Easy and Cute Thanksgiving Hairstyles for Long and Short Hair
Happy fall, y’all!
It’s almost Thanksgiving – aka the time of the year when we eat great food, see our loved ones, and reflect on what we’re grateful for. It’s also a time when you pose for family photos or Friendsgiving moments and get tagged all over social media!
Thanksgiving Hair You’ll Be Thankful For
That’s right. You need a cute hairstyle that’ll look great at the dinner table and in photos. We’ve got a bunch of trendy ideas for styling your tresses this holiday season. Read on for some Thanksgiving hair inspiration!
Easy Thanksgiving Hairstyles
The holidays can be a really exciting time of year. And they can also be really stressful. Let’s not add to your stress and keep your hairstyle as stress-free as possible, okay?!
Here are some ideas that you can pull off in no time:
An amped up ponytail.
This timeless look you know and love. Wanna elevate your pony? Add a chic hair accessory.
A braided half-up half-down.
Instead of pinning the top half of your hair in a mini ponytail, braid the two sections of your hair and then secure them with a hair elastic. Beautiful and easy!
An elegant bun.
Throw your hair up and let your gorgeous locks just do their thing.
A new ‘do.
Try something new! If you don’t usually do much with your hair, simply straightening or curling your hair can make a huge difference. Get out those hot tools (low heat please)!
A voluminous addition.
Though all of the above styles are simple, they can really level up your look at those upcoming festivities. We’re not done yet! Here are a few more styles to consider.
Why You Should Consider Braids for Thanksgiving
If you’re not sure how to wear your hair on Thanksgiving, might we suggest braids?
Why? Well, braids are versatile, and make for a gorgeous style in every kind of hair. Just ask Wicked Roots Ambassador Ashley Dickerson who’s showing off her favorite Thanksgiving hairstyle with a gorgeous ponytail braid using our 16” Band It in Dimensional Blonde
Here are some fun braid ideas you can try out:
- A classic three-strand braid
- A single simple yet refined fishtail
- A crown braid above sleek, straight hair
- A single loose French braid
- A lovely side braid
- Two tightly braided French braids!
Whatever braid you choose, you’ll look super cute. Guaranteed.
Headed to a fancier Thanksgiving affair? Accessorize your braids with some Thanksgiving hair clips. We love a side braid with a beaded or feathered accessory to elevate the whole look.
Thanksgiving Hairstyles for Short Hair
There’s really no competition: Our favorite Thanksgiving look for short hair – whether it’s straight or curly – is a classic low pony. Straight short hair gives off glam and edgy energy, whereas curly short hair has bubbly and fun vibes.
Another one of our favorite hairstyles is a gently tousled look accessorized with one large clip. Gold clips are especially trendy for Thanksgiving.
And you can’t go wrong with a headband. We just LOVE a simple festive headband with short hair.
Now let’s take a look at some of our favorite long hair styles!
Thanksgiving Hairstyles for Long Hair
The options for Thanksgiving hairstyles for long hair are exciting and plentiful – kinda like your Thanksgiving blessings!
One of our favorite looks for the holiday season (okay, fine, and every season) is a few single mini braids hanging down on one side and pinned back on the other.
The gorgeous @jaxvicious is rocking this look with her 20” Platinum Blonde Clip It extensions.
Another classic is a low bun. It’s sophisticated and subtly sexy but still appropriate. You can let wisps of hair frame your face or you can pull all your hair back tightly into a bun – both are great options. You can leave your low bun low-key or you can elevate it with a side part. Clips and pins can also give you that extra festive flair.
Thanksgiving Hairstyles for Kids
If you’re looking for Thanksgiving hairstyles for girls, we’ve got some straightforward (but still fun!) hairstyle ideas for kids:
- Two pigtails. An endlessly adorable look that you can’t go wrong with.
- Two mini buns. Make this cute look even cuter by pinning a bow on each of the buns!
- One French braid. It’s simple but well-loved for a reason.
We hope you got some good inspo for your holiday season hairstyle now! If you’re still not sure how to wear your hair this Thanksgiving, we got you! Google “Thanksgiving hair tutorial” for even more options.
Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the holiday season!
