With the holiday season in full swing, thoughts of how to style your hair festively are top of mind. But when there are so many gorgeous curly hairstyles to choose from, how’s a girl to know where to start? From bouncy vintage curls to voluminous blowouts, we’ve got you covered with the hair styling products and tips you need to create pretty curly hairstyles that are perfect to wear around the holidays. Follow our instructions below to eliminate a whole lot of hairstyling guesswork as the holiday parties begin to fill your calendar.
If big curly hair is what you’re working with, why not totally embrace it? Blowouts are one of the most perfect curly hairstyles to rock this holiday season because they allow for a full-blown rendition of your luscious locks. Sounds pretty amazing, right?
What you’ll need:
L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse
L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Undone Style Cream
Get the look by following these simple steps:
Step 1: Add hair mousse. The magic of the perfectly blown-out curly hairstyle starts where volumizing hair mousse and damp hair collide. Be sure to concentrate on massaging the hair mousse into the crown of your head and working your way down the mid-shaft of your hair to create maximum lift.
Step 2: Blow-dry. When you begin drying, leave your brush on your vanity. Oftentimes it’s thought that brush action is necessary from start to finish, however a hairstyle isn’t actually going to benefit from being wrapped around a barrel brush until it’s almost completely dry. And, brushing your hair when it’s still fairly wet can actually lead to breakage—no thanks!
Step 3: Part your crown. When blow-drying, make a horizontal part from ear to ear to section off the top portion of hair. Take that front section of hair and begin drying it while simultaneously wrapping it around a boar bristle barrel brush for instant lift and added shine.
Step 4: Dry the remaining hair. In sections, wrap the remaining hair around a medium-sized round brush to help bring out the natural buoyancy of your curls.
Step 5: Shake it out! As a final touch, shake your curly hairstyle out and use a hair cream on your ends and any flyaways to add moisture and shine, while reducing frizz without weighing your beautiful blowout down.
If there’s one look that’s pretty much synonymous with style and grace, it’s side-swept curls. There’s just something about the way the waves cascade down one shoulder that makes for a completely red carpet-ready look. So, if embracing your inner Hollywood glam this holiday season is on your to-do list, keep reading to see just how easy it is with this curly hairstyle tutorial!

L’Oréal Paris EverCurl HydraCharge Conditioner
L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray
Step 1: Prep hair. As with many styles, when it comes to the perfect side-swept look, it’s important to start with freshly-washed hair. To make the most of this curly hairstyle, use a shampoo and conditioner combo for curly hair.
Step 2: Smooth curls. Once your curly hair has air dried about 80 percent of the way, grab your blow-dryer and a round boar bristle brush and get to work. A boar bristle brush is about to become your curly hair BFF, because the bristles can help smooth strands and add shine.
Step 3: Grab a curling iron. Separate your hair into two-inch sections and begin curling. Be sure to curl each section in the same direction so that the final look will be very uniform and flowing.
Step 4: Brush and part. Once you’ve finished curling your hair, lightly brush your waves with the boar bristle brush for one last smoothing element before parting to the side. Next, pull all your curls around to the side and secure the hairstyle with a few hidden bobby pins in the same color as your hair.
Step 5: Seal the deal. To set your Hollywood-esque look, use a strong hold hair spray that can help your style last all night long.
Let’s be real: Who doesn’t love a good messy bun? And when you have curly hair, you just so happen to be one of the lucky ones who can create perfectly undone, enviable hairstyles in a fraction of the time it takes others. So, if you’re looking for a lazy girl curly hairstyle without sacrificing serious style, we’ve got the tips for you!
L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray
Step 1: Flip your hair. To start, flip your curly hair and use your fingers to brush out any massive tangles while gathering hair into a ponytail.
Step 2: Twist a rope. Take your ponytail and twist it from the crown of your head to the ends.
Step 3: Wrap a bun. Next, swirl your twisted ponytail around itself to create the perfectly undone holiday hairstyle.
Step 4: Dishevel it. Messy buns are all about, well, being messy. So gently tug at small sections of your bun to give it a little oomph and whimsical flair.
Step 5: That’s a wrap! Once you’ve created your final undone wrapped bun, seal it in with a brushable hold hair spray to create a lasting hairstyle.
