New Year’s Eve can be a tricky one – the night where high expectations are usually met with feelings of disappointment because that girlfriend you’re out with, who broke up with her boyfriend before Christmas, has had a mental breakdown half way through the night at the anticipation of the impending strike of midnight, signifying her entry into a year of singledom and misery or, the more likely scenario, you’ve paid some outrageous amount of money to get into one of London’s oh-so-trendy, need-to-be-seen-in clubs and you spend three hours queuing to get a drink, only to find out that a cocktail there costs more than the dress you are wearing. New Year’s – the night where you are required to look inordinately sexy having inhaled Quality Street for a week (or if you’re anything like me, the entire month of December) can often be, well, a bit of let down to be quite honest but like many things in life, it is a time to grit your teeth, look gorgeous and bring in the New Year with all those hopes and dreams of career progression, Mr Right and a fitness plan to give you that Gwyneth Paltrow bod you’ve always wanted.
Well, here at Vixen and Blush we can’t help you with Mr Right (although we can suggest a little app called Tinder) and that Gwyneth Paltrow bod is also a little out of our expertise but we can assist with looking gorgeous on the night so here are a few suggestions for that NYE hair which will hopefully ensure that even if the night is a little below expectations, at least you’ll look gorgeous in all the photos!
The Ariana Grande/Cheryl half pony
Classic Curls a la Megan Fox
The Slick Back
Highlight your features by slicking those locks back behind the ears and making your face the main event.
If you’re going to a themed party or just fancy channeling old Hollywood for the night, make like the beautiful Jessica Chastain and go for side-swept retro waves.
AND MOST OF ALL…… HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
