GET READY TO RING IN THE NEW YEAR (MILEY CYRUS + FKA TWIGS + EMMY ROSSUM)
We have mentioned the New Year in the last couple blog posts so it’s only right that we dedicate an entirely separate post to your NYE look. Whether you’re going to spend the night out on the town waiting for the ball to drop or staying in celebrating with friends, you’ll have an excuse to get fancy and try out these looks. Let’s touch on a few styles that are full of glam and sure to ring in your new year with a bang.
This first look is fully glam, I mean really glam. Full of glitter this style is sure to be the talk of any room you walk into. Glitter roots or the glitter part are the perfect way to add glitz to a more plain outfit or just take your look over the top. Also, didn’t have time to get a root touch up before NYE? Throw some glitter on it, no one will notice a thing. This look can be worn with your hair down, seen on Miley Cyrus in the photo below. Or in between braids, pigtails, or a slicked back bun or ponytail. All you need is loose glitter and some hair gel. Use a comb, tint brush, or just your fingers to apply the gel wherever you’ll want the glitter. Then lightly dust the glitter over the area for instant pizzazz.

Disco buns, space buns, double topknot, whatever you want to call this hair style, it’s quick, easy, and fun. This hair style is essentially just two topknots placed on your head strategically spaced apart with a center parting down the middle. You can either gather all of your hair up into the buns or do a half up half down style with two small buns at the top of your head with the rest left down. The best part about this look is there is no styling necessary, take your hair in it’s most natural state, clean or dirty and use a boar bristle brush and use it to smooth all of your hair back. If fly aways are a problem for you don’t fret, a little gel or serum on your fingers or a comb will take care of them easily.

If you want an even simpler solution on how to get NYE ready with little to no effort look no further, I’ve got the solution for you. Hair accessories are the quickest and chicest way to pull a look together. Simply throw your hair in a low bun or messy pony and add a hair accessory. There are endless options, from bejeweled headbands to a vintage inspired pin or barrette and even faux flowers. The best thing about hair accessories is that you can match them to the look you are going for. If you’re party is time period themed this is a perfect way to elevate your look. For a retro 50’s look add a pearl barrette to a pin curled do. A 70’s look would be spot on paired with a headband and some Farrah Fawcett waves.
