Festive Hairstyles for Christmas Holiday

Festive Hairstyles for the Christmas Holiday

Festive Hairstyles for the Christmas Holiday 546 450 Number 4 High Performance Hair Care


As the song goes…it’s the most wonderful time of the year; sparkles, prosecco, good food and festive get togethers with family and friends… which calls my dah-ling, for fabulous holiday hair.

Amongst all the preparations including food shopping, cooking, buying and wrapping those last minute presents (there’s still a chance to shop Number 4 stocking stuffers for bauble inspired hair gifts and MORE) it can be hard to take a little ‘me’ time and plan how you’re going to look for the Christmas celebrations .

It’s the one time we get all dressed up just to stay indoors! But there’s something so magical about it!

N4 has saved you the time of figuring out what to do with your hair!

Below we have compiled some very easy and gorgeous styles so you can really look the part. And don’t worry, we’ve thrown in some styles that are heat proof from when you open the oven to check on the turkey! That’s another big advantage of not using chemicals like parabens in our sulfate free range.

Festive Hairstyles for Christmas Holiday

Bouncy Blow-Dry

Nothing quite feels as nice and glam as a beautiful blow-dry! And you don’t even need to head to the salon to get this look! It also differs from just your usual look after it’s washed and dried as it requires extra effort to add volume.

A bouncy blow dry with flicky ends is so sophisticated yet so simple. It works very naturally with straight hair and can also create a slight wave you’ve never had before.

After washing your hair with the N4 Volumizing Shampoo and Condition, distribute N4s Blow Dry Lotion evenly through your strands. This is going to give your hair the perfect balance between hold and condition so you can help achieve your look smoothly. You’re going to want to cocktail this with N4s Support Solution for a smooth, under control finish with touchable volume. N4 certainly knows how to put the high performance into hair care products.

These are the two botanical based yet mighty products that will work for the volume!

Next, it’s time to blow dry.

For the perfect blow-out type look it’s best to use a round brush so you can section and dry your hair by wrapping your hair around it. For flicked out ends make sure to angle the brush the right way!

Front Braids

If you’re looking for a style that takes minimal effort but looks dazzling and different, then this one’s for you dah-ling. You’ll be dashing through the snow in style.

Whether you have short, long, wavy, curly or straight hair, it works for you! Simply take the front bits of your locks and make a little braid on either side of your head. Just make sure to use N4s Smoothing Balm to ensure your locks, no matter their texture or type, are nice and smooth so all the attention is on the beautiful front parts of your hair! Simply distribute this evenly throughout your strands and blow dry and style as desired!

Slicked Back

Nothing beats a nice slicked back look! Not only is it super simple but dazzling, it allows your natural face structure to shine as well as your gorgeous makeup look to stand out. It’s also easy to achieve when you’re running short on time thanks to the help of N4’s professional hair care products.

N4s Firm Hold Gel is going to be your guardian angel this Christmas for this look! All you need to do is brush your hair back and apply the gel on the slides so everything stays in place. Make sure to grab a hair tie or two and secure the pony in place tightly.

If you feel like you need an extra layer or hold, you can always spritz a little of N4s Mighty Hair Spray over the top!


Dah-ling, nothing screams Christmas more than glitter, jewels, sparkles and pearls! And nothing beats a good accessory.

If you want to look the part for the season then why not add a festive accessory to your hair look. It can turn a plain outfit into a dazzling one! Whether it be a jeweled clip, an elegant pearl headband, or a sparkly scarf, you will look the part!

All N4 recommends is adding a pump or two of N4s Fluoro5 Elixer Restore and Repair Oil. It’s going to give your locks a gorgeous and glossy finish!

Soft hair

We have hard water Which does a number on my hair mixed with hair coloring ..this shampoo and conditioner smells great and makes my hair feel great!!

I’m a return customer and for good reason

I found No 4 through Birchbox yearsssssssss ago haha. And I searched high and low from several retailers before realizing I can purchase through that website, duh! NOTHING leaves my hair both perfectly clean and deeply thick & shiny like No4. And you can’t beat that scent. So soft and sweet. Love it!

  1. Michelle

    This is my holy grail shampoo! The scent is heavenly, and it leaves my hair hydrated but not limp or oily. I believe this product helps keep my highlighted and heat-styled hair looking its absolute best.

  2. baxterdiane689

    I purchased this shampoo thru my salon where I have my hair colored. Initially, upon the first use, my hair felt tangled and stiff. Once I applied the conditioner, it helped, but no shampoo should make your hair feel tangled and rough. The conditioner is great, but the shampoo was not good for my fine color treated hair at all. What a disappointment.

  3. josephine.schagerstrom

    This shampoo is perfect for my colored curly and frizzy hair. Leaves no residue and makes my hair fresh and clean and brings out the true beauty of my hair. I will never stop buying it.

  4. davnbird (verified owner)

    I have been a loyal fan of Number 4 Hydrating Shampoo for years; however, the last bottle I received was totally different from the previous bottle. The product was brown, did not lather at all, and left my hair lank after washing. I will not be buying any more of this brand.

  5. Dora J Crow

    The texture, scent & cleansing w/out stripping my purple color off is sensational. I thought I’d never find a pro product (I am licensed managing cosmetologist) that would meet or exceed all my requirements. It’s luxurious feel & color of the shampoo to begin with is a zen-like experience. Once you get that nectar on your hair & start to shampoo? Heavenly scent of patchouli fills your shower. It leaves hair hydrated & moist. It actually does what it professes to do, unlike so many other products. I adore Number 4! Psst- your man will always want to smell you, wondering what that new scent is that you are wearing!

  6. Lauren

    I got a sample of this in my Birchbox and it is absolutely the most amazing shampoo I’ve ever used! My hair is normally dry and damaged from the blow dryer and curling iron and this shampoo completely transformed it! It’s so soft and I hardly get split ends now. Definitely going to keep buying it 🙂

  7. fawxed

    This shampoo is an absolute DREAM! Super concentrated, a little bit really does go a long way, but it really gets the job done. My tresses are silky and my frizz is greatly minimized. It also smells delightful. Do yourself a favor!

  8. sillyj435

    Love love love this. My hair was so soft and feels so healthy!!! Oh and it smells sooo yummy. I have curly hair and fight with hydration issues. With this I no longer fight. Thanks.

  9. cjtang4u

    I love this line! All of the lines smell great but the Hydrate one is my favorite. This one smells like honeysuckle and I get whiffs of it throughout the day when I use it. A little goes a long way!

  10. molson

    This shampoo has saved my life. Well, technically it saved my hair, but since my hair is a huge part of my life… you get the gist. I have naturally curly hair that easily falls flat and goes frizzy. I have received so many compliments since my hairdresser introduced me to No. 4. and all I have to do is wash and go–no fuss and my hair looks amazing and feels amazingly soft.
    Mega hydrated! I love this stuff and you will, too!!

  11. a1nettie

    I love the way this makes my hair feel. The scent is unique and initially strong and off putting, but when I felt how my hair felt I was sold!Super silky and I don’t feel like I “Need” a conditioner when using this. Excellent!

  12. julesc

    Perfect! I got a sample of both the hydrating shampoo and conditioner in my June Birchbox. Being a cosmetology student who’s currently trying like crazy to grow my hair out, I’m pretty picky about what I’ll put on my head. I decided to give this shampoo a shot and I’m hooked! Seriously, my usually frizzy hair has never felt so clean and soft, it’s even tamed my wiry, damaged ends from bleaching!

  13. emboog

    OMG. You must try this product! No disappointment will be had! Well worth the cost. Promise. Must follow-up with conditioner.
