Are you ready for the New Year?
New Year’s Eve always seems to creep up on me. It could be that I’m still in a cookie and sugar coma from the endless Christmas treats, but this year I want to be ready with hairstyles and looks to chose from. Read on to find a look that you would love to wear when ringing in the New Year!
Ah the pouf, with too much tease you could end up looking like a Jersey Shore cast member. Yet with the right amount of teasing, hairspray and shaping, you will have a flirty, vintage look much like icon Brigitte Bardot.
To achieve this look, start by either straightening or lightly curling your hair. Then take the strands of your hair from the crown of your head and begin to tease in sections. To take a bit of the ease off of your hair, try pinning a rolled sock or piece of fabric and place teased hair over the bump. It sounds crazy but trust me, combing out a ton of tease is never fun. Lastly secure your pouf with bobby-pins or a fun clip.
To keep with the 1960’s theme, try this fun mint green frock from Modcloth. The unexpected color combined with the peter pan collar, gold buttons and ruffles, will pair perfectly with black and gold accessories.
Those looking for a sleek and classic look, try a high fashion bun. This hairstyle is on the simpler side, which allows you to go a bit bolder with your ensemble and accessories.
To achieve this look, I comb all of my hair back into a very sleek high pony tail. Then tease the ponytail to add volume, if your hair is on the shorter side like mine. Using bobby-pins twist your hair around your head and use the pins to secure it down. Make sure to spray your hair to keep any flyaway strands at bay!
Feathers have been a runway staple for almost two years now, and when paired with the right accessories will create a statement making look, without looking like a bird. This dress gives the idea of feathers through sequined embellishments, and would look great with gold and black shoes, bracelets and a clutch.
For those of you with shorter hair, or those looking to shake up their looks for the new year, look no further than a sleek bob. Katie Holmes rocked this hairstyle a few years ago and the look is a fun throw back look. I love how she paired the angular bob with slightly shaggy bangs for an extra edge.
Red pieces were featured in many runway collections this season, for good reason. The hue will draw every eye to you, as you enter any restaurant or party this New Year’s Eve! This dress from Modcloth has a conservative cut, and a soft fabric with a bow accent.
If I could trade my hair for any celebrities, one of my first picks would be Blake Lively’s long blonde locks. While I lack the complexion of a blonde, Blake’s hair is always stunning like this embellished ponytail.
To achieve this look, pull your hair into a half poiny tail. Using a curling iron, curl hair and pin to your head, like you are waiting for the curls to set. Then gather the rest of your hair into a pony tail.
Nothing says New Years quite like glitter, and this sequined dress will certainly get you noticed! To keep with a nuetral palette, stick with nude colored shoes to make your legs appear longer and add gold or dark brown jewelry. I love the hot mess necklace, such a spunky message for a classic heart piece.
