomph to any hairstyle!

Slicked Back Pony

Combine simplicity and sophistication to your festive-do with this slicked back pony that will compliment any Christmas attire. For that polished look, we recommend using the Shed Clay dough to tame any flyaways for the ultimate party-proof hairstyle.


Master all things styling with our festive hair inspiration to see you through the party season, and into the new year.
