There’s something about the holidays that makes us San Diego girls want to get a little extra dressed up– and nothing completes a beautiful holiday look like great hair. With so many work parties, family get-togethers, and soirees (or keggers) to attend during this season, you might find yourself in need of a few new holiday hairstyles. Afterall, who wants to wear the same look to every event? Below are some of our favorite easy holiday updos and hairstyles for busy San Diego girls.

Dutch Braid


If you spend time on Instagram or Pinterest, you know how popular Dutch braids are. Believe it or not, this beautiful braid is pretty easy to DIY. Much like the French braid, the Dutch braid is achieved by adding in strands while you braid. However, instead of crossing the new hair over like a French braid, you’re passing it from side to side underneath (think of it as an “inside out” French braid). A Dutch braid also looks gorgeous along the side of your hairline.
