Hairstyles for Chinese New Year
1. Double buns
Looking for a fun hairstyle to celebrate the Year of the Pig? Look no further than this traditional niújiǎotóu double bun style.
2. Scarf bun
Reach for your favourite scarf and turn your hair into your best accessory with this chic scarf bun.
Silk scarves (especially red variations) will give your look an elegant touch that will be perfect for any festivity while respecting tradition.
Editor’s tip: Give your scarf bun a high gloss frizz-free finish with TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops. Work 2-3 pumps between fingers and smooth through lengths of dry, styled hair avoiding the roots.
3. Classic side braid
4. Sleek bob
If you have short hair and not sure how to give it a style update, why not take a cue from this fashionista and opt for a sleek bob with a soft quiff accent.
Use a little hair gel to get the wet look, or hair mousse to get a matte finish.
Editor’s tip: For ultimate hold and all day frizz control we love VO5 Mega Hold Gel Spray. We recommend using on towel dried hair, spraying short, even bursts & working the product through your hair with your fingertips. For even more hold, spray all over your style when finished.
Elegant styles like the chignon are always a top choice for special occasions. The timeless look can be worn in a multitude of ways, find your pick!
