We’ve taken a look back at our favourite hair trends from the most glamorous night of the year – New Years Eve. From understated low bun’s to adventurous glitter parting’s – there’s something for everyone in our top 5 hair trends to trial this New Year’s Eve!

Classic Hollywood waves

This signature look is perfect for a night of cocktails, canapes and most of all glitz and glamour! To achieve this look, section the hair and use a waving wand styler (or improvise with a regular curling tong) on 2 inch sections of hair. Hair spray each layer at a time, repeating this technique throughout each layer of hair. Once complete, lightly brush through with a paddle brush and set with hairspray. For added glamour, add a spritz of shine spray and you’re ready to knock em dead.

For this look, we recommend:

  • Cloud 9 waving wand £119.95
  • Hairspray Alterna anti humidity spray £18.00

The low bun

The effortless low bun is perfect for every occasion, especially if your outfit has a low back or lots of embellishment! Perfect the textured look with salt spray, get the curby grips at the ready for the bun itself and take centre stage at any occasion. Looking for a bit more sparkle? This look works perfectly with hair chains or glitter partings too!

For this look, we recommend:

  • Salt spray Osis session salt spray £12.95

Hair chains and accessories

Take an ordinary hairstyle and make it extraordinary! Hair chains are everywhere right now, and they’re perfect for dressing up those low maintenance go-to do’s. Rock a centre parting with a parting chain, or add to this season’s classic low bun for a Gatsby inspired look to wow everyone this year.
