With so many stylish celebs celebrating NYE (we’re looking at you, Lucy Hale!), last night was a venerable cornucopia of fashion and beauty inspo. There was one look, in particular, that stood out to us above all the rest, if only for the sheer fact that it was SO different from her everyday style.

Khloé Kardashian, who spent the night with her basketball player beau, Tristan Thompson, went full-out glam for her New Year’s celebrations, debuting a stunning curly style that had us doing a double take.

“Final glam of 2017!” she wrote. “We wanted something fabulous and festive. We are saying so long to the year in a big way.” We’ll say!

Hairstylist Justine Marjan gave us some insight as to how she created the reality star’s uber-voluminous look, writing, “Fun fact: Halfway through this hairstyle your hair looks super short with crazy Curly Sue curls until you use the @ghd_northamericaflat iron (from $112) to relax the curl pattern to make it look more natural! Def. gave Khloé a scare until we were done.” A-ha!

From the looks of things, all that hard work paid off: The mommy-to-be‘s hair was absolute perfection as the clock struck 12 and she ushered in the New Year.

Happy 2018, Khloé!
