A hairstyle can become both a highlight of an image and a detail that reduces to nothing all efforts paid in front of the mirror. Our material will tell you how to prevent the latter situation and always look appropriate.
A hairstyle is a key element of the image, which most often determines the choice of accessories and shoes. At the same time, when thinking over the style of a haircut or hairstyle, it is necessary to take into account your constitution, age, status, and the appropriateness of a beauty image in each specific situation. We will figure out the main rules of hair etiquette today!
In the office
The rules of etiquette in the business world imply severity and simplicity of the image, including styling. Therefore, it is better for a businesswoman to choose medium-length hair (not below the shoulder line) rather than a short haircut or a complex hairstyle.
If the company has a dress code, loose hair will look inappropriate. Hairstyles in the minimalist style will successfully fit into the business style: a braid, a ponytail, or a bun. If it is not necessary to collect the hair, strict smooth styling will do.
During the vacation
Loose hair looks most impressive on vacation or as part of a romantic look. At a party or at a gala event, it is better to stand out with a beautiful styling on long hair than a complex hairstyle.
Long hair makes it easier to get curls that are suitable for a date or a casual meeting with a friend. An important advantage of curls is that they can be done to any length, and retro-style curls will perfectly fit even into a business look.
If you plan to go to any event which involves dances, you should not collect your hairstyle – it will easily loosen from sudden movements. It is better to give preference to carelessly collected or, conversely, loose hair. In this case, styling will not require frequent correction and will not constrain movements.
Going to the opera, theater, or dinner party requires an evening haircut. When creating it, you must rely on the style of the image. If it is classically restrained, you can make a complex styling by decorating it with curls, accessories, or rhinestones for hair.
If an original outfit is chosen for a ceremonial event, which will become the central accent of the image, it is better to give preference to simple styling. An evening hairstyle should correspond not only to the chosen style of clothing but also to your character, otherwise, you will experience discomfort and will constantly correct your hair.
Techniques that are aging you
Hairstyling and hair coloring should always be appropriate for your age. A multi-colored “hedgehog” on the head of a 50-year-old lady will cause bewilderment and a smile (unless she has a creative profession).
Young ladies should remember that extra years are added by such hairstyle techniques as bouffant, heavily styling with hairsprays, curls reminiscent of perm styling from the 1990s, as well as the hair ends that are strongly curled to the face, especially if they are of medium length.
Bad manners for everyone
Hair etiquette is a set of rules that are the same for all ladies, regardless of age, physique, social and financial status. Its basic rules are: clean and combed hair, no split ends and burnt strands, appropriate hairstyle.
It is considered bad manners to comb in public places, borrow someone else’s comb, and leave hair that has fallen out somewhere.
