Special Occasion Hair Dos
The four Stages of Success
Special occasions often involve the opportunity to dress up and make an impression. It’s likely that we’ll start thinking about our makeup, outfit, and accessories ahead of time. But what about our hair? For many people, their hair is a last-minute consideration other than a quick brush through! But if we’re really dressing to impress, our hair can lift a look to the next level.
Great hair doesn’t have to mean an extravagant or fussy style. It can be as simple or as elaborate as we want it to be. Whatever our hair type or length, the styles that look best will flatter our features and compliment the outfit we’ve chosen. If you’re planning to make the most of your hair for a special occasion, consider these tips.
1. Start Ahead Of Time
If we have the luxury of being able to plan ahead, we should take full advantage. Start preparing your hair for the event by taking care of it. Condition it with a hair mask, or go for a trim to freshen it up. Grooming details like this are perhaps especially important if you’re going for a simple style or planning to leave your hair down.
Pampering your hair with a few extra products can make all the difference to its shine and manageability. Hair oils can improve the appearance of dry split ends, for example, especially if we use them for a few days before the event. If it has been cared for ahead of time, our hair will look healthy and beautiful on the day or night of the event.
2. Consider Your Outfit
Some outfits benefit from certain hairstyles. If we have a beautiful or unusual neckline, for example, an up-do will show it off and add real elegance to the look. If our outfit has a laid-back, bohemian vibe then loose, textured waves can complete the look. Think about the overall effect you’d like to create as well as areas of the outfit you’d like to show off. An outfit and hairstyle can really compliment each other.
3. Accessories and Hair Pieces
A special occasion can be the perfect time to rock an eye-catching accessory like a dainty headband or jewelled clip. It is also popular to add hair pieces or extensions to add volume, length or thickness. This step is possibly for the more experienced. Hair extension care and upkeep can be major. But it’s worth considering if you’re going for the “wow” factor. An extra bit of sparkle or even flowers can draw attention to even a very simple style. Accessories can give a fun, youthful dimension to any outfit.
4. Practice Makes Perfect
It is normal to feel a bit nervous before a special occasion and there are usually lots of things to prepare. If time allows, practise the style well in advance of the event. Especially if you have never tried it before. If you’re having professional input on the day, it can be worth having a rehearsal or trial of the style ahead of time.
We may like a style in principle but then dislike it on our own facial features. There would be nothing more disappointing than discovering this on the day. Plan ahead, play around, and you can approach the style with confidence when the time comes.
