Hairstyle Trends for Formal Occasions

March 12, 2018

Although winter’s chill is still in the air, it’s time to think ahead to our busy spring calendars. This is the time when we’re invited to more events, and some of those will be formal occasions. Whether it’s a wedding, prom, or some other formal gathering, you’ll want to look your best from head to toe. Here are a few hairstyle ideas that look great with any formal dress:

Long hair can be worn down or in an up-do. If you prefer to let your locks flow, try some different wave patterns to add interest and texture. Flowing, romantic waves are perfect for any formal occasion. If you have mid-length hair, consider adding some natural-looking extensions for a more dramatic statement. A half-up look also works very well, with the top layer pinned up with floral accessories and graceful waves flowing down the back. Shoulder-length hair also looks gorgeous with natural waves and curls.

Braids are a great option for formal events since they stay in place well and look great whether they are “messy” or polished. Try French braids, fishtails, or even ponytails kept in place with accessories that match your outfit. Braids also work well for an updo – just braid, twist, and pin in place.

The up-do is always elegant and is a great way to show off your jewelry and dress style. It draws the eye up and makes a sophisticated statement. Up-do’s can be done in a variety of ways, using twists, braids, or knots. Kept in place securely, they can last through the evening and still look flawless.

Up-do’s are not just for long hair. Women with short hair can pull off a fabulous updo with simple braids and twists on the ends. Your hair can be as short as chin-length to pull off the look.

Accessories are a must for formal hairstyles. Depending on the occasion, you may want florals, sparkles, or sophisticated geometric shapes. Be sure that your hairstylist is familiar with the dress you will wear to help you make the right accessory choices.
