7 Best Hairstyles To Try Out This Holiday Based On Your Face Shape


It’s the festive season and we are out and about, trying to put things together to celebrate the best time of the year. One of the fun part is selecting the best hairstyle for Christmas as well as the parties you’ll be attending. From pixie cuts to faux locs, Black women fearlessly shared some serious hair inspiration to serve you well this holiday.

They say that versatility is the spice of life and this shows when it comes to selecting a hairstyle for Christmas, or any other time. Considering that the shapes of our faces can vary greatly, it’s important to opt for a hairstyle that flatters yours. For example, we know that jaw-length bob looks amazing on oval faces, but that same hairdo doesn’t work as well for ladies with round faces. As a result of this obvious fact, this curation covers the best hairstyle every face shape can explore this holiday.

Check out 7 best hairstyles for Christmas Black women can try through all the festivities…

#1. Sleek pixie cut

If you have a round face, this should be on your must-try list this holiday. Most short hair  flatter your face, and if you want to take the pixie up a notch, add a side-sweeping bang for an extra depth.

#2. Go long with waves

An oval-shaped face has quite a number of hairstyle inspirations to choose from. However, one we particularly love is the wavy option. This seems to be the preferred choice for most celebs with oval faces as it instantly highlights your cheekbones, which is lovely.

#3. Sleek center part

When you spot a lady owning the sleek center part hairdo like nobody’s business, it may just be a heart-shaped-face girl. No jokes, this hairstyle fits so perfectly as though it was invented specially for you. While the mane also works great for other face shapes, including oval, heart girls take it through the roof.

#4. Ponytail

Square faces, you already know your jawline is fire. That means it’s only fitting that you opt for styles that bring this strength to the fore. A ponytail is one to try out as it both accentuates your jawline and cheekbones. However, there are still many more options to explore. A good place to start is with Angelina Jolie as she always serves hair inspiration for square faces.

#5. Locs

Now, a hairstyle that works for every face shape. Faux locs command a different air of edge that’s very much welcome this holiday, especially when you want to make a statement. They are available in various textures, lengths, and colors so you have no excuse not to try them out. No jokes, if a rusty edge is your goal, then, locs shouldn’t be ignored.

#6. Braids

Next up are braids, because no hair inspiration list is ever complete without them. This is where versatility, trend, and style collide to produce a timeless and ever-relevant hairstyle. Whether you choose box braids, twists, or knotless variations, you’ll certainly be in the right. Plus, you can style them in so many ways for a refreshing look.

#7. Fulani braids

Fulani braids are the hairstyle for Christmas that keeps on giving. Many celebs and influencers are riding on this train because they’ve realized one thing: there’s no wrong way to do this hair. In addition, they’re so many styles available to choose from that rounding off the year without trying out at least one should be a crime. And if you’re in the mood for a little drama, then play up your look with accessories like beads and cowries. They’re simply fierce.
