12 Holiday Hairstyles Sure To Shock Santa

We are all in favor of joining in the Christmas spirit, celebrating with family and friends and enjoying the joys of gifting. We are even in favor of decorating for the holidays, bringing lights and cheer into a dark time of year. However, there really needs to be a limit to the festivity, don't you think? 

At some point, being festive crosses the line to being ridiculous. Many folks love dressing up for the holidays, but some folks go overboard to the extreme. Doing something festive with your hair is one example of when you can go too far. Here are my picks for 12 Holiday Hairstyles Sure To Shock Santa:

1.  Holiday Horns Hair


What sort of holiday spirit does this convey? Perhaps it is the front runners of a sleigh, or the toes of elf boots?

2.  Winter Branches Hair


This looks like Pippi Longstocking went on a rampage at Tuesday Morning. I am enjoying the fact that the model looks like she is having a blast, a key element to the Christmas season. This would be super easy to create with some thin craft wire and ornaments you have around the house.

3.  Christmas Tree On My Hair


This really reminds me of Marie Antoinette, if she had a Christmas Tree hair wig. I don't think they did that back in The Day, but if they did this would be it. Just a can of green hair paint , a few small ornaments and a lot of hairspray is all you need to recreate this fun hair style.

4.  Ornaments Hair


This one also has that Marie Antoinette vibe, plus ornaments. That’s what they did back then, right? If you want to try to make your hair look like this, I think yould just start with a cheap foam tree form and then pin your hair to the form using these handy spiral hair pins which should help lock your hair in place. 

5.  Christmas Spike Mohawk


Even the punk set can get into the holiday spirit! To make your mohawk, all you need is some great mohawk hair gel.

6.  Rudolph The Red Nose Hairbun

Is this crazy or cute? I think this is kind of cute for an office party or other formal-ish occasion and absolutely perfect for an ugly christmas sweater party.  It looks pretty easy to DIY with some pipe cleaners and a red pom pom and some large google eyes. It'd be awesome to travel around wearing this in your matching reindeer car!

7.  Gardens And Garlands Hair


I’m pretty sure a nest of birds lives in there someone, but it is very festive and flowery. Is it Christmasy or just an excuse to make a mess of her hair? I think to recreate this hairstyle, you just go to your crafts stockpile and just shove some stuff into your hair, right?

8. Oh Me So Pointy Hair


For some reason, this makes me think of Cindy Lou Who. Is that just me? To recreate this hairstyle, you start with a foam treeshape  together with a cheap ponytail hairpiece that matches your hair and then see what you can do with that and some hair spray.

9.  Mini Lights Hair


Is this safe? Does she have to stay plugged in to the wall? How does this work? I really think this has an element of awesomeness to it, but the questions nag at me! To create this hairstyle, you just need to play around with some battery powered christmas lights.

10.  Christmas Lights Ponytail

If you want to blind someone with your sparkliness, you can just wow them with your ponytail.   It looks complicated but this hairstyle is super easy. Just add some fiber optic hair lights


11.  Candy Cane Mohawk


We are glad Hellboy here is into the holiday spirit, otherwise we'd have to be scared. This hairstyle is probably best reserved for those who are already bald and not afraid of a bit of red face makeup.

12. Christmas Candy Hair

Since I've been featuring a lot of  funny, extreme and outrageous hair ideas for Christmas, i thought I would end this article with one of my favorite hairstyles for Christmas and adding a festive touch. Simply grab a hairband  and some glue along with some Christmas candy like these mints and make yourself a really pretty christmas candy hairband. Or get a poinsetta and pin it to your hair. Super simple and super gorgeous.

Of course, if you want to be silly,  you make or buy yourself a funny candy cane headband like this one.
