Get the party started – Christmas party hair and makeup ideas

Christmas party season is nearly here, but don’t panic. While you’re still deciding between outfits, shoes and pudding options, we’ve narrowed down the best Christmas party hair and makeup ideas for your event. So whether you’re stepping into a ball gown or stepping out onto the town, we’ve got the style to suit you.

Christmas party hair ideas

We all know that time is limited this season, so we’ve picked four party-worthy hairdos that are quick and easy to perfect.

The Christmas chignon

Perfect for those black tie and ballgown events, a chignon bun is sleek and Christmas chic. Plus, with a mirror, hairband and pack of bobby pins, you can easily achieve a chignon bun yourself. If you want a more relaxed look, try a deconstructed version, leaving sections of your hair wavy and loose.

The party ponytail

The party ponytail is ideal for anyone planning to spend the evening on the dancefloor. Glam your ponytail up by French braiding the very top of your hair, using a large round barrel brush to achieve extra bounce and wearing it high.

The jazzed up down do

For those that prefer wearing their hair long in the winter, you can’t go wrong with some Christmas hair accessories. Add a touch of sophistication to half-up, half-down styles by using a velvet ribbon, bring a dash of sparkle to down-dos with a diamante hair slide, or go all out by adding a glittery bow to the side of your hair.

The festive fishtail

Bring out your inner Elsa by wearing your hair in a loose and messy fishtail. Braids are ideal for keeping hair out of your face, but part of the party. Just don’t forget to add a spritz of hairspray once you’ve finished.

Christmas makeup tips

But it’s not just your hair that we have covered this season. With multiple parties, gatherings and meals, your makeup bag is going to take a bashing over the next month, but these tips should help save you time and money.


A lash and brow tint can make your eyes look larger, your lashes longer, your brows thicker and your makeup routine effortless. The process takes only 15 to 20 minutes, and the results can last up to six weeks – taking you right up to Christmas.


Mack Hair Rugby Christmas nails

T’is the season to be glittery, but we all know how long glittery nail varnish takes to remove. Save time and effort by treating yourself to a set of acrylics this December. Acrylic nails can last up to eight weeks with growth filling in between, and we’ve got a variety of festive colours to suit any outfit.
