9 Stunning Holiday Hairstyles with Hand-Tied Hair Extensions


If you are wearing hand-tied extensions, you might mistakenly think that your options are limited when it comes to beautiful holiday hairstyles.

We are here to tell you that you couldn’t be more wrong!

One of the great things about hand-tied hair extensions is that they are virtually undetectable. They are placed a few inches away from your hairline and are very thin, laying flat against your head so they can seamlessly blend with your natural hair, no matter what thickness or texture it is. 

Unlike most other types of hair extensions, you can wear hand-tied extensions up or down without having to worry about the beads getting exposed, which means that you are free to experiment with all kinds of different and exciting hairdos!

If you are looking for hair inspiration for the upcoming holiday season, we’ve got you covered. Below are some of our favorite festive hairstyles that you can achieve with hand-tied extensions.

1. High ponytail flirty and youthful hairstyle, the high ponytail is a timeless classic that works for any occasion. You can wear it as is, or give it some oomph with sparkly barrettes, velvet bows or jeweled headbands. A beautifully done ponytail will make you feel confident and seductive, whether you are wearing it with a little black mini dress or your favorite Christmas sweater. Lightly curl the ends with a curling wand for a more finished look, and don’t forget to smooth down flyaway hairs with a drop of gel or a bit of hairspray. Perfection!

2. Low Ponytail with Fancy Details.  A low pony might be your go-to style to wear to the office or for running errands, but believe us when we say that it can be a beautiful complement to even the most elegant holiday outfits. All you need to do is add some exciting details to make it look festive and hide your hair tie: knots or braids will effortlessly achieve both.

3. Stylish Half Updo 

A favorite with models and movie stars, this hairstyle is both ultra-feminine and practical. It will show off the beautiful length of your locks and keep your hair out of your face and make sure you look stunning in every photo. And, as always, ribbons and jeweled clips are your best friends! The holidays are a great excuse to use as many hair accessories as your heart desires; don’t be afraid to go all out!

4. Soft Waves. 

You can’t go wrong with soft, natural waves – they look fantastic on everyone, no matter the occasion or time of day. Your hand-tied hair extensions will give you all the extra volume and length you’ll need to make the most of this hairstyle. You can achieve this look with either a curling iron or a hair straightener; experiment with both to find out which one works best for you, and use a good dry shampoo to make the style last an extra day!

5. Sleek Chignon. 

If you are looking for the perfect hairstyle for formal occasions, look no further. An elegant chignon with no hair out of place is the ultimate sleek hairdo that will make you the queen of any black or white tie event. Go for a classic and sophisticated look with a middle part, or add a playful touch to your ‘do with an asymmetric side chignon; you will look stunning either way. This hairstyle looks best with dramatic floor-length evening gowns and sky-high heels.

6. Messy Bun

Who doesn’t love messy buns? They are easy to do and look effortlessly feminine, especially with the right pair of chandelier earrings. Messy buns are perfect for cozy family celebrations, busy gift shopping days, and relaxed evenings during the holiday season. Oversized chunky knit sweaters and distressed jeans call for a messy bun.

The best messy buns are voluminous and fluffy and look like they took precisely five seconds to throw together. Plus points for romantic tendrils that frame your face and delicate highlights that are barely there.

7. Loose Braid. 

Braids, if done well, can look like something out of a fairy tale, and what better time than the holidays to emanate those charming medieval-princess-meets-bohemian-soul vibes. Loose braids are a beautiful way to make your hair look even fuller and more voluminous. You can use anything from pearls to flowers to actual jewelry to adorn your braid - your imagination is the limit!

9. Braided Updo

This is perhaps the most elaborate and festive hairstyle on our list, but it is most definitely worth the time and effort that goes into making it. Yes, it will probably require help from your trusted hairstylist or a whole lot of YouTube tutorial watching, but it is also guaranteed to leave everyone speechless. From family events to the most glamorous parties of the year, this makes you look and feel like the queen you are.

No matter what kind of hairstyles you choose for this year’s holiday events, remember that they will look even prettier if you have hand-tied hair extensions installed beforehand for added length and volume. 

Always choose high-quality extensions, even if they are more expensive, and have them installed by an experienced, certified hairstylist for a beautiful and long-lasting result.
