Chrissy Teigen’s Understated Hairstyles Are The Perfect Match For Your Holiday Lineup


Finding the best and most-appropriate hairstyle for all of your holiday obligations can be a daunting task. Perhaps you want something that lasts all day and night, a style that keeps your hair out of your face for a busy day of helping in the kitchen, or an updated version of a classic that you've been wearing for years. If you're in need of some original hair ideas, look no further than Chrissy Teigen's best hairstyles for low-key, easy-to-recreate looks.

Whether she's attending a major award show, promoting one of her latest business ventures, or just out and about running errands with her kids, Teigen likes to keep things interesting when it comes to her hair. She's tried just about every style, from a shoulder-length bob to a super-long ponytail. With the help of one of her closest friends and hairstylist, Jen Atkin, she's able to constantly experiment with new cuts, colors, and styles.

Although you'll likely never completely abandon the classics like loose bouncy curls, a messy bun, or an easy air-dry look, the holidays are a great time to elevate your go-to styles in a new and unique way. Ahead, explore five Teigen-approved hair options that will act as the ultimate stylish addition to your next holiday look.



Teigen was photographed while out and about in New York City on Nov. 8 wearing a playful half-up style. She wore her shoulder-length lob in loose curls, and distinctly parted both sides to make room for the mini ponytail. To make it even more polished, she hid her hair tie by wrapping a piece of hair around the base of the ponytail. Think of this look as the perfect style for second-day hair, when you have no extra time to wash and re-style.

Flat-Iron Waves

Celebrities have gravitated towards shorter hairstyles in recent weeks (even Ariana Grande traded out her signature ponytail for a lob), and Teigen is no exception. The mother-of-two was seen wearing a choppy bob in New York City in Sept. The sleek bends — which were likely created with a flat iron — helped add a playful element to her professional-looking outfit. This holiday season, swap out your curling iron for a looser, laid-back wave like Teigen.

Polished Braids

Teigen showed off an intricate braided style last Feb. in New York City. She took dutch braids to a new level by wearing the classic style with a floral midi-dress, an edgy leather jacket, and her signature, slouchy boots. The key to recreating this look is using the right products — look towards a lightweight hairspray to lock in the style all day long.

Voluminous Ponytail

Teigen was photographed with a luxuriously long and voluminous ponytail last Jan. This is definitely a step up from your average ponytail, but it still requires minimal effort. When creating your own ponytail, keep in mind that you'll want a shiny, tousled texture like Teigen's — the more volume, the better.

Side Slick


On another outing in New York City last Jan., Teigen wore her bob in a slicked-back style featuring a deep side part. The trickiest thing about this look is finding the happy medium between a glossy and greasy texture. To make sure your shiny texture looks intentional, style your hair post shower while it's still damp.
