NEED TO KNOW: 5 Ways To Prep Your Hair for NYE

Party Hair Prep Towel

2016 is just around the corner, and that means New Years Eve party planning has officially begun! New Years is your chance to start the year off with a bang, and the best way to make a good first impression is with show stopping hair. That’s where we come in! We’re listing off the best ways to prep your mane for midnight. 


The first step in party ready hair is a healthy foundation! Healthy hair is gorgeous hair, and the best way to get your locks in good shape is with a conditioning treatment. For bleached and damaged hair we love the Olaplex no. 3 Hair Perfector, for normal to dry hair try something a little lighter like the Kevin Murphy BORN.AGAIN.MASQUE. Read our Damage Remedies more a more detailed guide.



We’re guessing your NYE glam doesn’t include a head full of split ends. And if you pushed back your usual chop to splurge on friends and family for the holidays, you probably need that trim more than usual. Cutting your locks is the best way to ensure a perfect, healthy style on the special night, just be sure to schedule your haircut ASAP before your stylist gets booked up!



The holidays take a toll on monthly “me” time, which is why a half-inch of outgrowth is perfectly acceptable when those dollar bills are spent on gifts wrapped under the tree. But, after the 25th those grown out roots may not want to make an appearance at your New Years Eve party! Read this before you get your color done.



If going into the salon isn’t in the cards for you, try a temporary fix with the Color Wow root cover up. This root concealer is a perfect (and more affordable) alternative to ensure your roots won’t be tagging along to see the ball drop with you. Color Wow scores bonus points with us not only for the faux color, but for its flake free formulation and it’s ability to make your hair appear fuller!


Speaking of fuller hair, if you aren’t blessed with a naturally long or thick mane, you might want to opt for some temporary hair! Clip in extensions are the perfect way to add some volume and length for the night totally commitment free. If you’re styling your hair for NYE make sure you get high quality 100% human hair that you can use hot tools on. Try our favorite human hair clip in’s from Rapunzel of Sweden!
