Put a Bow On It!

One of the quickest DIY hairstyles, this messy ponytail with a big bow perfectly combines elegance with party-girl fun. It’s low maintenance, helps keep the hair out of your face and still gives you something extra to add to your hair. Here is how you can achieve this look.

  • Start with a texturizing spray like a sea salt spray to add waves or volume to your hair.
  • If you want more waves, use a curling wand to add loose waves around the bulk of your hair. 
  • Add some hair spray or a light mousse to seal in the texture, but not weigh it down.
  • Take a clear elastic band and tie your hair in a low ponytail, ensuring it is not too tight. 
  • Secure the bow around your elastic using bobby pins or the elastic that comes attached to the bow. 
  • End by making the ponytail loose and pulling out a few strands from the front to make it look messy. Ensure not to pull out too much hair, which may make it look unkempt. 

Pair this DIY hairstyle with a LBD, some high heels and a perfect red lip for your skin tone, and you are all set to dance the night away. 

Diamond In The Sky: Sparkly Pins 

New Year’s Eve is the chance to add sparkle to your look and upgrade it classically. A simple row of sparkly hair pins can elevate the simplest hair look and make it stand out. The way to make it stand out is by pairing it with poker-straight hair. Here is how you can dazzle with this DIY hairstyle. 

  • Take small sections of your hair and straighten them to be very straight. Make sure to apply a generous amount of heat protectant before you do this, as it may cause damage to your strands. 
  • Once your hair is straightened, add a light oil to give it some shine and make it look lustrous and healthy. 
  • Add sparkly bobby pins to the hair on one side or both if you’re feeling adventurous. Wearing a pair of pins instead of one is best, as it adds just the right amount of sparkle. 

The ideal pair for this outfit is a pair of silk pajamas, but you can upgrade and pair it with a pink silk dress or a silk co-ord set for your night on the town. Or match your outfit with your hair accessories and go sparkly all the way!

Retro Chic: 90’s Blow-Out And Tinsel

This year’s most popular haircut has been layered with bangs, and following through with that trend, the best DIY hairstyle for your NYE is a 90’s blowout with all the movement and dimension you could imagine with some shine. 

  • After washing your hair, use a light mousse or volumizing product. 
  • Diffuse your hair if it is curly or wavy till 2/3rd of the way dry. 
  • Get a blow dryer and a brush, or simply a hot air brush, and start to section your hair. 
  • Gently move through the hair sections while ensuring that you are combing and drying in an outward direction. You may need some assistance if this is your first time. 
  • After you have completed going through all your hair, pick up the front pieces and blow dry them upwards to give them more volume. 
  • Turn your head over and tousle the hair to add a fuller look. Then, pick up a piece of tinsel.
