Holidays and hairdo’s. Hair for Christmas and the times during the holiday season spent with family and friends is a lot different than New Year’s Eve hair. Sitting around with family, watching football, doing the JuJu on that beat challenge and lounging isn’t the environment for you to be worried about whether your contour is perfect, or if your curls are still intact.
The celebratory vibe that comes with New Year’s Eve calls for a more glammed up look. Glamming up isn’t restricted to just makeup. You’ll want your hair to be just as glamorous for the occasion.
Deciding on what type of hairstyle you’ll rock for the big night will depend on several factors. It’s one more thing to think about on top of all that’s already going on, but if you slack and neglect to address it, you may find yourself even more stressed on the big night. Avoid any added dilemmas by taking a little time to figure out how to style your hair for New Year’s Eve early.
The hair style you ultimately choose will need to work well with everything else. This will mean choosing a style after you have all the other major parts of the night set. Being glammed up is key, but you also want to be practical. You don’t want to be that girl who can’t take pictures when the clock strikes midnight, because your hair has turned into a giant mess on top of your head.
What to consider
You always want to think about where you will spend the major part of your night. Will you be attending an outdoor event? If so, will it be windy, freezing cold, or perhaps raining? If you are lucky enough to live down south, things like weather may play less of a part when it comes to this part of the process.
Having to wear a large winter coat to keep warm may mean that you don’t wear your hair down because it will be rubbing up against a thick collar all night and will end up in a ball of knotted hair on the back of your neck.
Likewise, rainy or moist weather would eliminate the option of wearing a super sleek hairstyle that will end up looking frizzy and messy. If you plan on dancing the night away, you won’t want a delicate updo that might fall when you drop it like it’s hot.
