Our Favorite 5-Minute Holiday Hair Tutorial

We’re well into holiday party season, and that means you need some new tricks for wowing your friends, family and coworkers—especially when you’re going straight from the office to the party. Our favorite style this season is an upside-down roll, also known as a Gibson roll. It takes less than five minutes but looks like it requires way more effort. Watch as we show you how to create this sophisticated updo.

Holiday Party Hair - perfect idea for a new year’s party

  1. Start with your hair freshly combed.
  2. Then tie off sections with some elastics, the more sections – the more braid buns.
  3. Braid each section, I alternated between a fishtail braid & three-strand braid.
  4. It’s optional to pull apart all the braids, I did it for a fuller look & it helps make the buns look like flowers.
  5. Next I took each braid and started pinning them in to messy buns with bobby pins.
