You’ve flipped through the pages of a dozen fashion magazines, looked up images of red carpet looks, and even watched a few too many hours of YouTube videos dedicated to the best hairstyles to match your new collection of statement earrings, but you still find yourself stumped with a brush in one hand and a bottle of hair spray in the other. “How am I supposed to style my hair to match these earrings?” you ask. There is no need to struggle and stress any further; no one needs more stress in their life. Plus, hairstyles and jewelry are meant to be fun!
We may not have access to the world’s best hairstylists like the A-list celebrities on the red carpet do, but that’s okay! We’re able to use our resources to still be the belle of the ball at our companies’ holiday parties this season. Matching our jewelry to our outfits is often a fun-filled time, but sometimes, doing our own hair can be quite challenging. Here are our favorite hairstyles that go perfectly with statement earrings that are also easy enough to do on your own.
Ariana Grande truly revolutionized and majorly popularized the high ponytail when she emerged to stardom in 2011. Not only do we belt out her bangers on a regular basis, but many of us look to her for fashion and beauty inspiration, and her ponytail is no exception. A high slicked-back ponytail is not only elegant and clean but also extremely easy. This style allows your earrings to be center stage as the hair draws the eyes up and allows the jewelry to show off and be the star. Rose gold studs are a best seller to be matched with a rose gold cocktail dress and strappy high heels.
Stud earrings can range from playful and fun to romantic and daring depending on what you’re going for on your night out. The wide range of choices is fit for both the office and the after-party and won’t distract from your natural beauty. Instead, its role is to enhance it! We’re adding the diamond studs to our wish list.
If you’re known to love having your locks down but still wish to show off your statement jewelry, the straight middle part tucked behind your ears look is an easy fan favorite. This look is easily achieved by straightening your hair (don’t forget the heat protectant!) and using a teasing comb to draw a straight line from your nose down the middle of your hair and tucking it behind your ears. Finish with a medium-hold hairspray or use bobby pins to secure and voila, you’re ready to show your glam off to the world. Match your hairstyle with a pair of large sterling silver hoops or dangly gold chandelier pieces to draw the eye of everyone in the room.
We’re not talking a tight ballet bun or messy man bun. This is the perfect style to last all throughout a big event or night out where you won’t find yourself in need of a constant brush or touch-up. With a low bun style, you can show off your jewelry in the sleekest of ways. Bonus points if you have multiple piercings that cascade up your ear. Check out these cool piercing ideas if you’re looking to expand your piercing count. Luckily, as our society progresses forward, we no longer have to worry if our employer or grandma is offended by the amount of jewelry we choose to don on our bodies.
What we wear has such a huge impact on our lives, and making a statement every day can truly elevate the way we feel about ourselves and the way we glide through life. Even the simplest of hairstyles and accessories can be the key to feeling and looking your best.
