We welcome the Yuletide season with a positive attitude topped off with a spanking new look to match. We’re pretty sure a handful of you are planning to get a haircut or a new hair color to ring in the first of January with, but if you’re not yet prepared for a drastic change, styling it differently is another way to go. Suprise everyone by showing up looking like you spent hours getting ready at the salon with a new 'do fit for a party. Below we gathered our favorite from All Things Hair where Laureen Uy, Angela Nepomuceno, and Nicole Andersson teach us easy step-by-step tutorials that anyone can wing in a jiffy–we pinky promise!
DIY Twisted Side Bun
Celebrating Christmas Eve or New Year's at a hotel? You will need a chic updo to go with your elegant frock. Our suggestion? Take your bundle of hair to the side and add a few flirty twists for a clean but romantic take on the classic bun. The best part? It's not that hard to do! Learn how by watching Nicole Andersson show us in the video below.
DIY Side Swept Ponytail
To the left to the left...or maybe to the right if that's your angle. Instead of the usual ponytail at the back, sweep your tresses to one side for a relaxed yet party-appropriate 'do. If you want something easy but really pretty, this is a hairstyle that you can whip up in five minutes. Watch beauty blogger Angela Nepomuceno nail the look.
Still iffy about going short? Fool everyone by creating an illusion. Yup, there's a way to sport a bob without the need of a wig or a haircut. Who knows, this might be the very thing that will push you into finally chopping off your beloved tresses. See how Laureen Uy prepares her crowning glory for the trick.
Don't feel like sporting these? Head to allthingswhairPH for more video tutorials.
