The countdown to your New Year’s Eve bash has begun. You’re just hours away from pop, fizz, clink, and you’ve got a stunning ensemble ready to go, a killer cat eye to pair it with and maybe even a sparkly champagne manicure to show off. All that’s left is a New Year’s Eve party worthy ‘do and you’ll be celebrating the start of 2014 in style. Since the braid played a starring role in 2013 and shows no signs of giving up the stage in 2014, we called in two of our favorite hair masters, Tara Shakespeare and Emma Willis, to show us some braided hairstyles fit for an NYE fête.
The Multi-Braided Bun
Section off ¼ of your hair from behind one of your ears. French braid that section.
Pull the top section into a sock bun. Leave two small sections of hair out of the bun, you’ll braid those later.
Wrap the French braid around the front of the sock bun and pin it into the bun.
Braid a small section of the remaining loose hair from behind the other ear. Wrap it around the back of the bun and pin in place.
