Hi, Dames! People always ask me how to pick styles based on my outfit. I will tell you how! Below are the rules I go by when picking a hairstyle for my friends, family, clients, or myself.
Rule #1 Choose a focal point:
What’s it going to be? Your hair OR your outfit? If you have an attention-grabbing ensemble, most likely your hair should be simple and supportive of what you’ve got on (straight, soft, simple and down, or a basic up-do). If you are wearing a quieter outfit, with basic colors rather than loud patterns, say a solid t-shirt, jeans, or a blazer, you can go all out on your hair and makeup to keep a fashionable balance.
Rule #2 Don’t compete with your dress.
If your dress has a high neckline, wear your hair up. If your dress has a low neckline or strapless, wear your hair down. If you are wearing an in-between, the choice is yours.. but refer to rule #1 for guidance on your styling options. Below are some great suggestions:
Rule #3 There’s a time and a place.
If you are dressing for business your hair MUST be neat and smooth. Stay away from sexy, messy, or texturized. You want the focus to be who you are as a person but also to show confidence and structure, not your late alarm clock. Dry Bar has opened up everywhere and it’s a great place to pop-in for a quick blowout before work or an important meeting.
Hope this all makes sense to you. Let me know how it goes!!
