Good hair speaks for itself, but this goes double during the holiday season.

Sure, you can certainly sport your everyday blowout or go-to topknot at the office Christmas party or to your BFF's gift exchange. But think about it: If you're swapping out your usual jeans and T-shirt uniform for a festive cocktail dress, shouldn't your hair be next level, too?

You don't have to go full glam every time a calendar invite pops up on your phone, but you should do something to make it feel special.

From brushed-gold barrettes to pro status curling irons, these are all the tools you need to achieve celeb-inspired holiday hair.


Add interest to your look by throwing some intricate barrettes into the mix. Rest assured, any one of these baubles will be the Instagram-worthy finishing touch your holiday look was missing.
