What’s The Best Hairstyle for a Special Occasion?

Throughout life we have so many special occasions where we need to celebrate milestones in our lives and those close to us including sweet 16’s, prom, homecomings, graduations, weddings, holiday’s, first dates, bachelorette parties, and so much more. With so many occasions it can be difficult to always find a great hairstyle. Here are some hairstyle ideas for all styles and occasions.

  • The best way to narrow down your look is to ask yourself some basic questions:
  • Would an updo or down hairstyle look best with my outfit’s neckline?
  • What style looks best with my face shape?
  • Do I want to wear hair accessories?
  • Will this hair style last for the entire event?
  • What is the atmosphere of the event (formal, casual, romantic, exciting, etc.)?

Once you have decided what style you are seeking, eliminated looks that wouldn’t flatter your outfit or face shape, it’s time to decide which hairstyle to wear. Here are some of our favorite looks for all types of hairstyles for a special occasion.

Updo’s for a Special Occasion

Updo’s are vital for special occasion hairstyles. They are perfect for more formal events, but you can also have an updo that is perfect for more casual or romantic looks. If you don’t have enough length for a curly or intricate updo then you can always purchase clip-in hair extensions at your local beauty store. Rather you choose a traditional French twist or a stunning curly chignon, you can’t go wrong with an updo.
