From the office Christmas party to your New Years Eve bash, we’ve got you covered with a range of easy looks that will last through to your last drop of champagne.

Down ‘Dos

Half-Up Half-Down with Festive Bow

Our first look is so easy to achieve and perfect if you’re looking for a go-to cute Christmas hairstyle or an easy New Year’s Eve hairstyle that looks glamorous with little effort involved! A classic half-up half-down is the perfect compromise between styles and is super simple to do. Adding some gentle waves and accessorising with a Christmassy bow adds the finishing touches to this look and makes it one of our favourite festive hairstyles. Get the look with our full video tutorial.

Half-Up Half-Down with a Twist

Alternatively, you can try this gorgeous half-up twisted knot style for another elegant take on the otherwise simple look. While it may look fiddly, it’s easy to do! The sweeping fringe and soft curls add volume and create a sophisticated look perfect for Christmas celebrations, festive dinners with the family or pairing with your New Year’s Eve dress for a party-ready look.

Hollywood Glamour

Long, flowing locks more your vibe? Emulate classic Hollywood glamour with this simple style. This is one of our favourite options if you’re looking for New Year’s Eve hairstyles or Christmas party hairstyles that achieve maximum impact with minimum effort. The classic side-parting and voluminous waves let you channel your inner Hollywood starlet all night and are easily maintained with a quick spritz of hairspray and occasional zhuzh. Find out how to get the look with our full video tutorial (plus one of our favourite make-up looks!)

Big Glam Volume

Another of our fave festive hairstyles is this similarly volumised look, which we’ve achieved using hot rollers. It’s especially perfect for adding some oomph to fine hair in need of extra body and bounce. By simply backcombing and adding soft waves to your extensions, this look provides glamourous volume in a matter of minutes that will last all night! Get the look with our simple video tutorial and try accessorising with an embellished or velvet headband for an extra festive feel.

Up ‘Dos

Glam Ponytail

Want to opt for an up ‘do this year? One of our go-to Christmas party hairstyles or New Year’s hairstyles is this versatile, glam ponytail. While this style looks sophisticated and feminine, it’s also ideal for keeping your hair up and out of your face while you’re on the dancefloor! Simply add your Foxy Locks extensions, add some simple waves and you have the perfect, party-ready ponytail that will stay in place all evening. You can find out how to get the look with our full video tutorial.

Fishtail Braid

For an extra-special take on a classic pony, try a fishtail braid at your Christmas or New Year’s party this year. Elegant and stylish, fishtail braids are one of the best festive hairstyles because they look impressive when really they’re simple to do! For bonus festive-points, you can try accessorising with an embellished or glittery hair tie, too. We’ve created a full video tutorial for you to follow to get the look.


Last but not least in our pick of festive hairstyles is the classic topknot. Thought the style was just for lazy days? Think again. A sleek topknot can look elegant and polished when done right and doesn’t even require hair extensions. It’s also one of the best Christmas party hairstyles or New Year’s Eve hairstyles if you want the attention to be on the detail of your dress or your make-up. Nail this simple-yet-perfect party look with our video tutorial.
