Hanukkah hair doesn’t have to be stiff or prim and proper; this year, get playful during the festival of lights. If you’re celebrating all eight crazy nights, switch your tresses up and use this once-a-year opportunity to show off your holiday style and personality. The fam will love your mane efforts and how you put a whole new spin on #HolidayHanukkahHair. Here’s our guide to winning every night of this special week with the best in holiday hair.
8 Hairstyles for Hanukkah
An easy double braid adds easy flair; we recommend creating waves with the Beachwaver, $199for boho vibes.
Curly Does It
We love a good curl. Ringlets add volume and keep you looking unique.
Braid Up, Half Down
A wide braid that fades into a half-up, half-down is an unexpected way to update two mom-approved classics.
Work a Fishtail
Is there any style more gratifying than the fishtail? This head turning braid still looks touchable, and perfectly piece-y—notice the pulled through ends and the face-framing front strands.
Do it Up
The holidays can be stressful, but that’s just not a possibility when sporting this effortless up-style by our #manemuse Britt Sully.
Bigger is Better
If you’ve got it flaunt it; if you don’t, fake it. Maximize what your mama gave ya by dosing locks in thickening spray and crimping for texture. Pull it all together in a mega way at the top of the skull. We love Bumble and bumble Thickening Dryspun, $31 and the ghd Contour Crimper, $169
Switch it up and wear your hair super straight. Sleek strands are the best during winter’s low frizz conditions. We love the CHI Lava 1” Volcanic Lava Ceramic Hairstyling Iron, $150 for salon-worthy styles.
The ponytail is our go-to. Finish the week with a perky pony a la Sam Villa, for an instantaneous lift.
