New Year’s Eve is a week from today (yes, let that sink in). Whether you’re hosting friends over for dinner or have plans to dance the night away, you’ve got to be looking your best.

You need a stunning dress, gorgeous makeup look to go with it and a hairstyle that lasts throughout the night. Obviously then, you’d trust your everyday hairstyle which you’re a pro at pulling off. But wait, you cannot go with a basic and boring hairstyle for an NYE party. No way!

However, what you can do is glam up your usual hairstyle with some fun hair accessories. Yep. You can turn your basic bun, braid and ponytail into a glamourous do in a tick. How? Let us show you.  

 

Buns n’ barrettes

Pulling off your everyday bun to the New Year’s Eve party? Don’t forget to dress it up with some statement barrettes. Buns can really look blah if you don’t adorn it with some barrettes and shine-boosting hairspray. Add some dainty barrettes to your bun and you’ve got yourself a stunning, and show-stopping, updo.

 

Braids in threads

Make your braids party-ready by adding some threads while weaving your hair or wrap it around your braid to keep it from looking boring. Use coloured threads if you’re going for a boho-chic look or use a single colour to match it with your dress for an eye-catching hairstyle.

 

Glitter ponytail

What better occasion than NYE to rock the hottest (and slightly OTT) hair trend of the season? Your ponytail won’t normally have swipes of glitter in it, but at a New Year’s party, it is more than acceptable. Make a low ponytail like you usually do and glam it up by dusting some makeup glitter on and around the base. Turn heads with the glitter ponytail this NYE.

 

Half up with a bow

The half up half down is undoubtedly a classic party hairstyle. But we hope you’re not planning to go with your every day (read: boring) half-up hairdo. Here’s what you can do instead. Tie your half-up in a satin bow to add a fun element to your look. It’s chic, trendy and looks oh-so-adorable.

 

Pinned, side-swept

If buns and braids aren’t your thing and you’d rather style your hair in soft curls or straighten and let them loose, you can try this hairstyle. Add a touch of glam to your otherwise casual hairstyle by stacking a bunch of hairpins on one side of your hair. For extra oomph, match the clips with your party dress.
