Glamorous hair styling ideas for your New Year celebrations

New Year’s Eve is almost upon us, and you’re all set on celebrating in style. You’ve got the show stopping party outfit sorted, but best of all you’ve had your amazing new hair extensions fitted. Now everything hangs on how you decide to style them.

In preparation for your memorable New Year celebrations, we've curated a collection of inspiring hair styling ideas to ensure that your beautiful new hair extensions are showcased in nothing less than a truly stunning fashion.

Slicked Back Ponytail

This one could be just right for you if you want to look both trendy and classy. A silky, sleek ponytail has quickly become a classic look that you can easily recreate. This is one of those style that can be worn on just about any occasion. Better yet, it goes well with any outfit and can be curled or flipped out according to the vibe you’re looking to achieve.

Volumised Tousled Ponytail.

The high tousled ponytail style provides a stylish and daring look. And on New Year’s Eve, should your tousled ponytail become even more artfully tousled as the night unfolds, consider it part of the charm. To achieve this look, begin by applying volumizing mousse and blow-drying your hair. Next, tease the hair at the crown and gather it into a high ponytail, securing it with a hair tie. Ensure a few playful tendrils escape, adding to the deliberately undone aesthetic.

Half Up, Half Down Hollywood look.

Romantic yet practical, you can play with this hairstyle to create the look you want. Start by wetting the hair with a volumising mousse and dry with a hairdryer, then use a large-barrel curling iron to create waves throughout your hair. Section off the top layer of your hair and pull up in a half-ponytail at the back of your crown, letting your bangs frame your face.

Crown Braid

You can wear this tight, or messy and boho. Either way you’ll look like a goddess. First, part your hair in the middle and separate it into two sections. Split each section into three strands and braid each section. Pull one of the braids from left to right, over top of your head to rest a few inches from your forehead. Secure this braid with a pin, then pull the other braid from right to left, pushing it up against the previous braid. Secure this braid with a pin as well. You now have a hairstyle that should look like a ‘crown’.   

The Loose Curls

Soft, loose curls are a simple but truly stunning look. To create them, apply a strong setting lotion or mouse to damp hair and set in heated rollers, working around the face from crown to nape. Dry completely and remove the rollers, then brush through to remove any roller marks. Use a wide-toothed comb to form and push in the waves in the direction the hair has been set. A spritz of hairspray, and your loose curls should see you through into New Year’s morning. 

Sleekly Straight and Shiny.

Sleek and shiny has become a fave look among A-listers and will definitely put a gloss on your New Year’s Eve celebrations – even if you’re planning to celebrate at home! It’s easy to recreate. Wash your hair, dry it thoroughly and apply a heat protective spray or serum to decrease the risk of damage before straightening with a flat brush or flat iron, ensuring the heat temperature is well-monitored. The final touch is to apply a small amount of shine product to your straightened locks to complete the look. 

Add accessories?  

Half the fun of New Year’s Eve hair is in the glam way you can accessorise.

This is one time you can feel totally free to do your own thing with hair rings, tinsel, statement clips, beautiful bows and flashing headbands, glittery claw clips, bejewelled slides or twinkling stars. Whatever, just go for it!
