1. Modern chignon
Chignon is a bun that is placed at the nape of the neck. You can replace your regular mid buns for an updated version this party season.
If you’re looking to amp up your New Year hairstyle, then we suggest you add a modern touch to your cute chignon with the help of a silk scarf, scrunchie or a ribbon. Once you’ve secured your chignon in place, take a ribbon and tie it around the base of the chignon. Let the rest of the ribbon or hair tie fall loosely touching the nape of your neck. Leave out a few face-framing strands to give it an effortless look.
2. Tousled ponytail
Thank Alia Bhatt for showing us that a tousled ponytail can look absolutely drool-worthy if done right. And yes, it can perfectly complement your flashy party outfits.
If you’re bored of the regular ponytail and want to experiment with something OTT, then we suggest you style your hair into a tousled ponytail. This ponytail starts sleek and ends with loads of volume at the tail, making your hair look rough and dry. But, in fact, it’s the volume that’s doing the talking!
So, if you want your New Year hairstyle to have oodles of volume, then go for this Alia-approved hairstyle.
3. Sleek, wet look
This Kardashian-approved hairstyle can instantly up your glamour quotient. You can totally pull off this popular red-carpet hairstyle to a New Year’s party.
All you need is a brush, a gel and a holding spray to create the wet hair look. Oh, and don’t forget to work this look on damp hair.
If you want your New Year hairstyle to stand out, then the sleek, wet look can be your best bet.
4. Hair threads to the rescue
There’s nothing more comforting than a hairstyle which is absolutely locked inside a chic accessory. If you’re looking for a fuss-free hairdo to sport at a New Year’s party, then first, buy some colourful threads to use as hair accessories.
Let’s give credit to Sonam Kapoor Ahuja for setting this new hair trend.
Now, there are two ways in which you can style your hair using hair threads. Either go for a simple low bun and weave hair thread through the bun or opt for an edgier look like a sleek braided ponytail and wrap the braids entirely with hair threads.
The only thing that’s going to stand out here is the hair thread. So, if you want your New Year hairstyle to be comfy, glamorous and experimental, then hair threads can do the trick for you.
5. Twisted top knot
Top knots have been around for a while now. But, thanks to celebrities, they keep getting an upgrade from time to time.
While a regular, loose top knot can look super casual, you want something that is chic and elegant for a New Year’s party, don’t you? So, here’s what you can do to upgrade the good old top knot hairstyle.
Work on damp hair to make the top knot look really sleek and regal. Pull all your hair together into a high ponytail. Place the ponytail at the centre of your head to get the desired look. Then, twist your ponytail all the way up and roll it into a bun. Secure it with bobby pins.
If you want your New Year hairstyle to look classy and stylish, then a sleek twisted top knot can be your best bet.
6. Hippie hair
Here’s a millennial-esque way of wearing your ponytail on New Year’s Eve. If you have highlights in your hair, then this hairstyle is going to look even better.
All you need to do is tie your hair into a regular ponytail. Cover the hair tie by wrapping a strand of hair around the hair tie. Now, take tiny sections of hair from your tail and start braiding them in a regular three-strand braid. Add soft waves to the rest of your hair and let the baby braids blend in seamlessly.

7. Glossy vintage waves
If you’re a party animal, the one thing you want to make sure is to keep hair off your face while not sacrificing on the glamour quotient. So, how do you manage that? Fret not! We’ve got you the perfect solution! And no, you don’t have to step out for a New Year’s party with a boring hairstyle.
The best way to wear your hair down in a fuss-free manner is to opt for glossy vintage waves. When you give your tresses the right amount of tousle and shine, it’ll look fresh off-the-runway, just what your New Year hairstyle should look like. And, the best part about sporting glossy hair is that you don’t have to worry about flyaways. The slick-back effect is sure to keep it hassle-free all through the evening.
8. Low ponytail
Ponytails make for the most versatile hairdos. You can tweak them as per the occasion. Heading to the gym? Wear a simple high ponytail in your natural hair texture. Decking up for a party? Give pouf or textured ponytail a shot! Going to work? Pull your hair together into a sleek low ponytail. From desk to dinner, ponytails can be worn to just any occasion, hands down!
If you want to make your New Year hairstyle last way past midnight, then a sleek low ponytail can do the trick. Cover your hair tie by wrapping a strand of hair around it. Then, attach some chunky hair rings at the base of your ponytail to add more glamour to your otherwise simple hairstyle.
9. Twisted rope braid
When everything else fails, braids remain intact! We’re not asking you to wear your hair in a regular three-strand braid for a New Year’s party, instead, we suggest you try an upgraded version of a braid-style.
We’re talking about twisted rope braid! This super chic hairstyle is for all those with long hair. You don’t want your hair getting sticky with sweat as you dance the night away, do you? So, take cues from B-town beauties like Kareena Kapoor Khan and Sonakshi Sinha, and style your long tresses in a twisted rope braid.
Make your New Year hairstyle look all things sassy!
10. Messy textured ponytail
Here’s a celebrity-approved party hairstyle that’s got everyone hooked! It’s super simple and totally statement-worthy. We are talking about the textured ponytail.
This easy-to-create hairstyle is going to take you less than five minutes to ace. All you need to do is apply hair cream or gel such as the TIGI Bed Head Manipulator Styling before going in with the hairstyle. Pull all your hair together into a ponytail. Place the ponytail in the middle, neither too low nor too high. Then, with the help of a curling iron, add loose curls at the tail.
Lastly, tug at the hair on the centre of your head for added volume and lift.
If you want to keep your New Year hairstyle simple yet glamorous, then you should totally opt for a textured ponytail.
FAQs about Hairstyle:
Q. What are the best hairstyles for round faces?
A. Women with round faces can try a side bun with bangs, glossy vintage waves or a sleek, wet look. Avoid tighter hairstyles such as a ponytail or top-knot because when all your hair is pulled back together and away from your face, it will accentuate the roundness.
Q. What are the best hairstyles for oval faces?
A. For oval faces, you can try a funky pompadour, twisted rope braid or a modern chignon. While oval faces can easily pull off any hairstyle, it’s best you go for layers near your cheekbones, lips or chin.
Q. What are the best hairstyles for long faces?
A. If you have a long face, you could consider side-swept bangs, a tousled ponytail or a wavy hairstyle. The key is to opt for a hairstyle that covers your forehead in order to reduce the length of your face.
Q. What are some of the essential hair products you need to keep a party hairstyle intact?
A. Before going in with a hairstyle, make sure to apply a hair gel or cream to smoothen out your hair and make it tangle-free. Don’t forget to use a heat-protectant spray if you’re going to use your curler or flat iron. And lastly, finish off by spritzing some hairspray so that your hairstyle remains in place all night long.
