Tinsel doesn’t have to be reserved just for party decorations – why not have it weaved into your hair for that extra sparkle and shine to your look this yuletide season? Hair tinsel is said to be pretty lightweight and feels soft and silky like hair – so don’t worry about feeling like a walking, talking Christmas tree.   2. Galaxy hair

This gorgeous hair trend involves dyeing your hair the same colours inspired by the galaxy, such as darker shades of blue, deep purple, and turquoise.

However, the Galaxy Hair look is not that easy to achieve, so be prepared to spend up to five hours in the hair salon and do note that the upkeep is also quite difficult.

3. Granny hair

There's an interesting new trend where you bleach out your whole head -- and we’re not talking about the yellowish-orange bleached look some of you may have experimented with in your teenage years, but the more light tone that is almost white. If done right, you can look like a snow-kissed angel -- but be careful when bleaching your hair, because it can potentially be damaging and you might end up with fried, frizzy hair and you may end up resembling a real granny (which is probably not really the look you want for the holidays!).     4. Split dye

Call it split-dye or half and half, this bold look where you divide your hair down the middle then dye one side of it a different colour from the other side, is bound to turn heads and raise a few eyebrows!

If you’re the sort who can’t decide which colour you would like to dye your hair for this festive season, just pick your two favourites and go for both.

5. Rub-on hair tattoo

 Want to get a tattoo for the holidays but not sure which part to get inked? Try this unique tattoo idea on your hair instead and add some extra shimmer to your look! Rub-on hair tattoos are very similar to temporary body tattoos where you can choose your favourite design from a printed sheet and dab it onto your hair with a wet cotton ball. Easy as pie!     6. Rainbow roots

First there was ombre hair, where you kept your roots natural and dye the ends a different colour – well, now there is the complete opposite which is known as Rainbow Roots!

Different colours of dye are applied to just the roots of your hair, leaving the tips au naturale – which is great for those who want a bit of colour in their life without committing to getting a whole head of rainbow.

This funky hairdo where luscious strands of colourful feathers are added to your hair, is pretty quick and easy to do by yourself, as long as you have the right tools. It adds a bit of edge to your look and you can choose different feathers to suit different occasions. Partridge in a pear tree, anyone?     8. Sand art hair

You know those glass bottles or jars where you layer different coloured sand inside to create a pretty decorative piece to display in your living room?

Well, now it has been turned into a cool new hair trend and it looks as gorgeous as it sounds! This daring hairstyle is a mix of super bold colours with ombre hues, so that you can get the best of both worlds and achieve mega rainbow hair.

9. Shaved head design

 Another hair tattoo idea for bold mums who are itching to get inked but aren't ready to commit just yet. This non-surgical technique gives the illusion that you have a tattoo on your shaved head, but it's actually just a matter of styling your hair into any design of your choice. Although this look is definitely for those with guts and most likely mums with alternative lifestyles, you'll definitely stand out in the crowd and have some pretty interesting holiday pictures fondly look at, years from now.     10. Fluid hair painting

For those of us who dream of becoming mermaids some day (hey, a girl can only dream, right?), this new hair dyeing technique is the closest you’ll ever get to that childhood fantasy.

Your hair will be fanned out onto a table and the hair colourist will apply the hair dye to achieve a soft gradient look which will look less severe than if you were to get foil highlights.

Do you dare?

Admit it, whether or not you will actually go out and get these bold festive hairstyles, there must be at least one or two of them which made you gaze longingly at for an extra minute or so and you are a little tempted to ask your hair stylist if he can give you the same look.

Do something different this holiday season and go for one of these hair trends – after all, it’s only hair and it can either be washed out, dyed over, cut out, and will eventually grow back in time.

So come on mamas, change up your look and try something new!
