Leave it to TikTok to be a huge source of inspiration when it comes to trying new holiday hairstyles for Christmas Eve.

Whether your hair is short, medium, or long, straight, wavy, or curly, there’s a cute and festive holiday style you probably haven’t tried but would look great on you. After all, getting glam for end-of-the-year parties and get-togethers is the perfect excuse to bust out some skills that you haven’t flexed all year. Plus, there are so many unique hairstyles that don’t require a ton of practice (or bobby pins) and won’t take you that long to master.

With this is mind, here are some of the best holiday hairstyles you can rock on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day and beyond.

There are three different hairstyle tutorials for short hair in this one TikTok by @shaysullivann. The first features a twisted look on one side of your head. The second features two high buns on the head (with an emphasis on your bangs, if you have ’em), and the third is a classic yet pretty high bun.

Extra points if you have the covetable curtain bangs that have been such hot trend this year.

TikToker @morveskim claims all of these hairstyles she demonstrates (there are three of them) take five minutes. And you know what? We believe her. The first is simply two pigtail braids with pretty red bows at the end.

The second and third looks are both versions of a half-up half down. But with the addition of bows (or gel, for that iconic wet look), they look remarkably different. Choose your fave, and five minutes from now, you’ve got a new look!

OK, you may need to watch @audreyvictoria_‘s long holiday hairstyle tutorial a few times before you understand what she’s doing. But, here’s the gist: She makes two bun-ponytails at the crown of her head, then wraps one of the buns over the other to create a pretty superbun. The last step just requires pinning this hair art into place.

The use of string in @truleytalentedbeauty‘s high bun tutorial is truly genius (and she’s being praised for it in the comments). Although this look takes more than a few steps, each is very clear and simple to follow—resulting in a truly high-glam hairstyle that you’ll want to repeat again and again.

There are so many more #holidayhairstyles tutorials on TikTok that you can find and emulate for Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve. Pair one with a fab holiday fit and some festive nails, and you’ll be a stunner at your family gathering. Happy holidays!
