Ever wanted your hair to look just like a Christmas tree? Whether or not the answer to that question is “YES!” or “Um, not really,” there’s a tutorial out there to help give your tresses some serious Christmas spirit.
In the 2015 video “Christmas Tree Hair” (which has since been excerpted on Pretty52’s Facebook page), a pair of jokers named Bridget Pugliese and Carter Thomas give you a simple DIY to literally turn your hair into a Christmas tree.
All you need is an empty water bottle and some Christmas decor—namely lights (battery-operated, of course), ribbon, ornaments, and bells.
It will really only work if your hair is long enough to cover a water bottle, of course. Basically you just put that water bottle on top of your head, secure it, cover it with your hair and proceed to decorate the resulting tree shape made out of your hair. It’s an uber-easy way to bring some humorous festivity to a Christmas event.
Pugliese and Thomas, both actors, clearly present this hairstyle as a bit tongue-in-cheek during the video. The how-to is real, of course, but we definitely get a vibe that they’re not entirely serious. But hey, they’re having fun! And so you will you if you try this look!
While Christmas tree hair may be a little over the top for, say, an office holiday party, it could be just right to get some laughs out of family and friends at a less formal gathering. I’m betting this would be absolutely perfect for an ugly Christmas sweater party or pub crawl. And for kids, this is would be a big hit for a crazy hair day at school!
If you want to take it a step further, YouTuber Maddison Bush added some green hair paint to her version. Very … Grinch-y!
Do you think you could pull off Christmas tree hair? Have you ever tried before?
