Bubble ponytail

Another fun style for a New Year's event is the bubble ponytail. This style is super easy but can elevate and add a bit of fun to any look. It's a great style to dance around in or transition from a family dinner to a NYE countdown party.

To ensure this style lasts, make sure the base of the ponytail is secure. However don't tie it too tight where it might cause a headache halfway through the night. A trick my hairdresser once used was looping a rubber band and bobby pin to tie my ponytail and it lasted for more than 12 hours without irritating me! It also  didn't leave a hair dent which was great.
