#1. The puff

A sleek updo with prominent puff ticks all the right boxes, especially when a glamorous statement is the goal you have in mind. The louder the statement you want, the larger the puff should be but ensure that it’s the width you aim for is one you can handle. After all, big hair is sexy only if you have the zeal to carry it proudly.

#2. Short, sweet coils

The vote is in to rock the beauty of your natural coils in all their goodness. This holiday, take a cue from Keke Palmer and allow textured coils, especially in short lengths, to adorn your head while playing up your facial features.

#3. A wavy affair

This is a classic hairstyle that flatters most face shapes, little wonder many celebs swear by it. The wavy hair, whether tight or loose waves, is a great option for those occasions where you want to command an air of glam and elegance. Although black is often the color of choice, you can surely explore this celebrity hairstyle in other colors. However, keep in mind that going all colorful may distract from the purpose of glam and elegance.

#4. Lock in the locs

This year, celebs seem to have been hit by the locs tsunami as we’re witnessing the hairstyle show up in a variety of ways. From Rihanna to Skai Jackson, Ciara to Winnie Harlow, everyone is getting their locs-fix, and so should you. As this hairstyle is simply edgy, it’s always a great idea to play this up with accessories. In this regard, you can either use beads, cowries, or anything else for that matter and it’ll be a win.

#5. Take a side flip

2000’s inspired hairstyles have heavily resurfaced this 2022, and we’re surely loving it. Think pigtails, bold box braids, and of course, the flipped hairstyle. This hairstyle particularly flatters oval-faced ladies, especially when parted to the sides. The key to nailing this look is to ensure the length doesn’t exceed the neck and the flip is sharp. That is to say, the perfect style is long enough to barely graze your shoulders and short enough to notice the flip.

#6. Curly bun up-do

If ever there was a celebrity hairstyle that evokes a regal appeal, this would definitely be it. Rather than go the normal (*coughs* boring) route of a simple up-do with a bun, why not make things exciting with curly extensions? Although the curly bun updo is a really easy style, it doesn’t appear so. Rather, it looks as though a ton of time and effort was put into making it.

#7. Pixie dust

Lovers of short hair would be having a field day with this one. The pixie cut is one of the trendiest and most stylish short hair you can try, especially if shorter is always better for you. What’s more, it fits most face shapes and is super easy to style. In addition to that, you can work it into any ensemble and you get a solid look. This is because the hairstyle isn’t picky when it comes to outfits. If that isn’t a recipe for slay, we wonder what is.

#8. Fringed bob

Over the decades, celebs have realized the power of a fringe and that’s why many swear by them. Have you ever wondered why this is arguably the most common celebrity hairstyle? Well, here’s the secret: fringe brings out your eyes and highlights your cheekbones. Professional stylists have said that this often makes women feel more confident and sexier. So, if sexy is on your holiday to-do list, why not enlist the help of the fringed bob to accomplish it?

#9. Finger-twist plait with deep curls

This voluminous hairstyle is a mix of girly and sexy. The front part features finger-twist plaits that go all the way to the center, and the deep curls finish off. Although the plaits are an important aspect of this hairstyle, it’s the curls that can really make or mar this look. In order to hit this rightly, opt for curls with enough volume to make your face stand out, but not too much to seem overwhelming, just like Nigerian reality personality Venita Akpofure did here.
