With New Year’s Eve just around the corner, it can be a bit of a hassle trying to come up with a fitting hairstyle to wear on that day, especially if you are going to be out and about, having fun, and taking lots and lots of pictures. Speaking of which, you want your selfies to reflect the perfect hairstyle, and a messy, bland, or hurriedly put-together one won’t cut it. Because let’s keep it real: your face game in pictures is only on point if you have the right hairstyle to match. If you are that girl –we’ve said this before, but we wholeheartedly mean it–we’ve got you.
We have taken the time to compile the perfect list of NYE hairstyles that will take your selfie game to a whole new level. Whether your hair is long, medium, short, kinky, or curly, today’s article contains hairstyles that match each texture and length. If you’re ready to begin, then dive right in!
1. HALF TWISTS, HALF TWIST OUT
We kickstart this list with the half up, half down, half twists, half twist out hairstyle (whoo! That was quite a lot of halves, lol). The inclusion of gold accessories helps to add shine and shimmer to the look.
2. PUFF WITH THE SWOOP
With the front part of the hair brushed down in a swoop across the forehead, this holiday hairstyle is a switch from the regular look. You can further apply a temporary hair color to liven up the look.
3. PEARL HAIRBAND ON SHORT CURLS
For this NYE, you might need a simple pearl white hairband to take your short curls look from gorgeous to extremely gorgeous.
4. TRIBAL BUBBLE BRAIDS
This particular hairstyle is a worthy New Year’s Eve one because of its unique appearance and how it perfectly frames the face. The ends of the tribal braids are puffed into bubble braids with little white rubber bands helping to brighten the look, while the back of the hair is left in a mass of curly glory.
5. MIDDLE PART HAIRDO WITH SINGLE BRAIDS
The front part of this hairstyle is nicely laid down to perfection, with two single braids starting from the crown of the head and falling to the shoulders to meet the rest of the hair falling in soft curls.
6. WASH ‘N’ GO
Wash and go for New Year’s Eve is easily one of the hairstyles you can wear. What’s more, you can further amplify this simple look by creating an invisible middle part to give it a nice heart-shaped Afro.
9. HIGH BUN WITH CURLY BANGS
Instead of removing your old rod set or any old curls hairstyle, you can simply repurpose it to a high bun hairstyle with curls that topple softly on your head.
This hairstyle performs a 2-in-1 function. Number one, it lets you get an accurate length check of your hair (especially if your hair experiences shrinkage), and number two, it is a lovely hairstyle to wear for a holiday.
9. FLAT TWISTED SLICKED BUN
Slicked buns are such an elegant hairstyle for all occasions. A flat twist neatly running from the front of the hair all the way to the back and tied into the bun adds flair to the hairstyle.
10. PUFF BUNS WITH TWISTS
This hairstyle is characterized by large puffs created in the middle of the hair and neatly tucked in. It also features side twists and front twists adorned with beads.
11. SPIKY CUT
For the grey-haired older lady or, frankly, lady of any age who just wants to try something a little bit bolder on her short hair for NYE, the spiky cut is the perfect go-to hairstyle.
12. CLAW CLIP HAIRSTYLE
A claw clip is one hair accessory you can count on to stylishly keep your curls firmly held together.
