Gorgeous Braided Hairstyles Perfect For New Year's Eve

Say hello to 2016 with the perfect 'do.

With another Christmas in the books, it's time to shift the holiday focus to New Year's Eve. And it all starts with the hair.

This Dec 31st, add a little flair to your New Year's Eve 'do with something a little different. In the video above, Buzz60's Krystin Goodwin walks you through some stylish hair options to try on the big night. And ladies, it seems like braids are all you need to help ring in the new year.

Wrap up 2015 with fishtail crowns, large buns and texture curls that all incorporate stunning standout braids. Whether you want flowing locks or a half-up style, braids are a fun and pretty way to play up your look. Keep braids messy by pulling out loose hairs or create slick side braids that go perfectly into elegant chignons.
