Holiday Ready: Hair and Makeup Looks for 2023

‘Tis the season for holiday hair and beauty tips! Whether your holiday festivities have you dressing to the nines or staying cozy, going out on the town in style or staying home in your comfy clothes, we’ve got the products and techniques to keep you looking and feeling your best this winter, courtesy of Emma N. and Hannah D. 

Also: Don’t forget to book your holiday hair appointments ASAP — our designers book up quickly this time of year! We look forward to seeing you.

Knotty and Nice

First, take a segment of hair from the top of your head, leaving out a small section to frame your face. Then, tie that first segment up into a stylish top knot. Gently adjust the top knot until you achieve your preferred appearance. Afterward, use the ghd 1-inch curling iron to curl the rest of your hair.


Wrapped Up in Holiday Charm

First, divide your hair in half, leaving out a small section at the front to frame your face. Then, twist the upper portion into an elongated bun and fasten it in place against your head with a TELETIES Classic Claw Hair Clip in a color that best suits your style and mood. Next, create soft curls on the lower half and framing pieces using the ghd 1-inch curling iron.

Mistletoe-Ready Lips

A bold lip is a classic choice during the holiday season, and our new Jane Iredale lipstick collection has tons of colors to experiment with! Try a fun, vibrant shade — like our latest favorite, Candy Apple Red — and experience the allure of a bold lip look.


Soft Eyes, Warm Hearts

Since we’re making our lips the star of our holiday makeup, let’s keep the eyes elegantly understated. Begin by using Triple Cognac and a soft, fluffy brush to blend Matte Warm Tan into the crease of your eye. Then, switch to a denser brush to apply Matte Deep Warm Brown to the outer corner of your eye in a “V” shape. For the lid, inner corner, and brow bone, use a flat brush to apply Light Pearl Beige. Finally, blend it seamlessly with Matte Warm Tan using the fluffy brush.

The holidays present so many opportunities to try new makeup looks and experiment with fun hair ideas. Give one of these a go, or play around with something completely unique and different! Whatever you choose, wear it with confidence, because you look great!
