New Years Eve Updo

This New Years Eve hairstyle is actually from last year. I love it so much that I had to post it again!

A fancy schmancy updo for a special occasion. Maybe a New Years party, or even a flower girl hairstyle! She actually wanted a princessy type hairdo to go with her cute new Christmas dress.

christmas dress Make the parts first. We did one section in the front for her "bangs." One across the back going from ear to ear. And four diagonal sections going from the front to the back part. Put each section in a temporary ponytail to keep everything separated.

Slick down the bangs and secure them above her ear with a clear elastic. Then, do some kind of a french braid in each of the four diagonal sections. We did french twist braids. If you don't know how to do that, we have a video tutorial at the bottom of this post.Place the finished braids up out of the way and pull the remaining hair into a ponytail. I did an upside down pull through in the ponytail to add a little volume.Next, gather all the braids directly underneath the ponytail and secure with an elastic. (You should now have 2 ponytails on top of each other.)Curl all the hair in the 2 ponytails.Now, to make the ponytail a little fancier: There is no exactness to this part. Just grab little sections of hair and sort of loop them around and secure them to her head with either bobby pins or little claw clips like this......Do as many sections as you want to. I think we ended up using five clips total.new years eve hairstyle All done!

  17. Last year I saw this style and fell in love with it! Problem is, I didn't have a little girl to do it on. Until I was helping prepare some princesses for a piano recital. Fortunately my little charge liked it as much as I did. It turned out really nice...I think my friend has the picture on her camera.

    Then, I had a little sister for two months (we're a foster family). Some of the styles here proved invaluable (especially the twist tutorials) since she had a weird haircut we we trying to grow out.

    I lost my bookmarks when my computer crashed and just rediscovered your website!

    Just thought I should comment since I have been lurking so long!
