Hair and Makeup Tips for The Holidays


At David’s Beautiful People hair salon, we pride ourselves on making our clients look and feel better than when they came in. If you’re in North North Bethesda, MD or surrounding areas, give us a visit and see how a personalized stylist can help you achieve an incredible look. One of the biggest questions we get around the holidays is what to do with your hair and makeup.

The holidays are a great time to reconnect with friends and family. And they’re an opportunity for renewal as well. However, you want to make sure you look your best. Being fashionable and having the appropriate hairstyle for the occasion is key.

So to help you have confidence all season long, here are some important hair and makeup tips for the holidays:

Hairstyles and Makeup

Like so many things, the holidays start with the hair! Luckily, our stylists can help you with anything you need. But let’s take a look at five popular haircuts and colors you should consider this season:

Blond All Year Long

It’s no secret that we don’t get as much sunlight in the winter months here in Maryland. However, that’s no reason that you shouldn’t be able to rock a beautiful, bright blond shade all year round! Our professional stylists and colorists can help you change up your color or maintain it for the holidays. And with some extensions as well, you’ll be able to wear your hair in a variety of styles for every occasion.

Match this hair with a foundation that adds some additional color. The contrast will recreate a fun summer look, even when the sun’s being shy! Whether you are preparing for an office party, family get together, or special vacation with your significant other, always look your best. And it never hurts to hire a professional makeup artist!

Short and Spicy

The myth that you should grow your hair longer in the winter and only cut it short in the summer is not true. If you wear the proper winter clothing and neck protection like scarves, hoodies, and coats, then you have nothing to worry about comfort wise. With that said, why not reduce your morning routine with less hair to deal with?

You’ll want to complement the color that you choose with this cut, as it does attract additional attention. For red colors, a deep ruby red lipstick and rouge makeup can bring everything together. Even better, with our professional stylists, you can get the exact color and cut you want that will look great, even in the cold. People tend to wear less color during the winter, so you can stand out with a unique hair color that’s sure to turn heads.

Smooth Travels

One of the biggest challenges you will face in the winter is your hair drying out. The cold weather really does a number on hair. In addition, the dryness can make your hair brittle. Not only does this make it feel coarse, but it loses its shine.

This haircut can remedy all of that by giving you a smooth finish. Plus, it will shine longer than simply using a normal conditioner. Try going with a more natural look with your makeup. If it’s too colorful, it could overshadow your hair color or simply look tacky. “No makeup” looks are great for this, so go easy on the eyeshadow and contouring shadows. Our stylists can give you the smooth finish, beautiful makeup and big volume so you get the best of both worlds.

The Natural Blowout

Sometimes, for the holidays, it’s best just to enhance what you already have with your haircut and style! Our natural blowout can give your hair the soft dimension and natural hues that you love. It will shine and feel smooth while not detracting from the rest of your wardrobe. Versatility is the name of the game with this great cut. Plus, you can wear this style with anything else you have through each different holiday!

But at David’s Beautiful People, we are more than just a hair salon. We are a full beauty salon that can assist you with your makeup and overall look. Our friendly experts can consult you on whatever you need!

Champagne Pink and Platinum

The holidays are all about being festive, so why not celebrate with your hairstyle too? This platinum and pink combo combines classic girl power with modern aesthetics. Go with the short look and straightened locks, or simply change up the color. This style is especially fun for New Years, and gets you in the right spirit!

We recommend going with a natural color for foundation and spicing things up with bright lipstick. Additionally, you can add more dark contrast with your eyeliner and eyeshadow, since your hair will provide the light tones to balance it out.


Hair Cut and Style

Our talented and trained stylists all receive ongoing education each year. That way, they provide you with a cut and color that you know will look amazing and be precisely what you wanted! And if your hair length isn’t where you want it to be for your ideal style, no problem! We offer beautiful extensions that look completely natural as well.

Makeup Services

All of our makeup services are provided by a professional makeup artist who will work with you to create the perfect blend of products and colors for your facial features and hair. Your unique lifestyle, clothing, and hair style are important factors in determining what shades to use. And we can consult you on products that won’t harm your skin.

Perms and Relaxers

When you want to go from straight to curly, or curly to straight, we’ve got you covered. We offer a variety of perm and relaxing services so that your hair behaves just the way you want it to. This is perfect if you don’t have time to style your hair every morning yourself!
