Will your dress or your top be sequined? Are the sequins flat or are they textured? They’ll be in contact with your hair if you wear certain styles, so you want to think about all of those things. It’s not an incredibly huge deal, but you want the night to be as seamless as possible so that you get to enjoy the festivities without worrying about things like hair and wardrobe.
Speaking of wardrobe, your hair should match your outfit. Not match in terms of color, necessarily, but you do want the look to flow well together. Hair and clothes that compliment each other will make you feel your best. When you feel your best, your night is sure to go well.
As unfortunate as it may seem, some people actually have to be up and functioning the day after the celebration that is New Year’s Eve. It seems so unfair, but it’s a reality that has to be considered. If you have to be at work or an event, or maybe just presentable enough for breakfast with your mother-in-law, consider that when deciding on what to do with your hair.
A style that is easy to preserve overnight is going to be your best choice. If you can wrap your hair and call it a night, that is probably the style you should go for. Especially considering that you may have a few drinks. What you don’t want, is to wake up to a bird’s nest that requires two hours of attention to make look decent, after a long night of partying.
The early bird
Once you have settled on a hairstyle, make your appointment as soon as you can. If you have to get in to your stylist’s chair in order to pull of the look you’re going for, you want to ensure your spot. Scrambling around trying to come up with an alternate plan for your hair the night of, is not a good look.
A backup plan shouldn’t be what happens by default. The smart thing to do, would be to come up with an alternate hairstyle that you are ok with before you find yourself in panic mode. Knowing what style you have tucked in your back pocket will just put your mind at ease. The alternate style should be something you’re able to pull off alone. If it comes down to using it, you probably won’t have access to your stylist at the last minute.
Don’t forget to plan out your hair as you’re planning out everything else about New Year’s Eve. A beautiful hairstyle will be the icing on the cake.
