In need of NYE hair inspiration? A hint of glitz is where it’s at

If there’s one occasion where you can whip out the sparkle with unfettered abandon, it’s New Year’s Eve.

But you don’t have to trawl through your jewellery box like a gleeful six-year-old for all that glitters and glows.

Delicate slides and barrettes can have just as much impact as full-on sparkle, with the added benefit that you don’t have to feel like a clone of Cinderella.

After all, Victoria Beckham might be able to pull off the Disney look when it comes to shoes, but it’s trickier than it might appear. And the risk of glitz overload is still very much alive and kicking in the hair department.

So, if you’re looking for last-minute beauty inspiration this New Year’s Eve, rest assured. We’ve pulled together five snapshot ways of crafting low-key sparkle, as seen on the red carpet this year.

From bold geometric hair pins to whimsical and dainty clips, grab some food for thought, below:
