While the usual low-slung pony is great for day-to-day, holiday party season provides the ideal opportunity to experiment with a different style. That’s why we’ve teamed up with one of our favorite sites, Beauty High. For the last six weeks, they’ve sent over runway shots to inspire you to try something new and today’s their last post: Hairstyles perfect for ringing in the New Year.
If you’re the kind of girl who would rather wear her hair down every single day than toss it up in a sleek chignon, we have a feeling that the bohemian vibe that was spotted on the runways during the fall 2012/2013 fashion shows is just for you. From soft waves at Altuzarra to strict center parts and “twists” at Rachel Zoe, this season was all about being boho chic.
You can easily make this look work for you this New Year’s Eve. Loose waves don’t have to be messy—they’re not about frizzy hair, the key to the look is to have a slight wave that is just a touch disheveled. Below are some of our favorites from the runways for you to mimic!

The models on the runway at Honor had strict middle parts and barely-there waves. Their hair was given just a little bit of texture with styling product, dried, and let loose.

The loose waves at Paco Rabbane had no clearly defined part, which made us love them even more. Plus, you don’t have to worry about your curls falling throughout the night—that’s what you want to happen.

The models at Rachel Zoe had hair that was straightened and then roughed up a bit, before adding strategically placed twists on each side.

The loose waves at Altuzarra had the perfect bohemian edge—with just a touch of texture beginning around the top of the ears, this style gives a laid-back feel to any ensemble.

The look at Richard Chai Love was very similar to many of the loose waves seen above. The key to all of these is to pick a simple, center part (very ‘70s) and brush out your curls until they are perfectly disheveled.
