How to Style Your Hair with a Dress?
If you are someone who is really bad at curling your hair, but still want an effortlessly cute hairstyle with your dress try adding studded pins to your hair and you are good to go. For a more casual look, add a headband that matches the color of your dress. During the summers you want your hair out of your face so you can style your hair in a messy bun or a simple braid. Putting your hair back with a beautiful clip is also a great style, today so many Instagram pages and stores sell unique clips. A date night or a formal event calls for voluminous curls.
Tips on choosing a hairdo to go with your dress
- Don’t forget to add a heat protectant before using heat on your hair. Heat can permanently cause a lot of damage to your hair.
- For high ponytails, or simply tying your hair use scrunchies as they are soft, preventing your hair from tangling and unnecessary breakage.
- Use a hairspray to set your curls or hair for the entire day after you style them. Flyaways can also be set down with hair spray and a toothbrush.
