'Tis the season for glitz and glam, but who needs extravagant accessories when you’ve got a dazzling 'do? The holiday season is a nonstop photo op, so make sure your hair looks as festive as you feel. Try these merry-making styles for every occasion and be the envy of all as the best tressed around the tree.

Looking at Lights

The casual yet classic twisted ponytail with a loose braid is perfect for rolling around with your girlfriends or your family looking at lights. Throw on some skinnies with a sweater and boots for the perfect ensemble to sip cocoa (or whatever) from your thermos and enjoy the ride.

Christmas Morning Photo Op

It’s really early, but mom insists on snapping pics of you opening presents. Not to worry: pull your hair back in a messy updo and secure it down with a few sparkly elastic headbands; then smile and say, “I’ve been good all year for this?!”

Family Hanukkah Dinner

Your grandmother is always telling you to pull back that messy mane or you’ll end up with hair in your plate. Well, she has a point! To create peace and joy around the table this year, pull back the top half of your crown and secure it with a dainty headpiece like this adorable Chanel bow on Cara Delevingne.

Office Holiday Party

You want to let your hair down a little with your co-workers, but getting a little too sloppy could haunt you into 2015. A fishtail braid looks fun and festive but has enough structure to keep you looking put together even after the karaoke breaks out.

Ugly Sweater Party

Because your sweater is a hideous crime against fashion, blow them away with a sophisticated look like this chic, modern beehive. Everyone will be so focused on your sleek updo, they’ll forget about the bell-donning reindeer on your jumper.

Embody the holiday spirit and give your pals some laughs as you celebrate the holidays with a tiny Christmas vignette crown atop your head, like Miley Cyrus did. Warning: headache likely to follow.
