The holidays are the perfect time to play around with your look. Between fancy soirees, ugly sweater parties, long dinners with old friends and gift exchanges, there’s no lack of opportunity to refresh your style. And the quickest way to give yourself an instant holiday makeover is by showcasing an amazing new ‘do that will put you in festive spirits and, maybe more importantly, look really amazing on Instagram.

Celebrate the holiday season and usher in the New Year in the chicest way with some of these sleek and celebratory styles!
