Are you planning a special occasion and would like to look dazzling? You already have your outfit, but what is the best hairstyle for you? We have prepared a quick overview of updos, which are sure to catch your fancy. See which of these styles appeals to you and your taste buds.
What are the features that are most important for a special event?
The outfit, shoes, accessories, jewelry, make-up and… the hairstyle. The hair style is the icing on the cake. It completes the look perfectly. We therefore need to take care of a few things.
First, the hairstyle should fit the shape and type of your hair. Not everyone likes curls, bangs, slicked-back hair or an elaborate chignon. It is also difficult to keep your hair perfectly straight and smooth if your hair is prone to frizz. Of course, we don’t forget to match the hairstyle to the dress, especially its cut and neckline.
In addition, a must when it comes to hairstyles for special occasions is durability. None of us wants to look completely different after an hour or even a few hours. We want our hair to stay in place for the rest of the evening.
Pampering Hairstyles: The TOP 5 Hairstyles for All of Us
We like to share with you our top five updos, which are sure to have the perfect look for every woman. There is no doubt that you will find the perfect updo among our suggestions.
The High Chignon
The first hairstyle to try is the high chignon, an ultra-chic and elegant look, reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn’s hair style from the cult classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Dependent on the occasion or your personal preference, you may like to try this style. Dependent on the occasion or your preference, you may opt for a tight chignon with slicked back hair or a loser, more casual chignon with strands of hair sticking out at the sides. This look is particularly suitable for formal events and festive balls.
Contrary to what you might think, you can still wear a ponytail to a big event. Of course, this is only allowed if your hair is long enough or if you have a hairpiece with a fastening system. Make sure it’s as high as possible and make sure you cover the ponytail band with a strand of hair. The high ponytail and the chignon give an instant facelift.
The Hair Basket
A very original updo is also the so-called hair basket, also known as a crown. This updo perfectly combines tradition and modernity. This elaborate updo looks quite difficult to create but there is nothing to stop you from doing it yourself. Additionally, you may like to loosen the braids a bit and take out individual strands at the sides of your face.
Different braided hairstyles are always on trend and still look soft and girly. Side braided hairstyles are ideal for almost any occasion. Celebrities on the red carpet like to wear shoulder-baring braids, especially when they are wearing open-fronted dresses. However, you should lift the hair from the roots, pull the bangs to one side and fix the braid with a firm grip.
The Braid Wrapped in a Bun
Braids come in many different forms and this is why we have chosen one more braided hairstyle for this list. Simply braid the hair at the back, shape it into a chignon, and secure it with hidden bobby pins. In this case, the bangs may also be slightly twisted to frame your face.
