No-Hassle Holiday Looks

Now that we're in the throes of the holidays, you're likely frequenting your fair share of work functions, family dinners and ugly sweater parties.

Save time and look party-ready with 10 easy style ideas and tutorials from our "No-Hassle Holiday Looks" PInterest board.


Never underestimate the power of a headband when it comes to style and saving time. You can slide one on with your hair down, in a ponytail, bun - you name it! Make your own cute fabric flower band using this tutorial from

Tinted Lip Balm

Avoid chapped lips and add color using colored lip balms. They give a pretty tint like lipstick yet add moisture in one step. This Pinterest post displays the Revlon line, but there are plenty of brand options to choose from.

Texture Cream

Texturing cream is a short hairstyle's best friend. You can use it to go sleek for a classy tress or rearrange piecy chunks to inspire edge. Refer to this picture of Ginnifer Goodwin for a textured look.

Wine Stain

A lip stain is a quick way to dive into this winter trend. It's easy and stays in place, but make sure not to go over board with the color or it will look too harsh.

Hair Pins

Pretty and practical, hairpins add style while getting the strands out of your face. You can opt for interesting pin placement, colors, or a decorative brooch.

Shimmery Eye Shadow

Nothing says dreamy like a shimmery shadow. It's an easy one-step way to say "I've arrived!" like with this shadow on Etsy. For winter, you can play around with trendy colors like purple, green or blue!

Wrapped Pony

The classic hairstyle gets an upgrade for a stylish girl on the go. All you have to do is leave a piece out to wrap, wind it around the ponytail and pin it in place. You can also tease it for height and texture.

Eye Liner

While the classic cat eye may be tempting, make your easy look interesting by switching to a colored liner. We even included photos for what liner would compliment your eyes.

Double Twist Bun

This double twist is more than your average bun! This twist not only intrigues, but is easy to boot! The minimal steps makes a maximum style for your holiday look.


A flushed face is a fast option to focus on your pretty bone structure! Apply on the apples and along the cheekbones to highlight your lovely face.
