DIY Christmas Hair
So you are ready to make your hair into a Christmas tree? We jumped to the ultimate source, TikTok for great tutorials to find out how people were doing this.
The favorite methods for creating Christmas hairdo seem to be similar to that of creating TROLL hair! Expect a lot of hairspray and possibly some gel to be used to get your long hair into Christmas tree formation. You’ve been warned!
First, let’s state the obvious. You need to have long hair to have a tall tree. A popular Christmas Tree hairdo tutorial suggestion is to use a water bottle. I should clarify, an empty water bottle.
Crazy Hair Day Idea
Years ago, when my daughter was little – at school one of the theme days was Crazy Hair Day. For her Crazy Hair Day we took her long hair and made it look like troll hair. This is very similar to achieving the tree hair look!
Let’s look at how to make your hair into this fabulous Christmas tree updo.
Let's get festive with this fabulous Christmas hair tutorial. Christmas tree hair updo tutorial will show you how to create this tree with your hair! This is the ultimate conversation piece or Christmas party hairstyle!
- Long Hair
- Extra Set of Hands
- Green Hair Color Spray (optional)
- Glitter Spray (optional)
- Empty Water Bottle
- Ponytail Hairband
- Bobby Pins
- Christmas Ornaments
- Battery Powered Christmas Tree Lights - (optional - fairy lights work well!)
- Foil Garland
- Christmas Tree Star
- Hair Brush
- Hair Dryer
- Brush out your hair.
- Flip your head over and place the empty water bottle on top of your head. This is where the extra set of hands will come in handy. You will want to form your hair around the water bottle At the opening of the water bottle, using your rubberband - wrap the ponytail band around your hair and water bottle opening.
- Flip your head carefully back, with your head up. Here is where the fun comes in.
- Your hair most likely didn't all make it. This is where you will use hair gel and bobby pins.
- Find the hair strands that are not secured to the water bottle ponytail situation. Using gel and bobby pins, let's take those hair strands and place up into your hair situation. The idea is to make these hairs look like a Christmas tree.
- After all of your hair is standing and in proper Christmas tree formation - let's spray that hair down. Yes, hairspray. Use a lot - or as much as you feel comfortable with.
- Using the hair gel, smooth your hair up - to finalize the Christmas tree form for your hair.
- Shake your hair lightly and see how secure your tree hair is.
- Are we secure? A trick to help gelify your hair is to use a hair dryer with the gel. Don't get too close to your hair and don't do this for any extended length of time. Using the hair dryer - blast your hair to create a glue effect.
- Next, let's get decorating. 2 of the items on our Christmas tree hair updo tutorial list are optional: glitter spray and green hair color spray. If you want to use these, let's do this now before we decorate your Christmas Tree hair.
- Whether you made your hair green and/lor glittery or not, now it's time to decorate your hair tree!
- Using the ornaments, secure them to your hair using bobby pins. Make sure to shake your head gently after you have secured to ensure that these don't fall off when you walk or move your head.
- Next, time to garland the hair! Wrap the garland and battery powered Christmas lights to your hair. Remember, if you are using Christmas lights to make sure the wire easily goes down. Suggestion: tape the Christmas light battery pack to the inside of your shirt.
- Last, is the Christmas tree topper or should I say, HAIR Christmas tree topper! Using bobby pins, and balance - find the best way to secure this topper to the top of your Christmas hair.
This requires a LOT of hair spray and gel. We made my daughter's hair into troll hair using a similar method (minus the Christmas decor.). Plan to wash your hair a few times to remove all of the gunk.
