    Starting right behind the ear, take a zigzag parting on a diagonal up toward the crown on each side of the head and secure the top section into a topknot with bobby pins.

     

    Note: Maggie says a zigzag part will help to prevent harsh straight lines between each section.

    Continue this same technique down the head until you have four buns, then carefully pull at the front section so the overall style looks softer.

    Then, strategically insert the holiday embellishment of your choice and secure with pins. For this style, Maggie took a long stem of holly and wrapped it around each of the knots.

     

    Pro Tip: Want to extend the life of this holiday look so she can rock it any time of year? Opt to incorporate florals or ribbons instead!
