Whether you’re hitting the town, watching fireworks display, or it’s a relaxed family one at home – New Years eve is a great excuse for a selfie-perfect festive hairstyle. Looking back on this year’s hot trends and what’s most likely going to be big news in 2017, I’ve created these quick and easy, perfect for any occasion hairstyles. Keep scrolling down for step by steps!


As usual, I’m dedicating a whole section on this as getting the right hair texture right is the key part of any style in this tutorial. My ultimate go-to hero tool is ghd Platinum styler (here I’m using limited edition Copper Luxe, but there are also a classic ones that come in black or white).

For the hair prep I’ve used a combination of ghd Root Lift Spray on the roots to create volume and lift and Heat Protect on lengths and ends for added thermal protection. Remember, it’s never too much prep! If you feel that hair is too damp to style then simply blow dry the product in.


This hairstyle is all about the detailed, fluffy fishtail (aka mermaid) braid. It adds elegance and statement to any waves and is so easy to create! I’ve gone for cater parting and two braids, creating symmetry and perfection whilst achieving this relaxed party look.


This red carpet approved, Cara Delevigne inspired style is the hot news this season. There is no need to be a cornrow braids specialist – all you need to do it simply braid the side sections and connect them together with a bobby pin – voila! Wear it wavy or straight – it works both ways.


If you are loving the chignon look then this effortless twisted low up-do is the one to try! The top secret to this look is clever sectioning. Start by dividing hair in front two sections (to be clipped away) and then work on the back part by creating undone ponytails, twisted into a messy bun. Use hairspray to keep the style in place and connect the front side sections at the end. Secure the look with embellishment for a glitzy glam party statement!


This Prada-inspired statement top knot is the big news this year. Simply bring all the hair up in a ponytail (textured or sleek), divide it into two sections and then knot a few times. The longer the hair, the more knots and texture you can add!
