Merry Christmas! Even as you are opening your presents and eating your feast, the chances are you are already surreptitiously thinking about your New Year's Eve celebration and starting to obsess over the perfect outfit, accessories, and hair & make-up. If you are contemplating wearing a statement dress for your New Years party, then you should seriously consider wearing a sleek and chic hair style like a ponytail. There are various ways to wear a ponytail. My favorite hair inspiration, Kate Beckinsale, has been seen sporting a voluminous ponytail quite often. It is the perfect way to vamp up the typical ponytail. It has a very 1950s vintage vibe to it. And it doesn't matter how much hair you have because with the right teasing, it will look just right! Plus a perfect way to put a modern twist to the look is to add an elastic band hair cuffs! They add glam without overpowering the style. To see how to style this hairdo look below!
