When it comes to New Year’s Eve, romance is definitely on the cards. Sweep your hair up into a gorgeous updo for a perfectly imperfect romantic updo. Bring it to the nape of your neck for added elegance and let soft strands frame your face. Don’t worry about being too pristine, a few flyaways will create a dreamy look, giving you enviable style as the clock counts down to midnight.

Tip: Give your hair some subtle sparkle with a bejewelled headband. Sit it just above your twisted pony to give your hair that enviable statement look.
