Short on prep time? For a quick and easy NYE style, try Emma Stone's half-up 'do. It requires a fraction of the styling time of a full updo, but still looks chic and polished. Extra credit if you rock the retro cat-eye liner like the Spiderman cutie.

A long side knot is a deceptively sexy style that's sure to stand out in a crowd of rowdy revelers. Leave it loose like Kate Mara to give yourself the "I'm too cool to care about my hairstyle, but I still manage to look amazing" style.

A volumized, side-parted bob like Jayma Mays' is a great option for girls with shorter hair. Full-bodied hairstyles look super-sexy and the side-part keeps it looking modern and fresh. Pair it with a shimmery smoky eye and you'll have your pick of boys to kiss when the clock strikes midnight.

If you've got plans to attend a fancy-pants bash on New Year's Eve, give Marisa Miller's retro waves a try. Throw your hair up in some large velcro rollers, blast them with a dryer for 5 minutes, then let them loose and brush through the waves. Add a shot of shine spray and a classy red lip and you're ready to hob knob with the rich and famous.

Think you can't rock a ponytail at a NYE party? Think again! A textured low pony like Selena Gomez's is a hip way to wear your hair up. Use your fingers to tousle your roots and give the style some natural lift. Wear it with a strapless dress and some eye-catching earrings for a totally on trend look.

Girls with short hair should take a cue from Carey Mulligan for their night-out inspiration: Her piece-y, swooped style looks modern, sexy and straight-up cool. To cop her style, add some pomade to freshly-washed hair and twist ends to create texture. Smooth bangs over to the side and finish with a spritz of flexible-hold hairspray.

Rihanna's bumped up 'do is a great option for girls who want to wear their hair up on New Year's. By pairing loose bangs with a high-volume updo, the fashionable star gives the classic bouffant a modern spin that looks both pretty and edgy.

If there's ever a time to let your curls run wild, New Year's is it. Big, bold ringlets like AnnaLynne McCord's give off that free-spirit vibe that the guys go crazy for. To make the most of your spiraled strands, apply a frizz-fighting lotion and a curl-enhancing mousse, then use your fingers to gently shape curls to desired fullness.

Paper crowns are so boring. Jersey princesses like Snooki know that if you really want to class up your NYE, you've got to bust out a real tiara. See you in Times Square Snooks!
