If you're like most of us, you've probably been wearing the same hairstyles for the holidays, year after year. But that ends today.
It's time to get out of your holiday hair rut, and pick up some major inspiration from your favorite stars.
Whether you're on the prowl for a gorgeous updo or looking for new ways to sculpt your curls for your Zoom office gathering, there are several Hollywood looks that will inspire your look for the season. Plus, with the enviable versatility of natural hair, there's no excuse for wearing the same boring style every year. Get ready to update your look by taking a peek at some of our favorite red carpet styles below.
This is All Natural. From the kinkiest coils to loose waves, we're celebrating natural hair in its many forms by sharing expert tips for styling, maintenance, and haircare.
Kravitz keeps her curly strands protected with long plaits that look great no matter if she's posing on the red carpet or performing on stage. The best part is that you can also style your braids into virtually any type you want before you turn your Zoom video on.
The Mad Men actress made jaws hit the floor with this stunning style. Felicia Leatherwood is the genius behind the futuristic style, which is part mohawk and side swept updo.
Perfectly wanded curls always look great on the Empire actress. Get the star's bouncy look with ghd's Curve Creative Curl Wand.
Davis rocked her gorgeous 'fro for the 2015 Emmys. The key to her look is the chic cut, which is low on the sides and longer at the top.
Tracee Ellis Ross
Bangs are the perfect way to add effortless glamour to your strands. Follow Ross's lead and make sure the extra fringe hits just at the brows when curled.
Black-ish star Shahidi demonstrated how the effortless top knot can be a hit on the red carpet. Plus, the failproof updo is perfect for protecting fragile ends.
The Victoria's Secret model wears her history-making 'fro low with beautiful shine. Make your textured mane glow with Moroccanoil's Pure Argan Oil.
Score a faux mohawk like Nyong'o with a bristle brush and a few bobby pins.
A half-up half-down top knot is the perfect hairstyle for any occasion. To recreate this Disney star's look make sure you use a hair tie that won't damage strands, like Scunci's No Damage Elastics Hair Ties.
Monáe took a break from her usual pompadour and decided to let her tresses loose for an event she was honored at in New York City.
Gray hair is a major trend, but The Hunger Games actress took the edgy look to the next level by adding braids with loose ends.
Add texture to a blowout by sculpting loose glamorous waves like the Friday Night Lights actress.
The former Orange is the New Black actress always keeps her pretty curls closely cropped. The low-maintenance cut will instantly slash your beauty routine in half. All you'll need is a nourishing styler like Briogeo's Curl Charisma Chia + Flax Seed Coil Custard, and you're out of the door.
A little color never hurt nobody, and it can certainly spice up your holiday look. But if you're in a pinch and can't make it to your stylist, worry not. Just turn to Overtone, like Zendaya, who used the brand's Copper Conditioner Kit to get fiery red hair at the 2019 Emmys.
Turn your baby hairs into a work of art by adding rhinestones into the mix, just like Alicia Keys. Grab a jar of Creme of Nature's Perfect Edges Extra Firm Hold to make sure your strands stay in place, then use eyelash glue to secure your favorite rhinestones throughout.
