I absolutely love special occasion hairstyles. Weddings, prom, girls night out: it’s always so fun to get dolled up, isn’t it? There are so many ways to wear your hair and deciding whether to wear it up or down, off to the side, curly wavy or straight is really only part of the equation. One of the most important things to remember when getting a special occasion hairstyle is to make sure your ‘do looks fab from every angle. After all, other people will see you–and photograph you–and your hair from every angle!
Ways to make your special occasion hairstyles stand out
When styling hair, I’m always looking for ways to make sure the style will stand on its own, but is also totally unique to the person wearing it. What I find very helpful when I am styling my clients is to include some sort of detailing on both the right and the left side of the head. Inclusion of braids is very popular and always make for such interesting visual detail. And with the myriad of braid styles, they can really help develop a very unique updo.
Another great possibility to make your hair stand out is the add on of hair accessories. There are endless options for additional accessories to use in a hairstyle. Whether you like a little bling or a more organic look with let’s say some fresh flowers, adding a hairpiece to one of your sides is bound to look gorgeous!
