5 Hair Styling Tips for Special Occasions
There are times when you have to attend a special occasion or an event when you have to make an extra effort to look more beautiful. Aside from your outfit, makeup, and accessories, you also have to make sure that you wear your hair appropriately for the event. Fortunately, there is a place that you can go to for your hair styling needs. Holiday Hair Salon specializes in making sure that women who need to have their hair styled will walk out of the salon satisfied and ready for the night.
Your hair stylist can help you achieve the look that you want and even make some recommendations on what will look good on you. However, it will be better if you can get involved and even decide on your hair’s final look. To get you started, here are a few ideas and hairstyles that you can consider and discuss with your stylist.
1. Half Up and Half Down
This is a great choice of hairstyle because it can be worn from a special dinner to a formal event but can also be worn during more casual days. To start styling, your hair needs to be curled to your desired curl size. Then, comb your hair back in a crown section near the roots. Make sure that the crown is smoothened out for a better look. Once done, add the hair from the top and sides and then shape into your desired bouffant. Use Bobby pins to put it in place and reshape loosened curls if needed.
2. Crown Braid
Braids are very popular not just for casual wear but also for formal events. They can also work for all age groups and not just among kids and teens. In fact, some even consider braids to be a very romantic style which can turn heads in any affair. To style your hair in a crown braid, section your hair in the crown area into a circle and then clip it out of the way.
Start braiding hair from the center part and then back to the nape on both sides. Make sure that you secure the braids into the back of your head and cover with center hair. Next, roll the ends of loose hair into a roll near the braided hair. Secure the rolled hair over the loose braids and pin onto the braided hair near the nape. To create more texture, pull braids apart carefully.
This style can work for all hair types, but if you have fine hair, you can add more texture by adding a few curls before beginning.
3. Smooth and Straight
The smooth and straight hairstyle is a classic look and easy to achieve too. It does not only look beautiful, it is also a timeless style which can be worn in any event, partnered with any outfit.
You can achieve this look with a blow dryer and a hair straightening iron. First, you need to apply heat protectant to damp hair. Comb through your hair using a wide tooth comb. You can also apply a smoothing cream to damp hair and comb through. Using a paddle brush, dry your hair using a blow dryer, brushing often for a smoother look. Once your hair is completely dry, use a hair strengthening iron for a better and longer lasting finish.
4. Curly Ponytail
This style will look stunning if you have long hair as the ponytail will be fully emphasized. It is a great choice to create an illusion of a fuller and thicker hair. You just have to section your hair across the back of the head from ear to ear and secure the bottom part with a ponytail. Use a good hairspray on both sections. Then, curl the top section and ponytail with a curling iron. For more volume, back comb the top section towards the front, crown, and sides. Smooth your hair back into another ponytail on top. Smoothen and pull accent pieces out and finish the whole style with a hairspray for a stronger hold.
5. Full Down Styled
This is another classy look which will not disappoint in any event. While your hair is still damp, apply a volumizing product to the root area. Massage it in using only your fingers to ensure that the product will be distributed evenly. Next, apply a volumizing gel or foam throughout your hair and then comb through. Blow dry your hair using a paddle brush and finish off with a cream or serum.
Choose which among these hairstyles will work well with your outfit and feel free to discuss with your hairstylist for any tweaks and modifications. For sure, the stylists at Holiday Hair will know what to do and will even give their expert recommendations. Whatever hairstyle you choose, you can definitely rock it with beauty and elegance.
