3 Hairstyles We're Thankful For!
Updated: Mar 8
The Holidays have begun, and we know you all want to look amazing whether you are having Thanksgiving dinner with family or at your office holiday party. If anyone understands how busy this time of year can be it’s hairstylists, so we are sharing 3 hairstyles that we are so THANKFUL to have during the holidays!
With all the Thanksgiving cooking (and cleanup after!), who wouldn't be thankful for the ever-so-easy ponytail!! There’s nothing more classic than a SIMPLE PONYTAIL, and if you have 20 people coming to your house for Thanksgiving dinner this year and just need something easy and quick, then the messy ponytail won’t fail you! To start this look, you can wave your hair with a wand/curling iron or you can leave it in a natural messy look, whatever you prefer! Next pull it back in a loose pony and secure right above the nape of your neck, pulling out a few pieces in the front to frame around the face. (Hot tip: using a scrunchie will give this look an extra POP!) Whether it’s an all-up or half-up pony, this look will keep you looking trendy without the headache, so you can get back to those 20 people in your house!
Another super trendy look that we are so thankful it hasn’t gone away is the TOP KNOT, and lucky for you this one is also quick and easy! To start, you can again either wave your hair using a wand or curling iron, or let your natural wave show through! Next, section out the top layer of your hair and gently pull it back to the crown of your head (don’t pull too tight to your scalp or you will loose volume). Twist to create a messy bun and secure with a hair tie. It’s ok if it doesn’t look perfect…the messier the better! Again, accessorizing with a scrunchie or even a scarf will give this look a little something extra!
Finally, the third look we are loving for the Thanksgiving season is the EFFORTLESS BUN. This look is all about a low bun that sits just at the nape of the neck. You can start by securing a loose and low ponytail, just like the one from the first look above. Next, take the ponytail and loosely wrap it into a bun, then secure it with bobby pins. It’s OK to have some pieces hanging out…the point is for it to be messy and effortless! If your hair is fine and your pony needs a little more texture, you can spray it with a texture spray, like Pureology’s Wind Tossed, before wrapping it into a bun.
And there you have it! Three simple hairstyles that will keep you looking trendy while you celebrate the holidays!
Lastly, most of you know that the holiday season is our busiest time of year, but here at Elleven we are never too busy to say Thank You to all of our clients, friends, and family who have supported our salon and contributed to our success—you truly are a gift!
