Keep reading for how to wear our favorite of the formal hairstyle trends – waves.
The tousled waves trend is one you can style yourself! Now hair has so much added body, volume, and texture. If that doesn’t feel formal enough for you, accessories are a gorgeous way to embellish any hairstyle and create your own unique look. Find something that speaks to your style, whether it’s something sparkly, feathery, or a flower.
If you want something bigger than loose curls, amp up the look by wearing ringlet style curls instead. This simple yet ultra glam style gets extra oomph from a bold lip like the bright pink color above or latest burgundy shades. If you’re wearing your hair down, be sure to choose a one-shoulder or strapless dress.
If an updo is the only hairstyle you’ll consider for a formal dance, this gorgeous number takes hair in loose waves and tucks it into a high volume hairstyle that grazes the nape of the neck. We’ve seen similar looks on Angeline Jolie and many more on the red carpet. Maybe it’s your turn to get the look.
Effortless mermaid waves are one of the top trends to try. This gorgeous look is perfect for your next dance, worn down with a hair accessory, styled with added volume, or tucked into an updo. All of these hairstyles would be the perfect pick for upcoming winter formal, prom, or any special event!
