Party Time: Holiday Hair Ideas

2012 is just around the corner, and I've been taking a lot of time thinking about important things like vision boards, resolutions, and things that I just generally plan to do better in the New Year....however, my thought process has shifted a bit, and now I'm thinking about fun stuff like parties and outfits and hair 'dos, oh my!

For this NYE, I'm planning on keeping it cute and low-key by hitting up a couple of house parties. Thanks to my lil sis, (the super shopaholic/fashionista) I have some really nice new clothes, so I'm sure I'll be able to throw a great outfit together. The question remains, what will I do with this hair?

If you're looking for some fierce natural styles to rock for New Year's Eve, look no further. Here is some inspiration:

Buns, curls, knots, sparkles, glitter, colour, and shine! Holiday hair at its best! I usually keep things low-key with a nice twist-out, but might try something new this year...I'm loving that top knot and side bun of locks - perfect to display show-stopping accessories or bomb-@ss makeup! Speaking of my loc'd ladies, visit my homegirl Ro's blog post here for an awesome curly style!

Do you have any big NYE plans? Are you partying it up, or ringing in 2012 at home? What's your go-to special hairstyle, and what is one you'd like to try?
