We’re in the last days of 2014 and that means the countdown to NYE is on. Whether you’re rocking a brand new dress or your standby LBD, what you need is a fabulous hairstyle (and shoes). Check out this easy New Year’s Eve hairstyle that you can style at home, leaving more money for champagne!
What’s going to happen to braided hairstyles next year? We’ll probably see a burst of creative new looks before this trend begins to wane. Until then, plait away! Like all updos, this will be easier to style second day hair that some more grip to it. Alternatively, use a texturizing product on clean hair.
Part dry hair on one side and grab a chunk of hair between the hairline and temple. French braid the hair until you reach the back of your head and then braid it normally to the end. If your DIY French braid isn’t good enough, a regular braid on top of hair will look good too.
Now gather hair into a low-ish ponytail, leaving some volume at the crown, and secure it with a hair tie. Grab the braid and wrap it around the hair elastic and tuck the end into the elastic or bobby pin it. If you want, add a curl or two to the ponytail to boost volume.
That’s it! You’re ready to ring in 2015 in style and can feel confident dancing the night away. This easy party hairstyle works with any outfit, no matter how fancy. Enjoy and happy new year.
