Updo vs. Loose

New Year's Eve is one of the biggest nights of the year and, as such, the grand occassion deserves a special look. Each year, we're always faced with the same dilemma : an elaborate updo or party-ready loose locks... what do you think ?

Updo

The look

Chignon, mermaid braid, high ponytail : there are so many possibilities to help us shine during the festive season ! Updos offer an excellent opportunity to accessorize with headbands, clips or hair jewels for a bold holiday look.

The style

Classic with a chignon, romantic with a braid, or modern with a graphic high ponytail- there's always an updo to match the style of your ensemble. We suggest choosing the outfit first and then matching your ensemble with complementary hair and makeup.

Our tips

Choosing a style you love is important, but make sure it suits your NewYear's Eve activity : whether it's a never-ending family dinner or a night on the dance floor, you can get through anything with a gorgeous hairstyle !

Loose

The look

Straight or wavy, loose hair is always beautiful and stylish ! Shiny, full of body and natural movement- what more could you want ? If you're looking for a way to add more sophistication to this look, opt for a jewelled headband !

The style

Whether they're mid-length, long or very long, wavy, curly, or super sleek, loose locks are a way to keep your look natural and relaxed. You never risk looking over the top with this carefree style, but that doesn't mean you won't have all eyes on you !

Our tips

Finally, it might just be those with short hair who have it easiest over the holiday season ! With just a simple hair accessory, they manage to have a hairstyle that balances the appeal of an updo without any need for heat styling, pins or hairspray ! So, what if we opt for the pixie this holiday season ... ?
