1. Crimped Hair

Crimped hair is totally going to be a trend in 2017 so you might as well start on NYE! To get this perfectly crimped ponytail, dust off your old crimper or create fake crimped hair with braids. If you do go for the crimper hot tool, make sure you prep your hair first with a heat protectant, like the TRESemmé Platinum Strength Heat Spray, that’ll work to guard your hair from heat, frizz and dryness.

2. Braided Ponytail

This braided hairstyle is the epitome of 2016 super cool hair. It also incorporates a long, low ponytail which we’re expecting to see much more of in 2017. To try out this hair idea for NYE, braid a long section of your hair and wrap it around your crown like a headband. Secure it to the nape of your neck and tie the rest of your hair into a ponytail.

If you can’t wear a bow bun on December 31st when can you? We love this hair styled super sleek and it also looks really awesome with box braids. To get the sleek look, start with wet hair and apply the S Factor by TIGI Silky Smooth Serum and blow-dry straight. Then, follow our bow bun tutorial to help you easily recreate this fun look!

5. Voluminous Top Knot

We still love the look of a classic top knot. This style is classy but still super fun so you won’t feel stuffy on the big night. To create this topknot you can just loop your thick hair into a big bun. If your hair is on the thin side, use a hair doughnut to help create more volume in your bun. You can dance the night away without a hair falling out of place.

6. Pinned Up Ponytail

Do you want to go to your New Year’s Eve party wearing a style that is super easy but also crazy cool? Go for this pinned up ponytail. Start off with pin straight hair for a super graphic style. Then pull all of your hair into a high ponytail. The last step is to take that tail and use several bobby pins to pin it down. You’ll get a super edgy look in literally just minutes. Just be sure to set your style with the Dove Style+Care Strength And Shine Flexible Hold Hairspray for a shiny finish.
