The way you wear your hair says a lot about you. Though that can be a little stressful, it is also super exciting! You get to wake up every day and choose how you want to wear your hair and you have all the control! Pick a couple of go to’s that work for you no matter what the event.
If you need help picking out those go to’s, or you are just looking for some new ideas on how to spruce up your hair game, then check out these styles below!
1.) High Ponytail
A high pony tail is great because it is so versatile. You can wear this to a fancy event and look super elegant or you can wear it to the gym and fit right in. It is up to you how you wear it, but no matter how, it will look beautiful!
I like to leave pieces down around my face to frame the makeup that I am wearing.
2.) Low Ponytail
Now, it is important to be careful with a low pony tail because done wrong it can actually hurt whatever outfit you are trying to wear it with. But done right, it works so well!
Make sure however you decide to do it emphasizes your face and makeup. Leave the right pieces down framing your face and make sure that you have enough volume so it doesn’t look super oily.
3.) Half Up Half Down
This is the best hairstyle for when you are on the go and need a quick and east way to look polished and finished! Also, if you touch your hair a lot and that tends to make it greasy, this is a good way to prolong your hair washing time.
4.) Up Do
Save this one for your like semi fancy events. Like your friends baby shower or your cousins engagement party. You can YouTube super easy and really regal up dos so that you can accomplish this look at home.
I like to wear an up do when wearing a higher neckline because I think that it emphasizes your face and whatever makeup you decide to wear that day.
Though the picture below might be a little bit excessive for you, barrettes have made a come back and they are a fabulous way to spruce up any hairstyle! You can wear them when your hair is up, down, in a bun, whatever. They add just the right amount of sparkle and shine to any outfit.
They are not even super expensive to buy. Most of the time you can pick them up locally or online for like $5.99 for 3 different styles of barrettes.
If you are looking for a way to add something unique and some sparkle, then look no further!
6.) Curling Iron
Curling your hair is much more difficult than straightening it because there are so many different ways to do and so many decisions to make.
Depending on the length of your hair, you need to choose the size curling iron you want to use. It also depends what kind of curls you are looking for. It is definitely doable but just do your research and practice first!
The one and only thing (well maybe not the only) but definitely so important to remember when straightening your hair, is to spray it with heat protection before you begin. You spend years and hundreds of dollars to grow and take care of your hair! Don’t spoil it with one fell swoop of your over heated straightener! Protect that hair and take the proper precautions!
Also, moisturize with argon oil seeing as heat tends to dry out our hair.
8.) Slicked Back
This is the best way to wear your hair when you are on your fourth day of not washing and you have an important meeting or class that you are rushing to. Not only does it look super planned and polished and sophisticated, you don’t have to worry about it looking too greasy. No one can tell grease and hairspray apart!
So if you are waiting to wash your hair but you have somewhere important to make it to, don’t fret. Grab your spray bottle and dampen your hair, then get to work with a comb brushing everything back. Once you have it in the style you want, spray that baby until it shines like the sun!
We don’t all have this talent, I know. So don’t worry if this style just isn’t in your wheelhouse. You have 9 other fabulous options! If you want to learn how to braid though, there are tons of easy to follow YouTube tutorials you can check out!
If you already know how to braid, then don’t be afraid to add that talent into your every day wardrobe. There are hundreds of different kinds of braids: fish tale, dutch french braid, french braid, etc. Pick one and get to braiding! This is a talent that not everyone has so show it off!
10.) Messy Bun/Top Not
Ah the elusive messy bun. Not as easy to achieve as one may think. Or as the name lends us to think when we begin our attempts. Usually the quick messy bun takes time to arrange and perfect before we get that perfectly messy look.
My advice is to take your time when doing the perfect messy bun or top not. It is supposed to look effortless, though we know it isn’t, don’t loose that look in your haste to get it perfect.
Once you have the perfect bun, don’t be afraid to spruce it up with the aforementioned barrettes or even a scarf or a headband!
