5 Natural Holiday Hairstyles


Deck your hair in festive adornments and natural styles, this holiday season we have some heat-free hairstyles to break any silent night. Utilizing bond building, frizz defying technology, we’re going to show you how you can achieve glamorous hair styles using a little bit of OLAPLEX and your natural hair texture. Luckily for your mane, not all holiday styles have to be achieved with a hot tool. *We’re loking at you, curling iron.* We’ve seen stars don a variety of heat-free party ready styles that need just a bit of styling product, creativity, and accessories! Whether you have curly or straight hair, there’s a style for you.

Braided Modern Regency Updo

This stunning twist on a Regency style updo gives the style a taste of modernity on Emily Ratakowski. The look is versatile and ideal for all hair types from straight to curly. Begin by prepping damp hair with OLAPLEX No.6 Bond Smoother to tame flyaways, and provide very light hold and definition. Next, add OLAPLEX No.7 Bonding Oil to add luxurious holiday shine throughout the head. Take two middle part sections and braid down, tying each end with a mini elastic hair band. Leave two sections of hair out at the front part, then secure the area behind it with a thin encrusted headband2. Take the braids and use them to cover the ends of the hair band, securing with a bobby pin. Gather the two sides together and connect in a low pony with an elastic hair band. Loosely begin to pin little sections of the pony around the bun towards the scalp for an effortless looking bun. To finish, twist the front sections, adding No.7 if needed for shine.

70s Loose Curls

This one is for the curlies out there. An almost effortless style shown here on Zendaya that just requires product and scrunching. Start with damp micro fiber towel dried hair (you can also use an old t shirt to dry the hair). Use a light defining no crunch gel of your liking and mix in a dime sized amount of OLAPLEX No.6 Bond Smoother with some drops of OLAPLEX No.7 Bonding Oil. Work it through the hair then scrunch upwards, adding more No.7 oil as necessary. OLAPLEX is perfect for loose natural styles as its giving the hair shine, taming frizz, and also rebuilding the hair simultaneously. This means your hair is getting better and better throughout the night!

Señorita Space Buns

Another great style for any hair type on Spanish singer, Rosalia. This elegant twist on 90s space buns is perfect for those on-the-go nights where you need to glam under minimal time. Begin with towel dried damp hair, working OLAPLEX No.6 Bond Smoother and OLAPLEX No.7 Bonding Oil together in the palms of your hands. Evenly distribute the product throughout the hair from roots to ends, adding more oil as needed. Section the hair into two parts, using a pointed comb end for a clean line throughout the part. Twist and pin one side of the bun, leaving a small front section out and repeat on the other side.

Hair Baubles

Jingle Bell ponys on Instagrammer @junglepussy gives us life! Play the style up with different kinds of elastics from glittered ones to multi-colored, and all the adornments in between. This style is perfect for those looking for a unique style that doesn’t require loads of prep, simply apply OLAPLEX No.6 and No.7 to the hair, section, and start tying!

Slicked Back

Nothing but euphoric feels for this slicked back baby hair bun on Euphoria star, Alexa Demie. Make a statement with this power style! Start by preparing your styling arsenal with hair spray, OLAPLEX No.6 Bond Smoother, OLAPLEX No.7 Bonding Oil, a new toothbrush, and hair brush. Prep towel dried damp hair with OLAPLEX No.6 and No.7 for a frizz free shiny base. Use the tooth brush to brush out your ear side baby hairs. Then, spray the hairbrush with hairspray, and comb back tightly into a low pony. Twist and pin the pony into a donut shaped bun. Lastly, spray the toothbrush with hairspray, then begin to groom and twist the baby hairs in place. Give the final look an extra spritz of hairspray to finish.
