Curl all your hair in the same direction. holding your curling iron vertically
Mist each section as you go with Non Aerosol Hairspray
Allow the curls to cool off for 5 minutes then gently brush them through to create the wave pattern
Section off the waves around the face and side twist them upwards and backward into the center of your head
Now secure the updo section in place with bobby pins
We’re recommending our Non Aerosol Hairspray to fifth the frizz and prevent any build-up of static. The only thing that needs to be electric on NYE is your personality dah-ing. Not your hair!

Such a classic and demure look. Perfect if you’re hosting a sophisticated stay at home dinner party and need to be the hostess with the mostess. A braided chignon will never go out of style. Go one further this year and be the talk of the top table by weaving in a scarf into your style to add a touch of extra glamour and intrigue. Leave a few sexy and subtle pieces out to frame your festive face and secure the elegant undo with bobby pins. A delicate spritz of Sugar Texturizing Spray and those tousled tresses framing your pretty face will see you through to 2020.
4. The Sleek Wet Look
This one screams glamour. It has to be one of the most loved styles of 2019, so it is a fitting, sensational send off to the year. It’s super easy to recreate. You just need a brush, N4’s Firm Hold Gel to slick in place and a sheer hold hairspray to complete the look. We recommend you go for N4’s Non Aerosol Hairspray mini and stash it close by in case you need a little touch up later in the night.
5. Big Bow Pony
How about a seasonal favorite, the Big Bow Pony? This one is wonderfully low-maintenance and super quick and easy to style, meaning more time to spend enjoying those celebratory cocktails. A giant bow definitely gets our vote and if you go for a velvet, satin, or sequin version in black, it will look chic, sophisticated, but also kinda cute. A messy low tied ponytail is perfect for swishing around on the dance floor and you won’t have to fight the frizz as it’s perfectly pinned back from your face. Just don’t forget your NYE handbag essential, N4’s Mini Mighty Hair Spray, for on the spot touch up’s.
