Holiday time is upon us, and if you're like us, you have a million holiday parties, family gatherings, New Years celebrations, work Christmas parties, and more to attend. And, if you're also like us, you're a busy gal on the go and don't exactly have hours to spend doing your hair and make up for all these holiday affairs. Our beautiful friend, Haley's Corner, has got you covered with 5 Easy Hair Hacks to Get Ready Fast so you can spend less time on your pre-party routine, and spend more time being merry with your loved ones!
Hair Hack #1: For Frizzy Hair
If you have frizzy or messy hair, and don't have the time to really work on it and get it silky smooth, the best thing to do is to throw your hair up into a bun. Not to worry though, your bun doesn't have to be boring!
Put your hair into a messy high ponytail while leaving some face framing pieces.
Separate the ponytail into two sections and twist them to tame any little flyaways, then twist each section around on each other. This will ensure that your bun is perfect every time.
Add a glitzy hair accessory or even a choker around the bun for that extra glam, a red lip, and you're good to go!
Hair Hack #2: Get Beautiful Curls, Instantly
Have you ever looked at the clock and realized you spent just a little too much time on Instagram before getting ready and just don't have time to curl your hair? It's no secret that hair extensions are a super easy way to take your hair game to the next level. Keep your Luxy Hair extensions pre-curled, and when you just don't have enough time in your hair routine to take a curler to your hair, simply clip in your extensions for instant thick, long, beautiful, curled hair.

Add a few curls at the top of your hair to polish up your hair...and that's it! You're ready to go in 5 minutes flat.
Hair Hack #3: For Flat Hair
Sometimes, our hair has been sitting in the same position for so long that it just doesn't perk up with volume like we want it to. Here's a hair hack that is a total game changer for your pre Christmas party routine to give your hair that big volume without spraying an entire can of hairspray in your hair!
Take a comb and create a deep side part - this will make it look like you've been teasing your hair for hours. (Your secret's safe with us!)
Add a spritz of hairspray to the part to ensure that your hair doesn't fall back into its regular position and comb down those little flyaway hairs.
Add some gold bobby pins to jazz up this hairstyle. If you don't have any gold bobby pins, you can simply take regular black bobby pins and spray paint them gold.
Hair Hack #4: Accessorize
Ladies, even when your hair is not looking its best or you're running out of time to make it to your holiday party, a simple hair accessory can make all the difference to make it look like you've spent hours on your hair.
Take two sections of hair at the front of your head, twist them into a crown toward the back of your head, and secure with a bobby pin.
Remove a few face framing pieces in the front for that effortless look.
Take a glitzy headband and instead of wearing it like a traditional headband, put it on like a halo or crown. Pull a few pieces up at the roots for extra volume.
If you have some extra time, curl a few pieces for even more volume. And that's it! Go forth, ladies, and "sleigh" this holiday season!
Hair Hack #5: The French Twist
If all hope is lost and you're really stuck on time with no idea what to do with your hair, this hair hack is perfect and will look totally bomb at your holiday or Christmas party. It looks chic, well-styled, and best of all, takes 5 minutes to create.
Separate your hair into a middle part and start twisting down one side. Add a little piece of hair to the twist as you go to create the French twist.
Once you reach the bottom of your ear, tie the twist off with an elastic.
Add a glitzy accessory to your ponytail to really jazz it up. Haley uses a glam bracelet and secures it around her ponytail with a bobby pin!
