Elastic Christmas Tree Hairstyle

Christmas tree hair tutorial

Hey guys!  Our hair tutorial this week is a recreation of a Christmas hairstyle we posted on our blog way back in 2009 (before we did much on YouTube.) "The Princess" was only 6 years old in our original Christmas tree hairstyle post and is now 11!  (How fun to look back at those old pics.) 

We wanted to add a new Christmas tree hairstyle video tutorial this holiday season (for those of you who have requested it over the years.)

As you may have noticed, this "tree hairstyle" design is quite subtle and not obviously a Christmas tree at first glance... which is what we wanted for today. The Princess was headed to an elegant Christmas dinner the day we filmed this style, and we didn't want an overly obnoxious Christmas tree in her hair for this particular occasion!

Of course, this half up-half down hairstyle could really be worn any time and not just for Christmas.  The "elastic net" look always reminds me of a medieval princess for some reason! If you wanted to, you could place a small jewel (or hair jewelry) at each elastic for some added sparkle, which would be so pretty and glamorous.

If you are wanting more of a festive looking tree for a lively Christmas party.... or even a hairstyle to go with an "ugly sweater contest," ;) you could add some ornaments or lights to this style (which would make the Christmas tree really stand out!)  Also, if you place the elastics closer together, you can form more of an obvious triangular tree shape (if that is the look you are going for.)  We didn't have any ornaments or lights laying around when we filmed this style, so we photo-shopped some in for you as an example below!

You might notice the elastic at the top of our "tree" is yellow, while the rest of the elastics are green.  The yellow elastic is supposed to be the star!  You could also place a brown elastic, or braid the middle section at the bottom of your tree as a trunk if you want.

Supplies needed to create this hairstyle:
  • Several small elastics.  (We used 15 total.)  The brand of elastics shown in our video are "Goody Ouchless."  Of course, you can use any color or brand you want.
  • Accessories such as ornaments or lights to decorate your tree (optional.)
  • Water, gel, or pomade, to help control flyaways (optional.)
  • Around 15-20 minutes.
