No matter how you spend Thanksgiving, there’s a hairstyle that can carry you from morning parades to evening feasts. Whether you’re running in a local turkey trot, ”Turkin 9 - 5” in the kitchen and need something that creates a stunning style your guests will “gobble” up in a flash, or to style with festive adornments, we’ve got you covered.
Below are three of our favorite hairstyles that’ll give your friends and families “pumpkin” to talk about!
For Cooking All Day
When you’re cooking over heat all day, you may not have hours to prepare for guests. But that doesn’t mean you have to “wing” it. Heatless curls are the perfect option when you’re short on time. You can start them the night before, and let them continue to tighten while you work through the day.
As it gets closer to your guests arriving, let your curls down and give them a quick run through with your fingers to style the look. You don’t have to “squash” your style because you were in the kitchen all day, heatless curls style on their own so getting ready is a “piece of pie”.
- Dampen your hair and add styling mousse to help hold the curls.
- Create several small ponytails by dividing your hair into between 3 - 9 sections.
- Make sure to secure each section with a tiny hair tie at the base.
- Starting from the top of the ponytail, wrap your hair around the tiny hair tie until you've wrapped the entire ponytail, secure it with a large hair tie, and repeat on each ponytail.
- Let them sit until you’re ready to release your curls.
Turkey Trots and Races
Before you activate “Feast Mode” you’ll be activating your beast mode in these annual charity events. And we’d like to recommend a bubble braid for the Turkey Trot. By using spiral hair ties like ours, you can add pops of color to complete your look.
Whether you have a festive tulle running skirt, a turkey headdress or hat, you can keep the color patterns flowing with each bubble to offset the boring race bib on your back. And if you want to add ribbons or feathers, they slide perfectly into the hair tie.
- Brush any knots or tangles out of your hair and tie it into a ponytail.
- Take another hair tie and secure it a couple inches below your first hair tie or however large you want the bubble to be.
- Tease the section of hair to loosen it and create the bubble.
- Repeat these steps and add hair ties until you’ve reached the end of your ponytail.
For All Day Comfort to Dinner
When you want to look “gourdeous” for a formal dinner, or if you’re going casual and plan to “gobble til you wobble”, the sleek low bun will carry you comfortably all day. You can go elaborate with a chignon with a braided wrap for texture, or use a standard low bun. It’s up to you as it is your day to relax.
- Remove any knots or tangles from your hair with a hair brush.
- Gather your hair at the nape of your neck for a low ponytail and secure it with a hair tie.
- Twist the ponytail until it begins to coil, then wrap it around the base of the ponytail.
- Secure the bun with a hair tie and tuck the end of the ponytail into the bun.
- Use a finishing spray to keep flyaways out and the sleek look in.
