Whether you love or hate New Year’s Eve, there’s one thing we can all agree on: It gives us one great excuse to dress up and go all out with hair and makeup. If you’re looking for some hairstyle ideas that incorporate the works—glitter, jewels, and big volume—look no further than these It-girl-approved looks to ring in 2020 in style
New Year’s Eve
1. Put a Headband on it
The headband made its great return into our lives this year. Close it out by topping off your NYE look with one, like Maya Hawke’s embellished style.
2. Twisted Ponytail
Secure a high ponytail with a hair elastic like you normally would, brushing the sides for a sleek finish. Take a one-inch section, twist it around the elastic, pin underneath, and spray it to death for a style that will last long past midnight.
3. Pumped-Up Waves
Glam ’80s waves go with everything from a cocktail dress to a pantsuit, as Margot Robbie demonstrates. Go heavy on the mousse and choose a curling iron with at least a one-inch barrel.
4. Girl With The Pearl Hair
Take inspiration straight from the runway and dress up your hair with ornate pearl and beaded details. It’s a look everyone will remember well into 2020.
5. Sparkle and Shine
Glitter hair is the trend that was practically made for NYE. Brighten any room you walk into with some festive glitter hairspray.
6. Accessories Speak Louder Than Words
Wear what you’re feeling with these playful rhinestone pins from Kitsch and celebrity hairstylist Justine Marjan.
7. Bow It Out
Is there anything more romantic than a fanned out chignon tied with a velvet bow? We think not.
8. Wrap It Up
A silk scarf makes the perfect hair accessory and takes any updo to the next level.
9. Down The Middle
Hair jewelry elevates a style like no other. Liven up a middle part with some playful charms.
10. Bun Head
Sometimes the smallest details make the most impact. Weave in a chain or thin ribbon in your top bun for a unique spin on a classic style.
11. Turn Up The Volume
Big hair, don’t care is always a mood. Use a nourishing cream to ensure your voluminous blowout lasts all night.
12. Bantu Knots
13. Relaxed Updo
If you want to wear your hair up without looking too done up, have a few wavy layers fall in front of your face.
14. Party In The Back
A half updo is a great way to style a lob. Slick it back and tie it twice in the back for an unexpected twist.
15. Wavy Pony
A high ponytail makes for one of the best ways to look put together with next-to-no effort. For a more dressed up vibe, curl the ends in pretty waves.
