Christmas is nearly here dah-lings and it’s time to pull out all the stops!
Whether you’re cooking in the kitchen all day, playing board games with the family, watching ELF for the tenth time (we do this every year!!), or heading out to a venue this year now that things are back on track; we’ve got the perfect Christmas Day festive hairstyles for you.
We get it, the holidays can be stressful, but we’re here to make one thing easier for you.
There are ways to get the most gorgeous locks without putting in too much effort (shh, our Christmas secret, don’t tell anyone).
Let us take one thing off your very full Xmas plate as we dish up – don’t worry we’ll lend you our top 5 festive hairstyles that will have you looking and feeling “fancy”.
The Angelic Halo Braid
Give off MAJOR angelic vibes this Christmas with a halo braid. This delicate style is enough on its own without any bedazzling jewels.
If you’re looking to try out this elegant look but don’t know where to start, don’t worry! It’s not as hard as it looks. First things first, make sure to de-frizz your hair! You’ll want this style to be as smooth as your locks.
It’s best to begin using N4s Smoothing Balm, it’s the perfect product for smoothing your hair and allowing it to be easily reshaped into whatever style you wish. Simply distribute evenly through damp hair and blow dry as desired.
Begin by parting your hair into two, and from one side start a dutch braid. This will need to be started at the back of your head, by the nape of your neck. Make sure to continue this braid over your head.
When you eventually reach the nape of your neck, where you began, it’s time to bring the halo together. Wrap the end of the braid around your head and discreetly put pins in to keep it in place. Finish off with N4s Mighty Hair Spray for extra hold. You’ll be prettier than the angel on top of the tree!
Side-Swept Curls With ALL The Volume
Do you find that no matter how much product or heat you use, your hair just drops? Dah-ling, do yourself and your locks a favour and don’t waste time damaging your hair!
Instead, move your hair over to a side parting and use N4s Sugar Texturizing Spray. You’ll be able to ditch the heat as this perfect product denounces salt, and gives your hair some sweet love by creating natural curly waves.
Simply lightly spray onto damp hair and blow dry using a diffuser. This will give you all that volume you’re after. Remember to sweep your hair over to one side. Tres magnificent!
High Pony With Beaded Band
One of our favourite festive hairstyles, you can bring out the high pony for any occasion! The sleekness takes effect and can make your look go from casual to tres sophisticated. But to make it special for the festive season, we suggest adding in a bejeweled band.
To begin styling your hair, we recommend using N4’s Blow Dry Lotion to help with the shaping and protecting your hair against heat. It’s the perfect product to help control your strands when you style it, without leaving any heaviness or stickiness behind.
Simply distribute evenly between your damp locks and blow dry with your hair flipped down. We recommend using the heat and a brush in the same direction as your roots.
Gather your hair and make sure to keep it smooth so there’s no lumps or bumps. It’s a fabulous idea to use N4s Firm Hold Gel to keep it in place. Secure with a hair tie, and then wrap around your bejeweled band for that extra sparkle! Make sure to finish off with N4s Mighty Hair Spray for extra hold.

Classic Half-Up Half-Down Turned Chic With Feathers
Dah-ling, haven’t you heard? Feathers are all the rage right now. Take your half up half down style to another level. Gather the top of your hair and section it off from the bottom half. Use N4s Firm Hold Gel to keep all of the flyaways and baby hairs together.
Secure with a hair tie and slide in a beautiful feather clip on the side of your head. It will give you a gorgeous flare and add a touch of sophistication.
Christmas Party Waves
Add a little bounce to your hair with some glossy waves! These just scream PARTY and they also add a touch of elegance to your look.
Our favourite way to achieve this look is by starting with creating Heatless Curls. These are easy to brush out, leaving you with the most desirable waves.
Make sure to use N4s Fluoro5 Elixer Restore and Repair hair oil for that extra gloss, and to keep your flyaways at bay.
