Turning Heads Linkup- Holiday Hairstyles


Hello Friends

Here we are, just 5 days before Christmas. I am looking forward to seeing my brothers, mom, and pups. It will be a good time. Mom sent me the meals and appetizers we are having for Christmas Eve and Christmas and Mmmm. they sounds delicious! I love smoked salmon, crab dip, fondue etc. . Myself and sister in law are in charge of the Holiday Cocktails, and I found a great list at delish.com. I think we are making the Gingerbread Egg Nog White Russian!  Ill be sharing our Holiday pic, but here is one of the pups in their Santa Suits that they’ll be wearing Christmas eve. For today, let’s talk about hair!


Anyhow, I thought I would change it up today and share a few different hair looks for the Holiday. I also thought I would share some of the products I use to keep my hair healthy. The first look is what I like to do if I am going out. I use hot rollers and keep them in while I am doing my makeup.  Two birds… I thought I would share 2 previous pics when i used hot rollers. I use Joico, AG, various shampoos as I like to try different salon brands.


Loose curls- Just the hot roller curls brushed out a bit more 🙂


Body and Curls with Hot rollers. I keep them in for 30 minutes as I do my makeup. My hair is fine, so this gives it a lot of needed volume  I also use Kerastase Nectar Thermique as a heat protectant and Kerastase Beautifying Oil as a serum foLook two: This is not a difficult look, but two steps, especially if you have fine hair. I have fine hair, just a lot of it! I will curl my hair with hot rollers, then put it in a curled ponytail. Add a large clip with jewels for a festive look!


The Festive Ponytail- After my hair is curled with hot rollers, I put it back in a ponytail. Add a large clip with jewels or sparkles. This vintage clip is from Etsy. There was rain today so its a little bit frizzy, I’d use a serum for less frizz, but you get the picture! 🙂 I love peacocks as a close second to dragonflies! Here are some other great peacock clips: HERE, HERE , HERE and HERE


The Bun. I take previously curled hair in a low ponytail. The hair is then pulled through the large donut. Spread out the hair to cover the donut so only the hair shows. Put another elastic band around the donut to hold the bun in place. Add a jeweled come or clip to the hair for a holiday look. Spray with hairspray to hold hair in place. Takes 15 min. I would use more hairspray next time for any fly aways. 🙂

Love these  jeweled clips and combs:  Etsy Love this, this, this,  and this.  Found on Etsy.


How do you wear your hair for the Holidays? Tell me the products you use to keep your hair healthy.

    Jess, my hair is the same – very fine, but lots of it. I tend to use all sorts of products so will take a look at your recommendations next time I’m buying, so thanks for that.

    You have a such great mom! The food sounds so yummy. I am literally drooling. Lol. I need to upgrade my hair game this year but to be honest with you, I am really not good at it. Well, I will learn more. Thank you for the post and I may try the donut technique. 😉

    Thank you so much for your kind comments on my blog and don’t forget to come back every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to join the linkup party!

    You have the most beautiful hair Jess!. The soft curls in the first photo are so pretty. I keep meaning to try out heated rollers or a curling wand. I get a bit bored with the same style, but I’m desperate to get my cut at the moment. I’m hoping my hairdresser can fit me in between Christmas and New Year!

    You have the most beautiful hair Jess, I have always thought so. I have fine hair too but unfortunately I dont have a lot of hair so it takes a lot for me to put volume in my hair. I need to try the curlers again. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family xxxx

    What a fun post! Your hair always look AMAZING, Dear. I have fine hair too, but not as much of it as you have! And you know I love seeing the pups dressed for Xmas. I gotta get out Lucky’s little Xmas sweater and take a pic before the season gets away from me!

    Man your hair is fabulous Jess! I have to admit that I do like having longer hair for the variety of styles!
    How do you use the oil? Do you put it in when it’s wet or after it’s dry?

    • Jess Jannenga

      Thanks Jodie! I use the kerastase oil with my hair wet. I use just one pump mostly on the ends and it helps with dryness. xx

    You hair is so pretty! Love everything about it. I tend to wear mine straight mostly because curls never seem to hold. I haven’t tried hot rollers since my hair got longer.. I’ll have to try again! I’m a HUGE fan of batiste dry shampoo and Aveda’s Damage Control line.

      Thank you Julie! I have just a bit of wave in otherwise straight hair.. for me mine looks too limp if I keep it straight. Thank you for sharing the products you use, I like Aveda too!xx

    Heated rollers are my thing too Jess! I have been cutting and colouring my own hair for the last 10 years. Got fed up with never getting the result I wanted! Love the elegant ponytail. I sometimes wish my hair was longer! Have a fantastic Christmas my blogger friend xx

      Jess, your hair is beautiful! I’ve actually been thinking I need to use hot rollers again because they give such great volume, but I definitely need some practice. My hair is so long now that one set never seems to be enough! ha. Loving all our your hairstyles. Have a wonderful Christmas!
