It’s that time of the year! We are well into the holiday season and the party invites are streaming in.
Be it whether you are heading out for a celebration at your friend’s place or an office party, there’s no doubt you want to look your finest for the jolliest time of the year.
To help you look your sparkling best, we put together a list of hairstyle ideas from braids to highlights and perms to get you party-ready for the year-end festivities.
If you ever wanted to wear a fancy braid to work but never had the time or skill, a Christmas or New Year’s Eve office party is the perfect time to wear one! Fancy braids can be quite hard to master on one’s own but you can always head down to salons, and get their amazing stylists to give you a braid that will last as you party the night away.
There's nothing like a Christmas Tree, a star or a heart on your braid to bring out the Festive spirit!
The braid can be pretty challenging to do on your own so you may want to check out salons who may be able to help you!
The closest we've seen so far is the beautiful heart-shaped braid done by Eri from Branche Hair Salon.
To make sure you get the style you are looking for, we would recommend you to schedule a pre-consultation to let her know of your ideal style beforehand!
Don't forget those ribbons as they can really add a lot to the overall look!
If you are looking for something sophisticated and sweet, a rose braid can be an awesome idea!
Whether fully updo or a half-up rose braid, pretty sure no matter how hard we try, we could never style a braid this sweet.
The rose braid adds a lovely touch and not to mention picture-perfect!
The sweet waterfall braids will never fail to make an impression in any occasion!
Although you may want to have a double layered waterfall braid just to make it even more special!
A braided updo is classy and perfect for those formal Christmas parties. Though most updos tend to make you look more mature, it doesn’t mean you should shy away from them. Let your stylist know what kind of look you are going for and they will create an updo that is best suited for you.
You can go for a topknot or a fully braided updo like the one below.
A half up-do can look professional without looking too staid!
Even if your hair is curly or wavy, a half-up braid can make your hair look sexy and sophisticated all at once!
Especially if complex braids are incorporated!
An asymmetrical side braids + styling combination adds much personality to the overall look!
Of course, you can always choose to leave it all down and get a beautiful blowout at your favourite salon for a glam-up prior to the party!
Whichever style you choose, flowers can be an elegant and festive addition!
Incorporate it into your upstyles to look like a fairy / princess instantly!
If you are lucky, you may even get to borrow some special flower accessories from Japanese stylists for a uniquely Japanese look!
If you are looking for something quick and simple, a simple bun with some creative accessories can possibly get you Christmas-ready in a jiffy!
Other than eye-catching reindeer antlers, ribbons and headgears can get you right into the theme of your Christmas or New Year party!
Although styling can make a huge difference, hair colours (particularly vibrant ones) is possibly the simplest way to glam up your look fast! As expounded in our article on Why you should get vibrant hair colours now, there’s after all no better time to change your look since 2015 is coming to an end!
New Year, New Look, New You!

If work (and budget) is not an obstacle, the galaxy hair colour is probably PERFECT for the festive season.
