Slicked Back

Super straight slicked back locks are a must if you’re after a modern, statement look. Emanating attitude and heaps of sass, poker straight slicked back hair is a style that will speak volumes at New Year’s. Long hair or short, you can bring this flawless ‘do to life quickly and easily.

Sleek Chignon

Wavy Pony

Cool, breezy and ethereal, wavy hair paired with an easy updo is a match made in heaven. Create gorgeous soft waves in your locks and pull them up into a pony for a look that’s simple to create, but will tick all the party hairstyle boxes. Soften the look for a little extra romance with a few loosely waved tendrils around the face for a style that is sure to wow.
