This one has been doing the rounds on Instagram for a while now, and rightfully so. Not only does it scream Christmas, but it is also sure to make people around you smile. And, isn’t that what Christmas is all about? Spreading joy? It is so easy to do.

All you need is a medium-sized red pom-pom, a pair of googly eyes, and miniature reindeer horns that should be available quite easily, given the time of the year, at any fancy store around you. Don’t forget to add a donut bun and a heap of bobby pins to that list.

All you need to do is tie your hair in a ponytail and fix up a low donut bun Once it is fixed and steady, fit the pom-pom using bobby pins. Make sure the pins are concealed. Then, stick in the reindeer horns and the eyes on the bun with pins. You will have to fix it so that it stays intact for a long time, and make sure it is well-placed. You could pair this hairstyle with formal as well as casual attire.

2. The Bow Tie Braid Bun
