‘Tis the season to jazz up your look for holiday gatherings! Which is why Great Clips and SexyHair are collaborating to add a little magic to your hair this holiday season.

We’ve put together the ultimate holiday hair guide for both men and women featuring easy, trendy hairstyles along with the products you need to get the look—so you can look and feel your best this holiday season.

Before you begin thinking about freshening up your look for holiday gatherings with friends and family, the first step should always be a fresh haircut! Your local Great Clips salon is your one-stop destination this holiday season for haircuts and the products you’ll need to achieve these dashing hairstyles.

For women

Classic loose waves

This holiday glam hairstyle is simple and timeless. The perfect hairstyle to elevate your look for any holiday gathering!

Get the look: You’ll need a round brush, curling iron and clean hair. Start by applying the Tri-Wheat Leave-In Conditioner to add moisture and shine to your hair. Round brush your hair for a smooth finish. Start at the bottom of your hair and curl 2-inch sections away from your face. Brush out curls for that retro wave. Add a touch of Love Oil to smooth ends.

Half-up with a twist

This simple hairstyle takes your look to the next level in no time at all! Add a holiday hair bow or barrette for an extra festive touch.

Get the look: Prep hair by washing with SexyHair Healthy moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, then let your hair air-dry with its natural texture. Sprinkle Powder Play along the crown of the head at the roots and work in with your fingertips to give added volume. Gather two small sections of hair at the front of your face. Twist each section and drape it along the side of your head to meet the other section of hair at the back of your head. Secure both sections of hair together at the back of the head with a bobby pin or hair elastic.

Short and sleek

Shoulder-length haircuts are one of our favorite trends this year and, not to mention, easy to style! Try this look with a middle part for a super trendy look.

Get the look: To achieve this hairstyle, start with a fresh haircut from your local Great Clips salon and get texture and dimension using Play Dirty Dry Wax Spray.

Side swept curls

There’s nothing as festive as locks of curls! Whether you have natural texture to embrace or add curls to your hair—this look is merry as can be.

Get the look: For naturally textured hair, use Curling Creme to define your curls. For straight hair, pull out your curling iron to create curls as loose or bouncy as you desire. Part your hair to the side and finish the look with Spray & Play Harder Hairspray.

Wispy low bun

This wispy and natural look is effortless and stunning! Use it to transition your look from casual daytime to holiday event.

Get the look: Start by working Tri-Wheat Leave-In Conditioner through your hair for added shine and moisture. Use Root Pump Plus Volumizing Spray mousse on damp hair at your roots and blow dry for added volume, then simply brush your hair into a low twisted bun and secure with a simple hair elastic.

For men

Classic comb over

This classic hairstyle instantly upgrades any casual look and works for both short and long haircuts.

Get the look: Start with a fresh haircut from your local Great Clips salon. Wet your hair and grab a comb to part to one side. Once hair is parted, add a small amount of Frenzy Bulked Up Hair to your hands and work through hair to add volume and hold your hair in place.

Amplify natural texture

Does your hair have natural wave or curl? Amplify your natural texture for a stylish new look fit for any holiday occasion!

Get the look: To enhance your natural texture, work SexyHair Hard Up Holding Gel onto damp hair. To complete the look, use a small amount of Frenzy Matte Texturizing Paste to define your curls with the right amount of hold, texture and smooth finish. 

Natural slick back

This simple hairstyle is trendy and a great way to jazz up your look for a holiday gathering.

Get the look: Work a small amount of Frenzy Matte Texturizing Paste into hands and distribute throughout your hair. Using a comb, work your hair towards the back of your head to give added volume and hold. Finish with Spray & Play Hairspray for long-lasting control.
