3 Hairstyles For Your New Year’s Soirée
With the holidays behind us, the promise of a new year hangs in the air like the smell of the Christmas tree that will inevitably stay in the living room until the first week of February. With this in mind, it’s time to start thinking about how you’ll welcome in 2019, will it be with a loved one at home, or perhaps with a night out, clad in sequins and glitter? Either way, it’s important to look your best, so here are some classic styles that are fit to ring in the New Year, and make the first day of 2019 a good hair day.
Simple Looks For your new year's party
Create a heavy side part using a comb, then curl hair away from your face with a medium to large iron. Spray with a moderate hold hairspray, then use your fingers or a wide-toothed comb to rake through the curls and create a more relaxed wave. Finish with a shine spray like Bumble’s HIO Dry Oil Spray to make the waves glimmer.
Sleek & Modern
For something that feels more futuristic, try parting your hair down the middle and smoothing with a flat iron. Remember to use a heat protectant (like the HIO Primer), and to smooth any fly-aways with a light oil or hairspray.
If you’re looking for something more formal, try creating a low ponytail at the base of your head, slightly more to one side than the other. Separate the ponytail into two sections and twist one around the other, securing the whole thing with another elastic at the end of the ponytail. Next, twist the braid into a bun and use bobby pins to secure the look.
Pop open some bubbly and light some sparklers, your hair looks fantastic. Here’s to more good hair days in 2019!
