8 Glam New Year's Eve Styles for Natural Hair

New Year's Eve styles for natural hair? Yes, with everything that's going on, we know that this year is probably going to be a little different. But typically, New Year's Eve is a time to get your glad rags on. A time to reflect on the growth of the year behind and your goals for the year ahead. It's also a time that has many naturals reaching for the straighteners...

Many of us don't associate beautiful coils and curls with a dressy look and among the most common misconceptions we hear about kinky hair is the line that "it's fun, but not glamorous."

At Afrocenchix we like to bust myths. We believe that natural hair is super versatile and you can certainly look sophisticated without straight hair or extensions. So here are some of our favourite looks from a diverse range of UK bloggers. 

The Fun & Free Fro

Live your best life like Fiona and let your fro run free.

Top tip: apply a little Seal  to the ends of your hair to keep it from snagging on your coat.

The Puff

Embrace your kinks and coils a la Nicky, this look goes with everything!

Top tipdampen your hair with Sheen before gathering it into a bun then tie a silk scarf around it to set the style. Take it off and apply gel after doing your make up - this way the style lasts longer, your hair is well moisturised and you use less gel.

Recently gone natural? Let your curls out to toast the evening with a cute side part like Saabirah.

Top tip: match this look with big earrings to go for glam.

The Shape Up

Hit the barber Sonia style and get a bold new look for your big night.

Top tip: remember to sleep with a bonnet or scarf and keep your hair refreshed so the style looks fresh for longer.

The Unicorn Fluffy Puff

Get like Jessica with carefree glam! This simple look exudes sophistication. 

Top tip: bobby pins are your friend here, double up on pins to keep this style in place as you dance the year away.

The Braided Frohawk

Try out Tri's take on this classic style for a head turning look. 

Top tip: do this style in advance then tie a scarf over this at night to keep it in place. If the mohawk buns look messy, don't be afraid to repin.

The Mid Part Twist Out

If you want a low maintenance style that's high impact in glam then try Mary's look.

Top tip: use the LOC method to ensure soft, defined curls.

The Top Knot

Slay like Yolanda with this simple but stunning bun.

Top tip: accessorise this look with hair jewellery to make it even dressier
