With the New Year just around the corner, everyone is thinking about new looks to help ring in the brand new year. You can try a vintage bob like the one above, add some great color or even go crazy with fancy (yet easy to do) up-dos. Whether you are looking for a new hairstyle to try for a New Years Eve party or a completely new look to wow everyone when you go back to school, then here are some looks you might like! 

My favorite new hair trend so far is the ombre hair coloring; it just looks amazing and blends in with almost any hair type, but works best with wavy hair or soft curls. The great thing about it is that you can really do any color! You can do a color that is lighter than your natural hair color or you can just go crazy with any color you want: blonde, red, purple, blue, or even multicolored.

With all the holiday parties coming up, you are going to need a hairdo that will complement your party dress but will not get in the way. You can never go wrong with a cute ponytail. Try curling your hair with a large barrel curling iron and then running your hand through the curls to soften them. Bring them up into a loose ponytail and then, take a section of your hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic, pinning it from the bottom with a bobby pin. You'll have a polished ponytail that will look effortless. Add braids, headbands, hair pins and other accessories to make your hairdo look even better. Here are some other ideas you can try:

You also cannot go wrong with a big, ballerina bun! But to make it extra special for your night out, try adding braids to make a great statement. Loosely french braid one side of your head until you reach the back of your head and instead of braiding the rest of your hair, just twist it into a cute side bun. Here is an example of this style:

Don't worry if your bun is slightly messy, messy buns look effortless and cute!

Regardless if what you decide to do, be sure to experiment all these styles before deciding on one that works for your hair type and face. But any of these hair styles will be perfect for welcoming 2013! And be sure to check out more hair styles and tutorials in the photo gallery bellow?
