Decorated Pull Through Braids! 3 Holiday Hairstyle Ideas

3 cute Christmas hairstyles! Decorated pull through braids, video tutorial.

These 3 ponytail Christmas hairstyles would be great for many holiday parties and events this year!  We are loving these "decorated pull-through braids" as they are festive and fun, but not overly crazy.  I could see these styles working for little girls as well as teens and women. These 3 hairstyles could be worn to a Christmas party, any upcoming holiday event, to school or work, for New Years Eve, to church, or even a hairstyle to go with an ugly sweater contest. ;)

In this video hair tutorial, we show 3 different techniques for creating the decorated pull through braids. 

#1 Pull through braid with tinsel. This is the traditional method and most popular technique we have seen to make the braid (using garland as a substitute for the standard second section of hair in our decorated variation.)

#2 Bubble braid with pulled through beads.  We came up with this method as we were experimenting and love it, as it halves the amount of elastics used in a traditional pull through style!

#3 Reverse pull through braid with ribbon.  We have shared this inverted or reverse technique in the past.  For this tutorial we replaced the second section of hair with holiday ribbon.

Of course, these hairstyles can be worn for many occasions year round and not just for Christmas!
 
Supplies needed to recreate these styles:
  • 1 large elastic or hair tie for the top of the ponytail.
  • Several medium size clear elastics (the amount will depend on the length of hair you are working with as well as the technique chosen.)
  • Decor for your pull through braid.  You could really add any type of ribbon, garland, beads, lace, yarn, etc. for all 3 of the techniques shown. We found all of our supplies at the Dollar Store.
  • Scissors to cut your decor to desired length.
  • You could definitely add some ornaments or lights to these styles (if that is the look you are going for.)  I'm thinking some jewels or other hair accessories placed at each elastic would also be lovely if you are wanting some added sparkle.
