We've compiled the Top 5 Holiday 'Dos from some of the hottest bloggers in the industry. Check them out below!
1. Halo Crown/Goddess Braid
The Halo Crown, or Goddess Braid, is a favorite amongst many naturals for the elegance that this hairstyle has. It's super simple, and is the perfect style for a dressy or casual look. This style can be done on most lengths and all textures. Some prefer to blow-out their hair prior to doing this style for a more sleek look, however it can be done without blowing your hair out. Ms Danti created a beautiful Halo Crown, perfect for the holidays! Check it out here:

2. Spiral Curls/Rod Set
We all know and love the classic spiral curl look! Many of us grew up getting that infamous rod set because it was quick, easy, beautiful, and long-lasting! It's also a gorgeous option for your holiday look. Mahogany Curls completed her spiral curl look with the aid of Curlformers, however, you can achieve the same or similar look with flexirods, bantu knots, a curling wand, or perm rods.

The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to updo styles! You can create styles with your hair by bunning, braiding, or twisting, and of course you'll need plenty bobby pins. You can also create great updos with hair extensions such as marley hair. Marley hair has become a go-to hair extension within the Natural Hair community because it has such a similar texture to our natural hair, and it is very affordable. Here are a few of our favorite holiday updos:
