Choosing the right hairstyle for an event can be a difficult task. No matter what your hair type is, there are hundreds of hairstyles to choose from. Some are easy to do, but others require a little more effort.
Whatever hairstyle you choose, know that you don’t have to attempt to make it yourself. If you’re not good at making hairstyles, you can always go to your barber and get it done from there. In case your barber is left-handed, you can recommend these left-handed shears as well.
If you don’t know which hairstyle to get, worry not! We’ve compiled this list of gorgeous hairstyles that always look great.
Face Framing Bob
Bobs are hairstyles that always look good. Luckily for you, they’re back in fashion this season and a definite must-have. When you opt to get a bob, you can choose to get whatever length suits you. Keep in mind though that a bob tends to end above the shoulder.
What makes this hairstyle especially great is its face-framing aspect. Get a bob with tapered layers to give the appearance of more volume. Ask your barber to cut the layers in a way that is rounded, framing your face. You can also choose to get bangs. These will complete the framed look you’re going for.
If going short isn’t an option for you, the loose braid is a great alternative! This hairstyle works best with long hair, but you can attempt it with medium hair as well. For an extra touch of elegance, wave your hair before you braid it.
A loose braid is easy to make. Choose the braid right for you, though we recommend a fishtail braid since that looks best. Once you’ve made the braid, hold it from both sides and pull the braid apart, so it’s not tightly tied together anymore.
Some women prefer to keep their hair open. If this sounds like you, then soft waves are a great hairstyle to try out. Soft waves look good no matter what length your hair is. This style was all the rage in Old Hollywood. Today, it’s a symbol of timeless beauty.
Soft waves are easy to make. Using a hair curler or hair straightener, wrap strands of your hair around the device and curl your hair. Once you’ve curled all of the hair, sweep it over to one side, and you’re done!
Modern Braided Victorian Updo
If your hair is thin, it can be challenging to find a hairstyle that doesn’t make your hair look flat. Luckily, this hairstyle is excellent at masking thin hair because it adds shape and structure. The Victorian updo is a perfect bohemian princess look, both casual and elegant.
For this updo, braid two Dutch braids on each side of your head. Leave the first few strands of hair loose, so they frame the face. At the back of your head, twist the braids into a bun and secure it with bobby pins. You can add decorative bobby pins in the braid to give it a nice bohemian touch.
Half High Pony
Thanks to Ariana Grande, this look is all the rage right now. Not only is it very easy to do, but it also looks effortless. This half-up half-down hairstyle looks best if you have thick hair.
The look is simple enough to do. Gather a small section of your hair and tie it high. If you want to increase volume, you can slightly wave your hair before you tie it up.
The Slicked-Back Wet Look
We don’t have to tell you how fashionable the wet hair look is these days. From the Kardashians to Zendaya, everyone’s walking the red carpet with the perfect wet look. This style is an especially great way to tame curly hair.
To get this look, you’ll have to use a strong pomade that guarantees a high amount of shine. Run the pomade through all of your hair until your hair looks like it’s wet. Once that’s done, sweep your hair back to get that slicked-back look. You can also use a few bobby pins to ensure that your hair stays slicked back.
Long Asymmetrical Cut
There’s no denying that an asymmetrical bob is a chic and gorgeous hairstyle. But, the asymmetrical look isn’t for just short hair. This alluring hairstyle is now a common look for women with all hair lengths. Though, it’s best suited for medium length hair.
Achieving this look is simple, but it’ll require a haircut. Your barber will cut your hair into an asymmetric shape, longer at the front and shorter at the back. It’s that simple! This hairstyle will give your hair a better body and the appearance of more volume too.
Low Messy Bun
A messy bun is a popular hairstyle, perfect for an errand run. But what do you do when you want a gorgeous and elegant hairstyle that requires minimal effort? The low messy bun is your answer.
Simply tie your hair into a messy bun. Leave a few strands loose to give it an effortless touch. For a look more on the elegant side, pair this hairstyle up with some statement earrings or a prominent hair accessory, such as a studded clip.
There’s no shortage of gorgeous hairstyles to choose from. No matter what the occasion, you’ll find a hairstyle that’ll make heads turn when you enter the room. This list is a great starting point to practice different hairstyles.
