How To Do Your Hair On New Year's Eve, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Ad failed to load

The start of 2018 is nearly here! That means the time has come to harness trusty astrology to determine how to do your hair on New Year's Eve (and if you haven't ascertained your ideal NYE makeup look by zodiac, check that out, stat). No need to let indecisiveness paralyze you, or waste time wondering whether a straight and sleek look, or a mermaid-esque pony, will pair better with your metallic blue shadow. All you need is faith, trust, and the zodiac to guide your beauty way.

Hopefully, you've found the perfect outfit to slay your friends on NYE. If you're a go-getter, you've probably also decided on how to do your makeup. So hair might be your only hangup right now, and that's OK! Hair is hard. I'm a pro makeup artist myself, and I'm still a little hair-inept. Unless I see a step-by-step tutorial that breaks the style down easily for me, I'm stuck with my everyday uniform of semi-vintage-inspired waves.

These 12 videos will make you life super easy, because even the most complex-looking style is a cinch to recreate. So grab that texturizing spray that's been sitting in your bathroom for forever, buy some elastics, and set aside some time for trial and error. This year, astrology is getting us glam AF for NYE.

What is more perfect for a Cancer than literal mermaid hair? Mermaid hair color not necessary to recreate this look, but it certainly does help. You might feel the urge to talk a midnight stroll barefoot along the beach somewhere.
