Special Occasion Hairstyles For Long Hair

September 2, 2014

Don’t get stuck wearing your hair the same for a formal event such as a wedding, or engagement party! Although long hair can often be difficult to style, below are just a few easy examples which will inspire you to create something fun and flirty for your event.

Bouncy curls

Create volume by using velcro rollers in your hair, but remember to place them at different angles to create a natural look. Leave in for 10 minutes and then carefully remove before applying a volumising powder to your roots.

Goddess crown

Spice up your sock-bun by using hair accessories to really personalise your look. For dark hair, use gold accessories which will pop – and draw attention to your crown. For lighter hair such as blonde – silver, black and gun-metal hair pins look amazing since they create drama and juxtapose against the light hair.

Single braid

Fancy creating bouncy curls in our first suggestion, but find this hairstyle too plain? Create a braid behind one ear and plait as close to the head as you can. Then simply secure with bobby pins on the opposite side. Tease the hair at the crown, and finish the look with some hairspray to hold it all together.

High ponytail

Wear your hair in a high ponytail if you want a no-fuss hairstyle which doesn’t require any extra attention. Make this look a little fancy by starting a loose fishtail braid then pinning the hair underneath, and accessorising with a flower.
