easy hairstyles for the holidays

ghd’s have been my hair iron of choice for as long as I can remember. I still remember the day I bought my first one almost 6 years ago (which is still going strong by the way) and I have not used any other brand since. If you follow me on social or read the blog regularly, you’ll know I’m quite the avid lover of anything copper or rose gold, so when I made the discovery of the new limited edition Copper Luxe collection from ghd for Christmas… well, you can just imagine my excitement.

There’s something about these ghd in particular that just feel so luxurious. The detailing, the lights and the sparkle (even the inside irons have a copper shimmer) is all spot on and I know it’s going to last me for years.

When it comes to the holiday period, I am all about anything easy and effortless. I don’t want to spend hours upon hours doing my hair but I still want to do something a little bit special, since I do feel as though the holidays are a time for glitz and glamour. Naturally, I thought I’d share with you guys some of my favourite go-to holiday looks with the gorgeous copper ghd.

1.
Braided Half Up-Do

hair1-step1

Start to section off your hair depending on thickness (I usually do 3 sections on either side). Take a small section of your hair and  clamp the ghd from where you would like your curl to start, then turn it back on itself. Make sure you’re curling outwards and to keep the iron at that same angle and slowly and steadily move the ghd down the hair. Repeat this for all sections of your hair.

Once you’re done, it should look something like step 4. All the curls should be curling outwards. Then take two small pieces of your hair on either side of your head and start to braid down.

Once you’ve done both sides, we’re going to leave them for a second and move onto next grabbing the top half of your hair (see step 8) and with a brush, brushing down underneath to tease the hair and create some volume. Once you’re happy with the volume, use a few bobby pins to secure it in place.

Take the two braids you made earlier and clip them using bobby pins underneath the teased section, and that’s the finished look!

2.
High Ponytail with a Bow

Start off by creating curls once again with your ghd like we created at the beginning of hairstyle. The only difference is now we’re going to comb through them to give them a more wavy and thick look. Then brush your hair into a high ponytail.

Take out any parts of your fringe or hair you’d like to keep down. Use a red ribbon to create a bow in the ponytail. Easy as that!

3.
Inward Curls

Starting off by curling your hair with the ghd using the same technique as hairstyle one, except this time we’re curling inwards. Part your hair into sections and keep going until you’ve curled all your hair. Again, make sure you’re curling inwards and to keep the iron at that same angle and slowly and steadily move the ghd down the hair.

You could easily finish your hair here by adding in some hairspray, but another option is once your done curling all your hair, part it into two sections, creating a ponytail in the top like shown in steps 3-4.

Take a red ribbon once again and create a bow around that top half of your hair we tied up.

  • The ponytail look fits you very well. I have shorter hair so I usually do waves, it’s easier for me. Your ideas look great for this holiday season.

    • Thank you so much Lauren!! Isn’t it beautiful?! I’m obsessed! xx

  • I love rose gold so much! All of the hairstyles look so pretty, I’m definitely gonna be wearing one of them on Christmas eve and then another one on Christmas day. I’ll probably wear the last two since they look like they’re the easiest ones and when it comes to my hair I’m not very patient haha
