Christmas wreaths don’t need to be limited to your doors! Spice it up a bit and have fun wearing your wreath in your hair this year!

This hairstyle is pretty complex and if it’s too complicated for you, try out your own version of a Christmas wreath hair look, you can make it a lot simpler and it can still look very impressive!

2. Green for a Tree Braid

Blend into your Christmas surroundings with the beautiful Christmas tree-inspired hairstyle. I love how she’s added decorations to her hair as if it were a real tree!

One thing for sure is that this hairstyle is a winner and will get anyone in a festive mood!

3. Magical Magic Fishtail Braid

Feel the magic in the air with this fun and creative hairstyle. Let your creative juices get to work here because this is a look you can’t mess up.

However you do it, it will look fab, especially when you add some fairy lights to it!

4. Pine Tree Colored Hair

The most gorgeous part of this hairstyle is the green colour! It’s so regal and festive! The easiest and quickest way to colour hair, especially if you don’t want it to be permanent is to use hair chalk.

You may not get the deep green and shimmer but it’s quick and easy! Add some fake snow and tree decor and you will be a Christmas tree waiting to celebrate!

5. Regal does it

This luscious look works best for those with blonde hair. Buy some red hair extensions, make some beautiful braids and add some diamonds to top it all off! You will sparkle the night away!

6. Jingle Bells Half Updo

Get your hair jingling with this jingle bells-inspired hair look! Add a wreath for some extra detail and fun!

This hairstyle looks best on red hair, but I think it would still look pretty on blondes and browns!

7. Wreath with Berries Hair

This Christmas wreath is very different from our first wreath but just as wow! It kind of reminds me of a bird’s nest too, depending on the angle you look at it!

This one is definitely easier to make because the details are really in the added hairpiece. For the rest of your hair, simply spray it with the desired colour and pin it up.

You don’t need to be an expert to achieve this look but the best part is, people will think you are one!

8. Candy Cane Hair

Who doesn’t love a delicious candy cane this time of year?! Now you can turn it up a notch and enjoy the festivity of candy cane in your hair too! Only, make sure you don’t try to eat it;)

9. Sugar Plum Fairy

I may not want to act like the sugar plum fairy, (especially during Christmas time!), but I sure want to look like her! This hairstyle is stunning and suitable for any princess wannabe!

With the mauve, pink and blonde tones, topped with some fake snow, it will transform you into a magical being!

10. Pink Mascato Festive Hairstyle

The sky’s the limit when it comes to the creative ideas that you can do with your hair, and this hairstyle is proof of that!

Turn your favourite drink into a festive hairstyle. Add some Christmas decorations or sparkle and voila, you have a gorgeous hairstyle!

11. Lit Up Tree

A different take to our previous Christmas tree hairstyle but just as much fun! The truth is you can really do what you want.

All you need is green hair which you can get either with extensions, dye or spray and then simply add the decor that you want. This gorgeous one has gone for fairy lights, baubles and a bow!

12. Colored Green & Red Highlights

If busy hairstyles aren’t your thing, but you still want some of that Christmas spirit for your hair, why not colour it in Christmas colours? It’s beautiful and suitable for all ages, including mature ones:)

13. Mistletoe Hair

Add a simple, yet pretty mistletoe wreath to your hair to achieve this hairstyle look. To complete the look, add green and red streaks to your hair!

14. Baubles Crown

Make a bauble hair wreath with your favourite coloured baubles and some extra glitter and sparkle! To complete the look add some matching coloured streaks to your hair. The effect is WOW!

15. Winter Queen

Winter Queen

Simple, yet elegant! Sometimes less is more as you can see with this hairstyle! It’s a bit easier for those with dark hair to pull off, and less work!

Add some blue streaks to black hair, and tie it back with your favourite festive hair tie. Don’t forget the most important thing- the fake snow!

16. Princess Ponytail

There is never a wrong time to be a princess, especially during the party season! Everyone should feel special during this time of year and this princess hairstyle will help that!
