Dress up your hair this New Year’s Eve and bring in 2009 with style.
The Big Bang Theory
The big bangs that have been dominating celebrity style on medium-length and long hair can be freshened up for New Year’s. The edge of the bang can either be trimmed to be choppier, leaving a few longer strands in place, similar to Sarah Michelle Gellar’s newest bangs look. Or, style the big bangs into a dramatic sweep across the forehead for your hot 2008 New Year’s Eve hair style.
Belle of the New Year’s Eve Ball
Women with any short hair, medium-length hair and long hair can become the belle of the ball with one simple accessory: a rhinestone tiara. Not just for brides this year, the shiny tiara is whimsical and a bit frivolous, which is exactly what you need to lighten the mood during this economically-questionable holiday season. Style your hair a usual, and try to maintain a natural, free-flowing look. When you put on the tiara you will instantly be excited about the 2009 New Year’s Eve party.
Take it to the Extreme
Another 2009 New Year’s Eve party hairstyle works with what you have. It’s you, but better. This will work for any short hair, medium-length hair and long hair. Whatever your style is, pump it up tenfold. If you normally wear your hair back, sleek it back with some hair wax and secure it tightly.
For hair that is long or medium-length hair that normally worn wavy, create ringlet curls.
Sweep Him Off His Feet
Look like a celebrity returning from the salon when you wear your short hair, medium-length hair and long hair with a dramatic side part and side-swept bangs. Part hair further over than normal. Sweep the bangs and hair across the forehead. Style the rest of the hair as normal. Now you have instant celebrity style for your 2009 New Year’s Eve party.
Left or Right? Which Way Do You Lean?
Bring the side-sweeping to another level when you have long hair. Add a hair product which reduces frizziness and encourages curls. Part hair on one side. The hair will be swept to the opposite side, so choose your best face angle for your 2009 New Year’s Eve hairstyle.
Let hair air dry, scrunching it in your hands to encourage natural waves. When hair is completely dry, gather all of the hair on one side of the head, in the back, putting in an elastic so it is parallel the top of your ear. Experiment with different heights for the side ponytail. For a more relaxed look, or heavy, long hair, gather the hair below the ears.
For an added touch for the 2009 New Year’s Eve hairstyle, use a silver elastic which has some silver, gold or red metallic strands or threads on it.
Flipping Out, Michelle Obama Style
According to Phillip Wilson, of FHI Heat, you can create a Michelle Obma-style flip with a simple technique. This 2009 New Year’s Eve party hairstyle will work on short hair, bobbed hair or medium-length hair that has been cut in a style which works with a flat iron.
Wilson recommends alternating the flip of the hair direction when you use a flat iron (of course he recommends the FH1 Technique flat iron). Flip one layer out, the next one in, and continue from the bottom op until you reach the top layer. For best results, turn the hair out when you iron the top and final layer.

Add some temporary color to your 2009 New Year’s Eve hairstyle with a hair streaker or can of temporary hair color. If you are worried about ruining highlights, use the color on your the underneath layers of hair. Put hair up and color the strands which are showing, which will normally be covered when you wear your hair down. Most of the these temporary colors will wash out in two or three washes. If you really worried about damaging and expensive color job, wear a tiara instead.
