Can hair problems ruin your gorgeous outfit? Yes!19.07.2022
The perfect top is tucked in to the perfect skirt and you are dancing in your room with the perfect high heels. Your nails look flawless, your makeup looks flawless, and your eyeliner is as sharp as your stilettos.
Only one thing is left before you go out on the town: take care of your hair!
There are many options, but it’s hard to choose. This article will help you narrow down your options. These are the five most common hair mistakes that can ruin your beautiful outfit.
It’s a good idea in fashion and hairstyling to choose a feature that you want to highlight. If your special feature is your elegant neck and all its ornaments, it’s important to keep your hair down so that it doesn’t distract from what you are displaying.
Letting your hair down
High necklines, chokers, intricate collars (such as turtlenecks or halter tops), backless dresses and the like will draw attention to your neck. If you have a lot going on in your neck and shoulders, don’t let your hair fall down.
THE FIX: If you want to make a statement, go for an updo with neck jewelry and a unique neckline. Your hair should be loosely combed and a couple of curls on each side will frame your face.
To keep your focus down on the lower part of your hair, pin it up at your chin and behind you ears for shorter styles.
Similar to the above, if your collar is plain, it can look like you don’t put enough effort. Or that you are anticipating a huge task that will require you to keep your hair down. While ponytails and buns with a no-nonsense neckline are great for when you have to get down to business, it is not the best look to wear on a date with your girlfriends or your babe.
For a more glamorous look, let your hair fall in a loose, flowing cloud. This will add volume and style to your basic necklines.
A V-neck top with a accentuated decolletage is another reason to keep your hair down. Tumbling tresses will draw attention to your cleavage and highlight your chest.
THE FIX: Don’t be like Corinne Bailey Rae by letting your hair down. Instead, blow-dry your hair upside-down and use volume-building products. This will keep your hair full and shiny instead of being flat.
You can sleep with your hair up in a bun, or with rollers if you are short on time. When you wake, you will have woken-up-like this waves.
Match your hair length with your dress
When it comes to the length of your hair, this is a good rule of thumb: Shorter dresses are more casual and fun, so you can pair them with flirty, playful ‘dos. For formal events, long dresses are required. Long hairstyles should be elegant and regal.
There are also laid-back maxi dresses and business-like cocktail dresses. What do you do?
THE FIX: Decide what mood you want your look to portray and have your hair styled accordingly. To match your short business skirt, have your hair pulled back in a ponytail. However, don’t wear twin braids with a gown.
You shouldn’t be afraid of experimenting with your hair in the same way as you experiment with fashion. But, keep in mind what is appropriate and what type of personality you are trying to convey.
Match your hair color with your outfit
When planning wardrobe changes, you should consider your hair color and skin color. If you are preparing for a future hair color change, you should also consider the reverse.
You can change your undertones from warm to cool by going from red to raven black. If your wardrobe is predominantly in blues and silvers, you might need to invest in reds or golds. You can also forget about the fuchsia pink top that you keep for special occasions.
You can also expect to wear nothing that matches your hair color if your hair is dyed a bold color such as blue.
THE FIX: Make sure you plan well before changing your hair color. You shouldn’t believe you should not go for what your heart desires, but do your research and budget for new clothes and makeup to complement your new look.
Tip: For practicality’s sake invest in neutrals!
Take care of your hair
Hair that is frizzed, dry, or split can ruin even the most fashionable and fashion-forward look.
Hair that is damaged is difficult to style and hide. While hats are a great way to make a statement and hide your love life, you can’t wear them 100% of the time. And almost 100 percent of all the time they won’t work.
It is better to prevent hair loss than treat it. So don’t fail your meticulously-put-together outfit by capping it off with a head of unhealthy, damaged hair!
THE FIX: Hair care is easier said than done.
To prevent shampoo stripping your natural oils, shampoo every other day. Use a conditioner that replenishes protein and increases moisture. Rinse the conditioner after allowing it to sit for three minutes.
Avoid using hot styling tools. The heat can dry out the hair and make it dry and brittle.
Regularly trim your hair to remove any damaged ends and to keep it healthy from root-to-tip. Take care of what you eat. Avoid oily foods and make sure to get vitamins to keep your hair healthy.
Hairstyles are the centerpiece of any outfit. They also frame every makeup creation. So put as much thought into your hair as you do into your outfit.
You can use your hair to draw attention to certain elements or hide them. Make sure you have a beautiful hairstyle that suits your mood and color.
