With the end of 2017 fast approaching, no doubt your New Year plans are already well underway. Whether you’re heading to Origin Festival, hitting Marquee, or opting for a formal sit-down affair, an elegant updo is the perfect way to welcome the New Year with style (and without worrying about Perth’s summer heat!). At Kinks, we want you to welcome 2018 in the best way possible - with great hair! Here are five gorgeous updos that will get you red-carpet ready for the big celebrations.

Sleek and stylish

Sleek hairstyles have been all the rage in 2017, so why not celebrate this gorgeous trend with a super-sleek ponytail for your end of year celebrations. This simple do can be worn both high or low, and is the perfect New Year’s hairstyle for ladies with longer locks. Style the look up with a simple gold accessory, or wrap your hair around the ponytail itself for an elegant do that requires minimal effort.

Braided bun

If you really want to dress to impress, opting for a braided updo is the perfect way to incorporate an extra element of texture and style into your New Year's hair. Upgrade a basic bun with a simple side braid or go all out with a bun that incorporates the braid itself.

The “messy” bun

If you plan on partying until the early hours of the morning, an elegant messy bun may be just the hairstyle you need to keep your luscious locks on point as you enter 2018. This adaptable hairstyle is not only great for combatting the summer heat, it also won’t matter if the odd lock falls lose as you hit the dance floor…it’s all part of that tousled look!

Low twisted chignon

For those attending a more formal affair this New Year, you can’t get more elegant than a low twisted chignon. This simple New Year’s hairstyle can be paired with drop earrings and a gorgeous gown for a look that’s truly red-carpet worthy.
